Thanks Peter.

I've looked for a marriage and a death assuming it's not Eliza but no matches in index.

The other half.

Could be Eliza gibbo but not the usual 'z' so we need to see if other marriages by Richard Hill are similar.

If it is an 'r' then not like others on the page.

I come back to Elvia.

I'm planning to visit the library on Tuesday so I will check other nearby images.

It has to be Eliza.

Examples from nearby pages showing the 'z' in Elizabeth and the 'r' in several words.
