After asking my Grandma, Dorothy Innerd, to write down her memories of her Grandmother, Eliza King (née Agar/Twiddy). I decided to find exactly where Eliza was buried in St. Giles Church, Durham, and place a memorial plaque there for her.
Eliza King was an inmate at Holloway Prison in London, 1943. She was sentenced to five years for manslaughter, as she carried out backstreet abortions.
Eliza was one of fifteen children, it is said that her mother was so sick of giving birth she would sit, half naked in cold alleyways, hoping to die. It is also said that Eliza posed as a fortune teller. My Grandma remembers that women would come to Eliza’s house asking for their fortunes to be told, when this happened my Grandma would have to leave Eliza’s house, she believes this was how women would come to Eliza asking for help with their pregnancy.
If you are pregnant and considering an abortion you can find advice here.
