Ann Ward (c.1766-1804)

Ann Ward is one of St John’s First Fleeters  buried in St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta. Ward was convicted at the Old Bailey and came to the colony as a convict on the First Fleet transport ship Lady Penrhyn (1788). Ward died, aged 38, at Eastern Farms on 22 June 1804 and was buried the following day 23 June 1804 as “Ann Terrell.” (Her name does not actually appear in the St. John’s parish register). Her grave is unmarked; the exact location of her grave in the cemetery is, therefore, unknown.
