Peter Bowne Hankinson
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 17, 1810
Monmouth County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Jul. 30, 1873
Mount Pleasant
Monmouth County
New Jersey, USA

Son of Catherine Bowne & Kenneth Hankinson Jr.
Baptised: 12 October 1811, Old Tennent Church, Manalapan, NJ. Date of birth from family genealogical records. Date of death from death record, Trenton, NJ.

Burial location questionable. At first I placed Peter B. Hankinson in Old Tennent where there is said to be a Peter Hankinson with no information. This is more likely an uncle or cousin. He never remarried after the early death of his wife and lived very close to the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. I do believe he was buried alongside his wife, Margaret West (Smith) Hankinson, although there is no tombstone information.

On many genealogy websites you will find a non-existant child listed for Peter Bowne Hankinson. This error was due to someone's misreading of the old faded Bible record located at M.C.H.A. in Freehold. An early genealogist posted this information on the internet and it has been copied and reposted to the point that it is now considered to be correct. I have listed his three children here as found in family records.
