On arrival in the colony, Ann was transferred to Norfolk Island. Here she had a liaison with John Scott who had been a seaman on ‘Neptune’ but then transferred to ‘Supply’. The daughter, Elizabeth Ann, died after only a couple of months. John left Norfolk at about the same time, aboard the ‘Asia’ bound for China.
Ann then had a relationship with Kennedy Murray (Convict, Pitt, 1792), the couple did not marry but they did have 2 children, Kennedy White Murray (1799) and Elizabeth Murray (1802).
Ann then was in a relationship with Richard Sides (Convict, Ganges, 1797), from about 1804.
In 1813, Ann and Richard moved to Tasmania with their small family of 3 children and subsequently they married in 1814 at Launceston.

By coincidence on the 14th March 1814, Ann married Richard Sydes on the same day as when her ex-partner, Kennedy Murray married Ann Parker in Sydney.
