Elizabeth (Betsy) Millington from Denby

One of Ari's 6x great-grandmothers was Elizabeth Millington, who was born in 1786 in Denby, Derbyshire. She was the youngest child of collier Isaac Millington and his wife Elizabeth Chaddock.

Her baptism took place at the church in Denby on 15 April 1787.

On 16 November 1807, Elizabeth married a framework knitter called Thomas Parker at St Clement's church in Horsley.

The 1841 census shows Elizabeth at the age of fifty, living at Sunny Hill, Milford.

She died in June 1863 and was buried on the 16th at St Alkmund's in Duffield.
