Ann Amelia Reeve (23 June 1834-1906) was born in Surrey in 1834 and died in Surrey in 1906 aged seventy-two.
Ann Amelia Reeve was born on 23 June 1834 and was christened on Christmas Day at Saint Peter, Walworth, Surrey. Her parents were David (c.1797-1866) and Elizabeth (c.1803) Reeve. Her siblings were William David (1831), Emily (1837), David (c.1840), Henry (c.1845) and Melnes (c.1847). In 1861 a David Reeve (c.1857) was living with the family, he may be a grandson of David and Elizabeth.
In 1856 in Newington, Surrey Ann Amelia Reeve married Isaac Spiller. They had the following children:
- David Reeve Spiller (1856-1925), musician
- Annie Reeve Spiller (1857-1937)
- Emily Reeve Spiller (1859), actress
It appears that by 1881 Isaac and Ann had split up because they were living seperatley. Isaac also lied, because he said he was widowed. Ann was married, but head of the household. She was living at 6 Pelham Street, London and was working as a lodging house keeper. At the time there was one boarder with her, a young milliner named Ada Lewis.
In 1901 Ann was working as a dressmaker and living near her daughter Emily, an actress married to Arthur Williams (1844-1915), a comedian.
Ann outlived her husband by one year, and died in 1906 in Newington aged seventy-two.
