Hannah Burwell Betts
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 30, 1687
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Nov. 17, 1745
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA

Daughter of John and Hannah Lockwood Burwell, who came from England around 1685 (Hannah Lockwood Burwell went on to marry Thomas Hanford after John Burwell's death). Birth and death dates and Hannah's maiden name supplied to the creator of this memorial by Hannah Betts' descendant, Katherine M.

As an interesting aside, Hannah was the sole heir to her father's holdings, both here and in England. Unfortunately, her father's large English estate was usurped by "wrongful possessors," and was never recovered by Hannah or descendants. (information from A Catalogue of the Names of the Early Puritan Settlers of the Colony of Connecticut by Royal Ralph Hinman).
