Jane was probably born around 1720. She was the daughter of William Aylett and his wife Ann (sources differ as to whether she was born Anne Woodward or Anne Taylor/Tayloe). She passed away in 1789.

Jane Buckner wrote a will (dated 1787) and probated in Orange County, Virginia in 1789.[1] The family moved from Caroline County to King William Co. and thence to Orange Co. VA around 1751.

G.H.S. King indicated that she first married Christopher Robinson in 1740. He died not long after in 1742, and she remarried to Phillip Buckner after renouncing Robinsons' will.[2] Her last known child was probably born around 1761 or 1762, based on Phillip Buckner's will, so it's not likely she was born much before 1715 or much after 1725. She was then probably at least a decade younger than Phillip, which would be consistent with the fact that she survived him by 27 years.

Crozier showed that she was the daughter of Col. William Aylett of King William County based on the fact that she inherited some property as the sister of William's son John Aylett of King William.[3] The regular appearance of the given name Aylett among her descendants corroborates this.
