Research Notes

  • Research note 01: no record exists in Tasmania of her death, and if Ann disappeared in 1830 (as Richard's advert seems to indicate) then he would have been free to marry as a widower 7 years after that. Later research by others show she died in South Africa.
  • Research note 01: No records of children born to Ann and Richard have been found, and in the Launceston Advertiser dated 24th May 1830, Richard proclaimed that she had left him 'without provocation' and that he would not be responsible for any debts she incurred.9
