    Notes 
    • In an 1859 listing of superannuated teachers in Canada West, Hugh is shown as receiving annual pension of $7.25. He commenced teaching in Ireland in 1803, taught there for 16 years, emigrated to Montreal and taught in Lower Canada for 16 years, then taught a further 18 years in Upper Canada.

      Upon emigrating to Canada, he was first in Montreal. Then he moved to the Ste. Marie de Monnoir area (now Marieville, Quebec) where he built and operated a school. He was also in the militia of Bedford Township and was promoted to Captain on March 5, 1824.

      In A.H.D. Ross' book, Ottawa, Past and Present, Hugh O'Hagan is mentioned. "In 1833 Hugh O'Hagan (later known as Hugh Hagan) came here from St. Mary's, Ontario [sic], and opened a school close to the corner of Sussex and Murray Streets. Lett says he was 'A man with learning, grace and mildness pictured in his face'". In the same book, O'Hagan is listed as one of 12 teachers employed in 1847 by the Common School Trustees of Bytown.

      In "The Mile of History" (National Capital Commission 1981), Lucien Brault states that Hugh Hagan operated a school on the east side of Sussex Street between Clarence and Murray Streets. "On the Leblanc and Lemay store site, Hugh Hagan in 1837 had opened an English and Commercial Academy in a little wooden house formerly occupied by Michel Brosseau, a saddler. Subjects taught were reading, elocution, writing, English grammer, arithmetic, history, geography and bookkeeping."

      In 1861, he was living as a "gentleman" with his wife Ann in Templeton Township.
