In the colony, Ann formed a liaison with Edward Whitton (First Fleet Convict, Scarborough, 1788).
The couple had at least three children:-
Jane (1794-1794); Mary Ann (1790-1865) and William (1799 - ??).  The daughter Mary Ann, later married John Ecclestone (Convict, Lord Sidmouth, 1819).

Ann can be located on the 1802 Muster [Ref AG 287] with 30 acres of land, 16 acres wheat, 10 acres maize, off stores and with 2 children (Mary Ann and William). Her partner, Edward, who had been granted the land died in 1802.

In 1803 Ann married John Norman (Convict, Royal Admiral, 1792).  The couple did not have any children. Ann herself died around 1806 and does not appear in the 1806 muster. John Norman does [Ref A3271 and also B0201] with 30 acres: 14 wheat, 8 maize, 3 barley and 20 roods potatoes. ## The farm is recorded as held by right of his wife. The two children are recorded again in 1814 with their step-father.

The ‘Queen’ was carrying the first Irish convicts sent directly from Ireland. The youngest was David Fay of Dublin, aged 11 years and the oldest was Patrick Fitzgerald, aged 64. The youngest female convict was Mary Whelan aged 18 years, and the oldest, Margaret Stephenson was 50. The Queen also carried four children of the female convicts and one free woman, Mrs Ann Jamison wife of Sergeant John Jamison of the New South Wales Corps.

Ann had a defacto relationshiop with convict Edward Whitton (‘Scarborough’ 1788), that produed 3 children, 1 of which died at birth. After Edward died in 1802, she married convict John Norman (‘Royal Admiral’ 1792)at St Phillips Church of England Sydney on 28th August 1803.

Ann died aged 45 years in 1806 at Windsor.
It is believed that she was buried in the Green Hills burial Ground, South Creek, Bridge St, in Windsor NSW, where Edward is buried
