Elizabeth (Eliza) Hunt was born in Leigh Dorset and her birth was registered in the First Quarter of 1856 [1].

According to the 1861 Census she was living with her parents in Leigh, Sherborne, Dorset and at the age of 6 was employed as an Agricultural Labourer![2]

In 1871 Elizabeth was living in White Hall Road, Leigh, Sherborne, Dorset, England, still with her parents but no is occupation specified.[3]

In 1881 so far there is no sign of her although there is a reference to an Elizabeth Hunt of the right age in a Workhouse

In the First Quarter of 1882 [4] her Marriage to John Benjamin Williams was registered.

In 1891 Elizabeth was living with her husband John Benjamin Williams, 3 sons and a daughter in Bath Road, Heston, Brentford, Middlesex, England.[5]

By 1901 the family had moved to 4 Gascoyne Cottages, Heston, Brentford, Middlesex, England now with 4 sons and 3 daughters.[6]

In 1911 the family had moved to 13 Belgrave Road, Hounslow, Heston, Middlesex, England the family count had got down to 3 sons and 1 daughter.

There is a GRO record for the death of an Elizabeth Williams for 1924 but at this stage it cannot be confirmed that this is the correct person. The 1939 register confirms that at this time her husband was a widower.
