Ann arrived in the colony in January 1818 and in October the following year she married the widower John Herbert (First Fleet Convict, 1788, “Charlotte”).  John had been married to Deborah Ellam (First Fleet Convict, 1788, “Prince of Wales”).  The couple had 8 children and Deborah had died in June 1819.

Ann and John had one child, a son Henry. They are recorded in the 1828 census with a step-son as well.
1828 Census of New South Wales as recorded by Malcolm Sainty and Keith Johnson:
Page 188…
[Ref 1496] Herbert, John, 85, FS, Charlotte, 1796, 7, Dealer, Parramatta,
[Ref 1497] Herbert, Ann, 42, FS, Friendship, 1816, 7.
[Ref 1498] Herbert, James, 21, BC.
[Ref 1499] Herbert, Henry, 9, BC.
# Unsure about the age entry, clearly John was actually 68 years old.  Also the Charlotte was in the First Fleet 1788, so why 1796?
