Ann Sandall (c. 1778–1821)

Ann Sandall (c.1778-1821) was sentenced to 7 years transportation on 6 October 1800, at Kingston Upon Thames Quarter Sessions, Surrey, England. She arrived at Sydney aboard the Nile in December 1801.

Sandall (as Ann Sutherland) had a daughter, Elizabeth, with Thomas Mansfield in 1805. She then lived with William Tyrrell; they had four children. Sandall was badly in a lightning storm which struck their farm in in January 1810, leaving her badly burned and partly paralysed. She died as Ann Sandall on 25 June 1821 at Sydney; her age was given as 50.
