The record of her marriage to Robert Chamberlain calls her “Elizabeth Scudder, widow” and the daughter of "the Rev’end Divine that was, Mr Thomas Stoughton."

On 14 May 1645 the General Court "upon weighty reasons moving, it is ordered that Mrs. Chamberlin, widow, sister to Mr. Israel Stoughton ... shall be allowed ... either a cow or five pounds" [ MBCR 2:113].

Elizabeth (Stoughton) (Scudder) Chamberlain died intestate, apparently in Ipswich, Massachusetts, before the inventory of her estate was filed on 30 1st month [March] 1647; the court ordered that the estate, which totaled only £32 4s. 5d., be divided: two parts to the son and one part to the daughter. Two years later, “Richard Betts, who married Joana Chamberlin. [was] allowed 27: 1 [March]: 1649, as administrator of' the estate of Samuell Chamberlin, brother to said Joana, who was heir to the estate."[Probate Records, Essex Co., 1:102]. Richard and Joanna (Chamberlain) Betts moved to Long Island, where his will, dated 16 March 1711, indicates his continuing associations with the Scudders [Abstracts of Wills on File in the Surrogate's Office, City of New York, … 2:113-14, 16:68].  It is unusual that Elizabeth Chamberlain's Scudder children did not share in her estate.  However, in cases when the estate was small and included no land, the courts sometimes exercised considerable leeway.S1
