Notes for Elizabeth Roberts
Auntie Liz worked in the pottery from about 1888 until the early part of the twentieth century, hand painting designs which included roses and fruit. Apart from a crude L as a means of identification her work was not marked but her painting was said to be as good as, and sometimes better than that of the great Samuel Sufflebotham. Latterly her sister Sarah's Jane's cockerels became so famous that they got all the attention. Like Sarah Jane she became ill during the last part of her life and was nursed by ner neice Annie Gwendoline Hawkins until her death in 1940.
