The family names of Hanna was spelled in ancient time "De Hannethe" and also "a Hanney" until about the year 1600. All bearing the name are undoubtedly to be traces to that clan of Lowland Scots whose chief has his reisdence at the Sorbie Castle. Many Scots moved to northern Ireland (Ulster) during the 18th Century because of the Rebellion against Queen Elizabeth of England. Many left for the shores of America from there. The surname "Hannah is also spelled "Hanna" with many relatives living in America. Both have been used in the same family.
