MARRIED.
On the 17th inst. by decree at his
house Walkerville Mr Charles Cane to
Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Mr. John
Shepherd of Hindmarsh.

Two years later on 17 September 1857, Elizabeth and Charles's first and only child was born in Adelaide: Emma Elizabeth Cane.

When Emma was just a toddler, Elizabeth and Charles took her to England to visit relatives in Amersham in Buckinghamshire, not far from London. Tragically, on January 23, 1860, at High Street, Amersham, Elizabeth died suddenly of apoplexy. She was 24 years old.

The death information was received from Frederick Charsley, Coroner for Buckinghamshire. Inquest held 24 January 1860. Charles Cane remained unmarried for another 16 years. One hopes that he visited his daughter Emma several times, and one wonders why she didn't visit Australia. Emma was raised in England by Charles' sister, also named Emma Cane.

Death 23 January 1860 ‎(Age 24)‎ Amersham, Buckinghamshire, England

Cause of death: Suddenly of apoplexy

Hide Details Note: The note in the family bible states: "Elizabeth Cane--daughter to John & Harriett Shepherd, died January 23rd 1860 leaving her husband & daughter Emma to mourn their loss. Amersham, Birkshire, England.

This was the first recorded death.
