Eliza SCOTT-CHARNOCK (1830-1898)

Edna OTWELL-SIM > Mary CHARNOCK-OTWELL > Eliza SCOTT-CHARNOCK 

Elizabeth Scott, known as Eliza, was born in 1830 in England.  Her parents were Joseph and Mary Scott.  We do not know Mary's maiden name.

At the age of one, Eliza Scott arrived in New York from London, England on December 13, 1831.  Her parents and their seven children aged thirteen to one arrived on the ship "Florida".

On the 1850 US Census, Eliza was 20 years old and lived in Lockport, NY with the Scott family.  Some time after 1855 she married Robert Charnock.  We next find her in London, Ontario, Canada on the 1871 Canadian Census at the age of 41.  She was listed as a dressmaker.  She was also listed on the 1891 census still living in London, Ontario.  She was a widow.

We found six children for Elizabeth and Robert Charnock.  They were William Henry, Alice, Lillian, John, Emma and Mary Jane (Edna's mother).

Eliza Scott-Charnock died on March 25, 1898 in London, Ontario, Canada.  She was 67-years old.  She lived at 572 Maitland Street, London, Ontario.  She was a Methodist.  Eliza was in the hospital for eight days before she died from apoplexy, an old term for unconsciousness or incapacity resulting from cerebral hemorrhage or stroke.
