I do not believe Elizabeth married Michael FINNEGAN, they were probably just in a relationship. Elizabeth married another convict Francis BERRY in 1824.  Francis was moved from Sydney to Newcastle leaving Elizabeth to fend for herself & child.  As Francis did not return to Sydney, Elizabeth had a relationship with John DELL which resulted in a child.  Elizabeth died in Darlinghurst jail aged approx 76.

Death certificates of 2 of Elizabeth’s children show Elizabeth’s name as Elizabeth CASSIDY therefore I believe her maiden name was CASSIDY.
