Ellen was born c. 1575. This date is an estimate, based on the date of her marriage to John Elliot.

Ellen is sometimes assumed to have been the daughter of Thomas Horsley and Isabel Unknown (evidence uncertain).[citation needed]


The Derbyshire - Ilkeston Parish Register reports a marriage at Ilkeston between "Joannes Hellot (i.e., Elliot) et Ellena Hellot .. 26 Jan 1593[/4?]."[1][2]

The same register also reports a marriage at Ilkeston between "Richardus Harvie ac Elena Hellot .. 22 July 1604."[1] Unclear whether this is the identical "Elena Hellot."

According to Flinders, Ellen Horsley was married twice.[3] First husband was John Hellot, son of Hugh Eliot & Katherine Sare.[3] Second husband was Richard Harvey, parents unknown.[3] Richard Harvey had 3 known siblings; James, Ann, & Elizabeth.[3]

1) How is Ellen of Ilkeston, Derby born to parents of St Albans, Herts (100+ miles apart)?

2) How is Ellen "Horsley" associated with marriage records for an Ellena "Hellot"? Even her first marriage reports her maiden name as "Hellot" (not Horsley).

They may have been two different women named Ellen - or not?
