Elizabeth Ann Haig-1837

Elizabeth Ann Haig-1837New! This sampler is new to our collection.

Elizabeth Ann Haigh was christened 11 June 1826 in Halifax, Yorkshire. She was the daughter of Charles and Martha Haigh. She was the third of six children; siblings were John (1823-1826), Henry (1824), David (1828), William (1832), Ann (1836). The 1841 census lists the family living at Coat Hill in Halifax.

In 1850, at the age of 24, she married Thomas Ingle, a Land Agent. The 1851 census tells us the family is living at 32 Darley Street. They have one servant but not children. When the 1861 census is taken, Elizabeth is now a widow (Thomas had died in 1859), living in Fairfield with her three children Elizabeth (1851), Mary Ellen (1855-1862) and William (1857).

Elizabeth remarries in 1868 to John Willis, who owned a brass foundry. In the 1871 census the family is living on Edmund Street in Horton. The household consists of Elizabeth, her husband John, her stepson Christopher and her daughter Martha Ann. In 1878 Martha Ann marries her stepbrother, Christopher. By the 1881 census, Elizabeth is again a widow and living with Martha Ann and Christopher. For the 1891 and 1901 census reports she is still living with Martha Ann and Christopher but they have all moved to Southport. Elizabeth dies aged 76 at 1902.
