The birth appears on the convict Maria Jones record at Tasmanian Archives.  In the column under "Remarks":

Here are two of the requested marriage lookups -

Both Thomas and Lena May Moody's marriages took place at the King Street Independent Chapel (which is down Sandy Bay way)

Thomas' occurred on the 18/04/1907 - residence: Sandfly, age: 33, Farmer, born: Hobart, Parents: James Moody and Elizabeth Smith. Witness': Mark Wallis, 330 Elizabeth Street, Mary Ann Glorchey.

Lena May's occurred on the 8/04/1912 - residence Hobart, age: 28, domestic duties, born: Sandy Bay Parents: James Moody and Elizabeth Johns. Witness': M L Palfreyman, Hobart,  T R Coulson, Geeveston.

Given that the JOHNS/SMITH surnames have cropped up in relation to Elizabeth Jones and also the Brent/Smith/Moody connection in the post by Debrah could this below be the key to Elizabeth Jones' origins -

Peter, you are a legend  ;D

I was looking at all those connections with Maria JONES/LORD and my brain just didn't connect the names JONES and JOHNS (FAIL!  :-[ )

So it looks like Elizabeth's birth was registered as Hannah Jane but she was baptised as Elizabeth Jane.  I have seen this a few times, perhaps a mind change or one too many celebratory drinks for Dad on the way to the registrar.  Note he signs his name as JOHNS, I wonder what sort of an accent he had?
