Jane (widow Overend) is a central figure in the marriage settlement made in 1685 between the Overend family of Fangfoss and the Towse family of Garton on the Wolds.

She is the widowed mother of Timothy Overend baptised in 1672 and so we suppose he is 13 or at most 14 at the time of this marriage. As he seems to be her heir we estimate her to have married 1665-1670, and so to be born about 1645-1655.



While Jane certainly existed and played an important role in the development of this family, all her dates are at present estimates based on the marriage of her son Timothy. Closer examination of the Settlement, and or the Fangfoss Register, may firm up at least some of this with clear sources.
