Biography

This profile is part of the St Helens, Lancashire One Place Study.

Elizabeth Hill was born in about 1817 in Windle, Lancashire. She was the daughter of Peter and Ellen Hill. She was christened on 14 Sep 1817 at St Helens Chapel of Ease. Her family's address was given as Hardshaigh, and her father's occupation as labourer.

Elizabeth married Denis Norton or Naughton in 1841, in a registrar-attended ceremony in Prescot district. The marriage took place in the first quarter of the year.

By June 6th 1841, Dennis and Elizabeth were living with Elizabeth's family in Poldings Court, Eccleston. Their surname in the census is written "Nocter" - perhaps miscopied from the original census return. Elizabeth's father was working as a labourer, as was Dennis. Elizabeth's birthplace was mistakenly recorded as Ireland.

Their son William Norton or Naughton was born in about 1842 in St Helens, Lancashire.

Their son Henry Norton or Naughton was born in about 1848 in St Helens, Lancashire.

By March 30th 1851, Elizabeth, Henry and William were living with Elizabeth's mother in Bold Street, St Helens. Her brother James Hill was also in the household, as was a 14-year-old visitor named John Mitchell, who had been born in Coventry. A one-year-old nursling child, Elizabeth Delancy (born in Liverpool) was also in the household, probably being cared for by Elizabeth. Her husband was not in the household; he seems to have separated from her, and may have been lodging in Widnes,[1] but it's not certain if this is the right Dennis Norton, as he could have left the country.

By April 7th 1861, the family were living at 10 Bold Street, Eccleston. William and Henry were now both coal miners, and still living with their mother and maternal grandmother. Elizabeth was working as a farm labourer; her mother was a house keeper and mangler; a family of three were lodging with them, Jane Bate with her children James and Margaret. Jane was also a farm labourer. According to the census, Elizabeth's husband was still alive, but he wasn't in the household.
