    • Elizabeth Burberry was born 1807 in Coventry and married Amos Fellows, a weaver. By 1833 Amos was dead and she was being transported to Sydney, NSW. She was transported as Elizabeth Fellowes, and was sent out on the "Fanny" (2) which arrived in Sydney on 2 February 1833. Elizabeth's convict indent gives the following information.
      She was a needlewoman, laundrymaid and housemaid, aged 26, and had been tried in Warwickshire quarter sessions on 7 April 1832 charged with stealing linen. She was sentenced to 7 years transportation. Elizabeth was described as taller than average for her time at 5. 5 ½., with a sallow complexion, dark brown hair and dark chestnut eyes. She had lost a tooth on the right side of her upper jaw and had a small mole on the left side of her upper lip. Elizabeth's indent gave aliases of Burberry, Falcons and Puddy. Her marital status was widowed with a boy and a girl. The girl was listed as Ellen, on board aged 3. The son remained in England [1].
      Elizabeth remarried in NSW to George Tooze and had four more children. George and Elizabeth Tooze lived as tenant farmers on the Buchanan estate just outside Maitland. Ellen Fellows was married three times and had two children as well as raising a step son. She was a very well respected midwife at Quorrobolong. She raised Henry Puddy (his mother was Margaret O’Conner who died in childbirth.) The curious thing is Elizabeth Burberry used an alias of Puddy and her daughter Ellen later married Henry's father Joseph Puddy. Coincidence or some prior English connection [1]?
      The only direct evidence for the name of Elizabeth's first husband comes from the marriage record of Ellen FELLOWS to George HOWARD in 1880 in New South Wales in 1880. At this time Ellen gives her mother's name as Elizabeth BURBERY and her father's name as Amos FELLOWS [1]. [5]

    3. [S9] Maitland Mercury, Saturday 13 March 1852.
      Death from Intemperance.-On Wednesday
      an inquest was held by Mr. Parker, at the Angel
      Inn, West Maitland, on the body of Elizabeth
      Tooze. It appeared from the evidence that Mrs.
      Tooze, who was residing with her sons in Mait-
      land while her husband was at the diggings,
      had latterly been drinking hard, principally of
      ale, and that she had always been subject to fits
      after drinking much. On Monday afternoon
      she appeared to be suffering, and complained of
      illness, and Emily Turner, the wife of a shoe-
      maker, who was stopping with her, and also
      drinking, advised her not to take any more ale.
      Neither Mrs. Turner nor Mrs. Tooze's sons
      thought it necessary to call in medical aid. On
      Monday evening Mrs. Tooze went out and ob-
      tained "more drink, and she drank more ale after
      her return home, Mrs. Turner refusing to join
      her in drinking. On Tuesday Mrs. Tooze com-
      plained of being ill, and of feeling a pain in
      her stomach, but she took no medicine, and at
      night retired to rest after drinking some tea,
      Mrs. Turner having refused to get her any ale
      during the day, although she pressed for it.
      About three o'clock on Wednesday morning
      Mrs. Turner and Mrs. Tooze were aroused by
      tho noise of a window slipping down, and Mrs,
      Tooze got up to see what it was. They all fell
      asleep again, but when, at seven o'clock in the
      morning, one of the young Toozes entered his
      mother's room he was shocked to find her lying
      dead in bed. Dr. Beardmore looked at the
      body, aud gave it as his opinion that death
      resulted from natural causes, accelerated by
      acts of intempérance. The jury returned a
      verdict to that effect.Fix
