Elizabeth emigrated to Natal aboard the Phantom, arriving in Durban on 10 July 1858. She is recorded as aged 50, and surety was stood by George Andrews, her son-in-law. Accompanying Elizabeth on the Phantom were her husband Edward (49) and children Sarah (21), Lucy (19), Ellen (15), Edward (13), Selina (11), Alfred (10), Emily (8) and George (6). Mary Ann had previously emigrated aboard the Lady of the Lake in 1855, and the two elder daughters, Elizabeth and Harriet would come out in 1861 aboard the Leila. We know Eliza did emigrate - she was married in Pietermaritzburg in 1865 although I have not yet found record of the passage. Miriam did not appear with the family in the 1841 census, nor on the passenger lists and is presumed to have died while the family was still in England.

Death: 29 March 1866, aged 59

Buried: Wesleyan cemetery, Pietermaritzburg, Natal. The grave is located in Block A Row C Plot 31.
Elizabeth is buried in the same plot as her husband.
