Elizabeth was the daughter of Edward and Elizabeth Ball Silcox and the wife of Matthew Axford. She was baptized at St. Lawrence Anglican Church 15 Feb 1818 Rode, Somerset, England. Her father was described as a Shearman.

Matthew and Elizabeth were married 7 Aug 1842 at St. James, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, England.

Matthew and Elizabeth's children were:

Hannah Maria Axford Gardiner 1842 1928
Henry Alfred Axford 1846 1917
Selina Axford Harvey Bush 1848 1921
Nora Axford Purnell 1853 1913
Lydia Axford Pickup 1856 1920

Sometime after her husband's death in 1866, Elizabeth and daughter Lydia immigrated to the United States. This would have to have been between the years of 1871 - 1875. Both Elizabeth and Lydia are in the UK Census for 1871. And Lydia applied for a marriage license in Connecticut in December of 1875. They moved to the area where Elizabeth's uncle John Silcox, and cousins Samuel Silcox and John Silcox were living. All of Matthew and Elizabeth's children ended up in the United States except for Ellen, who died in Trowbridge at the age of 3. Elizabeth died of old age on 12 Apr 1899 at her daughter Lydia's home in Manchester, Hartford, CT.
