Relationship Note* Neither Edward Heaton nor Beatrix (Heaton) Fairbarne named their widowed sister-in-law in their wills, and her husband's' own suggestion that if Elizabeth remarry she should "remove herself" from his property, may indicate that she was not popular with her in-laws or that her marriage portion was inadequate.3
Residence*8 December 1593She was living in Habrough as late as 8 December 1593 when the inventory of the estate of her daughter, Helen Stead, mentioned monies due Helen for her child's portion of land remaining in the hands of widow Heaton of Habrough. It had been five years since her husband's death and Elizabeth, probably now in her fifties, apparently, had not remarried.4
