52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - #36 Hannah Tanner

My paternal 6th great grandmother Hannah Tanner was born around 1687 probably in Virginia. I don't know if the birth year I have is correct. Her father was Thomas Tanner, but I don't have a mother listed. Some family trees on ancestry.com list her mother as Mary Atwell. Hannah had at least one sister named Frances. See the will index below for Thomas Tanner.

Name:Hannah Tanner
Description:Daughter
Date:10 Aug 1708
Notes:Tanner, Thomas, 10 August 1708; 29 September 1708. Sister Hannah Tanner of Honiton in Devon if living; daughters Frances and Hannah Tanner 150 acres of land.
Prove Date:29 Sep 1708
The index record for the will of Hannah's father Thomas dated 1708. From ancestry.com

Hannah married John Aubrey/Awbrey and was the mother of Hannah, Jemima, Kernhappuck, Keziah, and Chandler (b. 1710 and my 5th great grandfather). She was the grandmother of Martha Aubrey (who married Philip Pendleton), my 4th great grandmother.

I have that Hannah died in 1724. Her husband John died in 1726.
