Elizabeth was born February 8, 1815 and was baptized on August 26, 1815. She was the second of six children born to Rev. Patrick Brontë and Maria Branwell. On July 1, 1824, Rev. Brontë sent Elizabeth and her older sister, Maria to the Clergy Daughters' School at Cowan Bridge in Lancashire. Her two younger sisters, Charlotte and Emily, followed a few months later. The conditions at the school were poor, and many of the students withdrew due to illness when a typhoid epidemic swept through the school that winter. Elizabeth was withdrawn from the school on May 31, 1825 and died June 15, 1825 from tuberculosis. She is buried in the family crypt in the Church of St Michael and All Angels at Haworth, Yorkshire, England.
