About Mary Camp (Canfield)

Mary was most likely born in England. When she married Edward Camp, they lived in New Haven until his death. She then returned to Milford, CT and married John Lane on April 4, 1666, and lived there until her death in 1680. "Lane, John, widower of Milford married 4 April 1666 Campe, widow who lived at Chestnut Hill in New Haven Parish by Mr. Treat Majestrat in Milford." (Milford Vital Records)

John Lane died in 1669 and in his will mentioned Mary's children, Samuel, Edward Jr., and Mary.

Mary Lane died in 1680; Milford Church Records state "Lane, Mary died Feb. 1680". An inventory of her will was presented Feb 22, 1680: "The last will and testament of Mary Lane, who being very sicke of body but of sound memory and understanding, doth bequeath as followeth: I will my body to be decently buried and my soule to God that gave it.
