Ernest Hemingway Hancock connection

Hi. I'm trying to confirm a connection to my Hancock family from Nova Scotia and that of Caroline Hancock (Ernest Hemingway's grandmother). Does anyone have any information on Ernest Hemingway's Hancock line. I have found information in other trees on Ancestry that make the connection but sources are vague and uncertain. Ernest appears to have come from John Hancock b.1771 Wedmore, Somerset, England and Sarah Tyley b.1780 Wedmore, Somerset, England through a son Alexander Hancock b.1814 Wedmore, England. My Family appears to come from this line through Alexander's brother Thomas Tyley Hancock b.1799, Somerset England. I believe this Thomas Tyley married Maria Catherine Salsman in Nova Scotia and had my Great Great Grandfather Charles Albert Hancock (1850 - 1930). I'm not sure this lineage is correct because sources are vague. Any information or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Allen, Charles is also my husbands great grandfather and Thomas Tyley is his great great Grandfather. My research shows that you are correct, Alexander (E.H's Great Grand father) is Thomas's brother. Alexanders daughter Caroline is Ernest Hemingways Grandmother

Information has not been confirmed as being correct.  John Hancock 1737-1793
