Elizabeth Horton (c.1797–1827)

ELIZABETH HORTON was an Irish convict who was tried and convicted in Dublin, Ireland in 1822 and sentenced to seven years transportation per Almorah (3) (1824). ELIZABETH died at the Parramatta Female Factory and was buried in the parish of St. John’s, Parramatta on 31 July 1827. The St. John’s burial register does not record that she died at the Female Factory, however, she is recorded as having died there on this website. There is also a significant age difference, with the latter website stating her age at death was 30 and the St. John’s burial indicating she was only 20. Further research required to confirm with primary evidence.
