Ann was born about 1839 possibly at Whithings Clough near Hawkshaw in Lancashire to Thomas (HM059) and Rachel (HM060).

The 1841 Census tells us that she was then 2 years old and living with her parents, William (GM076) her older brother and Nancy (GM078) her younger sister at Withings Clough.

There is no record of Anne in the 1851 Census by which time she should have been about 12 years old.
