Anne Webb was baptised on 19th February 1860 at Knutsford in Cheshire, daughter of Martha Webb, formerly Jackson, and her husband George Webb, a sawyer. The family lived in the Cross Town area of Knutsford, appearing there in the 1861, 1871 and 1881 censuses. Anne's mother had died by the time of the 1881 census, by which time Anne was working as a domestic servant.

In the mid-1880s, Anne began a relationship with a surgeon and physician called Peter Vincent Timothy. He was about 29 years her senior. They were unable to marry, as Peter was married, having had ten children with his wife Elizabeth Hutchings. Peter had left Elizabeth some years before setting up home with Anne, having lived with a woman called Mary Cooke in the early 1880s, having a son with her in 1881. Mary had died in 1884.

Anne and Peter went on to have seven children together between 1886 and 1896. They moved around the country frequently, often for significant distances. Their first son, Ernest Augustus, was born in Liverpool in 1886. They then had a daughter, Maud Eveline, in 1888 at St Helens in Lancashire. They then moved to nearby Wigan, where they had a son, Percy Lionel, in 1890. They were still in Wigan the following year, appearing in the census at 95 Wallgate and having a daughter, Gertrude Cordelia, there a few months later.

By 1893 they had left Lancashire and moved about 200 miles south-east to Essex, having a daughter, May Ethel, in West Ham in 1893, then a son, Sydney Herbert, in the Romford area in 1895. By 1896 they had returned to Lancashire, having their youngest daughter, Florence, in Manchester.

By 1900 the family had moved again to Longton in the Potteries area of Staffordshire, where their son Sydney died, aged five. The following year's census finds Anne, Peter and their children living at 50 Uttoxeter Road in Longton. By 1903 they had left Longton and moved to Great Yarmouth on the Norfolk coast, where they finally settled.

Peter's wife Elizabeth died in 1904. A few months later, on St Valentine's Day, 14th February 1905, Anne and Peter finally married, at St Bride's Church in the City of London. They returned to Great Yarmouth after their marriage, living there for the rest of their lives. Anne's eldest daughter, Maud, died in 1911, aged 23. The 1911 census taken shortly afterwards finds Anne, Peter and their five surviving children living at 33 South Quay in Great Yarmouth.

Anne's eldest son married in 1915 and her first known grandchildren were twins born in 1916. Anne had four grandchildren born in her lifetime.

Anne died on 3rd March 1919 at home at 33 South Quay, aged 59. Peter only survived her by a few weeks; he died the following month. Both were buried at the Great Yarmouth Cemetery at Caister-on-Sea.
