Did You Know?

  • Thomas Relf and Hannah Jerman were both able to sign their names in the parish register when they married in 1777.
  • In 1841 Hannah Jerman was living with James Relf and his family in Street End in Heathfield. I haven't been able to find any record of James's birth (which according to later censuses was around 1788 in Heathfield), but I suspect he may have been her son. This would explain why she was living with him, a birth year of 1788 is not impossible given the baptism and burial dates of Hannah's other children, and the names of James's children and grandchildren overlap with the names of Hannah's children (including the highly unusual name shared by Zebulon Relf and Zebulun Relfe). But if he is Hannah's son, it's puzzling that there is no record of his baptism and he didn't name one of his daughters Hannah.
  • John Harmer had two wives called Hannah, Hannah Mepham and Hannah Jerman.
