Henry Elliott was born circa 1811 in Newbury. His parents were probably Charles and Ann, nee Trendall, Elliott. Henry married Jane West on 30 January 1838 at St Maurice in Winchester. Jane was born circa 1817 in Longparish in Hampshire (according to the 1851 census), although no baptism record has been found in Longparish.


In the 1841 census Henry and Jane were living with son Frederick aged 2 in Northbrook Street in Newbury. Henry was recorded as a painter.


Ten years later in the 1851 census Henry & Jane were still living in Northbrook Street with children Frederick aged 11, Louisa aged 6, Henry aged 3 & Edward aged 9 months. Henry was recorded as a painter. Another daughter Emma aged 8 was recorded with her uncle and aunt Cable & Caroline West in Alverstoke.


Henry died 12 December 1855 aged 44 at Parker Buildings in Northbrook Street and was buried at Newtown Road Cemetery on 18 December 1855. Jane died just a week later on 25 December 1855 at Parker Buildings and was buried 31 December 1855 at Newtown Road Cemetery.


Henry and Jane’s son Frederick Elliott and his first wife Ann were also buried at Newtown Road Cemetery on 22 December 1902 and 30 January 1861 respectively.
