Jane was the third of the five children of William Dunham and his wife Alice (née Foreman) of Witchford, Cambridgeshire.
Of all five children, Jane appears to have been the only one to survive into adulthood.
By 1815, Jane marries John Hawkins, a labourer, who unlike her appears to have been illiterate (signing his name on the marriage register with a cross).
They settle down in Witcham where they have eight children between 1818 and 1840. Sadly, their daughter Mary died when she was 9 years old in 1844. The event is recorded in the Witcham burial records as "Burnt to death in the absence of her Mother. Buried by coroner's order".
On the 1851 census (Jane's last), the rest of the family are described as living 'Wardy Hill Way' - most likely describing a direction more than an actual place, and I assume that the family lived in the fenland between the two villages.
Jane pre-deceased John in 1859. He lived for another 8 years.
