Family: John CARLIER
Ann Eliza CARLIER (nee BURNETT) was a school teacher and might have run her own school from various residences (in between having her own children). Her teaching record (see Brian Condon's database of Teachers) indicates that the school was located at Rundle Street, Adelaide (1852-1853), Pirie Street (early 1854), Hindmarsh Square (late 1854-early 1855), Stepney (late 1855-early 1857), Norwood in late 1857 and finally in Kent Town from 1858 to 1862. Although the information in them sometimes needs to be treated with caution, various SA Directories of the period suggest that Ann Carlier's school might have been running at least to 1872.
The following obituary confirms this:
DEATH OF MRS. A. E. CARLIER - The death is announced, from senile decay, on August 14, of Mrs. Annie E. Carlier at the age of 77 years. The deceased lady, who with her husband and children arrived in the colony by the barque Anna Maria in 1850, was for many years a well-known and highly-respected school mistress, and in that capacity resided for different periods in Adelaide, Norwood and Kent Town. She had a large circle of friends, and her old scholars were numbered by hundreds. She is survived by three sons and three daughters.
