Eliza Thackeray

This is my great grandmother, Eliza. She was born in 1851 in Leeds, Yorkshire, one of six children.

The 1861 and 1871 census have her resident in Headingley, Yorkshire.

I have an old book of birthdays and important dates called The Golden Text Book which bears the following writing on the inside cover,

"Alfred Lockwood, Practical Pianoforte Tuner, &C., 29 Albert Terrace, Burley Leeds."

The next page  reads,

"Miss Thackrah, January 1880".

The next cover reads,

"Miss Thackray, A present from her lover, Alfred. January 1880."

She married Alfred Lockwood in 1884 in Leeds. Her residence remained Headingley throughout the 1891 and 1901 census but in the 1911 census, that changed to Kirkstall. However, it is the same street address so I assume that the district name or boundaries changed.

She died in 1911, age 60 years old.
