Jane Washburn1

b. before 1672, d. before 21 September 1698
Father*John Washburn1
Mother*Elizabeth Mitchell1 b. 1628
Birth*before 1672Jane Washburn was born before 1672, and possibly as early as 1670 (if age 20 at her marriage), in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).2,1,3
Marriage*after 28 July 1690She married, as his first wife, William Orcutt Jr., son of William Orcutt and Martha Lane, after 28 July 1690 and before 10 September 1694 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County.2
(Mother-Probable) Research OpinionDaughter Joanna was named in her father's will, and if born in 1690 and married at age 25, would have been age 46 at the birth of her tenth child. Or if born in 1694 and married at age 21, she would have been 42 when her tenth child was born. While the Mayflower Cooke source chose caution and identified Jane Washburn as Joanna's possible mother, this researcher believes Jane the more probable choice since Joanna's father William Orcutt Jr. and Hannah Smith didn't marry until 21 September 1698.2
(Mother-Probable) Research OpinionDaughter Elizabeth was named in her father's will, and if born in 1696, would have married at age 21. While the Mayflower Cooke source chose caution and identified Jane Washburn as Elizabeth's possible mother, this researcher believes Jane the more probable choice since Elizabeth's father William Orcutt Jr. and Hannah Smith didn't marry until 21 September 1698.2
Death*before 21 September 1698She died in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, before 21 September 1698 when her husband married again.2
