Elizabeth was born around the middle of 1752, in Flagg (1), the fourth child of Solomon and Mary. Her eldest brother Solomon was about 6 years older (2), Mary, her eldest sister was about 3 years her elder (3), and Matthew was about two years older than her (4). She was baptised on 19th December 1752 in Chelmorton.

Sometime probably just after her baptism, her brother George was born (5). However he must have died within his first couple of years, because by January 1755, her parents were having another son baptised as George (6). He was followed by James in 1756 (7), Samuel in 1759 (8), and Martha in 1760 (9). Her eldest sister Mary died in 1762 (10). This was followed a few months later by the birth of Joseph (11), then Molly in 1764 (12), Hannah in 1765 (13), and finally Benjamin in 1768 (14). Her youngest sister Hannah died in 1771 (15).

Elizabeth married Samuel Allen, the inn-keeper of the Duke of York at Pomeroy (22), on 31st December 1782 at St John the Baptist's in Chelmorton (16). Her mother died at around this time in either 1782 or early 1783 (24)

Elizabeth and Samuel's first child Sarah was born around October 1783 (17). Sometime in 1784 Samuel and Elizabeth left the Duke of York (22), but stayed in Flagg (18). Their second daughter Mary was born around April 1786 (18), and then their youngest child Samuel around April 1788 (19).

Her husband Samuel died in May 1802 (20) and left everything to Elizabeth in his will (21). Her father died in March the following year (25). Elizabeth's death has not been traced yet.


Brief details of her children:



Sources:

  1. Elizabeth's baptism entry in Parish register of St John the Baptist's, Chelmorton reads:
    [1752, 10ber] 19 Bapd Elizabeth Daughter of Solomon Mycock of Flagg and Mary his wife.
    However she was probably born quite a while before before her baptism, as her next younger brother George was baptized the following month (5).
  2. Parish Register of St John the Baptist's, Chelmorton includes the entry:
    [1746] July 3rd Bapd Solomon Son of Solomon Mycock of Flagg & Mary his wife
  3. Parish Register of St John the Baptist's, Chelmorton includes the entry:
    [1749] April 30th Bapd Mary Daughter of Solomon Mycock of Flagg & Mary his wife
  4. Parish Register of St John the Baptist's, Chelmorton includes the entry:
    [August 1751] 25th Bapd Matthew Son of Solomon Mycock of Flagg & Mary his wife

  8. Transcription of all the Mycock entries from Chelmorton parish registers by Ken Mycock shows the baptism of Samuel, son of Solomon and Mary Mycocke of Flagg on 16th March 1759. However I was unable to confirm this in the register. All I could find was a slightly confusing entry from the day after (17th March) which read
    Bapd Solomon Mycock of Flagg Likewise Edm. Son of Geo Yeoman of Buxton & Alice
    This needs further confirmation, maybe from the Bishop's Transcripts.

  19. Samuel was baptised on 13th June 1788. He was 62 years old when he died on 29th April 1850, meaning he was probably born a matter of days before the 29th April 1788.

  22. There is a list of previous innkeepers on the wall in the pub (which is duplicated at http://juliet22.users.btopenworld.com/jsevans.dofyork.html). It shows Samuel Allen was the inn-keeper from 1775 to 1784. As there only appears to have been one Samuel Allen in the area at the time then it must be the same person.
  23. Parish register of All Saints' Bakewell records a marriage between William Farmer of Flagg and Mary Allen of Flagg, on 15th April 1805.
    [From Val Neal's transcript of the parish registers of All Saints, Bakewell]
  24. There were 2 Mary Mycocks buried within a few months of each other, so it is not possible to say which was Elizabeth's mother. The first burial entry from the Parish register of St John the Baptist's, Chelmorton reads:
    [1782, Apr] 24 Burd Mary Mycock      Flagg
    The second entry reads:
