The only etymological reference I was able to find for Hannabus is at http://www.surnamedb.com/Surname/Hannabus. I'm not convinced it's correct but I have nothing better to offer. For more variants of Hunnable, etc. and a more plausible origin, see tinyurl.com/ar235r3

-bus could be for -bush, indicating a lost or minor place name.

I think Hannabus is from a personal name, perhaps from the name Hannibal, or from the name Hanna. Hannabus looks like a Latin form of a personal name, perhaps a Latin form of Hanna or Hannibal. A very rare English surname.
