When Elisabeth Hansdatter was born in 1698, in Klemensker, Nørre, Bornholm, Denmark, her father, Hans Madsen, was 45 and her mother, Bendte Madsdatter, was 35. She married Hans Pedersen about 1730, in Klemensker, Bornholm, Denmark. They were the parents of at least 1 son. She died before 15 July 1741, in her hometown, and was buried in Klemensker, Nørre, Bornholm, Denmark.
The spelling of Elizabeth used in the Authorized Version of the New Testament, and in most modern European languages. This was the name of the mother of John the Baptist (Luke 1:60). Etymologically, the name means ‘God is my oath’, and is therefore identical with Elisheba, the name of the wife of Aaron according to the genealogy at Exodus 6:23. The final element seems to have been altered by association with Hebrew shabbāth ‘Sabbath’.
