Elizabeth Farmer 1772-1839

Elizabeth Farmer was born about 1772 in Hereford, Herefordshire, England. She was the first child of Benjamin Farmer and Mary Mills. A private baptism for Elizabeth was held on 1st Jun 1772, presumably at home - this could mean that Elizabeth wasn't in the best of health when she was born.

Later a church baptism for Elizabeth was held on 15th Jul 1772 at All Saint's Church, Hereford.

Elizabeth married Thomas Todd, A Factor, on 29th Dec 1798 at All Saints Church in Hereford.

The witnesses were Elizabeth's father, Benjamin Farmer, and her sister, Ann Farmer.

By 1802 Elizabeth was living with Thomas in Birmingham, Warwickshire, England and their son, Thomas Todd, Jr. was born on 10th Sep 1802.

On 29th Nov 1821, Elizabeth's father, Benjamin Farmer died. Benjamin had left a last will and testament, but failed to name an executor. Elizabeth pleaded for Letters of Administration and these were granted to her.

Elizabeth Todd nee Farmer died on 11th Jan 1839 somewhere in Edgbaston, Warwickshire from Apoplexy. She was 66 years old.

The big mystery to me, is who is Thomas Dudley and why was he present at the death, and the informer? As yet I have no clues.

Elizabeth was buried at St. Paul's Church, Birmingham on 15th Jan 1839. Her residence at the time of her death was given as Russell Row. Russell Row was apparently at Five Ways, Birmingham - so why was Elizabeth in Edgbaston at the time of her death?
