Heir of father.
Died soon after Princess Charlotte .(who died November 5, 1817)
According to the IGI she got married on 13 Dec 1796 at the Chaplaincy to the British Forces, Cape Town. Gentleman?s Magazine also reports that she was married at Cape Town.
?With the threat of Napoleon seizing the settlement, the British garrisoned the elegant Dutch town of Cape Town in 1795. Under Imperial British rule the city grew.?
Her father, grandfather, two of her g grandfathers, and gg grandfather were all clergymen.
It would appear from a somewhat outspoken passage in her father's will that Elizabeth went on 'the fishing fleet' to India to find a husband, her father stating:
My daughter Elizabeth Baillie is indebted to me by bond ... for the sum of E250 with interest being only a portion of the sum of money which I advanced on her going to the East Indies and which had she been unsuccessful in the expedition I would not have wished her charged with, but as she has returned richly provided for I should do injustice to the unprotected remaining parts of my family were I to bequeath the amount of her bond to herself.
Elizabeth, evidently as a result of her successful 'expedition', married on 13 December 1796 Colonel Hugh Baillie of Redcastle and Tarradale, co. Ross. Hugh married 2ndly on 2 July1821 Mary, daughter of Thomas Smith of Castleton Hall. By his first wife Hugh had, with three daughters (Maria Anne married the hon. William Ashley, son of the 6th Earl of Shaftesbury, Augusta Vesey, and Elizabeth who married William Brodie), a son the Rt Hon. Henry James Baillie, M.P., under-secretary of state for India. Henry married first on 29
December 1840 Philippa, daughter of the 6th Earl of Strangford. He died on 16 December 1865, leaving by his first wife Hugh, George, Elizabeth and Philippa.
