Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1586

Death: Jan., 1654
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA

She was married to Thomas Gilbert in Yardley, co. Worcester, England on Aug. 29, 1610. Her parents are unknown at this time but could be related to an Edmond "Benettes" who married Alice Pretty in the adjacent parish of King's Norton, co. Worcester, England. No other Bennetts are listed in near by parish's. Her death is not sure but could be the wife that died in Wethersfield,Conn at the same time as Thomas did.(source:English parrish records)

There are some who believe Lydia (____) was married to Thomas the father and husband of this Elizabeth, I have to admit I did also until reading the records from the English parrish mentioned in "English Origin of Thomas Gilbert" & other web sites on him. I now am convinced that Lydia was married (2nd wife) to their son Thomas who is #1 above..
