• 1564 inscription on a tomb at Careby Churchyard: “Here is interred the remains of Sir ________ Hatcher of the ancient family of Hatchers, for many generations the lords of this manor.” This is likely John’s grandfather.
• There are researchers that believe William Hatcher the immigrant was the s/o the older brother of Sir John, Henry Hatcher married to Elizabeth Livingstone, who apparently had a son named William. The timeline for William being a son of John is the primary support for this relationship, as well as his financial ability to acquire land in the colonies.
