Primary events

  • Christening: Elizabeth Chapman was christened on 18 February 1776 in St Wandregesilius' Church, Bixley, Norfolk, England.1
  • Marriage: She married William Culling, son of James Culling and Elizabeth Muskett, on Tuesday, 22 September 1795 in Bixley, England, when they were 19 years, 7 months and 4 days ~&~ 20 years, 8 months and 21 days old. By License witnessed by Susannah and Elizabeth CHAPMAN, F WRIGHT and Mary CULLING. Elizabeth's father is most likely John, as this is the person who signed the Licence.2,3
  • (Witness) Marriage: She witnessed the marriage of Mary Ann Lash and Charles Culling on 30 August 1819 in St Nicholas' Church, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England; Both were literate. Witnessed by J McDONALD and Elizabeth CULLING. Third witness was 'unreadable' and signed the register.4
  • (Widow) Death: In 1832, at the age of 56 years, 8 months and 18 days, Elizabeth was left a widow by the death of William Culling; William is listed in the 1830 directory as a carrier, and his wife is listed in 1836. The address both times is Charlotte Street. There is a will that confirms this death date.

Secondary circumstances

Anecdote - Musings and Reasonings

Research note (complicated): Elizabeth CULLING (person #45089) married William WHEELHOUSE in Great Yarmouth October 28th 1859 by licence. Despite being named as a spinster on the certificate, I was able to confirm the marriage from the probate details of Elizabeth WHEELHOUSE whose niece and nephew were Walter CULLING of Caister St Edmunds and Mary Ann DOWE, wife of Robert DOWE of the same place. She died 6th May 1884 in South Heigham. This of course gives us a problem with her birth date and place, which is yet to be resolved. Could this marriage be her daughter Elizabeth, but if so, how come she was married as CULLING spinster?.
