Hannah's grandparents were George Glover and Alice Lamboll. Her great-grandparents were George H. & Sarah Lamboll and her gtgt-grandparents were Henry & Mary Lamboll. Note the Lamboll family members were repeatedly arrested and persecuted for not belonging to the "king's church". Their books and writings were confiscated and possessions sold to pay the fees for their repeated illegal jailing, When their cases came to court they were dismissed but the damage had been done and was not repaid.

Hannah was born in Bucklebury, Berkshire Co, England after her parents married in Oct 1680 and before they left for America in Aug 1682. Her siblings John & Alice both died before 1711 leaving no survivors.

Hannah's father, John, was a surveyor. When the family arrived in Birmingham, Chester County John obtained 100 acres of land from Hannah's grand-uncle William Lamboll. (Wm. had purchased the rights to 625 acres).

In 1698 Hannah married John Buckingham in the Brandywine Baptist Church. Hannah was one of the 15 founding members of this church.

She and John had 11 children. They were:
1. Hannah, m. John Heath, 1 known dau, Elizabeth, m. Jacob John
