Notes for William Hanney JR.:

( from conversation and notes from Mary Hanney in 1958)
William Hanney left England in 1861 on his way to California. He stopped in New York for a visit with his sister, Ann (Hanney) Woodley, where he met, and courted Sarah Warren. He continued to San Francisco alone by way of Cape Horn, and finally on to Grand Island, where he took up land adjacent to his brother, James, in what is now Knight's Landing, California. Sarah followed two years later and they were married in Sacramento in 1863. Wiliam built a substantial house for Sarah. It is the oldest house in Knight's Landing and is still in use.

**( from conversation and notes from Mary Hanney LaDue in 1958)
Samuel and Mary Warburton of Stockport, Cheshire, England were Sarah's aunt and uncle.
Sarah was eight years old in 1852 when the family, consisting of Sarah, her mother, father grandmother and grandfather, immigrated from England to New York. They travelled on a ship owned by the Graham Shipping Company, cousins of Sarah. Sarah's grandfather died during the crossing and was buried at sea.
Sarah's mother (Sarah Barrett) was pregnant before leaving England, and Sarah's sister, Mary, was born in New York. Sarah's mother died soon after Mary's birth and the two girls were raised by by their aunt, Hannah Barrett Chesworth.
At some time in New York, Sarah met Ann (Hanney) Woodley. In 1861, Ann's brother, William stopped in New York on his way to join his brother James in California. He met, and courted Sarah Warren before continuing West. The Woodleys, and Sarah, made their way to California in 1863 by way of Nicaragua. They gathered in Sacramento where Sarah and William Hanney were married by Rev. Heill in Grace Epsicopal Church on December 28.
