Elizabeth Stevens (1814 – 17 September 1877)

She grew up on the Lynn Road  in Littleport where her father was a boatwright, although he was later documented as a proprietor of houses. Elizabeth lived with him until his death in January 1863 and then moved to live at 16 Panton Street, Cambridge where she died aged 63 years old. Her death was said to have been ‘deeply regretted by all who knew her’.
