Ann Guy (?–?)

No records, other than a marriage record, have been for Ann Yarnell. It is speculated that she was a convict and may have arrived on the Mary Ann in 1791 as the number of female prisoners named in various lists does not tally with the number actually transported. There appears to be an additional six to seven women not named on any lists.

Ann Yarnell married Robert Guy at Parramatta on 27 June 1792. There are no further records for her. It seems likely that she died within a few years of her marriage with no burial entry surviving - which was fairly common at the time.
