<s>Davy lists her name as "Joan" and Visitations seems silent on her forename. The FamilySearch tree has her as "Jane" but with no source given.

I understand Jane and Joan are versions of the same name but should we change this to Joan given the source?</s>

Looking into the Visitations, the source does actually name her as "Jane" (as does also the visitation of Suffolk. Therefore agree with this as Jane.
