Her parents are difficult to work out without the certificate. Harriet is 48 and married to George Draper by 1861 so possibly Hagar is the daughter of her son John who would have only been 16 at the time - or maybe she is Harriet's niece which wouldn't make her George's granddaughter. Leave her with John for now - he can't be found in 1871 so maybe that's why she stayed with George.
Is there a clue in her name?
"The story of Hagar is found in Genesis 16 and 21. The narrative states that Hagar was an Egyptian servant belonging to Sarah , who, being barren, gave her to Abraham for a wife, that by her, as a substitute, might bear him children. Because Sarah treated her poorly, Hagar fled from the dwelling of Abraham, but an angel of the Lord, finding her in the wilderness, commanded her to return. She obeyed this voice and submitted to Sarah, and was delivered of a son, whom she named Ishmael .
Fourteen years after this, Sarah gave birth to Isaac . When the child was weaned, Sarah observed Ishmael, who was then seventeen years of age, teasing Isaac; consequently, she urged Abraham to expel Hagar and her son. This proposal upset Abraham; but God commanded him to comply with Sarah's request. Rising early in the morning, therefore, Abraham took bread and a bottle of water and sent away Hagar and Ishmael.
Hagar intended to return to Egypt, but lost her way, and wandered in the desert of Beersheba . The water in her bottle failing, she left Ishmael under one of the trees in the wilderness to cry a small distance away from him. God ended up rescuing them by showing Hagar a well. She eventually settled in Desert of Paran ."
