In the St Catherine's index Elizabeth is recorded as dying in the March quarter of 1870 age 67 at Melksham

Jane was baptised at  Lacock P.C. on 05/08/1838

Eliza... We were originally unsure about the census entry for 1861.  However we have since found an entry in the 1871 census for Shipton Moyne in Gloucestershire for an Eliza Weston aged 18 (not 16 as transcribed) born Melksham.  She is shown as a sister to Mary A Oram aged 37 born Lacock.  Mary in the 1841 census, christened Marianne in 1829 is shown as Mary Anne Weston who marries William Oram in Q3/1843 in Melksham RD.  This therefore seems to confirm the 1861 census entry.
