The Family Tree

Elizabeth Poll
1796-1871

Elizabeth Poll was the oldest child of Ishmael Poll and his wife Mary (née Fiddement) of Wymondham, Norfolk, England.

Elizabeth married Michael Goodings, a weaver of Wymondham in 1820 and soon afterwards gave birth to a daughter named Elizabeth. Unfortunately, Michael died in August 1821 whilst Elizabeth was pregnant with their second child. The child turned out to be a boy, which she named Michael.

In 1824, Elizabeth remarried to John Howlett, a weaver and she gave birth to a son just three months later. The couple went on to have six more children.

In 1841 and 1851, the couple are living in Burnt Fen, Lakenheath - very close to Mildenhall and the Cambridgeshire border. In 1861, Elizabeth appears as a Pauper widow living in the village Hilgay on the Cambridgeshire/Norfolk border. She is living with two borders - Robert Murfitt (a 17yr old Groom) and Thomas Johnson (a 21yr old Agricultural Labourer).

Elizabeth was pre-deceased by her husband by ten years.
