She was also known by Johanna and Honora, with the spelling of her name varying on the birth certificates of her children. I am thrilled to have found this post about her and wonder how her family came about the money she used to purchase land in Australia!

Hi Lauren, Hannah was my x3 grand mother also. My great grandmother was her daughter Catherine Lavinia Davis, b.1875 my grandmother Honora Veronica Davies b.1900. I don't have any information about the money but Hannah Sullivan & Henry Davis met while both were 'in service' with WILLIAM G. DUCAT family on the Mooneba Station of 16,000 acres.
Hannah procured 60 acres initially at Mooneba. If you would like to exchange family information let me know and I will give you my email. Kind regards, Helen
