Ann Covell

Ann Covell (later Ann Boulter) was the oldest of the ten children of William Covell and his wife Mary Ayers of Witchford, Cambridgeshire, England.

Ann married labourer William Boulter from the neighbouring village of Wentworth, and together they settled there and became parents to at least four children.

In 1841, Ann and William were living at Mount Pleasant in Wentworth with two of their sons - Thomas and Robert. However, by the time of the 1851 census, Ann has become a widow, and is noted as living in Grunty Fen Lane with her son Robert.

Ann remains with her son and is seen aged 75 on the 1861 census alongside Robert's wife and three young children.

Ann out-lived William by 21 years, and whilst she was buried in Wilburton, William was not.

After Ann's death, Robert named one of his daughters after her.
