The Elephant is a pirate ship from Lys.
A Dance with Dragons
The Elephant and the Goodheart are driven north by a storm. They drop anchor off Hardhome to make repairs and see the thousands of wildlings that had been led there by Mother Mole after the battle beneath the Wall. The desperate wildlings, unaware that they are dealing with pirates, want to be taken away. The two ships do not have room for them all, so they agree to take the women and children. The wildlings have nothing to eat, so the men send out their wives and daughters, hundreds of them, but as soon as they are out to sea the pirates put them below and rope them up, meaning to sell them all as slaves in Lys.
Another storm parts the Elephant from the Goodheart. After listening to the Goodheart's sailors at Pynto's, Arya Stark tells the kindly man that the Elephant may have made it back to Lys with its cargo of slaves.
