  The following connection comes from BP1870 ('Cockburn (of Cockburn & Ryslaw)') which identifies Eliza as granddaughter of Elizabeth Brydges. We show her as daughter rather than niece of Alexander who is identified by TCB as 1st son/heir (rather than only son) of Alexander of London. That is supported by Burke's 'Royal Families' (vol 2 (1851), #clxxxv* ('Cockburn of Cockburn')).
