The couple eloped to Scotland in 1763 where they had a civil marriage. His father refused to accept this, and a religious marriage ceremony was held on 21 February 1764.

The Edgeworth family home was at Hare Hatch, between Reading and Maidenhead. The Elers family home was at Black Bourton, Oxfordshire.

Anna gave birth to her daughter Anna, her fifth child, in the home of some of her sisters at Russell Street, London.
She died soon after, but the location of her death, and the place of burial is unknown.
