The birth of Elizabeth Ewen is not proven. She was likely born in either England or Virginia. Her birth is estimated to be about 1640 using the birth of her first son in 1658 as a reference for her age since most girls in the Maryland colony married at age 16.
If Elizabeth is the daughter of Richard Ewen she arrived in Maryland around 1649 with the large influx of Puritan migrants who moved to Anne Arundel County from Virginia. In 1649, Richard Ewen claimed land for transporting into Maryland his wife, Ann, and his children: David, Eliza and John Another patent record has a different wife listed, so he may have made two different trips into Maryland with two different wives. The second one calls the wife, Sophia and the children are named: Richard Jr., David, Eliza, John, Susanna, and Ann.
In 1659, Richard Ewen assigned one his land patents to Richard Talbott, his son-in-law.  This document gives proof to the relationship between Elizabeth and her husband, Richard Talbott . The birth of their first son is recorded in the minutes of the West River Quaker church:
Richard and Elizabeth also had a daughter named Elizabeth around 1660, which is proved by the will of her second husband, William Richardson.
The death of Elizabeth Richardson on the 1st day of the 11th month 1703/04 is recorded in the minutes of the West River Quaker church after a long list of births for her stepson, William Richardson, Jr. & his wife Margaret.
