About the Booklet

The mission of In Search of Ann Walker is to bring Ann out of the shadows. During our research into Ann, we have uncovered much information about her, and we wanted somewhere for people to read a summary of this research, along with the references for where we found our information. To find out more about Ann Walker’s life, please download our free 37 page PDF below (21.2Mb), full of information about her life before, during, and after her relationship with Anne Lister. Covering:

  • Family
  • Early Life
  • Ann’s Activities
  • Loss
  • Health
  • Ann and Anne
  • Ann’s Diary
  • Last Travels
  • Post 1840

This booklet will be regularly updated as we find out new information, so check back often to ensure you have the latest copy.
