Elizabeth daughter of ? ELSON was buried 4 Jul 1706
« on: Wednesday 01 May 19 09:07 BST (UK) »
The attached clipping relates to the burial of Eleanor ELSON 4 Jul 1706 at Sutton Cheney, Leicestershire.

Does the text say "Eleanor ELSON daughter of widow ELSON buried 4 July...." or does it say Eleanor ELSON daughter of Wilson ELSON buried...." or maybe something else?

Having turned my screen's brightness to maximum, I'm confident that the entry says 'Widow'.
