A second fleet of six ships left England - Guardian, Justinian, Lady Juliana, Surprize, Neptune, Scarborough. The Guardian struck ice, and was unable to complete the voyage. She was stocked with provisions. Only 48 people died in the first group of ships, but this time 278 died during the voyage. This time transporting the convicts was in the hands of private contractors.

The Lady Juliana arrived 6/6/1790.  Thomas Lucas, Ann’s son was born 29/12/1791 in Sydney and died 1846.

There is no mention of any children born to Ann in England.

Richard 20/12/1794-1862 - John 25/6/1797-1813 and Nathaniel 19/10/1799-1875 were all born at Norfolk Island and before Ann and Thomas married on 17/8/1801.
This may have meant that Ann was married in England and had to wait for 7 years before she could marry, but found no mention of her life before transportation.
