Inscription

Elizabeth Walker (1793- 14 February 1873)

Elizabeth was born in Great Gransden, a village eleven miles west of Cambridge.  Little is known of her early life, but it is believed she married Thomas Walker and they had at least one daughter: Mary Ann (1818-1890). By 1851 she was widowed and helping her sister Mary Baxter (also a widow) run an inn on Jesus Lane.  In 1871 she was living with her granddaughter Emily Mary Jacob (née Tweed) (1844-1883) and her family at 5 Park Street.

Emily was the daughter of Mary Ann Walker and her husband Edward Johnson Tweed (1809-1879) and she had married Thomas Edward Jacobs (1841-1914) in 1869. Thomas was the son of Aaron and Mary Jacobs and worked as a college cook’s clerk. Elizabeth died at Park Street aged 80 years old.

Marion Emily Walker (1872 – 16 February 1873)

Marion was the second of the six children born to Thomas and Emily Jacobs.  She was baptised at All Saint’s Church on 14 February 1873 – the same day her great grandmother died.  She died two days later, aged 9 weeks old.
