Elizabeth Biddulph [1799-1893] grave, Deansgrange, County Dublin






Sacred to the Memory of Elizabeth Biddulph eldest daughter of Francis Harrison Biddulph, Esq., of Rathrobbin, King's Co., late Registrar of the Court of Equity Exchequer in Ireland. She died the 10th of June 1893 aged 95 years. In sure and certain hope trusting only in the Saviour's merits.
Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord [illegible].
Grave at 12-I2-South in Deansgrange Cemetery, Deansgrange, County Dublin.


Elizabeth was the second daughter of Francis Harrison Biddulph Francis Harrison Biddulph [1774-1827]  of Vicarstown, Registrar of the Court of Exchequer and his wife Mary Marsh, and not the eldest as inscribed on her gravestone. Her older sister, Anne, was born in 1798, but died more than twenty years before her, which may go some way toward explaining  the error.
