The Hankeys of Churton died out when John Hankey, gentleman, of Churton (who bore the Hankey arms in 1566), had only six daughters.

The Hankeys of Fenchurch Street were almost certainly descended from a son of one of his predecessors, though the evidence for this may have been lost owing to the destruction of the registers of Broxton by fire.


The first of the family recorded in London was Randall Hankye, in the 1581 Subsidy Roll for St Olave’s Parish.

Thomas Hankey married Margaret Lashley on 17 Feb 1594 at St Lawrence Pountney.
