The prop is a throwback to the 1870's when it was commonly used particularly for photos of women.
Not used much in the 1880's. I think the photographer could have done with a studio makeover.

I have tried EVERYTHING!!!!!  She does not want to be found.  A newspaper report of 1883 says her sister called her Lizzie.  Tried that too. And every spelling variation of Crossley I can come up with.

Hi Claire,
She was a lovely looking woman.
I'm curious about you not finding her and would like to put my tuppence worth in to try and help.

Is Crossley her married name? Where was she born?

If you want me to go away, just say so, I wont be offended. I'm a sticky nose for family history and like to help everyone. :>)

Cheers,
Di

how kind of you!  She was born in 1851 at Hollow Meadows WRY daughter of Charles Crossley and Mary Poynton.  She had at least 4 illegitimate children (I posted yesterday on a separate thread in the Common Room about them, entitled Total Confusion! https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=807226.0

I found her in 1871 in Dukinfield as a servant.  Elizabeth had four illegitimate children – Mary (also known by the names Mary Alice, Mary Florence and Florence Mary) in 1874, Ernest in 1876, Wright in 1879 and Thomas Marsh Crossley in 1886 (my great grandfather).  The first two children were brought up by Elizabeth’s parents, Wright died when he was one year old, and Thomas Marsh was brought up by the Marsh family.  In 1883 Elizabeth and her sister Louisa were mentioned in the newspapers, in trouble for concealing the birth of Louisa's child.  And that's it!!  Nothing on the census from 1871.  She died in 1929.  Is on the electoral register at 16 Haywoods Park, Deepcar, WRY from 1929 (I think she went to her family, to die) til 1934 even though she'd died - I have the death certificate. 

She was known to the family as Lizzie.  My nan (her grandaughter) said she never married.  She's definitely showing off a ring though!  I got the impression that my nan, born 1913, never met her but I could be wrong. 

If you can find anything I will be VERY impressed!  I like a challenge and I am quite good at it usually, but have failed miserably here!!!

Hi Claire,

Well, I have had fun and frustration in looking up Elizabeth and her elusive family.

I hope that the attached document gives you some new information (probably not) but you never know. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, thanks for giving me the opportunity to be a sticky nose again.

Cheers,
Di Maloney
