     Jane (?) married Charles? Garrard; Her 1st husband.2 Jane (?) was born on 28 October 1636 at Ipswich, co. Suffolk, England.1 She married Rev. Benjamin Doggett, son of William Doggett and Anne Langley, on 21 September 1664 at St. Mary-le-Tower, Ipswich, co. Suffolk, England;
Per "Dogetts and Other cousins":
     "On 21 Sep 1664, the Rev. Benjamin was married in Hadleigh to a young widow, Jane Garrard. The identity of Jane's first husband and parents are uncertain, although the death of a Charles Garrard is recorded in the Hadleigh parish register as occurring 10 Apr 1664."

Jane (?) died on 12 June 1682 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA, at age 45.1 She married John Boatman after 1683;
Her 3rd husband. Per "Dogetts and Other cousins":
     "Soon after the death of the Rev. Benjamin, his widow, Jane, married for the third time. Her new husband was John Boatman. John was apparently not popular with his stepchildren, and when young Benjamin became of age he sued Boatman in county court for taking advantage of Richard by putting him to work in the fields and not providing adequate support for him. The court ordered an accounting to be made by Boatman and restitution to be made to him. We can imagine that relations continued to be strained, as county court records."2
     GAV-8.3
In Rev. Benjamin Doggett's will dated 14 March 1681 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA, Jane (?) was named as an heir;
Per "Dogetts and Other cousins":
     "Benjamin died in Lancaster County in 1682 or 1683, leaving a will of record dated 14 Mar 1681/2. The will was probated in Lancaster County in January 1682/3. See transcript of will.
     "The will divides the 350 acre plantation between his three sons, Benjamin, Richard and William, with Benjamin receiving 150 acres and the two younger sons receiving 100 acres each. His wife Jane was given the use of the land until remarriage. His daughter Anne was given personal property, to be given in two equal annual installments, provided she did not marry before reaching age 18. As she had to be nearly 18 at the time the will was drawn, this would not seem to have been a serious problem for her.
     "The reference in the will to Benjamin's daughter Jane is intriguing. "I give unto my daughter Jane Doggett in England twenty shillings and no more because she hath been detained from me and is surely provided for." We can speculate from this that Benjamin was not happy with the fact that Jane had not come to America with the family. Perhaps she had physical or mental infirmities that made it unwise for her to attempt to make the arduous trip to America, and she may have been kept by Benjamin's wife's family or may have been institutionalized.
     "Benjamin also provided in his will for payment of his debts to George Flowers and to Robert Griggs, primarily out of tobacco, but also out of the sale of planks sawed out of timber on the plantation, and of the sale of pipe staves. Pipe staves were used to make pipes or casks of wood in which tobacco was shipped to England, and may have been hewn from timber on Benjamin's plantation.
     "Benjamin had accumulated a library for use in performing his ministerial duties, and otherwise. Apparently there was not a good market for these books in Virginia, and Benjamin directed that the books be appraised, that a "great chest" be bought, and the books be packed up and sent to England to be sold. The money realized from the sale was to be used to help pay the debt to Robert Griggs, and if there was any surplus, the money was to be used by his widow to buy a mourning ring with the inscription "Follow Me." The purchase of mourning rings bearing memorial inscriptions was a popular custom at the time, and the rings could be quite valuable. The two executors were given 20 shillings to purchase mourning rings also.
     "Benjamin directed that he be buried beneath the chancel in St. Mary's Whitechapel church. As it is believed that the present church was built a hundred yards or so from the original location, we do not know whether his remains were reinterred when the new church was built, but we would hope that this was the case.

"Early Colonial Settlers of Southern Maryland and Virginia's Northern Neck Counties":
     "LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE REV. BENJAMIN DOGGETT
Recorded 10 January 1682/83 in Lancaster County, Virginia, Will Book 5, Page 82
(Spelling and punctuation modernized)

- The Last Will and Testament of CHRISTOPHER THRELKELL deceased was presented in Court by MARY DOGGETT his Executrix who made Oath thereto and being proved by the Oath of GEORGE EVERITT one of the witnesses to the said Will is admitted to Record, and on the motion of BENJAMINE DOGGETT and MARY his wife Executrix as aforesaid and their performing what is Usual in such Cases Certificate is granted them for obtaining a probate thereof in due form."1 Rev. Benjamin Doggett and Jane Doggett immigrated before 28 January 1669 to Virginia, USA.3
In Rev. Benjamin Doggett's will dated 14 March 1681 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA, Benjamin Doggett was named as an heir;
Per "Dogetts and Other cousins":
     "Benjamin died in Lancaster County in 1682 or 1683, leaving a will of record dated 14 Mar 1681/2. The will was probated in Lancaster County in January 1682/3. See transcript of will.
     "The will divides the 350 acre plantation between his three sons, Benjamin, Richard and William, with Benjamin receiving 150 acres and the two younger sons receiving 100 acres each. His wife Jane was given the use of the land until remarriage. His daughter Anne was given personal property, to be given in two equal annual installments, provided she did not marry before reaching age 18. As she had to be nearly 18 at the time the will was drawn, this would not seem to have been a serious problem for her.
     "The reference in the will to Benjamin's daughter Jane is intriguing. "I give unto my daughter Jane Doggett in England twenty shillings and no more because she hath been detained from me and is surely provided for." We can speculate from this that Benjamin was not happy with the fact that Jane had not come to America with the family. Perhaps she had physical or mental infirmities that made it unwise for her to attempt to make the arduous trip to America, and she may have been kept by Benjamin's wife's family or may have been institutionalized.
     "Benjamin also provided in his will for payment of his debts to George Flowers and to Robert Griggs, primarily out of tobacco, but also out of the sale of planks sawed out of timber on the plantation, and of the sale of pipe staves. Pipe staves were used to make pipes or casks of wood in which tobacco was shipped to England, and may have been hewn from timber on Benjamin's plantation.
     "Benjamin had accumulated a library for use in performing his ministerial duties, and otherwise. Apparently there was not a good market for these books in Virginia, and Benjamin directed that the books be appraised, that a "great chest" be bought, and the books be packed up and sent to England to be sold. The money realized from the sale was to be used to help pay the debt to Robert Griggs, and if there was any surplus, the money was to be used by his widow to buy a mourning ring with the inscription "Follow Me." The purchase of mourning rings bearing memorial inscriptions was a popular custom at the time, and the rings could be quite valuable. The two executors were given 20 shillings to purchase mourning rings also.
     "Benjamin directed that he be buried beneath the chancel in St. Mary's Whitechapel church. As it is believed that the present church was built a hundred yards or so from the original location, we do not know whether his remains were reinterred when the new church was built, but we would hope that this was the case.

Jane Doggett and Rev. Benjamin Doggett immigrated before 28 January 1669 to Virginia, USA.2
In Rev. Benjamin Doggett's will dated 14 March 1681 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA, Jane Doggett was named as an heir;

Wife Dorothy Lawrence and her son Wm. Lyster. Wits.: Francis Emanuel, Wm. Brown. W.B. 5, p. 109."1
In Rev. Benjamin Doggett's will dated 14 March 1681 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA, Anne Doggett was named as an heir;
Per "Dogetts and Other cousins":
     "Benjamin died in Lancaster County in 1682 or 1683, leaving a will of record dated 14 Mar 1681/2. The will was probated in Lancaster County in January 1682/3. See transcript of will.
     "The will divides the 350 acre plantation between his three sons, Benjamin, Richard and William, with Benjamin receiving 150 acres and the two younger sons receiving 100 acres each. His wife Jane was given the use of the land until remarriage. His daughter Anne was given personal property, to be given in two equal annual installments, provided she did not marry before reaching age 18. As she had to be nearly 18 at the time the will was drawn, this would not seem to have been a serious problem for her.
     "The reference in the will to Benjamin's daughter Jane is intriguing. "I give unto my daughter Jane Doggett in England twenty shillings and no more because she hath been detained from me and is surely provided for." We can speculate from this that Benjamin was not happy with the fact that Jane had not come to America with the family. Perhaps she had physical or mental infirmities that made it unwise for her to attempt to make the arduous trip to America, and she may have been kept by Benjamin's wife's family or may have been institutionalized.
     "Benjamin also provided in his will for payment of his debts to George Flowers and to Robert Griggs, primarily out of tobacco, but also out of the sale of planks sawed out of timber on the plantation, and of the sale of pipe staves. Pipe staves were used to make pipes or casks of wood in which tobacco was shipped to England, and may have been hewn from timber on Benjamin's plantation.
     "Benjamin had accumulated a library for use in performing his ministerial duties, and otherwise. Apparently there was not a good market for these books in Virginia, and Benjamin directed that the books be appraised, that a "great chest" be bought, and the books be packed up and sent to England to be sold. The money realized from the sale was to be used to help pay the debt to Robert Griggs, and if there was any surplus, the money was to be used by his widow to buy a mourning ring with the inscription "Follow Me." The purchase of mourning rings bearing memorial inscriptions was a popular custom at the time, and the rings could be quite valuable. The two executors were given 20 shillings to purchase mourning rings also.
     "Benjamin directed that he be buried beneath the chancel in St. Mary's Whitechapel church. As it is believed that the present church was built a hundred yards or so from the original location, we do not know whether his remains were reinterred when the new church was built, but we would hope that this was the case.
