Hannan brickwall

Hi everyone, I am hoping someone may be able to help as I'm struggling with tracing my 3rd GGF, Hugh Hannan. All I know about him is that he was married to Mary Jago and they had 2 children - Margaret born 1831 and George born 1833 in Stoke Damerel/Devonport England. My guess is that he was a Seaman, Merchant or Royal Navy, as were many subsequent ancestors, including son George. George and Margaret appear on the 1841 Census living in St Cuthberts District Edinburgh with, I assume, their Grandmother Margaret Hannan, who may have been married to a brother of Hugh. Have found nothing on Hugh or Mary in any year census Scotland, England or Ireland.

Hugh and Mary Jago (some researchers have her as Page but def. Jago) are named on George's 1858 marriage Certificate although doesn't state whether alive at that time. I think Hugh died around 1860 but nothing found on Mary. Hope someone has lues for me. Thanks in anticipation. Lizzie.

My tree is on Ancestry, My Heritage and Gentree.
