Elizabeth Macer Amps (1838 – 5 May 1925)

Elizabeth was the daughter of John (1797-1870) and Lydia (née Macer) (1800-1891), sister of Rev. John and William. Her father was a  carpenter and she was raised at 9 Queen Street (1841/1851) and Panton Street (1861/1871). After her brother John was widowed she went to live with him at the Vicarage in Ickleton (at least 1881-1901). John died in 1908 and she then moved to live at 38 Panton Street with companion/friend Lucy Patman (who is believed to have been a cousin of John’s wife Mary) and general servant Susan Todd (1911). Elizabeth died at home and her funeral took place on 8 May 1925.
