I would lean toward the 1525 because her husband was born about 1520 and her daughter was born before 1550 according to the WikiTree profile. Jane died in Oct. 1575.

Not to mention that she died in 1575.  But that little discrepancy is not the only problem.  The profile is unsourced.

My thoughts also,.....
it does have a source listed in the comments
You're right, but who is responsible for moving the source into the body of the profile?  Does every viewer have to make sure and look at the comments?  There is a PM...
I'm new at this,.....What 'comments'? I can't seem to find what you are referring to,..regards, Allyn
Scroll down and look at the gray boxes on the right-hand side of the page.
i moved the comment about sources to sources and changed the biolography to match the dates
So how do I get to read it?,...As I said before I'm just learning my way here,...


to check the source you would have to read that entry in Richardon's books, you could try your library, I am not an American or have any gate way ancestors, so my intrest in his books are low, the books are expensive, but someone on wikitree might have a copy. you could ask in gtg if anyone could do a look up for you.

Oh, OK,..... just thought a source was also meant to include the information it was qualifying.,.....Regards, Allyn

All we have is now on the profile.

Apparently the key source is an article by Gary Boyd Roberts abt 1986-7 on the Royal ancestry of Edmund Hawes and Thomas Bressey, in ''The Genealogist'' #7-8 (the American one, but not ''The American Genealogist'').  Haven't seen it.
