Elizabeth Brown 3x Great Grandmother.

As a young child of about five years of age Elizabeth BROWN left England originally on the convict ship the "Earl of Liverpool" with her mother Eleanor BROWN who was found guilty of stealing 25/- from Samuel FREEMAN in the parish of Upper Heyford, Northampton, England in 1830.

Elizabeth and Eleanor arrived in Van Diemen's Land (VDL) on the ship "America" - it wasn't uncommon for convicts to be transferred from one ship to another, either before departure or enroute.

Little Elizabeth had some siblings back in England. Her mother Eleanor stated she was a widow with four children. Elizabeth was the only child to accompany her mother to VDL.

Elizabeth entered the Queen's Orphanage in 1833 and was released to her mother and step father, convict Lawrence KAVANAGH, after they left their assigned positions on Flinders Island in 1838, having been granted their tickets of leave.

Step father Lawrence died in April 1842; seven months later Elizabeth married James MONK, also a convict. James hailed from Loughton in Essex.

Three years after her marriage Elizabeth had a new step father, convict Luke PROVIS from Somerset in England. Luke's name has been entered incorrectly on the marriage register as Luke REVIS.

Elizabeth and James settled into married life down on the Tasman Peninsular raising their large family.

I lost track of step father Luke Provis after 1851.

Elizabeth's mother Eleanor died in 1859.

Elizabeth's husband James Monk died in 1889.

Elizabeth Brown died in 1908.
