Elizabeth Savory Eddy
Birth: 1606
Wiltshire, England
Death: May 24, 1689
Bristol County
Massachusetts, USA

Wife of Samuel Eddy. Mother of Zachariah, John, Elizabeth, Samuel, Ebenezer, Caleb, Joshua, and Obediah. Birth year about 1606-1607.

Twice Elizabeth Eddy was summoned to appear before the Court of Plymouth. It is recorded that on "Oct 7, 1651, Wee further present Elizabeth Eeddy, Sen'r of the towne of Plymouth for laboring, that is to say, for wringing and hanging out clothes on the Lord's day, in time of publicke Exercise." She was fined ten shillings, but his fine was remitted. (Court Orders, Vol. II, p.73)".

"Again on May 1, 1660, it is recorded that "Elizabeth Eddey was summoned to this court, and appeared, to make answare for her traveling on the Lord's day from Plymouth to Boston; and affeirmed that shee was nessesitated to goe on that day, in regard that Mistris Saffin was very weake and sent for her, with an earnest desire to see her, in her weakness with some other pleaes of like nature. The Court considering some cercomstances in her answare, although they saw not sufficient excuse for her act therein, saw cause to admonish her and soe shee was discharged of the Court". (Court Orders, Vol. III, p. 186)"
Excerpt from "The Eddy Family in America", 1930
Elizabeth Savory was the daughter of Thomas and Mary Woororke Savory. Marriage records say Savory.

Note: According to the 1881 250th reunion book of the Eddy family she was called to court for walking to Boston on the Sabbath and another time for doing the washing of clothes on Sunday. She did the work because someone had been sick. She was 82 yrs old when she died.

This is my direct ancestor which I have documented through Colonial Dames of the 17th Century.
