Edward Hanover


The name Edward Hanover appears on the Albany city assessment roll for 1788. At that time, his house and personal property in the second ward were valued modestly. At this point, that source stands alone following our most recent sweep of our community-based resources. In 1790, the Manhattan household of one Edward Hanover was enumerated on the census in the Montgomery Ward." A number of contemporary "Hanovers" were living living in North America. The name appears to be of Germanic origins and is connected to English nobility. However, we seek defining information on his origins and path to Albany.

We may seek to establish a possible connection to one Flora Hanover, whose household in the second ward was configured on the Albany census in 1800.

However, his name has not been encountered in the extant records of early Albany churches.

We recognize that presently we have not offered much of value on the life of this one-time Albany resident. Past diminishing returns and following our most recent sweep of Internet-based resources, we must move on for now from the life of the one-time Albany resident known as Edward Hanover.
