Elizabeth Lincoln (née Giddings).
Elizabeth Giddings was the fourth of the eight children of Daniel Watson Giddings and his wife Sarah Jane Franks of March, Cambridgeshire.
In 1851, Elizabeth is working as a 'house servant' at the house of surgeon William Wray on the High Street of March, Cambridgeshire. By 1852, at the age of 21, Elizabeth illegitimately gave birth to her first child, a daughter whom she named Sarah Elizabeth. It's likely that Elizabeth would have been dismissed from her job because of her pregnancy.
Elizabeth appears on the 1861 census at Burrow Moor, March as an Agricultural Labourer and by 1862, Elizabeth had married Charles Lincoln (originally from Potton, Bedfordshire) and the couple moved to Little Downham Fen and were living at the Railway House on Main Drove. Charles is known to have worked as a platelayer.
By the time of the 1871 Little Downham Census, the couple are joined by their daughter Jane, aged 7.
Elizabeth was a Baptist. Two of her grandchildren, by her second daughter Jane, became Baptist missionaries, frequently travelling to India.
Four months after Elizabeth's death, her widower Charles re-married to widow Elizabeth Taylor (née Miller).
