Hannah Tolly is the daughter of Grace and Enoch Tolly, and the sister of Naomi Tolly. Hannah moved to Hotten with her boyfriend and became a trainee hairdresser. One day in February 1981, Hannah decided she would not see her family on the upcoming Sunday as she normally did, so Grace went to try change her mind. Grace failed and returned to Beckindale dreading Enoch's reaction but was horrified to learn that Naomi had discovered Enoch's dead body after a tractor accident. Grace thought the incident would bring Hannah home but Hannah refused, stating that she now had a life in Hotten. However, she did visit her mother and help out a little.
