Ann Dring was found guilty in 1788 at Nottingham of stealing wearing apparel. Sentenced to 7 years transportation, she arrived in Sydney in June 1790 aboard the Lady Juliana as part of the Second Fleet.

Dring married Joseph Bishop at St Philips Church of England, Sydney, on 13 November 1790. In 1800 the couple were recorded as childless and were supported from public stores on their 50 acre block at The Ponds. Ann was buried on 5 November 1804. Her death was registered at St Philips Church.
