Claimed convict


Elizabeth (called Eliza) (nee Hull HART) SWEETINGHAM
b: 1806 - d: 5 March, 1846

M1: Alexander SWEETINGHAM (I) on 28.2.1826, at the Church of St Mary in the City of Southhampton in England.
Child of this marriage: a son, Alexander SWEETINGHAM (II) who sailed with her on Eliza III (2).
Elizabeth’s mother Lydia Hart, also sailed as a convict on Eliza III (2).

M2: William Henry COPE married at Trinity Church in Hobart 11.2.1839
Eliza Sweetingham is noted as ‘widow’ on the certificate of her marriage to William Henry Cope, in Hobart in 1839 so it would seem either Alexander (1) died or he did not come to Australia and was lost track of.

Eliza COPE died at Merry Creek, Coburg. The age at death shown on her headstone is not accurate, as she was born in 1806 she was 40 years.
Her headstone is at the Old Pioneers Cemetery in Fawkner, Victoria.

Her headstone is inscribed:
To the memory of
Eliza Hull Cope
wife of
William Henry Cope
Who departed this life
MARCH 5 1846
Aged 33 years
A devotedly attached good wife and mother.
