Ellen Elliott (also "Elena Hellott" in her marriage record)[1] Anderson spells her name "Elliot" in his profile of William Beardsley, husband of daughter Mary.[2] Anderson also reports her as Ellen (Hellott) Harvey in his profile of her son, Richard Harvey, citing Jacobus who reports her as "Ellena Hellot ["Elliott"]" from her marriage record to "Richardus Harvie."[3][1] Evidently the priest who recorded their marriage used the Latin forms of their names.


Ellen was baptized on 16 Sep 1583 at Ilkeston, Derbyshire, England, the daughter of [Elliott-2544|Hugh Elliott]].[citation needed] Apparently the source for this information is "Family Group Sheets" from the Family History/Genealogy Center Archives, Salt Lake City.[4]

Marriage and Children

Ellen Elliott (as "Elena Hellott") married on 22 July 1604 at Denby (4 miles from Ilkeston), to Richard Harvey (as "Richardus Harvie"), clergyman of Ilkeston.[5][2][1] On 31 Dec 1616, Richard Harvey was buried at Ilkeston.[1]

Children of Ellen and Richard Harvey (recorded at Ilkeston):[1]

  1. Mary Harvey, bapt 5 June 1605; m 26 Jan 1631/2 at Ilkeston, to William ("Gulielmo") Beardsley
  2. Ann Harvey, bpt 11 May 1608
  3. Joan Harvey, bur 2 Jan 1610/11
  4. Richard Harvey, bpt 13 Aug 1612
  5. Thomas Harvey, bpt 5 Apr 1615, bur 1 Nov 1615

Death and Legacy

Ellen is presumed to have been living on 9 July 1617 when "Ellen Harvie and Thomas Harrison of Ilkeston yeoman" were appointed guardians of "Richard, Mary and Anne Harvie, children of deceased."[1] There is no evidence that Ellen emigrated with her children: son, Richard, and daughter, Mary (Harvey) Beardsley, and possibly daughter, Ann, who all settled at Stratford, Connecticut.[1]

Ellen is assumed to have died at Ilkeston, Derbyshire, England, where she lived.

This profile previously reported that Ellen was buried on 24 May 1616 at Ilkeston, Derbyshire, England.[citation needed] Note: this 24 May 1616 date may be in regards to settlement of her husband's estate, and meant as a died "after" date.

Research Notes

The Derbyshire - Ilkeston Parish Register reports a marriage at Ilkeston between "Joannes Hellot (i.e., Elliot) et Ellena Hellot .. 26 Jan 1593[/4?]."[6][7]

Jacobus and Anderson were both certainly aware of the Ilkeston Parish Register, but neither mention this 1593/4 marriage. Flinders apparently assumes that she was the identical Ellen.[8]
