Partridge, Ann Maria (1789–?)

Anna Maria Partridge, the daughter of convict Sarah Partridge and naval officer Henry Ball, was baptised at Sydney on 22 August 1789. It is believed that Ball took Sarah and his daughter with him when he returned to England in November 1791; Sarah's sentence had expired by then.

No mention of Sarah or her daughter was made in Ball's will but Ball's sister Mary made 'my niece "Ann Maria"' her heir in 1820.
