Elizabeth Freeman Elliott came to Australia at the age of 27 from Northumberland, England with husband Abraham Byram (age 27) and daughter Maria Byram (aged 3), on the ship 'Parsee' on 17 January 1853 (Location IMM/115, Page 46, M/f no. M1696 - Queensland State Archives)

Note: Elizabeth's surname on the shipping records is listed as 'Byram' but there is a marriage reference in 1872 in Queensland. So they either married twice, or she said she was married when they boarded the ship to Australia.

The shipping records also state that she could both read and write. (Source: http://www.chapelhill.homeip.net/FamilyHistory/Photos/Moggill-cemetery-Brisbane/bruce/atol.html)
