Elizabeth Vickers bapt 1846 Kettering Northampton

I am looking for information on Elizabeth Vickers bapt. 16 August 1846 St Peters and St Paul Kettering Northampton. Her father, Robert Vickers married Ruth Coleman 8th May 1826 Kettering.

I am trying to trace to origin of an Elizabeth Vickers (not the Hallington/Louth Elizabeth) who arrived in Christchurch NZ about 1865/6. First child born NZ June 1866. She was wife/partner of George Scott. Her death certificate states born Northampton and her death age means born about 1845. No record of marriage in NZ but death cert. says married in NZ. Used the name Ruth for one of her daughters.

A link seems possible but that is all the information I have.

I wonder if she started off as Elizabeth Colson. There are other Elizabeth Colson's in the area but different names for parents and they too can be found in 1851.
EDIT age incorrect for dob below.

Richard was a Cabinet Maker born Northamptonshire. Ruth was born Leicestershire.

Thank you for the data. Very interesting. Elizabeth Vicars age 2 in 1841 Census. I see a birth date 21st Nov. 1838. My NZ Elizabeth Vickers named her children -

Mary Ruth
Sarah
Eliza
George

Same names appear in family 1841 census.

According to her death Cert. she should have been born about 1845, however, this may not be accurate. Born Nov. 1838 would make her about 27 when first child born and 36 when last of 6 children born. Not a problem there.

Elizabeth Vickers born Kettering 1838, daughter of Robert & Ruth is a definite possibility. More research needed.

Thank you for assistance

I have been told that Elizabeth Vickers comes up in the 1861 Census as "Viners" and Elizabeth, still at home in Kettering. Nothing in census on three sites that I have since checked.

Can anyone locate her in 1861 Census under Elizabeth Viners ?.

Thanks

Father Robert in 1861 census is a carpenter, don't know if that helps!

Thank you. That is the information I was trying to find. The correct name is Vickers not Viners. Obviously bad writing or transcribed incorrectly.
