There are several sources which have clearly mixed up the two convict women…
Ann Gorman, Marquis Cornwallis, 1796 (ex Dublin, Ireland).
Ann Germaine, Mary Ann, 1791, (ex Norfolk, England).

Ann had a probably defacto, long term, relationship with Joseph Flood (Convict, Boddingtons, 1793).  It would appear that they were together as early as 1796.
They had 6 children 5 boys and 1 girl: John 1797, Joseph 1799, Thomas 1802, Edward 1805, James 1807 and Eleanor 1809.

Baxter, Carol; Musters of New South Wales and Norfolk Island: 1805-1806
[Ref A1786] Ann Gorman, Marquis Cornwallis, with Joseph Flood.
[Ref C0496] Ann Gorman, Marquis Cornwallis, 3 (natural) children. (This would probably be John, Joseph and Thomas).

Baxter, Carol; General Musters of New South Wales, Norfolk Island and Van Diemens Land: 1811.
[Ref 2323] Ann Gorman, Marquis Cornwallis, Tried April 1793, Dublin, 7 years (PRO n4701)

#Note 1 Joseph has died in 1808 so is not recorded in 1811. Ann died in 1814 so is not recorded there.
# Note 2 Ann Germaine, however, is recorded both in 1811 [Ref 2239] and 1814 [Ref 1613].
