Jane Lothrop was baptised at Edgerton, Kent, England on 29 Sep 1614, daughter of Rev. John Lothrop and Hannah Howse (Hannah was the daughter of Rev. John Howes and Anna Lloyd and Anna was daughter of John or Samuel Lloyd & Margaret Dodd)[1] As a non-conformist, Rev. John Lothrop was imprisoned by the English government, and while imprisoned, his wife passed away.[2] Rev. John was released from prison with the stipulation he would emigrate to the New World with his family and as many of his congregation as he could take. The family emigrated aboard the Griffin arriving in Boston on 18 Sep 1634.[3] Within days of arrival, Rev. John moved his family to Scituate (in Plymouth Colony, Boston was in Massachusetts Bay Colony) where he set up a new congregation.<ibid.> This Congregation splintered due to religious differences in 1638 and Rev. John petitioned the Plymouth court to create a new congregation on unsettled lands. This petition was granted and in 1639 he went on to found what is now the town of Barnstable.[4]

Jane married Samuel Fuller (son of Pilgrim Edward Fuller) in Scituate on 8 Apr 1635.[5] They were married by Captain Miles Standish at the James Cudworth house.[6] The couple originally lived at Scituate, but in 1640 moved to Barnstable (the town her father founded the previous year).[7]

Jane Lothrop and Samuel Fuller had nine children; one infant (sex unknown), three sons and five daughters (Hannah, Elizabeth, Sarah [died young], Mary and [another] Sarah)
