(30 April 2016)
Eliza was the illegitimate daughter of Mary, born in 1838 at (is believed) Oakham. Her mother married George Harris in 1839, but then died in 1841. George almost immediately married again, so that from the age of 2, Eliza was reared by her step-father and his 2nd wife. At the 1841 Census Eliza "Harris" was shown as “not born in Northants”, implying she was born in Rutland. At the 1851 Census George showed his step-daughter Eliza "Harris" as born at Oakham, Rutland. This information is presumed to have been correct, though it is unlikely that Eliza herself was ever told this. At the 1861 Census Eliza "Harris" was a servant with a family at Seaton, and she said she was born at Harringworth (which would have been the only place she knew from her childhood). So she was never shown in a Census as Eliza "Stubbs". In later Censuses, when she was Eliza "Smith", she usually stated she was born at Harringworth. However in 1911 she then stated Barrowden, suggesting she had perhaps obtained a birth certificate to support her claim for an Old Age Pension (Act introduced 1908). If so, the certificate she obtained was for her first-cousin, Eliza Stubbs, who was born at Barrowden. Eliza may not have realised this was an error.
Eliza in her turn had an illegitimate child before she married, the father of whom was George Goodman, an agricultural labourer of Rockingham who never subsequently married. The child, whilst registered as George Goodman Stubbs, but was always referred to as George Smith. After they were married, Thomas and Eliza had two children, whilst living in Rutland. These three children in total were:
George Goodman (born at Uppingham Workhouse, 9th April 1864), married Clara Duxbury;
[SMTH682] Mary Ann (born at Caldecott, 13th January 1869, baptised there 3rd October 1869), married [SHEP681] James Shepherd;
John Thomas (born at Caldecott, 1871, baptised there 2nd June 1872), married Isabella Adams.
The family moved from Caldecott to Yorkshire (c.1872-73), and for subsequent history see SMITH of the West Riding of Yorkshire.
