About Elizabeth Rucker

The maiden name of Elizabeth, wife of Peter Rucker, is not known. Many people over the years have believed that she was a Fielding, with possible parents Edward Fielding and Elizabeth Polteney of Bristol, England.

Some alternately believe that she was a Coghill.

However, according to the Rucker Family Society's report, written by Jean Brydon:

The surname Fielding came from Whitley's book and she has since admitted she was mistaken and that Fielding was not Elizabeth's maiden name. There is no evidence of a Fielding living near the Ruckers in Essex Co. The family Coghill has been researched and no evidence exists of a female named Elizabeth Coghill. Frederick Coghill's wife's maiden name was Goss, but we can find no Elizabeth Goss.
