See lengthy article about this watch theft in the Lancaster Gazette 30 April 1859. Ann Maudsley isn't with the Mackreth family in the 1851 or 1861 census. So you may need to track her using other records.

1861 census:
Civil Parish: Halton
Registration district: Lancaster
Household schedule number: 90
Piece: 3156
Folio: 24
Page Number: 4
