About Jane Franklin (Griffin)

See 'Portrait a Jane'. A life of Lady Franklin by Frances J Woodward, first printed 1951 by Hodder and Stoughton.

Lady (Jane) Franklin nee Griffin (1792-1875, m1828)

Jane Franklin was a friend of Eleanor Anne Porden and after her death married her husband John Franklin as his second wife in 1828. Jane was an indefatigable traveller in her own right in Europe, Syria and North Africa, as well as accompanying her husband to Australia where he was governor of Van Diemen’s Land, 1837-1843. After the disappearance of Franklin’s last Arctic expedition in 1845, Jane Franklin continued to press for investigations into the fate of her husband and his colleagues until proof of their death was found in 1859.
