Hannah Warner might have been the daughter of William Warner and his wife Hannah Benson. She was born in 1822 and baptized in Howden, Yorkshire on August 31 of that year.1 2

Because her mother’s name is not given on the baptismal record, and because William and Hannah already had a daughter who, although baptized “Maria Warner,” was known later in life as “Hannah Maria Warner,” it’s possible that this Hannah’s parents were a different William and Hannah Warner.*

Because of this uncertainty, I have decided to document Hannah’s existence on this page, but not to include her in the list of confirmed children on William’s page.

In the Warner family’s entry in the 1831 Census of Lower Canada, only the head of household is identified by name. The entry does, however, list the number of members by age grouping and gender, so we know that the family included three girls born between 1818 and 1825. Hannah might have been one of them.

The entry in the 1842 Census of Canada East lists two women, one married and one unmarried, who were born between 1798 and 1828. Again, Hannah might have been one of them.

No further information about her has been found.


* The source for this information is a transcription of a handwritten baptismal record from Howden, Yorkshire. The record says that Hannah was the daughter of William Warner and his wife Hannah (no maiden name given). Howden was not a large town, and nothing has been found to suggest that it was home to more than one couple, of child-bearing age, named William and Hannah Warner.
