Research Notes

LDS has a christening entry  that looks a good bet for Elizabeth -  31 Oct 1744, Wilton By Salisbury, Wiltshire, parents James and Mary. Given the proximity to Winterbourne Earls, it has to be an 80% chance at least.
From then on the trail in Wilton looks pretty good
Wilton is about 5 miles from  Winterbourne Earls
