Elizabeth Ellen Cutten was born in Whanganui in c1871. Her parents were Jarvis William and Elizabeth Ann Cutten (nee Bower). Jarvis William Cutten was a butcher. It is not yet known when Jarvis and Elizabeth arrived in New Zealand, or when they died. The name Jarvis is from Elizabeth's marriage certificate and is hard to decipher, so is possibly incorrect.

She married Henry Allan Wilson on 12 September 1892 (reg. 1892/1735) at his residence in Blenheim. Henry was a gas-fitter from Manchester, England. His parents were William Allan and Margaret Ellen Wilson (nee Hill). William Allan Wilson worked as a Workhouseman. At the time of their marriage, Elizabeth was aged 22 and Henry was aged 36. The usual address for both was Blenheim.

Elizabeth and Henry had at least three children together:

  1. Elizabeth Wilson (1893-?). Born in Porirua, Wellington, on 2 August 1893 (folio: 1893/3786). In Wellington on 13 February 1910 (reg. 1910/11647) Elizabeth gave birth to Eileen Pearl Wilson (1910-1945) whose father was Edward James Crawford (1887-1944). Eileen was brought up in Katikati by Edward's parents. Further information on Elizabeth past this point is yet to be uncovered. 
  2. Harry Edwin Wilson (1895-?). Born 24 October 1895 (reg. 1895/11773).
  3. George Henry Allan Wilson (1898-1945). Born 9 January 1898 (reg. 1898/18525). He married Doris Ellen Aroa (1902-1989) on 26 June 1926 (reg. 1926/4542). She was the daughter of Frank and Alice Annie Aroa (nee Stockley). George died, aged 47, on 9 March 1945 (reg. 1945/28359).

Elizabeth died on 8 August 1940 (reg. 1940/16138).

A death date for Henry Allan Wilson is yet to be established.
