Elizabeth Babbage

Elizabeth Babbage (later Elizabeth Saturley) was the youngest of the six known children of John Babbage and his wife Ann Norman of Holcombe Rogus, Devon, England.

Elizabeth married John Saturley - a Woolcomber, later a Woolsorter - of Wellington, Somerset, England - a job he held for about 40 years. He was most likely employed by Fox Brothers & Co., a mill that continues to produce luxury cloth today.

Together they settled down to raise a family of eight children - six sons and two daughters (although their second daughter died in infancy).

Elizabeth appears to have pre-deceased her husband by about three years.
