Elizabeth married John Bell about 1723 in Lancaster County. Reverend John Bell was the rector of St. Mary's Whitechapel and Christ Church. He has been born and educated in England, coming to Virginia in 1711. He was about 36 years older than Elizabeth. Part of his dower for marrying Elizabeth included 2,700 acres of land in Prince William County. They had at least nine children.
John died in 1743 and left most of his lands for Elizabeth's use during her life. Elizabeth wrote her will on May 5th, 1749 and died before May 11th, 1750. On that date her will was proven in Lancaster County Court.
