Elizabeth Penderwick is the mother of Rosalind, Skye, Jane, and Batty, and deceased wife of Martin Penderwick. She died shortly after Batty's birth, and thus is not present in any of the books.


Elizabeth Penderwick was the deceased mother of Rosalind, Skye, Jane, and Batty and the first wife of Martin Penderwick. She is said to have died of cancer after Batty's birth.


She is said to be stubborn and humorous, and it was once stated that she laughed very often. It is also said that she has Skye's personality, but in the fourth book it stated she has more of Jane's, always laughing. Batty inherited her love of music.


With blond hair and blue eyes (like her second oldest daughter, Skye), she is regarded by all of her daughters to be beautiful.

Batty Penderwick- Elizabeth wanted Batty to be named after her. After her husband, Martin, said that there can only be one Elizabeth Penderwick, she told him to call her Batty as a nickname.
