Gibbon, Elizabeth (nee Chadwick) (1839-1915)

Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by T. Kynaston

The Stretford Church lost a striking personality when, on Saturday, April 24th, Elizabeth Gibbon passed to her reward, at the age of seventy-six. On her marriage to Mr. Frank Gibbon she became a member of our Church, and has honoured that membership by fifty-two years of unbroken fellowship and consecrated service. Perhaps the outstanding feature of her work was her care for the sick. She was a true friend of the poor, and quick to respond to every appeal for sympathy and help.


Elizabeth was born abt1839 at Stretford, Lancashire, to parents Andrew Chadwick, who worked the land (1851), and Ellen Stanney.

Before her marriage Elizabeth worked as a general servant.

She married Francis (Frank) Gibbon (1840-1925), a wheelwright (1891), on 14 February 1863 at St John, Deansgate, Manchester, Lancashire. Census returns identify one child.

  • Ann (abt1877-1897)

Elizabeth died on 24 April 1915 at Stretford, Lancashire.
