About Jane Dormer (Newdigate)

(1487-July 7, 1571)

Jane Newdigate was the daughter of John Newdigate of Moor Hall, Harefield (b.1460) and Amphelicia Neville (b.1463). J

ane married Sir Robert Dormer of West Wycombe (d. July 12, 1552) and was the mother of Sir William Dormer (1503-May 17, 1575). She rejected Sir Francis Bryan’s suggestion that her son marry Jane Seymour, considering the match beneath him. Jane Seymour went on to marry King Henry VIII while William Dormer married Mary Sidney (d.1542). Jane raised her granddaughter, Jane Dormer (1527/38-January 13,1612) until Jane became a maid of honor to Mary Tudor.

After Queen Mary died in 1558, Jane married the count of Feria and left England in July, 1559, taking her grandmother with her. Lady Dormer accompanied the countess of Feria as far as Mechlin, where the countess gave birth to a son. When she continued on to Spain with her husband, however, Lady Dormer went to Louvain, where she became a leading light in the community of English Catholic exiles. She attempted to return to England only once, to collect her rents, but was forbidden to enter the country by Queen Elizabeth.
