Search of freereg.org turned up no parish records (searched North Petherton and "neaby locations", Soundex & relatives for Jane Popham and Jane Stradling, 1450 through 1600). ~ Liz Shifflett, 15 February 2018
Location of marriage had been St. Donat's, Somerset, England. Since no record of marriage found in freereg.org, I chose to go with St. Donat's (in Wales) as marriage location. ~ Liz Shifflett, 15 February 2018

In the chapel on the south side of the church is a magnificent tomb, surrounded with a pallisado of wood and iron, on the table of which lie the effigies of Sir John Popham and that of his lady. He is dressed in his judges robes.... On the west side of this canopy is the following inscription:

However, her mother appears to have several potential trails that could be developed to complet a trail from Gateway AncestorGeorge Popham, Jane's grandson (profile developed in 2013 by Tom Bredehoft; original trail reviewed in May 2015 by a Magna Carta project member; profile re-reviewed 15 February 2015).

Jane is also the ancestor of George Symes (d 1687) of Antigua (his gr-gr-gr-grandmother). See his profile, in particular this section, for more information. ~ Liz Shifflett, 15 February 2018
