In 1732–33, Mrs Grace studied the original Keeper's Wife in Charles Johnson's wretched Caelia and added to her list Jenny in The Beggar's Opera, Wishwell in The Double Gallant, a Shepherdess in The Judgment of Paris, the original Mrs Wisely in Henry Fielding's comedy The Miser, a part in a new anonymous farce The Mock Officer, Lucy in The Old Bachelor, the original Daphne in Theophilus Cibber's Damon and Daphne, and Prudence in The Amorous Widow. " The child may have died soon Page 29 after his several stage appearances in the afterpiece, for he was not heard of again.

In 1741–42 Mrs Macklin's new roles were Flareit in Love's Last Shift, Poundage in The Provok'd Husband, the Lady Abbess in The Comedy of Errors, and Mrs Haycock in Miss Lucy in Town; and in 1742–43, the original Mrs Useful in Fielding's scandalous comedy The Wedding Day and Mrs Frail in Love for Love.  The experience was dismal for the Macklins, but at least it gave Ann the opportunity to add to her list Berinthia in The Relapse, Dorcas in The Mock Doctor, Mrs Sullen in The Stratagem, and the Queen in Hamlet.

To Mrs Cibber and Miss Macklin.  For that occasion Mrs Cibber graciously relinquished to Maria her usual role of Monimia in The Orphan.  In Theory I dare say she is very near capital; and as I wish well to the Stage, I am impatient to see her properly brought forward; for I am convinced she, who on her first Appearance rose so near to Perfection, must prove, in some Time, one of the Theatre's greatest Boasts, and her own Merits, will secure her encouragement.  Depend on it she'll make a great figure.
