Ann is possibly the daughter of Samuel Lamb and Harriott...?.

Ann is possibly the daugher of Richard Lamb and Mary Ann Lucas who married by Banns on 20/5/1814 at Lambeth, St. Mary, Middlesex. Witnesses J.B. Gawler and William Ware. Both Richard and Mary were literate. (Reg. of Mar. P85/MRY/Item 298; Reg. of Banns of Marr P83/MRY/Item 42 St. Mary Lambeth. Banns: 1/5, 8/5, 15/5/1814). If Ann Lamb's date of birth was approximated from her age on the voyage to Australia then this could lead to a date in 1816 or 1817, particularly if she slightly elevated her age to be eligible to travel.

Richard and Mary Ann Lamb had two children recorded: Elisha Richard Lamb b. 9/7/1815 and bap. 17/9/1815 and Ann Lamb b. 17/1/1817 bap. 20/5/1817 at Westminster St Margaret? (Richard was a brush maker).

Richard Lamb b. 1790-1833 (43 years) residing at 3 New Rochester Road. Death recorded at Westminster, St John (possibly Ann's father). This is the same year that Ann left for Australia and her father's death may have been the reason for her being chosen to travel.

There are two possibilities in Middlesex for Mary Ann Lucas:

Mary Ann Lucas is bap. in 1795 to Wiiliam and Susannah Lucas of Bedfort, Middlesex (Hounslow) . Age-wise this is a better match to Richard Lamb b. 1790. Another possibility is that she is one of twins: Ann Elizabeth and Mary Ann Lucas bap. 14/3/1778. to John and Ann Lucas at St. Sepulchre, Holburn, Middlesex.

Ann Lamb's first child was named Mary Ann (after her mother?); James (after her father-in-law?); She also has an Elisha and Richard as children.

In Middlesex, London, the earliest recorded Elisha William Lamb is bap. to William and Eliza 27/5/1759 St Luke, Finsbury, followed by Elisha Lamb bap. 19/9/1790 to John and Sarah at St. Botolph Bishopsgate, Middlesex. Elisha Richard (1793-1826) at Lambeth St Mary, Middlesex. Note that is is where Richard and Mary Ann married. This Elisha could be Richard Lamb's brother (Ann's uncle).


No known siblings.

Ann Campbell (formely Marks) Nee Lamb

It is believed that Ann Lamb, is an (native) Indian from Canada. She supposedly came back with a wealthy couple from England who had lived for a while in Canada. She may have been a half from white and indigenous parents.

Prior to leaving England, Ann was employed as a servant

Ann immigrated to the colony of New South Wales on Layton. The Layton left London on 15 August 1833, arriving in Port Jackson (Sydney) on 17 Dec 1833. Ann was a bounty passenger and a part of a program to bring out women to marry the men in the new colony. Reports of the voyage of the ship Layton , which was the first of it's kind, indicate that it carried 232 female emigrants. The reports suggest that these women were mostly "Ladys of the Streets of London" and that they had been paid £5 for their passage to Australia. The behaviour of some of these women with the crew of the ship brought about complaints from the other women.On arriving in Sydney, Ann was employed by Mr Hayward of Castlereagh Street, Sydney. She was earning £7/0/0.

It seems that by Jul 1834 Ann and William had entered into a defacto relationship. He had probably been in Sydney on one of his journeys there for delivering goods and obtaining supplies. Ann moved to Mulgowrie, but the two were not wed until 1838. During this time it is suggested that Ann lived at Fish River and William lived a Mulgowrie.

Ann and William had a daughter Mary Ann during 1835 in Bigga

Ann and William had a son James during 1836 in Binda

After 1836 William Hassall, a relative of their employer visited Mulgowrie. He later wrote in his book The morning after our arrival in Mulgowrie we took a ride out to inspect the run and some of the cattle, getting back at dinner time. The dinner I shall never forget. I suppose is was in honor of "The Boss's" son. My cousin [Tom Hassall], Marks, and I, sat at the table while Mrs. Marks attended to us. First appeared a splendid roast turkey, to which we did ample justice. With this course over Mrs. Marks was called in, cleared the table, and then came a magnificent roast beef. Well, we had to eat a share of this also. Again Mrs. Marks was called in, removed all, and placed a huge plum pudding on the table, enough for a dozen people. Could boys ever refuse plum-pudding? The fourth course was apple-pie but now we had to apologise and postpone the pie until tea-time. My cousin and myself lolled on the grass for the rest of the day, wishing we had known beforehand the quality and quantity of the dinner we had to face.

Ann and Francis had a son John Francis during 1865 in Bigga


Ann died in 16 Jun 1894 after suffering a long illness at Wheeo. She was 78. She was burried on 19 June, 1894 at the Church of England Cemetery, Binda.

It is interesting that William Marks, her first husband, who died in the buried at Goulburn Cemetary. The theory goes that William had to be examined, autopsy, in Goulburn, and in the warmer months, no refrigeration, the need to bury him before decay set-in necessitated burial locally in Goulburn.

One of the oldest residents in the whole of the surrounding districts, in the person of Mrs Campbell, died on Satuday last at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. Josiah Eldridge, Lost River, at a very advanced age, being nearly eighty years old. She was the wife of the late Mr. William Marks, of Markdale, so called after his name, who was killed at Binda over thirty years ago by being thrown against a tree. A large family of sons and daughters were born to them, among them being Messrs. Richard, Elisha, and Alfred Marks, of Binda and Bigga, and Mrs. Picker, wife of Mr. William Picker, Bigga, and Mrs. Eldridge, wife of Josiah Eldridge, Lost River, all of whom are well-known throughout the district.
