Elizabeth Daintrie

died 1634

Father Tristram Daintrie
Mother Lidia
First Husband Nicholas Bradbury
Second Husband George Birds
ChildrenAmy, Raphael


Elizabeth was probably born about 1601 in Fauld, the eldest child of Tristram and Lidia (1). A brother followed in 1602, and a sisters Isabella in 1607 and Joanne in 1608. There were also two more brothers, Arthur and John, but their birthdates are unknown (2).

The family moved to Edensor when she was about seven, and it was there in 1619 that she married Nicholas Bradbury of Youlgreave (3). They had a daughter Amy the following year (4), and then a son Raphael in 1622 (5). Soon afterwards they moved to Darley Abbey, but they hadn't been there long when Nicholas died (6).

On 5th September 1624 at Beeley she married again, to George Birds (7). I believe that her daughter Amy went to live with her grandfather, Elizabeth's father (1), and son Raphael may well have been brought up by another relative, perhaps on the Bradbury side. She and George had sons Tristram in 1625 (9) and George in 1627 (10), and then a daughter Elizabeth in 1630 (11).

Within a few weeks her stepmother died (12). This followed the death of her father the previous year (2). Even though her father's house in Edensor had been left to her brother John in their father's will, she and her family appear to have ended up moving in there somehow (perhaps alongside John?) as they were living in Edensor by the time their next daughter (another Elizabeth, the first one must have died in infancy (13)) was born the following year (14). She was presumably reunited with her daughter Amy upon moving to Edensor too. Her youngest daughter Jane was born in 1633 (15).

Elizabeth died in July 1634 (16). Her husband George remarried in 1637 to a woman named Hellen Ash, and they had two sons - William & George. He died in 1667.
