Thousands of Irish families
left for North American shores in the 19th century. These people were searching for a life unencumbered with poverty, hunger, and racial discrimination. Many arrived to eventually find such conditions, but many others simply did not arrive: victims of the diseased, overcrowded ships in which they traveled to the New World. Those who lived to see North American shores were instrumental in the development of the growing nations of Canada and the United States. A thorough examination of passenger and immigration lists has disclosed evidence of many early immigrants of the name Hanon: Bridget, James, and John Hannen who landed in Canada in 1847; Bridget Hannon landed in Boston Massachusetts in 1849; Charles, James, John, Michael, Thomas and William Hannon, who all settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1765 and 1856.
