This Ann Peacock has same signature as the witness in the marriage of Charles Peacock to Emma (Saville) Millstead in 1856.  Charles was her uncle so it is possibly that Ann was a bridesmaid and acted as a witness.

Ann and her husband appear in the 1861 Census with their young son William.

See 1861 Census
