Jane was not recorded with the family. She is instead to be found at the Bell Inn, Warwick Lane, Coventry staying with her grandmother Elizabeth Jephcott.

If she was living there then perhaps that is where she met her future husband, Richard as he was living in St Johns Street, a "stones throw" away!

Jane is living with her husband Richard, a silk weaver, and four children at Whitley Common, Coventry.
