Birth*16 September 1757Anzele was born on 16 September 1757 at Bradford Neck, Acc Co, VA. According to Rev. John W.A. Elliott's Ledger Book, she was in Bradford's Neck in 1758, some 3 years the junior of her husband. Her parents were Edmond Bradford and a Miss Andress, who were married in the early part of the 18th century..4,2 
Marriage*10 December 1781She married Rev. William Elliott, son of Thomas Elliott (mechanic) and Ann Wescott, on 10 December 1781 at Accomack Co, VA.5,6 
Married Name10 December 1781 As of 10 December 1781,her married name was Elliott. 
Anecdote1785 According to Rev. John W.A. Elliott's Ledger Book, Anzela proved to be a true help mate, a woman remarkable for intelligence, industry, and real worth. They soon commenced farming in Upshur's Neck, worked hard, and raised a family of children. Of their children more will be said. They proved to be a family respected in their community. Anzela Bradford was one among the best of women. I am unable to know or where to commence or how to describe the true virtues of that good woman. I think I could safely say that never was there guile from her lips. She was a woman of great natural intelligence, a Bible reader and practiced what it taught. I don't think she was ever heard to speak of any person only to their praise. She and her husband lived in peace and happiness for many years amid many trying scenes and deep afflictions. They raised a virtuous family of children and brought them up in the virtues and admonitions of the Lord. She commenced a religious life early under the ministration of a Baptist minister, Mr. Layfield, and by him was baptized by immersion and became a member of the Hollies Baptist church, held her relation at Hollies Meetinghouse being the first Baptist church in the county. She was a consistent Christian. She closely studied human nature, the human system, and the diseases incident, and many of the remedies found in the folios (fields?). Hence she was a doctoress. It was interesting to see her herbs prepared in their season, and placed away for use, also her botanic garden. Her various herbs raised and prepared for use also her apothecary in which she had prepared a remedy for all common diseases bottled up. The 25 years that I was acquainted with the family a doctor was never called in but once, and that was to perform a surgical operation. She was successful in doctor(ing) bone _____? and had many cases of that disease. Generally cured without losing a bone. Had cured some cancers(?) of a certain class, but bilious fevers, colic, ague, and fever and all such diseases she had the remedy and confidence in applying them successfully. Made a great many cures and was careful to apply the balm of the Gospel to their mortal diseases in this department she was the wonder of her age.2 
Death*7 September 1841Anzele died on 7 September 1841 at age 83.4 
Burial*Her body was interred at Bradford-Burton, Quinby, Acc Co, VA. Her tombstone shows her as Anzele Elliott, widow of William Elliott, 16 Sep 1757 - 7 Sep 1841..4 
Anecdote30 December 1850 On 30 Dec 1850 it was recorded that William Elliott, Rev. Soldier, was a resident of this county and died circa 23 Sep 1836 leaving a widow, Anxell Elliott; she died 7 Oct 1841 leaving one child, Anzell Wallace who still survives. William Elliott and Anzell married 10 Dec 1781.6 
Anecdote*28 April 1851 On 28 Apr 1851, Peter F. Browne, administrator of Anzele Elliott appeared in court & made the declaration, in order to obtain for the child of Anzele Elliott, the benefit of the provision made by the Act of Congress passed 4 Jul 1836. He declared that it appears by satisfactory evidence that Anzele Elliott was the widow of William Elliott, who was according to his declaration made in court on 1 Aug 1832, a private in the Militia Company of Capt. William Polk, which was attached to the Regiment Commanded by Col. Southy Simpson and that he was principally engaged in guarding and defending the exposed places on the sea and Bay side. It appears by the family record that she was married to William Elliott on 10 Dec 1781 and that her husband died on 23 Sep 1836 and that she has remained a widow ever since that period and to the day of her death.5 
Admin of estate*28 April 1851Administration of Anzele's estate was filed on 28 April 1851 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Peter F. Browne was named to settle the estate of Anzele Elliott. James W. Custis was security.7

Anecdote1845 According to Rev. John W.A. Elliott's Ledger Book, Anzele was remarkable from early childhood. She embraced religion in early life and lived it to her last moment, being 75 years old. First remarkable trait was her industry and her devotion to religion. She thirsted for religious books, her reading copiously and her retentive memory of what she read, her studious habits and informed mind made a concordance and a commentary on the Holy Scriptures. Very few theologians that had a better understanding of the Scriptures than her. You may compare with the distinguished women of past history, but few or any could exceed her in reading or in thinking. She comprehended all she read and was ready to give points - and authors in proof of her position. She was the standing record of her community. All she ever heard she retained: marriages, births, deaths, and all such records were recorded on the tablets of her thoughts to be read by the mind's eye when the facts were called for at any day. In her old age to ask her where she was fifty years ago on that day, and in a short time she would give the place and circumstances of that day. Her delight was in the law of the Lord, would make any sacrifice to attend to the service of the sanctuary. On returning home would keep a diary, noting the text and the points. Her peculiar thirst for religious society. She was never known to enter on the lively of the day of detailing the givens or hearing the common news of the day as other persons, but in company if the conversation was not instructing and of a religious cast she said nothing or engaged in some religious reading, asking to be excused for her silence or abstinence. She was never idle, her ideas was that idleness was the inroad to evil. In her domestic duties she performed them with a sense of duty. Her house hours for devotion and reading was also duly met and fulfilled. A volume might be written on the remarkable Christian character of this woman. Enough to say that all may know she tried to do her duty here. The last of her years was of severe trial and deep affliction, all which she endured with Christian candor and fortitude. Her opinion was not only to act, but to learn to suffer affliction under the severest trials of life. She often quoted St. Paul that our afflictions were but for a moment, would work our a far more and an eternal weight of glory. She possessed a spirit of missionary enterprise. Died finally in a family that was strange but treated her nobly and her last moments was tranquil and peace.7
