Can anyone help please with information regarding one of Jane Austen’s cousins?

+8 votes

Elizabeth Motley Austen born 1780 in London was a cousin of Jane Austen (1775-1818). She  married Colonel William Skyring (1764-1806).

I have not been able to find any record of Elizabeth’s parents, her marriage to William Skyring or her death.

Any help appreciated
