Hannah had a de facto relationship with Henry Taylor (First Fleet Convict, Friendship, 1788). This probably commenced around July 1791 and they were recorded together at Norfolk Island in 1794, with no children.

Henry died in 1806 and soon thereafter, Hannah is recorded as living with Archibald Kane (Convict, Marquis Cornwallis, 1796). They were childless.
In the 1822 Muster she is recorded as:
Hawkins, Hannah, free by servitude, Neptune, 7 years, wife of E. Kaine, Windsor.
Cain, Archibald, conditional pardon, Cornwallis, life, land holder, Windsor.
Archibald himself died in 1823.
