Elizabeth Wilson was born in Porirua, Wellington, on 2 August 1893 (reg. 1893/16840). Her parents were Henry Allan and Elizabeth Ellen Wilson (nee Cutten) who married in Blenheim on 12 September 1892. Henry was a gas-fitter from Manchester, England.

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, John and Sarah Ann Crawford (nee Birkett).

Elizabeth was aged 16 when she gave birth to Eileen in Thompson Street, Wellington. Thompson Street and Webb Street [where Edward James Crawford's maternal grandparents, the Birkett's lived] are just around the corner from one another. It is more than likely that Edward was holidaying with his grandparents in Wellington when Eileen was conceived.

Further information on Elizabeth past 1910 is yet to be uncovered.
