Elizabeth Horn Stanger was born at Rose Hill, Northumberland, the daughter of William Stanger (who was born at Knarsdale, NBL). William was a lead smelter who came to work at Keld Heads for Lord Bolton. He married Ann Horn, sister to the above Judith Spensley, nee Horn.

Elizabeth can be seen in Redmire in 1901 with her parents. Shortly after the 1901 census, on 14 April 1901, she married Matthew Waddell, who can be seen in 1901 in Castle Bolton as a farming student to Metcalfe Spensley. They subsequently moved to Kirkland Farm, in Lockerbie, Scotland. Matthew was one of the executors of Metcalfe Spensley's will, in which Elizabeth received a bequest of fifty pounds.
