This is a news item about Ann MOYLAN, cook at Geelong in 1864 for  people named NOONAN at their hotel.
The woman you are seeking was known to use Ann as her first name

Sue thank you, it takes a lot of chipping away to get through the brick walls

Yes, it does, but certificates, as suggested by other helpers, is the only way to move along with certainty.
Debra has let you know that the birth certificate of the son Alex will give a lot of parental detail.

Just rechecking one previous post from Probate, John Allan Pinchen states that Isabella was the only child of Peter and wife?

Oh I just noticed Alexander was only 8 months when he died so John Allen probably didn't know of him

Enter the information to bring up Alex ROBERTSON birth. The index number is 9825

Pay and wait for email to download.

The website has had some overhaul work lately and needs patience.

Thanking you, I never new you could get them instantly.

I have just been having another look re immigration records.
It appears there is a Anne Moylan, same age, same arrival date,Irish heritage, she arrived on the Mindoro, Melbourne.
This is almost identical to Hannah Moylan except she arrived on the Admiral Boxer, Geelong, so I am thinking that Anne, Anna, or Hannah are two different ladies?

Ann, Anna Johanna Hannah are all interchangeable.
MOYLAN is not an uncommon surname.

One (or neither) of the women so far found, may be the correct one.

I think there is not much else to be located of real use on the public records.
