Hi MIke,
thanks for this, sorry for my slow reply.
Yes I'm inclined to agree this looks like a different Hannah.
And yes nowadays Beckford, a new placename to me, is considered part of Worcestershire.

This 1868 Gazetteer entry shows it has no obvious links to the Forest, especially Coleford on the far side.

"BECKFORD, a parish in the hundred of Tibaldstone, in the county of Gloucester, 6 miles to the E. of Tewkesbury, its post town. It lies on the confines of Worcestershire, not far from Bredon Hill, and includes the hamlets of Bangrove, Didcote, and Grafton."
