#105
4th great grandmother of Kristina Hewitt, Brandon Gilby, Tiffany Hewitt and Sandra Foster

Elizabeth Ann Adams was also known as Eliza Ann Adams.

Eliza Ann Adams was the daughter of Thomas Adams and Elizabeth Shack.

Eliza Ann Adams married John Hawkesford 18 Apr 1835 in England.

Eliza Ann Adams married Lewis Anthony Joseph Napoleon Peverelle 30 Apr 1839 in Saint Thomas, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England.

In the 1841 Census of England, Eliza is living with her husband Lewis, and a 14 year old boy Carlos Peverelle, and a servant.   I suspect Carlos was a nephew to Lewis, son of his brother Paul.  He is listed as foreign born and this would make sense as the nephew Carlos was born in Italy.  The children of Lewis by his first wife and the son of Eliza by her first husband are not in the home, likely away in school is my guess although Eliza's son would have been only 4 years old.  

In the 1851 Census of England, Eliza is living with her husband Lewis and various other relatives at 27 and 28 Edgbaston St., Birmingham, England.

In the 1861 Census of England, Eliza is living with her husband Lewis and various other family members at Edgbaston, Birmingham, England

In the 1871 Census of England, Eliza is living at 52 Pershore Road with her husband Lewis, their unmarried daughter Isabelle, and their grandson Lewis H Peverelle Jr..  The grandson is listed as age 5.  I'm not sure why he is listed as age 5 because he would have been 8.  It seems likely he was living there because his mother had died in Jan 1870, and his father hadn't yet remarried. He would remarry 19 April 1871, the census was taken 2 Apr 1871. 

Eliza Ann Adams died in 1880 in King's Norton, Worcestershire, England.
