Lucretia Darby was also known as Luezsa Darby.2 Lucretia was born circa 1802. She was the daughter of George Darby and Elizabeth Aylott.1 Lucretia Darby was baptized at St. Andrew's Parish Church on Sunday, 22 August 1802 at Hertford . Her name recorded in the baptism was 'Luezsa'.2,1 St. Andrews was a church of Saxon origin, and was added to until the mid 18th century to accomodate a growing population. By this stage it had deteriorated to such a degree that it was torn down and a new church built in 1870.

Her mother died circa January 1821. She was about 19 when this happened.3 She was a witness at the wedding of Jerimiah Playl and Eliza Darby at St. Leonard's on Monday, 7 April 1828 at Shoreditch, London.4

She married John Warner, at St. Leonard's on Monday, 7 April 1828 at Shoreditch, London. Lucretia was married on the same day as her younger sister Eliza, and they, along with their father, were witnesses for each other. Witnesses to the wedding were George Darby and Letitia White.4

Lucretia died in November 1849.3 Her body was interred at St. Andrew's Parish Church on 10 November 1849 at Hertford. There may have been a service at Hertford Congregational Church six days prior.3
