Hannah was baptized in Cottingham, Yorkshire, England on 10/16/1631. Hahhah married first Edward Hazen. All children were with Edward. Hannah married second Lt. George Browne in Haverhill, MA. on 03/17/1683-84.

Edwards Hazen's wife, Hannah Grant, the mother of the American Hazens, derived from the parish of Cottingham in Yorkshire, England. It has long been known that she was a daughter of Thomas and Jame Grant of Rowley, Massachusetts Her ancestry has been traced by the author Tracy Elliott Hazen to all four grandparents, and to one great-grandfather.

    Although the maiden name of Mrs. Hannah Hazen does not appear in her marriage record, in accordance with the practice of the town clerk for that year, nevertheless her family history is known from an affidavit filed in the Essex County Probate Court in the settlement of the estate of her brother John Grant, who died at Rowley, 18 Mar. 1696/97; "I Sam Stickney Sr of Bradford do testifie and say That I came over from England to New England in the same ship wth Thomas Grant and Jame Grant his Wife, who brought over wth them Foure Children, by name John, Hannah, Frances and Ann, whome I was well acquainted with, and next or near neighbours unto in Rowley. And ye said John being deceased , I do affirm that the sisters of John Grant above named, now by marriage knowne by he names of Hannah Browne, Frances Keyes, and Ann Emerson, are ye same yt came over sth their Father and Missouri ther, and by them owned wth said John for their children." Sworn to 20 July 1698. [Essex Inst. Hist. Coll., 21:99.]
    Thomas and Jame Grant came from England in 1638. No record of their death is known, but as Widow Jane Grant she had a house lot on Bradford Street, Rowley, in 1643, and was taxed for two cow s in 1653. Of their four children, John died without issue; Frances married, at Newbury, Massachusetts, 2 Oct. 1653, Solomon Keyes of Newbury, soon of Chelmsford, Massachusetts; and Ann married, at Rowley , 4 Jan 1658, Robert Emerson of Haverhill.
    The town of Rowley was settled under the leadership of Rev. Ezekiel Rogers, who arrived in Salem, Massachusetts, in December, 1638, with about twenty families of his Yorkshire friends, "godly men, and most of them of good estate." He had labored, with great fidelity and eminent usefulness, for seventeen years in the parish of Rowley, in the southern part of Yorkshire, but at length was s uspended, "for refusing to read that accursed book that allowed sports on God's holy Sabbath, or Lord's day, and, by it and ot her signs of the times, driven, with many of his hearers, into New England." The company spent the winter in Salem, some of them prospecting at New Haven, where they were importuned to settle . About April, 1639, increased to about sixty families, they made a settlement between Ipswich and Newbury, which was incorporat ed 7 Sept. 1639 under the name of Rowley. "These people it appears, labored together and in common, for nearly five years from the time they commenced a settlement in this place; no man owning any land in severalty from the company, until after they had, probably, cleared up the lands on each side of the brook that runs through the central part of what is now the first parish in Rowley, and laid out the several streets as now improved. " [Gage, Hist. of Rowley, p. 122.] On 10 Jan. 1643, a survey of the town was made by Mr. Thomas Nelson, Mr. Edward Carleton, Humphrey Reyner, and Francis Parrot, and the location and size of each house lot (consisting usually of an acre and a half) recorded; in this register the name of Edward Hazen does not appear . The remaining undivided land was called commons, and it was agreed that every 1 1/2 acre house lot should have 1 1/2 "gates" or cow rights in the common pastures.
    In a later survey, undated, but probably made before 1647, is found the first mention of our common ancestor as a land owner, probably also the earliest record of the family in America:
