George Elliott (1790 – 1865)

Mary Elliott (1792 – 1863)



George Elliott was born circa 1790 in Newbury, parents unknown.


George married Mary Mitchell on 1 March 1817 at St Mary (the Minster) in Reading. Mary was baptized on 21 August 1792 in Uppingham in Rutland, the daughter of John and Jane.


In the 1841 census George and Mary were living with daughter Eliza in Northbrook Street in Newbury and George was recorded as a cabinet maker.


Eliza married Francis Henry Adler in 1842 in Newbury. Francis was born circa 1815 in Newbury.


George and Mary were still living in Northcroft Street in the 1851 census along with a house servant Sarah Target aged 18. George was recorded as master cabinet maker and Mary as a straw bonnet maker.


Ten years later in the 1861 census George and Mary were residing at 2 Raymond’s New Almhouses in Newbury with George recorded as a late cabinet maker, so he was no longer working at the age of 71.

 Mary died in November 1863 and a service was held at St John the Evangelist. George died  a couple of years later in October 1865 and also had a service at St John’s. Both were buried at Newtown Road Cemetery.

Mary and George’s daughter and son in law were also buried at Newtown Road Cemetery, Francis Adler on 3 July 1879 and Eliza Adler on 30 December 1898.
