Was allegedly raped by Daniel McKay on the 31st July 1805, however, the court case was dismissed and concluded that it was an attempt by Elizabeth and her husband, Billy Blue, to frame Daniel McKay. Several significant people in Sydney saw the verdict as a miscarriage of justice and regarded their challenge as a sign of moral integrity.
