Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1616, England
Death: Dec. 1, 1680
Hampden County
Massachusetts, USA

Honor Capen was born say 1616, daughter of BERNARD CAPEN {1633, Dorchester}. She married William Hannum by about 1637. [The will of Dorothy (Capen) Upsall, widow of NICHOLAS UPSALL , names, among others, sister Honor Hannum]. She died at Westfield on 1 December 1680.
They had six children: John, Abigail Sackett, Joanna, Elizabeth Bushrod, Mary Allen, & Susanna.
In his list of "some omitted in former records being gone yet had children born here," Mathew Grant included "William Hanum," crediting him with four children born at Windsor. The eldest son, John Hannum, would have been born at Dorchester, probably not long before the move to Windsor. If the daughter Susanna, who died at Windsor in 1647, was born in Windsor, then Matthew Grant later ignored her in his accounting for this family.
William Hannum and his wife testified against Mary Bliss in her 1656 witchcraft trial, but the testimony was only half-hearted, and their apparent animus toward Parsons was denied by various other neighbors, and Hannum and his wife seem to have soon reversed their position.
