Elizabeth married Thomas Purchase 27.5.1810, which would tie up with the allotment year, first child born Maker Cornwall, 7.4.1811 Joseph Vallack Purchase, Jane Caroline baptised 28.12.1813 he died 6.2.1813, and Jane Caroline baptised 28.12.1813, probably a few weeks old/months old, but given the name Smith! which is a bit odd, would have thought she would have been given Purchase name,if she was daughter of Thomas, but if Elizabeth was with James Smith by then perhaps she was his?
It would be interesting to find date of death for Thomas, and more importantly where he died, if he was at sea would have been buried there, how long he had been away from home? another interesting question!!!
Perhaps as Elizabeth was chasing the Navy for Money, she kept quiet about her new relationship until she got it, and then she married James 8.4.1814 This is getting very interesting!!! television drama in the making!!!
