Elizabeth Highcock was born in 1863 in Thatto Heath, Lancashire, in what is now St Helens. She was the daughter of Thomas Highcock and Jane (Saunders) Highcock. Her birth was registered in the last quarter of the year, in Prescot district. She was christened on 2 Dec 1863 at St Mary the Virgin Church in Prescot. Her father's occupation was given as collier, and her family's address as Sutton.
Elizabeth married Samuel Bacon on 20 Jan 1884 at St Thomas' Church in Eccleston, Lancashire. Samuel was a packer living at 21 Borough Road; Elizabeth's address was 59 Wilson Street. Both were 20 years old, and neither had been married before. Their fathers were named as Samuel Bacon (labourer) and Thomas Highcock (miner). The witnesses were Thomas Hayes and Elizabeth Ann Hayes.
Their daughter Sarah was born on 2 Jul 1884 in 21 Brough St, St Helens. She died at 7 weeks old, and was buried on 20 Aug 1884 in St Helens Cemetery.
Their daughter Sarah Jane was born in 1889 in St Helens; her birth was registered in the last quarter of the year.
By April 5th 1891, they were living at 72 Phythian Street, Eccleston, with Samuel's uncle and aunt Peter and Ann Tabern. Samuel's uncle was 65, and although still described as a coal miner, he may not have been working since there is no mark in the "employed" column of the census. Also living with them was a James Tabern aged 12 - perhaps a grandson of Peter and Ann, though he was described as their son. Samuel was a glass bottle packer.
Elizabeth died in 1945, aged 83. She was buried on 15 Nov 1945 in St Helens Cemetery.
