She was held in the Stafford County Gaol until 25 October 1789 when she was sent to Woolwich, London, along with four other convict women, for embarkation on the Neptune transport.

At Parramatta on 30 January 1791, six months after her arrival in the colony Calcut married James Becket (tried Shrewsbury, qv), both signing the register with an X. Their first child, Samuel was born in October but died aged 16 months. In 1802 Becket was recorded holding a purchased farm at Concord, although the family appear to have mostly lived in or near Parramatta. In 1806 they were living on a farm outside Parramatta with three sons and two daughters. James Becket died about 1808 and in 1814 Ann was described as a widow of the Parramatta district. She has not been traced in later colonial records.

She was a convict aboard The Ship Neptune which sailed from England in January 1790 and arrived in Port Jackson in June 1790.
