Does the project accept that Eleanor West was the mother of Jane Guildford?

+9 votes

Jane Guildford is project protected so I cannot attach her to her mother. The relationship is given in David Loades, ‘Dudley, John, duke of Northumberland (1504–1553)’, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004; online edn, Oct 2008 [, accessed 22 Oct 2017]

I can't speak for the project, but found this:

Lady Jane Guilford Dudley

Birth: 1509
Kent, EnglandDeath: Jan. 15, 1555
Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
Greater London, England
Duchess of Northumberland

Daughter of Sir Edward Guilford of Rolvenden and Halden, Kent, and Lady Eleanor West. Paternal granddaughter of Sir Richard Guilford, KG, and Anne de Pympe. Maternal granddaughter of Thomas West, 8th Baron de la Warr, and Elizabeth Mortimer.

She was the wife of John Dudley, 1st Duke of Northumberland, with whom she was married in 1525.

Together they had thirteen children, including:
John Dudley, 2nd Earl of Warwick
Ambrose Dudley, 3rd Earl of Warwick
Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester
Guilford Dudley, husband of Lady Jane Grey
Katherine Dudley Hastings, Countess of Huntingdon

Jane served as a Lady-in-Waiting to both Anne Boleyn and Anne of Cleves. She became Viscountess Lisle in 1542 when her husband was raised to that peerage, and as such was in the marriage procession of Henry VIII's last queen Catherine Parr at their wedding.

She became Countess of Warwick in the reign of Edward VI, and Duchess of Northumberland in October 1551.

When her husband and sons were arrested by Mary I on charges of treason, she did all in her power to save them from execution. She was unsuccessful in the case of her husband and son Guilford Dudley, but her other sons were released in 1554. Her eldest son, John Dudley, died in Kent soon after his release.

Jane was allowed to live in her Chelsea home following the fall of her family, which is where she died. Her monument lies at the east end of More's Chapel in Chelsea Old Church.

There are two profiles for her parents.  I've proposed a merge for her fathers profiles, that should fix adding Eleanor West as the mother of Jane. If not then once the two profiles for Eleanor are merged.

Actually I think there might be two profiles for Jane as well, so this could be an extended process.

The Dudleys are a sad mess here as they were in life. Trying to sort them.
