From:
‘THE UNFORTUNATES’
PROSTITUTES TRANSPORTED TO
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND 1822–1843
Christine Jessie Leppard BA (Hons)


The theft of seven five pound notes from a young man brought Ann Morby to Van
Diemen's Land in 1836.141 She was a thirty year old farm servant who could wash, iron,
milk and make butter. But as a deserted wife, she had supported herself and her child
through prostitution. Ann had spent the past eight years on the town and explained to
the clerk in Hobart Town that her husband Edward had ‘run away from me 8 years ago’.
In February 1844 after four applications to marry, from three different prospective
husbands, she married Henry Owens.142
