In addition the the Hanns shown on the map, there are a number who I have not yet been able to positively identify.  These are not shown as 'various Hanns', as these are families whose details I know from 1881, but whose initial origins are uncertain.

Ancestry have a service which shows distribution of surnames on the 1891 census.  Click on the link for HANN distribution in 1891. If you would like to check another name use this link.
