A marriage was documented in PEI Marriage Registers between Elizabeth McArthur and William Briant or Brine. Witnesses were Archibald and Alexander McArthur, and the couple were both from Lot 14. In the 1881 census, Elizabeth's age was 58, or born in 1823. On the 1891 census she said her father was born on the Island and her mother in Scotland.

Given that she named her first four children William, Maria (paternal grandparents), then John and Ann, I would be inclined to place this Eliza with the family of John and Ann McArthur.

The Bryant family tree on the Island Register said "William b. September 30th 1819, P.E.I. and baptized 1820 in St Pauls Anglican church in Charlottetown , P.E.I. It is believed his wife Betsy is an aunt of Maria MacArthur."

It seems likely that Ann Maria McArthur, who married William's brother David, would be related to Elizabeth.
