Ann Parker was born in July 1785 at Whitechapel, London.2 She was baptized at St. Andrew Holborn on Sunday, 24 July 1785 at London.2 Ann Parker was transported to Sydney on the 'HMS Glatton' arriving circa 1800.3

Ann Parker married Kennedy Murray, son of John Murray and Elizabeth Calder, at St. Philips on Monday, 14 March 1814 at Sydney, New South Wales. They were 28 and 42 respectively. This was a wattle and daub church, burned down in 1798.4,5

In 1820, Ann was admitted to the Castle Hill lunatic asylum, in Sydney.6

Kennedy and Ann Four children of Kennedy and Ann were admitted to an Cabramatta Boys Orphanage:
Resolved that the four children of Murray aged from 3 to 10 years whose mother died insane at Castle Hill, and whose father is stated to be now insane be admitted into the school

However, it is likely that Ann wasn't dead and that there is no record that Kennedy was ever admitted to the asylum.6,7

Ann may have died on 4 November 1862 at Parramatta Lunatic Asylum, in Parramatta, New South Wales, at age 77 Ann spent 42 years and 3 days in a psychiatric hospital.8,2,9

Ann may have died in 1874 at the Sydney suburb of Parramatta.10
