Anna married John CULPIN (a miller) at Duddington St Mary (Northamptonshire) on 6 OCtober 1823. They lived in Kings Cliffe Northhamptonshire. From Arnold's Memoirs- (bottom of page 34) "... she married an excellent man John Culpin by whom she had one son and 3 daughters, 2 of whom lived with us for years".

In the 1841 Census Anna and John were living at Park St, Kings Cliffe, with daughters Anna (13), Mary (9), and son John (6). Daughter Sarah was living with her uncle Arnold Goodliffe at Bridlesmith Gate, Nottingham, just as Arnold had noted in his memoirs.

In 1851 Ann and daughter Anna were in Park St, Kings Cliffe. Ann was a widow, as John had died in 1847 (Dec quarter, Oundle 15/207). (His headstone was at the old baptist Chapel in Barrowden but was too worn to be read.) Daughter Sarah was a servant for Elizabeth Bretland at 17 Carlton St, Nottingham.
