This would indicate a birth year of about 1782-3. The various census entries however, indicate various birth years. In 1881 she is recorded as age 96 (b cir 1784-5), in 1851 as 68 (cir 1782-3), in 1841 between 50 and 54 (cir 1786-1791).
Note : She has not been found on the 1871census and a possible entry in the 1861 census has not been confirmed.
Noted events in her life were:
• Occupation: lace worker, at the time of the census in March 1851. 256 She was then by then widowed and living with two adult children, a grandson and two lodgers at Church Street, Sawley, Derbyshire.
