Biography

Elizabeth Beatrice Underwood was born at Pancras, London, in 1886.

Her parents were Orlando Underwood, born at Bristol, Gloucestershire in 1856 and Emma Jane Lusty, born at Dursley, Gloucestershire in 1858, who married at Dursley in 1881.

Her paternal grand-parents were George William Underwood born at Atworth, Wiltshire in 1819 and Matilda Curtis born at Bath, Somerset in 1831, who married at Dursley, Gloucestershire in 1851.

She married Max W Butlin at Pancras, London in 1911 and they had two children:

  1. Beatrice Maxine Betty Butlin born at Hendon in 1912
  2. Daphne Inez Mary Butlin born at Hendon in 1916.

In the 1901 UK Census she is described as a 14 year old photographers assistant.

In the 1911 UK Census she is described as a 25 year old black and white artist. This probably refers to the custom of hand colouring black and white photographs.This was common at this time (and in the UK until about 1950) with artists being well paid to enhanced ordinary black and white photographs thus enabling the photographer to charge more for them.

Elizabeth Beatrice Underwood appears to have sometimes preferred to use her second name rather than her first name. Elizabeth in 1891 census, Beatrice in 1901 and 1911 census, and Elizabeth at 1916 marriage.

She died in 1956 at Edmonton, London.
