  1. Ellen Elizabeth Eastabrook married a William Barker in Chester-le-Street, Durham, in 1892, but there are no clues to William's age or origins. Unable to find the couple in 1901, William must have died in the past or following decade, as by 1911, E E (Ellen Elizabeth) Barker (64) Widow was living with her brother, Samuel Ebenezer Derry Eastabrook, in Stockwell, London. Ellen Elizabeth Barker died, aged 78, in 1925 J Quarter in CARDIFF Volume 11A Page 454.
