Magnalia Christi Americana, a source cited by many about the life of Jane's husband, Peter Bulkeley, states that by Jane "he had nine sons and two daughters." However, both Richardson and Anderson name only nine children in total, all who were baptized at Odell, Bedfordshire:
Jane was buried on 8 December 1626 at Odell, Bedfordshire, England.
Reverend Peter Bulkeley was an early Puritan preacher who left England in 1635 on the Susan and Ellen for greater religious freedom in the Colony of Massachusetts. He was among the first settlers at Concord, Massachusetts and co-organized the first church there.

NOTE: Jane Allen, first wife of Gateway AncestorPeter Bulkeley, was not listed in the Colonial Immigrants index in Richardson's 2011 edition of Magna Carta Ancestry, but this was apparently an oversight, as her ancestry is documented in both Magna Carta Ancestry and Royal Ancestry, and she is listed in the latter's index of Colonial Immigrants. Richardson does not note where she died, but he includes other non-immigrating spouses in the Magna Carta Ancestry index as Gateway Ancestors.

"Although Magna Carta surety barons Mowbray, Richard and Gilbert de Clare, John de Lacy and Saher de Quincy are currently present in the tree view of Jane's ancestry, the only proven surety baron in her pedigree who is documented with evidence is Robert de Roos. Richardson does not show a connection for these other barons.
"All FIVE of the Sureties, William Mowbray, Richard and Gilbert de Clare, John de Lacy, and Saher de Quincy rely on the proven paternity of Christiana de Mowbray in order to be verified Ancestors of Jane Allen. Such proof is insufficient, thus far.
"Richardson had associated some of those Ancestors with Jane Allen in earlier editions of his Ancestry Series. But, the latest thinking is that there are too many "John Mowbrays" and not enough distinction to know whether the documentation connecting them to Christiana Mowbray is definitive for the relationship of brother/uncle/father. Richardson has since revised the Jane ALLEN Ancestry."
"The ONLY Magna Carta Surety listed as an Ancestor for Jane Allen in any of Richardson's books is Robert De Ros, (which follows the lineage for Edward BULKELEY, showing him as a true "Gateway Ancestor," in his own right, independent of the Royal lineage of his father, Rev. Peter Bulkeley, Sr."
