ELIZABETH BAKER was the Grandaughter of William Pitman and Mary Raison of South Petherton, Somerset, England, and daughter of Joseph Baker and Betsey nee Pitman of South Petherton.
Elizabeth was registered Yeovil in the March quarter of 1841. Vol. 10. Elizabeth was 5 months old in the 1841 census which was taken in the night of 6th June 1841 which would mean Elizabeth was born about January, which ties in with the birth registration. I have no idea why Elizabeth has Carpenter as a middle name.
Elizabeth spent most of her childhood in Somerset. She and her mother then moved to Southwark, Surrey, England. Possibly for financial reasons.
Elizabeth Baker lived with her mother, Betsey Baker at 1 Pond Yard, Southwark, Surrey, in 1861 (shown in census). Betsey, age 50, was a nurse born at South Petherton, and Elizabeth, age 20, was a sewing machine hand, born at South Petherton.
