|Place of death:|
Eliza Evans was born about the year 1821 and was for many years a confirmed invalid, living within the compass of North Somerset Monthly Meeting, and being much dependent upon the care and attention of Charles, her brother.
"A kindly and sympathetic word or message to those in trouble, a loan of books and the wide distribution of interesting and instructive publications, were some of the ministries which emanated from the invalid couch. Both brother and sister shared in such service, and were emphatically kind and liberal to the poor, - generous also in their contributions to many religious and philanthropic objects."
