  General Notes:

There is an item in the 1846 The Christian miscellany, and family visitor 1846 referring to son John and a connection with a "Mr Doar"

It seems likely that Abraham Doar moved into John's house after the death of Hannah - there by 1881




John Smedley, b abt 1796 Sandiacre, Lace Manufacturer (as on MAS 1837 marriage) husband of Hannah with 3 children in 1851 and 1861. In 1861 he is in Town St, Sandiacre with house and shop not far along from William Doar b 1826.

In 1871 William Smedley is next door to Abraham Doar.

This marriage fits with Hannah being born Bestwood Park 1851C and Bulwell 1861C(even closer to Nuthall) - no other Notts candidates from 1815 to 1851

So we either have John m Ann Cook (b 1797 Notts) abt 1815 - Ann also known as Hannah and she lives on until after 1871 -or-
Ann (also known as Hannah ) dies between 1830 and 1832 when John marries Hannah Walker -or-
its another John altogether tho that seems unlikely considering the Town St connection and occup Lacemaker from WD/MAS marriage cert.
