The Royal New Zealand Fencible Corps were retired soldiers from the British Isles who enlisted to serve in the military reserve as an unofficial 'defence force' to protect the early settlers of Auckland, New Zealand.

They settled in four Fencible settlements which later became Onehunga, Otahuhu, Panmure and Howick.

Ann, arrived 16 May 1848

The Ann was captained by C S Walker, with Lieutenant John Annesley Hickson and surgeon Dr Bacot. She carried 74 Fencibles, 70 women, and 153 children.
