ELIZA ELLIS
It is with the deepest regret that we announce the death, on Friday afternoon, of Mrs. E. Ellis, Bartholomew Street, relict of the Rev. W. M. Ellis, rector of Ickford. The deceased lady was held in the highest esteem and respect by a numerous circle of friends and relations. Her loss will be severely felt by her poorer neighbours, to whom she was a constant visitor. Her charity knew no bounds: many a home has been made glad by her beneficence.
