George Hanna (MP for East Antrim)
Born in Ballymena, County Antrim and educated at Gracehill Academy, Ballymena Academy and Trinity College, Dublin, Hanna was first admitted as a solicitor in 1901, being called to the Bar in 1920, taking silk in 1933. He was a member of Antrim County Council from 1908-21.
From 1919 until 1922 he was the independent Unionist Member of the UK Parliament for East Antrim, narrowly beating an official Unionist candidate in a by-election, but standing down at the 1922 general election.
From 1921-37, he served as an official Unionist in the Parliament of Northern Ireland, first representing County Antrim (1921–29) and then Larne until his appointment as a county court judge for County Tyrone in 1937. He was Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Home Affairs from 1925–37. He only served as a judge for six months, dying soon after his appointment.
