Arndell, Elizabeth (Betsy) (1794–1890)

Elizabeth Dring had a number of relationships.

Around 1809 she began a relationship with Thomas Collins, which produced two children, Celia and William Collins.  In 1811 she began a relationship with Henry Treadaway which resulted in the birth of a son, William Treadaway. She then supposedly had two sons – Elias and Peter – with George Hibbs (there is no documentary evidence of this), and then a daughter – Ann - with Charles Walker.

She began cohabiting with Samuel Arndell in about 1814. They were married in 1847. (Samuel's surname is given as Arundell in the bdm index and Elizabeth's as Tring.)
