Hannah Wells1,2

F, #8324, b. 15 July 1744, d. 22 January 1829
  • Reference: W004 ID010
  • Birth*: 15 July 1744; Essex Co., Massachusetts, USA3
  • Burial*: 22 January 1829; Wenham Cemetery, Wenham, Essex Co., Massachusetts, USA; Hannah (Wells) Friend was the daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Hart) Wells. The burial place of her parents are unknown. Hannah was baptized in Ipswich, MA on July 15, 1744. She married John Friend, Jr. of Wenham (marriage intent announced at Wenham on Dec. 11, 1766.) She died his widow, aged 84 years. (sources: gravestone inscription & Vital Records of Wenham, MA to the end of the year 1849)

    Notes:

    1-Hannah was listed as Mrs. Hannah Wells (marriage intent announced at Wenham on Dec. 11, 1766). However, she was listed as Hannah Wells (married at Ipswich Jan 1, 1767).

    2-Historians have long known that Mrs. indicated social status. Mrs. was the feminine equivalent of Mr. and did not denote marital status. Mrs., and later, Miss were both restricted to those of higher social standing. Until the 19th century, most women did not have any prefix before their name. Women on the bottom rungs of the social scale were addressed simply by their names. Single women over the age of 18 were often referred to as Mrs. as a title of respectability.
