Elizabeth was the child of Philip and Elizabeth Cambridge.  Philip and Elizabeth had seven children together: Elizabeth Clayton, Mary March, Robert Owen [1871-1950], Sarah North, Philip [1880-], Charles [1885-] and another child who died in infancy.

Philip worked as grocer in Rickmansworth [1871] and later as a general commission agent in Exeter [1881].  The family seem to have lived briefly in Queensland Australia in the mid 1880’s. In 1901 he was back in Cambridge and lving in Burrough Green and working as a farmer. Elizabeth Cambridge Snr died in 1902, Philip Cambridge Snr in 1914.

Elizabeth Clayton Cambridge was the eldest child and was born in March in Cambridge. She lived in Rickmansworth and then Exeter.  In 1901 she was living with her mother and siblings at 2 Jesus Terrace – her occupation was noted as book keeper and cashier. In 1911 she was living at 6 Bateman Street with her widowed father and sister Sarah North Cambridge.  Elizabeth was working as book keeper and saleswoman for the Singer Sewing Machine Company.

She died at Addenbrookes Hospital in February 1928 aged 58 years old. At the time of her death she was living with her sister Mary at Lyndhurst, 2 Pikes Walk.  She never married.

Saddie was the fourth of the Cambridge’s seven children.  She was born in Exeter, Devon.  In 1911 she was living with her widowed father and sister Elizabeth at 6 Bateman Street and was earning a living as a Lodging House Keeper.  By 1914 she was living at 1 Norwich Street.  She never married and died in 1933 aged 53 years old.

Mary March Clayton (17 September 1870 – 28 December 1947)

Mary was the second child of Philip and Elizabeth Clayton. She was born in March in Cambridgeshire, which is presumably where her middle name came from.  She lived in Rickmansworth and Exeter with her family.  In 1908 she was living at 96 King Street.  In 1911 was living at Lyndhurst, 2 Pikes Walk with her brother Charles and working as a Lodging House Keeper.   She continued to live 2 Pikes Walk through to 1947.  She died a spinster aged 77 years old at Addenbrookes Hospital.
