Anne Harward was the only daughter of Thomas Harward by his wife Alice. She married William Canning in 1610 and they lived at the Grange, Bretforton. Thomas Harward's parents, John Harward and his wife Agnes, had leased the manor of Bretforton from the Abbey of Evesham before the dissolution of the monasteries. Thomas and Alice Harward lived in the manor house at Bretforton.

Anne (Harward) Canning died in 1618. William Canning subsequently married Mary, sister of Endymion Porter. Their son Endymion Canning, bequeathed a sum of money to the poor of Bretforton. Joan Harward was a sister of John Harward (and uncle of Thomas Harward). (Victoria County History of Worcestershire, page 366 - - 1906)
