|Jane Reed (?)
Noted events in her life were:
• Tradition. Jane's last name may have been Reed. Tradition holds she was born ca.1611 at Maidstone or St Peters at Canterbury, County Kent, England, the daughter of Wm & Lucy (Henage) Reed. No proof of her birth nor record of her marriage to John Niles has been found in the records of England or Colonial New England. Her name does not appear in the Reed families who emigrated to New England. It seems unlikely they would even have met while in England considering the distance between Kent & Dorset Counties. She may have come over on the same ship with another family and made the acquaintance of John during the voyage.
