Biography

Name

His descendants spell the name Janes, but according to Savage he always had e before the a.[1] According to Dr. Reba Neighbors Collins, "In some instances, our William signed his name JEANES and other times JANES. It was pronounced the same way, the "a" as in "lane" or "cane."[2]

Tim, can you add something to the bio about his origins, citing the 1975 work.

The source for "Hewes" is Middlesex, England, Extracted Parish Records [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 2001. The "Janes-Peek Family" book shows "Mary Unkown." Therefore, we should go with the Middlesex records for the time being.

I see nothing in the old literature indicating his origins, which Anderson Directory says are unknown. There is no new literature on his origins. His parents need to be disconnected. (Actually his mother is a duplicate of his wife.) Objections?

Similarly the first wife is Mary Unknown and needs to be changed from Hewes to Unknown. Objections?
