(Elizabeth Douglas b.1873 d.1928)
Elizabeth Douglas was the daughter of John and Elizabeth Douglas,
who was my maternal great-grandmother.
She was born in Glasgow, Scotland on the 16 May 1873 and was one of three sisters who came with their father to Liverpool from Scotland.
It is believed that she had met my Norwegian great-grandfather while living in Glasgow.
Peder Gerhard Ingebretsen, (...his Anglicised name Peter Gerard Englebretsen), worked as a mariner on ships which carried goods into and out of the ports of Britain. The exact circumstances of their meeting is not known, but it is believed that the couple met and started a relationship while Peder was on shore leave from the ship.
Elizabeth's mother passed away, and her father brought the family to Liverpool.
On 1 November 1890 Elizabeth and Peder were married in Holy Trinity Church, Toxteth, Liverpool. The couple went on to have at least eight children. Three daughters survived - Hannah, Elizabeth and Martha.
Elizabeth Douglas died in Sefton General Hospital, Liverpool in 1928.
She died of mitral stenosis - a valvular defect in her heart which led to heart failure.
