Becket, Ann (1770–?)

Ann Calcutt was found guilty on 13 August 1789 at the Stafford Assizes of stealing a number of household and personal items. Sentenced to 7 years transportation she arrived at Sydney aboard the Neptune in June 1790 as part of the Second Fleet. She married James Becket on 31 January 1791. In 1814 she was recorded as a widow, living in Parramatta on the family farm with one child 'off stores'. No further records have been found for her.
