Hannah left no trace of her life until she married on 6 May 1690 in the same church. Her husband was Samuel Eyre.

Hannah and Samuel had at least seven children. The baptism of the first child, William, in 1691, describes Samuel Eyre as “of Hazelwood”.

In 1693, Hannah’s father William died, and left a lovely inventory which included a half-headed bedstead, a candlestick, a bacon flitch, two looms, and two cows.

Hannah died in June 1721 and was buried at St Alkmund’s church.
