Notes:  This is a photo of Elizabeth (Betsy) Throsby, nee Broughton as and old woman whereas most people would be familiar with the painting of Elizabeth I. Broughton as a young child , commonly known as Betsy of the Boyd.  The story of her capture by Maori in New Zealand and her subsequent rescue and return to her father, Commissary William Broughton, is very interesting.
