Ann Jones

ANN JONES was a convict transported per Wanstead (1814). On arrival in the colony, she was sent to the first Parramatta Female Factory, i.e. the Factory Above the Gaol, which was located at present-day Prince Alfred Square, Parramatta, including land now occupied by the Riverside Theatres.

There were two women on board named ANN JONES and also an ELIZABETH JONES. Upon being transferred to the Factory, this particular woman was recorded as ANNE ELIZABETH JONES, so it is unclear which woman on board the Wanstead she was or if she was the same ANN JONES per Wanstead (1814) who was in the Factory in 1817 and applied to marry JOSEPH PHELPS. Further research required.
