Elizabeth Andrews was born in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts on January 15, 1684/5 to William Andrews and Margaret Woodward.[1][2][3]

That she was the daughter of William and Margaret Andrews, as is stated in the record of her birth, was proven in the estate papers of her father, William, when his daughter, Elizabeth, the wife of Joshua Norwood, was given 20 pounds. Please see the profile of her father for the complete text of the estate records.

She married Joshua Norwood on September 26, 1704, at the Chebacco Parish Church in Ipswich.[4][5] Her name was written Andros on her marriage record.

Elizabeth and Joshua Norwood made their home at Pigeon Cove in Gloucester.[6]
