Hannah was a servant to William Johnson, the local schoolmaster.  She became pregnant and accused Johnson.  He took her to court claiming it wasn’t his child.  The court found in his favour, hence her conviction for perjury.  She arrived in 1808 with her young son, William.  On May 27, 1810 she married Charles Daley at St.Matthews to whom she had 6 children and lived her remaining life at Windsor

Inquest at Windsor. On Saturday, the 7th Instant, an inquest was held at Windsor on the body of Mrs. Susannah DALEY, an old resident. On Thursday evening a neighbour saw an unusual light in the home of the deceased, and running towards her met her at the door enveloped in flame. Her face, head and the upper part of her body were dreadfully burnt, so much so that she could give no account of the accident; she was very old and feeble. The jury found a verdict that she died from the effects of a burn accidentally received. S.M. Herald October 14. [14/10/1854]
