Elizabeth Mary WIGMORE

Born in Reading in Berkshire in 1856. Her father Richard WIGMORE was a wheelwright/coach painter. Her mother Elizabeth BULLOCK died when she was young as her father remarried in 1873. It seems likely that Elizabeth was in service near Enborne when she met her husband Alexander CLARK. They married in Reading in 1877 and had four children born in Enborne, before emigrating to Tasmania where another six were born.

Her husband died in 1918 and Elizabeth lived until 1945. Her house at Glendevie housed the local Post Office, boarded the local teacher and church services were also held there.
