Hannah Smith


Hannah was the daughter of Henry Smith [TAG 10:174].[1] Hannah's parentage is proved by the will of Henry Smith, in which he bequeathed to his grandson, John Knapp [FOOF 1:575].[1]

Marriage and Children

Hannah married by 1661 (eldest child born Stamford 24 Nov 1661) at Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, to Caleb Knapp.[1]

Death and Legacy

Hannah Smith, wife of Caleb Knapp, did not die in 1685! It was her step-mother, Anne (?????)(Andrews) Smith, who died at that time. Hannah, wife of Caleb Knapp is mentioned in the Will of her father in Jul 1687, but not mentioned in the Will of her second husband, Thomas Lawrence, Jr. Thus she died between 4 Jul 1687, the date her father died & dated his Will and 1691, when Thomas Lawrence, Jr made his Will in which he mentions his step-son, John Knapp, but not his wife, Hannah.

Anne (?????)(Andrews) Smith, was not the daughter of Giles Smith as many early writings are want to claim.
