The Funnell Family
Elizabeth (Funnell) Ford
1807, in Newmarket, Cambridgeshire,
3 June 1807 in Newmarket St Mary,
Ford on 27 May 1828, in St Mary, Portsea, Hampshire, England
Elizabeth emigrated to Natal aboard the Phantom, arriving in Durban
on 10 July 1858. She is recorded as aged 50, and surety was stood by George
Andrews, her son-in-law. Accompanying Elizabeth on the Phantom
were her husband Edward (49) and children Sarah (21), Lucy (19),
Ellen (15), Edward (13), Selina (11), Alfred (10), Emily (8) and George (6).
Mary Ann had previously emigrated aboard the Lady
of the Lake in 1855, and the two elder daughters, Elizabeth and
Harriet would come out in 1861 aboard the Leila.
We know Eliza did emigrate - she was married in Pietermaritzburg in 1865
although I have not yet found record of the passage. Miriam did not appear
with the family in the 1841 census, nor on the passenger lists and is
presumed to have died while the family was still in England.
29 March 1866, aged 59
Wesleyan cemetery, Pietermaritzburg,
Natal. The grave is located in Block A Row C Plot 31.
Elizabeth is buried in the same plot as her husband.
1841: West Street, Warblington,
1851: Havant Road, Warblington,
