About Jane Mitchell

Jane Cooke c. 1604-1609 Leyden, Zuid Holland, Netherlands m. Experience Mitchell aft 22 May 1627

d, bef. 1640 Bridgewater, Plymouth, Mass.

iii JANE, b. say 1609; m. Plymouth in 1627 or soon after EXPERIENCE MITCHELL [ NEHGR 127:94-95; TAG 59:28-31].

Jane did not come over on the Mayflower like her father. He left most of his family behind and sent for them after Plymouth was better established. Jane came over on the 3rd ship ANN in 1623.

He married, probably not long after the 1627 cattle division, Jane Cooke, daughter of 1620 Mayflower passenger Francis Cooke; though there is no record of their marriage, their son Thomas Mitchell in a deed of 1 August 1672 refers to some land given him by his grandfather Francis Cooke (MD 3:104).

By his first wife Jane, Experience Mitchell had Thomas and Elizabeth, but indirect evidence indicates that the rest of his children, with the exception of Mary, perhaps, were probably by his second wife Mary _____.

SOURCE< the Mayflower Society and family records.


Jane was born about 1604 and probably in Leiden, Holland.

Jane married Experience Mitchell, by about 1628 (no marriage record has been found). She widowed him. They had children: Elizabeth b@1628 Thomas b@1630 Mary b@1632

She died before 1641, and perhaps years earlier. She was probably buried in the town of Plymouth, mostly like at Coles Hill Burial Ground.
