Eliza Worth is actually Elizabeth (Becky) Worth born in Chedle in 1829 and who accompanied her mother Sarah Worth and Aunt Mary Worth as convicts on the Mary 111 arriving in Hobart Town in October 1831. Still researching the period after arrival before she was admitted to the King's Orphan School. Sarah Worth married James Nind in 1836 and was granted her freedom in 1837 and then had her daughter released in to her care. Sarah had a son John Worth (aka George Dale) who died at the Orphanage and she had a daughter to James Nind named Ellen. No other siblings are known. Elizabeth married John Broughton (who is still being researched) and was the matriach of the Broughton cab family.
