In 1881 the Pack family are living in the Blacksmith’s Shop on Royston Road, Litlington. According to the Ancestry genealogy on this family, Abraham Burr Pack (1827-1901) married Elizabeth Phillips (1826-1902). Ten children are recorded (in the Johnson Family Tree). One of these is Elizabeth (1850-1927) who was born in Stotfold Beds and died in Bassingbourn. She married Walter C Wedd. The family history of their granddaughter, Doris Roisseter, paints a vivid account of family life at the end of the 19th century.
