Fish  :-\

The first letter looks more like the F in Frederick than the P in Parke.  The downward stroke is crossed through

I only have Elizabeth  recorded as Liven in 1841 Gt Yarmouth census. Pike is worth a try though!
Thank you.

There's a Mary Ann Elizabeth Liven baptised 1840 but parents John and Susan.

Thinking if she had belonged to Elizabeth you could look up her birth and find the maiden name.

Interesting but that could be

Mary Ann Elizabeth Leaven Dec 1840 Great Yarmouth with mothers name Parker
Hinchliffe - Huddersfield Wiltshire
Burroughs - Arlingham Glos
Pick - Frocester Glos

Thanks for all suggestions.

No luck yet with John Liven snr and his wife E. Fiske/Pike/Fisher  or sister-in-law Parke.

There were 2 Mary Ann Elizabeths: one died very young , the other lived to a reasonable age, the child of Maria Goodswin, wife 2.

Must look up the Parkes for siblings
