  • Elizabeth left England 12th October 1840 and arrived in Austalia on 4th February 1841. She is shown as a passenger on the Marquis of Hastings to Australia together with her husband and five children [Emma, Mary, Charles, Joseph and James Thomas].  They were bounty (assisted) passengers.  Her parents were given as James Kinsman and Mary Ann Spencer and her birth date as November 1806.

    At the time, her father was married to Mary Ann Spencer and she may well have been remembered by Elizabeth as being her mother.  Her actual mother was James' first wife, Ann Webb, who died in 1813 when Elizabeth was 7 years old.

    Mary 11y Feb 1841

    The Evans family lived in Fort Street, Sydney and then moved to 2 Domain Terrace which is located behind the present day State Library of NSW.

    Elizabeth is mentioned in the landing papers of her cousin, Mary Ann Kingsman, when she arrived in Australia on the 26th July 1853 from England on board the Earl of Elgin.  Mary Ann said that she had three cousins living in Australia, one named Evans living on George Street, Sydney.

    Elizabeth died of Cancer in 1861 aged 54.
