Hi,i have very little info on the Maxwells.My Ann Maxwell married Thomas Wilson early 1800s.I have a census for 1851 which lists Anns mother Elizabeth living with Ann and Thomas aged 65 making her born 1786,so i am presuming Ann would have been born around 1810.Thats all i have at the moment,sorry its not much good.I will let you know if anything else crops up.Thankyou.Anne.PS  I have no idea who Anns father was.
