Hanchard, Elizabeth (1782–?)

Elizabeth Curtain was sentenced to seven years transportation. She arrived in Sydney in 1801 aboard the Nile. In 1806 her status was given as prisoner and her occupation was listed as nurse. She was described as living with John Griffiths.

She married Robert Williams (First Fleet Convict, 1788, “Scarborough”) at Parramatta on 11 May 1807. Robert was a widower after the murder of his first wife Elizabeth Young (Third Fleet Convict, 1791, “Mary Ann”). He had a young son Robert aged about 12 at the time of this marriage. It would appear that Robert and Elizabeth had no children.

In the 1814 Muster she was listed as the wife of W. Green. By 1825 she was living with Daniel Hanchard. Her date of death is not known.
