Elizabeth Creed was born around 1786, in Lynn, Norfolk, and was baptised at St Nicholas's chapel, Kings Lynn, on 29 December 1786.1

She married [D2] William Tunbridge on the 9th February 1821, in Frindsbury, Kent, where she then lived. The couple made their home in Chatham, Kent, where they had four children: William (cal 1814 1855), [D1] Angela Elizabeth (18211900), Amelia (1823 after 1851), and D'Arcey Daniel (cal 1825 after 1875).2

In 1841 she lived at the Brook, in Chatham, where the household included her younger daughter and son. In October 1847, when she informed the registrar of her granddaughter's birth, she was resident in Whittakers Street, Chatham. In 1851 she lived in Adelaide Street, Chatham, with a daughter and two grandchildren.3

She died on the 28th March 1859, in Henry Street, Chatham, from a year-long disease of the kidney, and sudden death after one hour, by syncope.4

Elizabeth Creed was the daughter of [D5] William and [D6] Susanna Creed.5

Suggestions for further research

No further progress can be made until a record of the birth or baptism of William Creed is found, or a will linking him to either or both of his parents.
