Daughter of Joseph Brant and his third wife Catherine. Elizabeth married a politician named William Johnson Kerr and they had five children together. In 1802 the British gave Joseph Brant approximately 3500 acres of land for his outstanding military service in the city of Burlington, Ontario. A portion of this land was inherited by Elizabeth Kerr upon her father's death in 1807. Elizabeth then donated a portion of her land to build Burlington's oldest church, St Luke's. Elizabeth Kerr and her husband William Kerr were buried on the same day at St Luke's on April 27, 1845.
