Ann Freckingham was born 1 Nov 1821 in Brownlee Street, Holborn, London, the daughter of Thomas, an oil man, & Arabella Freckingham and baptised on 10 Nov 1821 at St Andrew’s Holborn. Thomas Freckingham had married Arabella Hildyard in 1816 in Bigby, Lincoln. On the 1841 census at Bush Lane St Swithin, Ann aged 19 is a domestic servant living with her mother Arabella 40, stepfather William Penn 39 a printer, brother Henry 18, half sister Helen Eliza Penn 12. Ann committed suicide during the night of 28 Nov 1850 on board the “Isabella Hercus”. She had been “depressed and quiet” and “disappointed in love” according to witnesses. She had hoped to jump overboard but the deck was always populated even at night. She strangulated herself with string wound 3 times around her throat. She was buried at sea; the money found sewn into her clothes was said to have been returned to her relatives.
