Elizabeth Evans (née Matthews) moved to Badsey in 1890 when her husband, Edward, bought The Laurels on the High Street. Elizabeth was born at Broadway in 1842 and married Edward Evans in 1865. The couple had five sons and two daughters. Elizabeth was widowed in 1892. She remained living in Badsey until her death in 1912.
We are grateful to Elizabeth Evans’ great-granddaughter, Jean Matson, for allowing us to publish these photos.
