Elizabeth Merriwick "The Grey Lady" portrait

Elizabeth Merriwick (fl.1930s) is best known and referred to as The Grey Lady and former owner of the Grey House. She is the great great grandmother of Cassie Nightingale, born Sue-Ellen Brock.

Cassie mentions, in conversation with Joseph, that her great-grandmother was called Laurel Merriwick. Presumably, she is Elizabeth's daughter[1], though whether she was born before or after Elizabeth ran off is unknown. S4E9 states that Elizabeth's mother was named Catherine.

According to the special Spellbound, a lady named Elizabeth lived approximately 150 years ago, and was once engaged to Cotton Perriwood until 1886. She is noted to be the mayor's daughter. Whether this is the same Elizabeth is uncertain.


  1. A conversation between Cassie and Joseph occurs in Episode 2.01 (41:54):
    • Joseph: "My great-grandfather, Henry, was engaged to your great grandmother."
    • Cassie: "Laurel Merriwick".
    Presumably, Laurel is the daughter of Elizabeth Merriwick.
