Elizabeth Roydhouse

James and Mary baptised a daughter, Elizabeth in 1797.


In 1813 a baptism was performed at St Giles in the Fields, Holborn for an Eliza Roydhouse, base-born child of Elizabeth, servant and the reputed father, Hugh Elliott, gentleman. St. Giles in the Fields

Store Street,5 minutes walk from St Giles Church.

Almost 20 years later, a marriage for an Eliza Roydhouse to widower Robert Crook was performed by Banns on the 1st April 1832 at St Mary’s, Islington.

St Mary’s Church is about half an hours walk from where her grandmother Mary lived with Walter Mapperly, her second husband at his death in 1847. The map also shows how close Rawstorne Street is to these other locations.



In 1835, the death of a one year old Robert Crook is a strong possibility to be Eliza and Robert’s first child.

From that date, the fate of this family has no real proofs or evidence although the death in 1857 in St Giles district is a strong possibility.
