ELIZABETH FLOOD was a convict’s child who died at the Parramatta Female Factory and was buried in the parish of St. John’s, Parramatta on 26 June 1832, with a recorded age of two years old. The newspaper report of the coroner’s inquest described her death as “sudden” and that the coroner concluded the cause was “worm fever.” Parentage not recorded. Her mother’s ship was recorded as Palambam (1831), but there were two Irish convict women on board with that surname: ANNE FLOOD and JANE FLOOD. Further research required.
