    Gender Female 
    Occupation From 1864 to 1880  Blackawton, Devon, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    Post Mistress 
    • After being widowed (1871 census and noted as "keeper of Post Office" in her burial register entry).
      I suspect that in practice Elizabeth had been running the post office before William died, even though he was officially the post master. It seems to have been the norm to appoint / list the husband where a married couple were involved.
    Died 1 Nov 1880  Blackawton, Devon, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Died of "old age".
      Her death was registered by her daughter-in-law Emmeline (present at the death), wife of the registrar Henry Hambling!

    Notes 
    • I expect caring for her 3 orphaned grandchildren fell to Elizabeth when her son William died in 1862; initially her husband became guardian but he died 2 years later.

      Although minors they were aged about 13, 16 and 18 when orphaned so shouldn't have need much practical care, though having lost their parents and 6 siblings they may well have need emotional support. (Unusually for child deaths of the period, the children died mostly in their teens / early twenties rather than in infancy) Sadly two more were to predecease their grandmother - Caroline aged about 17, and Charles aged about 23, 2 years after he married.

  • Wills (transcripts)
    The will of James Hambling (c. 1762 - 1837)
    The will of Elizabeth's father in law, James Hambling

    The will of James Baker (c 1754 - 1837)
    The will of Elizabeth's father, James Baker
    In James' will his house, garden, orchard and appurtenances belonging to them was to go to Elizabeth and Grace equally after their mother's death.
    Other effects were to be split 3 ways, between Elizabeth, Grace and the children of their late sister, with just £10 which was to go to their brother and £5 to their half sister.
    Given that James' effects were listed as "under £300" they were presumably at least £200; assuming that they did not diminish by much during the 2 years by which James…
