Elizabeth TOLLIT née PETTYFER (Sh5)
14 Feb 1886, St Katherine, Northampton NTH, by banns
Witnesses: Henry SHIPPERTON, Adelaide TOLLIT
(David a widower)

(Son of James MEAKINS & Ann)
Born: c1826, Hanslope BKM



Adelaide Ann TOLLIT married Charles Walter LEIGH in 1890 as a spinster, and is listed with him as his wife in the 1891 and 1901 censuses. However, in 1881 she is listed as Adelaide EMERTON wife of Joseph EMERTON, and in 1911 as Adelaide EVERTON wife for 9 years of Joseph EVERTON; both Josephs are given as born c1858 in Buckingham, so despite the slight difference in surname, it seems possible they were actually the same person. As yet I have been unable to find any evidence of Adelaide marrying anyone other than Charles Walter LEIGH, nor can I find a death for her under any likely variant of EMERTON, EVERTON, LEIGH or TOLLIT. I have also so far been unable to find anything certain on Charles Walter LEIGH after the 1901 census.

Variant spellings of the surname TOLLIT include TOLLET, TOLLETT, TOLLITT etc. The surname PETTYFER is sometimes spelt PETTIFER.
