Hannah Eyre

1750 - 1835

Father Francis Eyre
Mother Mary Dakin
1st Husband Joseph Redfearn
2nd Husband Ralph Bramwell
Children Mary, Joseph, Ann, Francis Eyre, Abraham, Abraham, Ralph


Hannah was born in Abney in 1750 (1), the second daughter of Francis & Mary, having an elder sister Mary (2). A younger sister Ann followed in 1753 (3), however both Ann and their mother died shortly afterwards (4)(5). Her father remarried Elizabeth Skidmoor in 1754 (6).

She married Joseph Redfearn, also of Abney, in 1772 (7), and their first child, Mary, was born the following year (8). Their only son Joseph was born in 1775 (9), and their youngest daughter Ann in 1778 (10).

Her husband died the following summer (11), and then her father early the next year (13). It seems that she and her children probably lived with her stepmother after this (12), at least for a few years until her second marriage.

She married Ralph Bramwell in 1784 (14)(22). Their eldest son was born the folliwng year, and named in honour of her father - Francis Eyre Bramwell (15). They had three more sons, but each died when just a few months old - Abraham in 1787(16)(17), another Abraham in 1789 (18)(19), and Ralph in 1790 (20)(21).

Some time after the birth of their children, Hannah and Ralph moved to Litton, where Hannah died on 7th September 1834 (22). She was buried three days later in Hope (23). Her husband Ralph survived her by three years (24)
