Aunt of Elizabeth Turner and Louisa Brodie (both of whom q.v.), and sister of Oswald Brodie. She was described as of York Street Portman Square and formerly of St Ann's Jamaica in an affidavit she swore dated 28/10/1836 that her nieces were of age as of 11/12/1836, in connection with the compensation for 24 enslaved people on Lawrence Park in St Ann's Jamaica.   

  1. An Elizabeth Brodie aunt aged 55 unmarried born Jamaica was living with John Astell D. Cox, printer, his wife Mary (aged 32) and her sons (his stepsons) James William Smith and Brodie Smith, at Ham Common in 1851. In 1861 an Elizabeth Brady Brodie aged 66 born Jamaica was a visitor with the Reynell family at No. 1 Sheffield Gardens, where the head [although not given as such] was Elizabeth Lawrence Reynell, aged 47, born Jamaica. The death of this woman (Elizabeth Brady Brodie) was registered at Fulham Q2 1881 aged 87.

There are likely connections with Eliza Brodie of Trelawny No. 186, who claimed for two enslaved on the Spring Estate: Oswald Brodie and his wife Mary Ann née Knowles buried an infant at Spring in Trelawny in 1812 [Extracts from Parish Registers - Anglican Church www.jamaicanfamilysearch.com]. Lawrence Park belonged to William Whitehorne Lawrence whose third daughter Mary Brodie married James Smith at Marylebone in 1839 (and remarried J.A.D. Cox at Hammersmith in 1850) [Lawrence Family Pedigree, www.jamaicanfamilysearch.com accessed 09/06/2011].
