Elizabeth Brockman, the daughter of Janet and Lieut. Frederick William Slade, married Edmund R. Brockman in 1852 and lived in the York and Upper Swan region east of Perth. They had six children.
Some of Brockman's poems, which appeared in the Western Australian Church of England Magazine, were published in book form in Edinburgh by her uncle (believed to be in the 1880s) for private circulation, but no other details are known. In 1915, a collection of her poems was published by her family.
