  • Notes 
    • Absolutely nothing is known of Elizabeth Ivyson. Despite the fact that there are several Ivyson, Iverson and Iveson families at Faversham I have not been able to ascertain the christening of our Elizabeth Ivyson with any certainty. From the land tax assessments for Faversham it appears that there was one primary Iveson family headed by "widow" Iveson from approximately 1746 onwards. At that time Widow Iveson was shown as landlord of certain property in the town and it is interesting to note that as of 1748 her tenant became one John Herman. John Herman remained in that same property through to 1762. Given that Elizabeth Ivyson married Matthew Herman it is tempting to entertain the idea that Elizabeth had been "widow" Iveson's daughter and Matthew had been John Herman's son, brother or nephew. However, it is equally interesting to note that no assessment, as either landlord or tenant, appears in Faversham for Matthew Herman and his wife, Elizabeth (nee Ivyson). Did this couple live with a relative or did they occupy property that was outside the bailiwick of town assessments, such as manorial property.

      Inasmuch as "widow" Iveson let her property out to rent, she occupied as tenant various properties around the town mostly on Court Street East and Abbey Street East from 1746 through 1762.

      The estimated birth year of Elizabeth has been drawn from the birth year of her last child being 1769. If Elizabeth continued to have children up until her time of reliable fertility ceased, then she would have been approximately 48 or 49 years old in 1769. Hence the calculation of her birth year being circa 1721.

      Although there is no direct evidence that this burial is of Elizabeth nee Ivyson, the lack of other Herman individuals in or around Faversham at that time would strongly suggest that it is so.
