Jane Isham Randolph Jefferson
Birth: Feb. 9, 1720
London Borough of Tower Hamlets
Greater London, England
Death: Mar. 31, 1776
Charlottesville City
Virginia, USA

Mother: Jane Lilburne Rogers 1692-1760
Jane Randolph Jefferson (February 9, 1720-March 31, 1776) was the mother of Thomas Jefferson. According to the Jefferson family bible, she was born 9 February 1720 (o.s.) in Shadwell parish, Tower Hamlets, London. The parish register of St. Paul's, Upper Shadwell, notes her baptism on 20 February 1720 as the daughter of Isham Randolph (1687-1742), "mariner" of Shakespeare's Walk (literally around the corner from the church), and Jane Rogers (1698-1760). The Randolphs left London for Virginia shortly thereafter and were in the colony by October 1725 when Jane's sister, Mary, was born in Williamsburg.....

Peter died in 1757, leaving their house and plantation (named Shadwell for her London birthplace) on the Rivanna River to Jane. Although much of the main house at Shadwell burned in 1770, she continued to live there until her death on 31 March 1776. She was buried in the family graveyard at Monticello.[1]

Shadwell is, of course, now part of "Greater Charlottesville."
