Elizabeth tried to establish her identity regarding money tied up in England, from papers her
mother Harriet had left her, she was unable to because her grandfather John had not added his
second name "Finlay" the documents, therefore she couldn't prove that she was a
descendant of the John Finlay Basedon who had money/land tied up with the Crown. The documents were kept hidden in a walking cane. The cane had been given to Elna Johnston by Elizabeth,
and borrowed by Florence prior to her death, the cane could not be found at the time of her
demise. Perhaps it will surface somewhere one day, let's hope that who ever has it realises the
family value of the cane.The documents were handed to a member of the family to do
with as they might. It is unknown whether anything ever came of the documents, and where they are now.
Information from Elna Langford Sidebottom.
Since then new information regarding the documents and inheritance has come to light, thanks to Mary Hoppen, grand daughter of Esther Tickner. This of course has yet to be authenticated, but to date
Elizabeth married Thomas Johnston on 4 Apr 1888 in Hawthorn Vic.1 (Thomas Johnston was born on 15 Feb 1856 in Latrobe, Tasmania,1 died on 27 Nov 1941 1 and was buried in Hearnes Oak..)
