Note: Downloaded from Trove.

Note: In the bigamy trial of Theodore Arthur De Meur, Elizabeth stated that she was about 15 years of age at the time of this marriage. Parents names are not cited in the marriage record cited, but it states that she was a native of Lincolnshire. However, the records cited for her next marriage and her death adds support to the view that this is the right Elizabeth Smith.
