Elizabeth Seymour, dau. of John Seymour, Jr. and Elizabeth Webster (Robert,2 Gov. John,1), b. May 1, 1700 at Hartford, Conn. per the land records of Hartford (manuscript of the late 1800s eminent Middletown, Conn. town clerk and genealogist Frank Farnsworth Starr), but actually b. May 1, 1701 as verified by the timing of her baptism (May 9, 1701) at the Hartford 2nd Ch. [2nd Chh. Rec.] and her stated age at death in the Harwinton, Conn. vital records likely from her gravestone that now may not be extant, unless she is the faint inscription at the bottom of her husband's extant gravestone. She d. of record at Harwinton, Conn. May 23, 1761 "in the 61st year of her age." [Harwinton TR]

In the Genealogy of Gov. John Webster, Elizabeth is correctly identified in the sketch of her parents, but misidentified in the sketch of Elizabeth's husband, incorrectly stating that she was the dau. of Daniel Seymour and Mabel Bigelow, the former being her own brother.

On Sept. 25, 1729 at the Hartford 1st Ch., Elizabeth m. her 1st cousin Cyprian Webster, Esq., s. of Ens. William Webster (Robert,2, Gov. John,1) and Sarah Nichols (Capt. Cyprian,1), b. of record Sept. 3 (bp. Sept. 7), 1701 at Hartford, Conn. He d. Dec. 24, 1770 at Harwinton, Conn., Æ 70 (g.s.) They had four known children: Elizabeth (d.y.), Elizabeth (Webster) Hayden, Dea. Cyprian, and Timothy (d. unm.)

Per the Harwinton Vital Records:

• Elizabeth, w. Cyprian, d. May 23, 1761, in the 61st y. of her age. (LR1-7)

This record means that on the day Elizabeth died she was 60 years old, and "Ætatis suæ" (i.e., Æ, "Aged," in the XX year of her Age) 61. This indicates she was b. on or after May 24, 1700 and the recorded year of her birth is understated by one year complimented by her baptism of record on May 9, 1701. All ten of her siblings were baptized of record within one month, if not within 5 days, after their recorded birth.
