Elias was born about 1771 (m), possibly in or around Little Hucklow (n). Nothing is known of his early life yet....however...
By 1792 he was living in the parish of Tideswell and working as a fustian weaver. He married Elizabeth Redfern at St John the Baptist's on 24th June 1792 (a), and they may have initially lived in Little Hucklow, at the time their eldest son Thomas was born the following year (b). Soon after this they were living in Litton, and their eldest daughter Sarah was born there in 1794 (c). Another daughter Nancy followed in late 1796 (d), but then eldest daughter Sarah died of smallpox in the outbreak of spring 1797 (e). Their next child was another daughter, Mary, born in 1799 (f). The year 1801 got off to a happy start with the birth of son George (g). However within a month or so of this, daughter Mary died (h), and then within another month of that, son George also died (i). Their youngest son Matthew was born in 1802 (j), and their youngest daughter Elizabeth in 1805 (k).
Elias's wife Elizabeth died in Litton early in 1811 (l), aged just 39, but Elias lived for another 16 years, dying at Litton Dale in 1827 aged 56. He was buried in Tideswell on 7th June (m).
