Eleanor (Ellen) Charlotte Biddle (nee Jones):
A government assisted passenger who died August 21st, 1873 aged 35 years, while on board the ship Mary Shepherd. Eleanor was the wife of Zachariah Wright Biddle. She is likely buried at Lyttleton as the ship was not quarantined and was anchored at Lyttelton.

Just a note to add to this one  ...

A child was born to the above couple, (presumably ) aboard the "Mary Shepherd" ?   Her birth and her death, aged 3 days, are registered on NZ BDM indexes.
