This now-faded sampler, with its solidly worked black background, is typical of a group of Norwich samplers dating from the 1760s through the 1790s. Elizabeth Lord (1757-1805) was the daughter of Eleazar Lord, Jr. (1729-1809) and Elizabeth Lord (1729-1803) of Norwich. On September 5, 1780, she married Asa Lothrop (1755-1835), and they had six children.
Elisabeth's father Eleazar Lord kept a tavern in Norwich that was frequented by lawyers attending the nearby courthouse. Her parents were cousins. (Additional information provided by Carol and Stephen Huber).
