About 1784–1850

My 4th great grandmother

Hannah Benson, my four times great grandmother, was the wife of William Warner (1789–Before 1850) of the village of Howden, in Yorkshire, England.

She was born in England about 1784 (her burial record says she was 66 years old when she died in 1850).1 No information has been found about her parents or siblings.

For information about William and Hannah’s family together, please see his page.

Hannah died in Montreal on September 11, 1850. Her burial was recorded in the Acts of the Christ Church Cathedral.1
