Name: Jane Thorne
Birth: ABT 1558 in Northants 1
Death: 12 AUG 1626
MEM: Minster, Cornwall; Inscription
Change Date: 13 JAN 2009
The will of Thomas Thorne of Yardley Hastings mentions his 'son Hender', and the MI of said Hender mentions Thomas Thorne of Yardley Hastings.
different parentage for her is given in Vivian's edition of the Visitations of Devon, p. 727. There she is said, in a pedigree of the family of Thorne of Thorne, to be a daughter of Andrew, a second son who moved from Devon to Northamptonshire and there married Frances, dau. of Nicholas Lelande of Northants. A number of earlier generations are given.
There appears to be no connection between the family of Thorne of Thorne in Devon and the Northamptonshire family which Brandon Fradd refers to as "Dorne alias Thorne".
The M.I. of John and Jane (Thorne) Hender does show the arms of Thorne of Thorne (Devon). I suggest that the Thorne family of Yardley Hastings did not use a coat of arms at that time (or that the Henders--far away in Cornwall--did not remember what the proper coat of arms was, and just substituted those of a local family).

Heiress I assume as her arms were used by the Henders.

Text: Generally reliable, but not to be taken totally at face value. Mistakes occur, and some of their dating and naming conventions puzzle me.
