Elizabeth Barnard1

b. 19 January 1706, d. 1773
Father*James Barnard1 b. 28 Sep 1683
Mother*Elizabeth Roby1
Research Notes*In our attempt to determine why Ebenezer Ellis was the assignee of Samuel Everett, a grandson and heir of John Hawes of Dedham in 1742, Ebenezer's wife Elizabeth Barnard became a focus of our attention. We wondered if identifying her family could help us answer the question. From the vital record of their marriage in Dedham, we had learned that Ebenezer and Elizabeth were both residents of Dedham at that time. We also learned that very few Barnards were recorded in Dedham's vital records between 1650 and 1750. After researching several Massachusetts Barnard families, two Elizabeths emerged as potential candidates for Ebenezer's correct wife: Elizabeth Barnard of Boston and Elizabeth Barnard of Watertown. While we're not yet absolutely certain we've identified the right one, we've selected Elizabeth Barnard of Boston as the better choice for three reasons. Her uncle Matthew Barnard of Boston married into an established Dedham family when he married Deborah Fales in 1721 in Dedham, five years before Elizabeth's marriage to Ebenezer; no association with Dedham was found for the Watertown Barnard family; and one source actually identified, although with no supporting documentation, Elizabeth Barnard of Boston as Ebenezer's wife.2,3,4,5,6,7
Birth*19 January 1706Elizabeth Barnard was born on 19 January 1706 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).8
Baptism19 January 1706Elizabeth Barnard was baptized the same day on 19 January 1706 at Second Church, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1
Marriage19 January 1725/26She married Ebenezer Ellis, son of John Ellice and Elizabeth Fisher, on 19 January 1725/26 in Dedham, Suffolk County.9,10,7
Death*1773She may have been the Elizabeth Ellis who died of "ms." in Dedham in 1773. Her death was recorded at Dover and, if "our" Elizabeth, she would have been about 71 years of age.11
