Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Elizabeth Spriggs was an English character actress. Born in Buxton as Elizabeth Jean Williams, Spriggs had an unhappy childhood and grew up entirely without affection, particularly from her distant, domineering father, a master builder and farmer.
