    After the death of her husband, Thomas, in 1857, who for some years had run the Plough Inn, Ann lived nearby (in Church Street) together with a Lodger, Mary Ann Witt, aged 70 in 1861, who was a Dressmaker, born in Maidstone, Kent. She also had a Lodger, Shadrach Jacob,aged 72 in 1861, her brother. He was also born in Chesterton, like Ann. He was a retired Grocer.

     

    (Mary Ann Witt had earlier been a lodger in the same house as Ann's son Richard in London. She was a widow in 1851 with two sons (?), William (22) a tailor and Charles (18) a decorator.)

     

    There was dispute between the eldest son, Thomas, and the remainder of the family over some land that the father had left to be distributed between his children, apart from Thomas, who apparently had some special arrangement (unknown). Although Thomas was, by 1861, a married man of about 40 with 9 children and working as a carpenter, the dispute boiled over and he burst into his mother's house and killed her with hammer blows and then made good his escape. he was found the next day hanged from a tree in the orchard that had been at the centre of the family dispute.
