Elizabeth Pate was sentenced to death for forging 'three pieces of false and counterfeit money' at Middlesex G[aol]. D[elivery]. on 20 October 1831 (her age given at the trial as 22), but the sentence was commuted to life as she appears on the transport Burrell which sailed from Woolwich on 8 January 1832 with an all-female complement of 101 prisoners, arriving in Port Jackson on 20 May. She was granted a ticket of leave within the district of Liverpool on 3 April 1841, cancelled for 'immoral conduct and seducing a prisoner of the crown from his service', but restored on 9 December 1842 provisional to her remaining in the employ of a Mr Lee (in the district of Sydney), altered to Camden after she left Lee's employment in 1847. She received a conditional pardon (restricting her to the Colony) in March 1848. Details of the trial, where she was indicted with her accomplices John Pate and William Hawkins, can be found at www.oldbaileyonline.org.uk (The Proceedings of the Old Bailey Ref: t18311020-8).
