All I know of Hannah before she married Alexander Urquhart, is that she was born in Sheffied, Yorkshire, England in 1864. I have been to Sheffield, it was an industrial town from at least the 1600's, mainly due the its river, and its history goes back much further. It was the centre of the silver plate industry in the late 1700's, and then the steel industry in the 1800-1900's.
In 1884 Hannah and her sister Sarah immigrated aboard the ship Texan to Australia.
