There were four Ann(e) Richards born in Camborne in the 1770s:
- 8 Apr 1772, daughter of John Richards of Illogan [and Catherine his wife]. This Ann was buried in Camborne on 22 Dec 1780.
- 4 May 1777, daughter of John Richards and Ann Bennetts. This Ann Richards daughter of John who was buried on 29 November in Camborne in the same year, leaving:
- 22 Mar 1778, daughter of Thomas Richards and Mary Harris, and
- 18 Apr 1778, daughter of Thomas Richard and Elizabeth Arthur
One of the witnesses to the marriage of Anne Richards and Francis Vivian was William Richards. Since no William Richards had a daughter Elizabeth in Camborne during this time period, he was most likely a brother; both Elizabeth daughter of Thomas and Mary, and Elizabeth daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth, had older brothers named William.
As far as naming patterns go, the eldest son of Francis Vivian and Ann Richards was called Francis, after his paternal grandfather; their second son was called Thomas Richards Vivian who died young. Francis and Ann's eldest daughter was called Mary. Another daughter was called Joanna, and Ann Richards daughter of Thomas and Mary had a sister Joanna. However, Ann's daughter Joanna may just as easily have been named after Joanna's paternal grandmother. Pending evidence to the contrary, Anne is shown in this tree as daughter of Thomas Richards and Mary Harris.
In 1841 Ann Vivian, aged about 60 years, was staying with Thomas and Mary Moyle (née Vivian) and their family in College St., Camborne.
In 1851 Ann Vivian (75) of Camborne, widow, was visiting with [her daughter] Mary Moyle and her family in College St., Camborne.
In 1861 Ann Vivian (84) of Camborne, widow, was boarding with charwoman and widow Sarah Vial (57) of Gulval in Trevenen Terrace Camborne Cornwall.
