Elizabeth was born in Tideswell in 1741, the second daughter of Robert & Elizabeth, and baptised there on 3rd May (1). A younger sister, Margaret, followed a couple of years later (2), but then her elder sister Ellen died towards the end of 1744 (3). Her brother George was born in 1746 (4).

Elizabeth had already moved to Litton with her parents before she married George Redfern, a stone mason also from Litton, on 2nd April 1761 (5), and they set up home in Litton (if not immediately then certainly within a couple of years (6)). Their eldest daughter Anne was born in 1762 (7), follwed by Peggy in 1763 (8). They had a son George in 1766 (9), then a daughter Elizabeth in 1771 (10). Their daughter Ellen died in 1773 (11), but her date of birth or age is unknown. Their youngest son, William, was born in 1778 (12).

Elizabeth's mother died in 1780 (13), and her father four years later (14). Her youngest son William died shortly before his tenth birthday in 1788 (15).

Elizabeth died in Litton in 1809 and was buried in Tideswell on 5th December (16). Her husband George, lived for a further 8 years or so, dying in July 1818 (17).
