What's in a name
Eliza or Elizabeth
Eliza Jane Perry nee Logan
I have seen several Family Tree's with her name shown as Elizabeth Jane.
Her headstone at the Bombay Presbyterian Cemetery shows her name as Elizabeth Jane (but this is only a recent marker not one erected at the time of her death)
I can't find any baptism or christening record for her in Ireland
1 The first NZ record of her is the Passenger list of the ship Dauntless
Which left Dublin Ireland 30 Dec 1864 and arrived Auckland, New Zealand 2 June 1865
Her name is recorded as Eliza
2 On her marriage certificate to Thomas Perry 6th Jan 1867. Her name is shown as Eliza Jane
3 On the birth certificates of 3 of her children
John Thomas Perry (1867)
William Henry Perry (1876)
Eliza Jane Perry (1878)
her name is shown as Eliza Jane
But on 2 of her daughters birth certificates
Mary Ann (1871)
Essie Ellen Elizabeth Perry (1873)
her name is shown as Elizabeth
4 On her death certificate her name is shown as Eliza Jane and her age as 61
I also note that she had niece in Ireland who was christened Eliza Jane although this is also some times shown as Elizabeth.
This post is based on research by Laurie Collins and my late father Murray Griffin (husband of one of Eliza's great grand daughters)
