Hannah Sterry
born April 1795–February 1796
  in Longhope, Gloucestershire
died very roughly 1866

The identification here is a little more tentative than I would like, but I think sound enough. The chain of reasoning here is:

  • we know the date and place of birth of the adult Solomon Hart
  • there is an IGI christening record for a Solomon Hart which fits the date and place
  • the parents of the infant Solomon Hart are John and Hannah
  • two years earlier there is an IGI christening record (same parent names and place) for a John Sterry Hart
  • Sterry looks like a surname, perhaps mother's maiden name
  • there is a record of the marriage of a John Hart (of Blaisdon) and Hannah Sterry (of Longhope) in Longhope in 1816
  • census records show a married Hannah Hart, born in Longhope
  • Hannah's date of birth from the census records would be about 1795

The Sterry Worldwide site has a record of the baptism of a Hannah Sterrey in Longhope (All Saints) on 21 February 1796.
