Ann Allam was baptised in the parish of Great Hale, Lincolnshire on 26th September 1788, the daughter of a carpenter named John Allam and his wife Mary. Ann was the couple's only child. In 1804, when Ann was fifteen years old, her mother Mary died.

The following year Ann married a Luke Ward, a carpenter who was about ten years older than her. They appear to have had twelve children together, although only one appears to have been baptised as a baby. Most of the children were not baptised until after Luke's death, suggesting non-conformist leanings. Some of the children are only known from Ann's father's will, written in 1835. Ann's father died in 1841, leaving her and Luke several properties in Great Hale, including a windmill, for their lifetimes, after which the estate was to be divided between Ann and Luke's children. The 1841 census finds Ann and Luke and some of their children living on South Street in Great Hale.

Luke died in 1844, aged 65. In 1851 Ann was still living at South Street with her son Luke and some of her grandchildren. She was described as an annuitant, presumably living off the income received from her late father's estate in accordance with his will. Ann died on 16th February 1857, aged 68. She was buried at the same church in which she had been both baptised and married.
