Elizabeth Slaughter was the only daughter and heiress of William Slaughter, of Rochester, Kent.
She married Sir Walter Roberts in 1726. They had the following daughters.
Jane Roberts, his daughter and eventually his sole heiress, married on 23 October 1752, George (Beaucleark) 3d Duke of St. Albans, but died s.p. (without offspring) in December 1788 and was buried at Cranbrook. The manor of Glassenbury passed, under her will, to Thomas Roberts of the county of Cork, her Grace being apparently under the impression that he was of her family, inasmuch as his great great grandfather, the Rev. Thomas Roberts, Chancellor of the diocese of Cork (died 1664, aged about 74), was, in a pedigree (by Hawkins, Ulster, 22 June 1775), made identical with Thomas Roberts, 2nd son of the 1st Baronet. The last-mentioned Thomas Roberts, however, died s.p. (without offspring) in 1644. Had such descent been proved, it would have carried with it the Baronetcy of 1611 and the right to the Coat of Arms borne by those Baronets. That pedigree, however, was rejected by the Heralds' College, so a new Coat of Arms was granted to him, and the Grantee was created a Baronet on 20 September 1809. Now he was being described as "of Glassenbury, co. Kent and Brightfieldson, co. Cork."
Elizabeth Roberts died in 1743, aged sixteen.
However, Sir Walter Robert died s.p.m. (without legitimate male issue) on the 7th and was buried on the 15th of July 1745, at Cranbrook, aged 54, when the Baronetcy became extinct.
She died on the 15th and was buried on the 25th of July 1744, at Cranbrook, aged 42.
The administration of the goods of her intestate was on 24 October 1745."
