THE FAMILY HISTORY

The ancestry of William Hobson has not been settled. All evidence, though, indicates that he was most likely related to the Hobsons of Chatham County, NC who were descended from George Hobson. Davis and others have written much about George Hobson. This information has recently been collated, updated, and expanded by Jay Hobson in his The Hobson Family. Therefore, I won't go into the details here of George Hobson and his descendants. However, further details are contained in my "Roots V" genealogy file of the Descendants of George Hobsonlink to be added

The descendant of George Hobson most likely to have been William Hobson's father was William Hobson of Chatham County, NC
