About Elizabeth Lathom (Legh)

During her long widowhood, Elizabeth the wife, occupied Allerton Hall. and by her Will and Codicil. both executed in July, 1624, gave her second son, Edward, the occupation and profit of “this my hall in Allerton," and the houses and lands for three years after her death for the better discharging of her debts and to keep her other sons, Richard and John, “with dyet." and until her grandson, Richard, then an infant of about two years and, the heir of Parbold and Allerton, came of age. She also forgives her cousins,- whoever these may have been-Richard and Edward Lathom of Wrightington, their debts. Of her eldest son, Thomas, she makes no mention, nor does she speak of any son called Peter or William, or of any daughters, but then daughters are usually ignored, (Stewart Brown.)
