Elizabeth Harris, b 7/2/1823 in England was the second daughter of Thomas and Patience Harris.

It is on record that Thomas Harris' Aunt was the Mother of Captain Cook. Maybe this connection influenced them to come to Australia which they fondly referred to as "Jimmy's land" for after moving about England for many years seeking work Thomas and Patience Harris together with their nine children emigrated, arriving in port Jackson on the 11 October 1837 on the ship "Augusta Jessie" a trip that took four months. 
Elizabeth married (2nd) Luke Conroy.
