      John Hanson, grandfather of the Pres.,bearing the same name, was transported to Md. as an indentured servant by William Plumley of Barbados sold in the winter of 1661-1662 to Edward Keene of Calvert County, Maryland. He was unrelated to Anders (Andrew) Hansson. GEORGE ELY RUSSELL, THE AMERICAN GENEALOGIST 63: 211-213 (1988).

      (MYTH: "Andrew Hanson and his 3 younger brothers, (Randolph, William, John)orphans, arrived in New Sweden with Gov. Printz and lived with the Gov. on Tinicum Island until 1653 when they moved to Maryland. John Hanson born abt 1630 in Sweden, settled in Charles County, Maryland. about 1656 as as grandfather of John Hanson, first Pres. under the Articles of the Confederation. "George A. Hanson, OLD KENT: THE EASTERN SHORE OF MARYLAND (1876)".
      FACT: "Anders Hansson and his brother, Matthias Hansson arrive in New Sweden in 1641". "They were among the freemen protesting Printz's harsh rule in 1653 thereafter fled.". "Anders made if safely to Maryland; Matthias Haansson, however, died, having apparently been one of the 2 escapees who were overtaken and slain by Indians employed by Gov. Printz's sone in law, Johan Papegoja." Dr Peter S. Craig, "THE 1693 CENSUS OF THE SWEDES ON THE DELAWARE RIVER (1993)".)

      A George A. Hanson, entitled "Old Kent:The Eastern Shore of Md", which created the hoax story that the immigrant John Hanson was one of 4 brothers who came to New Sweden in the care of Gov.Printz, and That his father had died in battle of Lutzen, fighting next to Gustavus Adolphus, and that this father had married Swedish royalty(a granddaughter of the Swedish King, Gustavus VASA)." "Every part of the story was a hoax, which (unfortunately) was picked up published by many subsequent writers, none of whom bothered to search for the facts".
