Ann and George's marriage was a short one, the entry in the Melbourne burial register explains why:
“George Tivey was kill’d by a fall in ye belfry, being taken up by ye rope as he was ringing. He languishe’d
about 30 hours after ye accident. N.B. He was in Liquor.”
Most of the movement's main supporters would have been women who were opposed to the domestic violence associated with alcohol abuse, and the large share of household income it could consume, which was especially burdensome to the low income working class. Anne remarried, she went on to have six children with her second husband John Calow.
As if to prove her commitment to the church, six days before they were married, Anne and John were baptised at their local baptist church.
