Anne Fletcher was born in the parish of Kilfinan, on the eastern shore of Loch Fyne, in 1798. In 1823 or 1824, she gave birth to her daughter Jean, whose natural father was George McFarlane, the 3rd Laird of Auchrossan. Auchrossan was (and still is) an estate just south of Kilfinan. George died in 1827 and Anne adopted his name, though it does not seem that they ever legally married. Anne seems to have also used the name Agnes, which appeared on her daughter's death certificate, and also as the name of her eldest grand-daughter. (A family's eldest daughter was almost always named after her paternal grandmother.)
