Ann Cotterell was briefly married to James Steel in 1811, but became the common law wife of William Davis (Anne 1810) by about 1815. Ann had five children - William Davis 1816, Joseph Davis 1818, Elizabeth Davis 1821, James Cook 1823, and John Cook 1825.

This Ann Cotterall/Cotterell was likely not briefly married to James Steele, the convict musters list her as free by servitude, 7 years, and wife of W Davis, Sydney. If she had been married to James Steel, would she not be thereafter listed as Ann Steel?
