In 1830, Ann married James Burns (Byrnes).
James Byrnes 23, born in the colony and Harriet Nicholson, 24, P. Charlotte, 7 years, bond, granted permission to marry 19 May 1830 by Rev. William Gate, Parramatta, provided employer of the female consents.
James was the son of David Burns (Convict, Friendship, 1800) and Ann Griffin (Convict, Experiment, 1804).
Although the couple were together for many years, I have been unable to trace children as yet.
