History / Biographical
Ernest Hann was born in 1889 in Warblington, South Hampton, England, to Sarah and George Hann. Hann had a sister and brother, primarily raised by housekeepers as their mother passed away at age 36. The Hanns, alongside some extended family, immigrated to Canada in 1903, settling in Moosevim, Saskatchewan.
In 1909, the Hanns moved to Vernon, BC, where Ernest worked various jobs. His father, George, decided to move to Coquitlam, BC, to start an apple orchard. Ernest moved back to Vernon in 1911 and trained as a carpenter. Ernest, convinced by the La Croix family, moved to the Bulkley Valley on a Canadian Pacific Steamship to Prince Rupert. By 1913, Hann finally made it to Smithers.
On February 2, 1914, Hann married Addie Bannister in St. James Anglican Church and eventually had seven children: Wana (Abel), Winnie (Robertson), Pearl (Wall), Pat (McCammon), Roberta (Robinson), Bill, and Lloyd. Hann founded his company, Ernest Hann Carpenter and Builder, and was contracted by the town for various buildings, including the Civic Centre arena and the Muheim Elementary School in the 1950s. While a carpenter by trade, Hann also worked as a butcher, undertaker, rink caretaker, CN Railway carman, bridge builder, and manned the first light plant for W J O’Neill. He was also involved with several clubs and boards, including the School Board, Hospital Board, Curling Club, Rod and Gun Club, Fall Fair Board and Mason’s Lodge.
