Biography

Elizabeth Baker was the great-grandmother of Ethan Allen, an American Revolutionary War leader who fought for Vermont's independence.
Elizabeth Waterhouse was born circa 1660, perhaps a little later, to parents Jacob Waterhouse and Hannah Collins Waterhouse.[1]
She was married to an Unknown Baker, sometime before 4 November 1693, when she signed a document in her father's estate as Elizabeth Baker. She had a son, John Baker, born about 1680, estimated from his 17 January 1703/4 marriage, as well as a deed he signed 23 March 1707/8. On September 17 1693, Elizabeth "'Waterhouse owned ye Covt & baptized Elizabeth And her son John per a baptismal record of that date of the First Church of New London.[2]
She married second, Peter Hackley 31 August 1699 in New London. She died 12 March 1736 in Niantic (Lyme), New London County.[3]
In 1704 she received, as Elizabeth Hackley, distributions from the estates of her three deceased brothers. On 3 June 1705, her son Peter was baptized. She died before 23 March 1707/8, the date her husband Peter and son John began selling property belonging to her.[4]
Often it is suggested that John was her first husbands given name; however, the source noted in the first paragraph of this biography says that "Mr. Baker's first name is not known and his identity is not clear."[5] It is not the intent of this writer Parish-940 to follow this matter any deeper.
Elizabeth Baker was the great-grandmother of Ethan Allen, an American Revolutionary War leader who fought for Vermont's independence.
