Third Generation: Hannah Warner < William Warner < William Warner

My 3rd great grandaunt (great great great great aunt)

Hannah Warner was 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

If she survived childhood, Elizabeth would have emigrated to Lower Canada with her parents sometime between 1827 and 1830, settling on land near the town of Frampton.

No further information about this Hannah has been found.

To avoid confusion, it is worth pointing out that Hannah had an older sister, born in 1811, who was baptized “Maria Warner” but was known later in life as “Hannah Maria Warner.


* 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.
