Biographies

An accomplished young colonial woman, made use of her talents in practical ways during her very short life.

embroiderer, poet, teacher and musician, was born on 16 January 1831, one of the twelve children of John Foreman and Mary Staff. In 1846 she began to teach at the school at Parramatta, NSW, which her parents had established in 1827. Eliza’s journal (1846-53) reveals that she was deeply religious. Her creative talents included writing verse, playing the organ, sketching and needlework. Apart from her large needlework picture of the triple-decker pulpit in St John’s Church of England, Parramatta, no other examples of her needlework have been found, despite references in her diary to them. Eliza died prematurely in 1854, aged twenty-three. This entry is a stub. You can help DAAO by submitting a
