About Jane Packington

Jane Packington

Daughter of Humphrey Packington (1502-1556), a mercer, and Elizabeth Harding (d. September 27, 1563). On January 15, 1541 at St. Michael Bassishaw, London, Jane married Humphrey Baskerville or Baskerfield of Wolverley, Worcestershire (d. March 1564), a mercer and alderman. Their children, baptized between 1544 and 1561, were Elizabeth, Humphrey, Angelica, Sarah, Mary, Richard, Anne (March 10, 1559-May 14, 1622), and Martha. Another child was born posthumously. Baskerville left Jane a very wealthy widow. In his will, written September 1, 1563, he also appointed guardians from among his fellow mercers and relatives for his minor children. Anne and Martha were to go to Richard Hollyman, Humphrey to Thomas Heaton, Angell to William Leonard, Richard to John Jackson, and Sarah to Harry Hungate, who was married to Elizabeth and received £200 as her dowry. Jane was to bring up "the childe she nowe goeth withall." On June 29, 1564 at St. Peter West Cheap, Jane took as her second husband Lionel Duckett (1511-August 1587), another mercer, whose family came from Flintham, Nottinghamshire. They had a son, Thomas (1566-c.1608), who was his father's heir, the only child of a first marriage having died young. He was out of favor at the time his father died, however, for marrying against his wishes. Lionel Duckett was Lord Mayor of London in 1572-3. Jane died between September 8, 1589 and February 4, 1590.
