About Jane Ellis

From Biographical Sketches of Richard Ellis, the First Settler of Ashfield, Mass., and His Descendants (Google eBook) W. Graham, 1888 - 483 pages.  Page 9-13:

JANE PHILLIPS, who married Richard Ellis in Easton, Mass., in 1728, was born July 1, 1709. Her parents were Capt. John Phillips and Elizabeth Drake, his wife, and her grandparents (on her father's side), were Richard and Elizabeth ( Packer) Phillips of Weymouth, near Boston, and Richard was a son of Nicholas Phillips.

Jane Phillips' sister and brothers were as follows: Experience, born 1699; Samuel, 1702; Joshua, 1704; Caleb, 1707; Thomas, 1712; Richard, 1713.

It does not appear whether Jane Phillips was born in Easton or Weymouth, but more probably the latter place. It is said that she was a good woman and devoted to her family. She died in Ashfield about 1760. The Phillips family, of which she was a member, were numerous and influential in Easton and in Ashfield.
