My grateful thanks to Martin Atcherley for supplying the photograph at the foot of this page (from which the section below is taken), and for giving me permission to use it here.
Eliza Maria Winter was born on 5 February 1848 in St Martin in the Fields, Middlesex, and was baptised there on 27 February that year. She was the daughter of German immigrant Frederick Ludwig Winter, a tailor, and his wife Johanna (Weber), who lived at 7 Goodwin’s Court until the 1870s when the family moved to 2 Bentinck Street.
Eliza married William Baugh Atcherley at Portman Square in London on 6 November 1880. More information and a photo of William and Eliza can be found on the following page in the Pictures section of this website: William Baugh Atcherley and Eliza (Winter).
Eliza died in 1884 at the age of 36 and was buried with her mother. Her father and her brother joined her in the family plot in 1893 and 1902 respectively. The inscription on their gravestone reads:
