Letters from Elizabeth in 1875 to her daughter in law (married to Thomas Henry known as Tom) show that she was living with her son Josepth (Joe) and she welcomes Mary into the family. She also enquires into the health of Mrs. Denton (Mary's aunt). In 17878 she writes about her sister Maria, who is living with Tom and Mary. In the 1881 Census, Elizabeth had moved to live (with her son Joseph Bolton) in Streatham. Note 2 is addressed to her three sons and refers to the disposal of her belongings.
She lived here as a widow with her sons and sister, in 1861
