Parents: Daniel Whiting and Elizabeth Archer (1)
Born: c.1806 in Shudy Camps (1)
Baptised: 25th May 1806 at St Mary's Parish Church, Shudy Camps, Cambridgeshire (1)
Married: Stephen Webb, on 28th November 1824 at St Mary's Parish Church, Haverhill.(2)
Bio: Apart from the fact she was born in Shudy Camps in around 1806 before her parents moved to Haverhill, we know very little about Elizabeth.
There is even a certain amount of supposition involved in attributing her to be the Elizabeth Whiting that married Stephen Webb in 1824. There was a Stephen and Elizabeth Webb who lived in Haverhill and both died in the 1870's. The censuses and burial records, are, however, very consistent in the fact that she was born around 1790. This is too early for her to be the daughter of Daniel and Elizabeth. The 1851 and 1861 census also place this Elizabeth Webb as being born in Kedington. The 1841 census showing the couple living in Puddle Brook, Haverhill, gives two sons of Stephen and Elizabeth Webb ; these being John and James, both born c.1826. The baptisms of John and James Webb, sons of Stephen and Elizabeth took place in Castle Camps on 3rd June 1827 (3).
