  • Notes 
    • Ann came from Idle, Yorkshire. Some of her relatives were Greaves. One was a 7' 2" famous giant, who was probably a cousin of Emma (Garlick) Worth, who was a bookmaker and lived in Pontefract. John Holmes Greaves, as he was known, was born in 1830 and died in 1893. He is reputed to have made the winning bowl in a cricket match solely because of the length of his body and the length of his arm. Some of the Greaves later emmigrated to Australia where they became sheep ranchers. Pat Whitehouse theorized that these were descendants of Mercy Pitt, one of Ann's sisters, who is supposed to have run away from boarding school and married someone who ended up a sheep rancher there. Another Greaves relation was supposed to have been the famous actress, Marie Studholme. She was so famous for her beauty around the turn of the century that when an artist was asked to draw a composite portrait of the most beautiful woman in the world, he used Marie's nose and mouth.

      Ann is supposed to have married beneath her station. After William died, Ann lived with her youngest daughter, Nellie, until her death.
