from Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Lane, Jane, Lady Fisher (d. 1689)

Lane, Jane, Lady Fisher (d. 1689), royalist heroine, was the third daughter of Thomas Lane (1585–1660) and Anne Bagot (b. 1589, d. in or after 1651), who married at Blithfield, Staffordshire, on 10 February 1610.

Her father, ‘a person of excellent reputation’, resided at Bentley Hall, near Wolverhampton, and had ‘a fair estate’ (Clarendon, Hist. rebellion, 5.199) worth £700 a year, while her mother was the sister of Sir Hervey Bagot (1591–1660) [see under Bagot family (per. c.1490–1705)], a wealthy baronet and MP for Staffordshire in the Long Parliament. Both families were royalists during the civil war.

Thomas Lane served as a commissioner of array in 1642–3, while Jane's eldest brother, John, fought in the king's army as the colonel of a cavalry regiment and in 1643–4 was successively governor of Charles I's garrisons in Stafford and Rushall Hall. In May 1644 Bentley Hall was extensively looted by parliamentary forces.
