Biography

Some family trees cite January 14, 1790 as Jane's date of birth, but this is not proved. What is known is that she was christened on Feb 14 1790 in the St. Mary's parish church in Ulverston.[1] She married Thomas Scott at the same St. Mary's on July 12, 1812.[2] After their marriage, they moved to the hamlet of Colthouse just outside of Hawkshead.

Jane and Thomas had nine children, all of them baptized at St. Michael's, Hawkshead. They all would also likely have attended the local school, Hawkshead Grammar, on at least a part time basis. Although this area would be termed something of a backwater, they appear to have been keen on education. One historian that visited the county in 1754 commented that it was not uncommon to come across a shepherd that was conversant in Latin and Greek. A generation before the Scott children, William Wordsworth had attended Hawkshead Grammar. Colt House, where the Scott family lived, was also the residence of Ann Tyson, who was William Wordsworth's landlady when he was at school.[3]

Jane arrived in New York on board the "George Washington" out of Liverpool on the 15th of June 1833. Eight of her nine children were with her.[4] (Joseph remained in England for a time.) I can't find a record for her husband's passage, so I wonder if he came on ahead to start the farm and prepare a house for her arrival with the children.
