Name of creator
Jane Elliott was married to Thomas F[rederick] Elliott (1808-1880). Thomas F. Elliott was born in London in 1808 and educated at Harrow. He entered the Colonial Office and from 1835 to 1837 served as secretary to the Earl of Gosford's Commission of Inquiry in Canada. In 1833 he marrried Jane Perry, the daughter of James Perry, the owner and editor of the Morning Chronicle. The Elliotts left Canada in 1837 when he was appointed chief of the first Department of Emigration in England. Jane Elliott died in 1861.
Scope and content
The collection consists of a diary kept from 1 November [1835?] to 14 March [1837?] when the Elliotts were living in Quebec City, Canada. The diarist is presumed to be Jane Elliott. Also in the collection is a play, "My Niece!!--In One Act"; a diary titled "Diary or Young Night Thoughts", 2 May 1830 to 10 September 1830; an undated essay about chalk; and 2 undated letters, written in Italian, possibly from R. Ferry, with one addressed to Luigia. The pencil drawing is presumably of the St. Lawrence River.
