Elizabeth Frampton

This photo, kindly shared with me by her descendant, Claire, is of Elizabeth Frampton, a 5x great-grandmother of Ari’s.

Elizabeth was born in 1803 in Wimborne Minster, Dorset, the daughter of James Frampton and (I think) Elizabeth Miller. (The baptism record doesn’t mention the mother.)

On 15 December 1832, Elizabeth married a miller’s labourer, Isaac Dibben, also in Wimborne Minster.

The couple had four sons: James Pottle, George, John Frampton, and Fred Albert. (I am intrigued to know where the Pottle came from. There was a 1785 marriage between an Elizabeth Pottle and a John Frampton in the right place, but I can’t connect them to our families yet.)

The 1841, 1851 and 1861 censuses all show the family in Witchampton.

(This could be the mill where Isaac worked. Witchampton had two.)

Elizabeth died in July 1869 and was buried at Witchampton on the 2nd of August.
