Eliza had a few convictions in Monmouthshire, one discharged, one committed for 14 days.  This charge was with two other women, Elizabeth Evans and Catherine Preece. They were charged with on the 8th May 1850 feloniously assaulting George Abraham, and stolen from his person three sovereigns, one half sovereigns, six half crowns, one shawl and two pieces of satin.
This was reported in the “Monmouth Beacon” 10 August 1850 under “Monthmouth Summer Assizes.”
