This part of my site is dedicated to all members of my branch of the Hann family; throughout the world, together with elements of related families and their relationships to each other. I have not included anybody that I know to be still alive and have used information that I have gathered over the years from a number of primarily public sources but also other members of the wider Hann family.

It is not my intention to cause offence by the inclusion of any of the data concerned. If this is the case please contact me and I shall arrange for amendments to be made.

If you are able to add anything to the data included in the site and are willing to share it with others, please contact me also.

Under charts (above) I have included links to five charts - those of

John Hann of Dalwood (born ca 1655) from whom my branch of the family are descended

Thomas Hann (born ca 1745) who was the ancestor of a branch in Bridport

Thomas Hann (born ca 1769) who was the ancestor of the branch in Wootton Fitzpaine

William Hann (born ca 1788) who was the ancestor of the branch in Thorncombe

Matthew Catchlove, believed ancestor of my paternal grandmother's branch of the Catchlove family of West Sussex

The Hanns should be related but, as yet, I have not found the link.
