From the records it is unclear whether Ann Hannaway travelled to NSW on the Lady Juliana or the Neptune.  Later musters (Archives Office of Tasmania) show her ship as the Neptune.

There is an Ann Hannaway listed on the Neptune 1789 and also on the Lady Juliana. Both tried Middlesex Court, 14 yr sentence.  Same person? There appears to be only one Ann tried at court around this time.

Ann Hannaway arrived with 3 children - Ann married Robert Nash (Albermarle 1791).  They were sent to Norfolk Island and then to VDL per ‘City of Edinburgh’ on 3/9/1808.

I found a marriage on 18/11/1779 at Hayes, Middlesex, for Ann Hannaway to Daniel Seymour, a widower.  These may have been his children, or she was married to Robert Nash in England before they were transported. 

Ann and Robert Nash had 4 daughters born at Norfolk Island, and also a son James Nash born 1806 who died in 1850 Tasmania. James married Sarah Kane.

Robert Nash was a miller and he died in VDL 19/3/1819.

Ann died 12/12/1829 at Sorell, Tasmania.
