One of the more successful botanical artists of her gender and time. She was born on December 5th, 1806 in Stroud,Kent, the second of three daughters of Robert Pratt, a grocer, and Sara Bundock. A frail child, Anne devoted much of her time to studying instead of playing childhood games. Consequently, she became quite learned in literary matters. She was educated at Eastgate House, near the Rochester Museum. Because she seemed such a lonely child, a Scottish friend of the family, Dr. Dodds, introduced her to botany. She was instantly enthralled with the subject. Her older sister encouraged Anne's interest by collecting plants and flowers and bringing them back to the house. In this way, Anne accumulated a fine herbarium and continued to sketch and study plants. In 1826, when she was twenty years old, Anne Pratt left home and moved to Brixton to live with friends. There, she tried to get her work published. It took her several years before her first book appeared in print. The majority of this collection is of either extinct or rare Wild flowers.
