Third daughter of Ann Mapplebeck and William Miles of Ecclesall-Bierslow, a parish in Yorkshire, England.

Both of Jane's older sisters died as infants in England and only she and her younger brother, John, survived to travel with her parents to America in 1842.

They settled in Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois with other LDS immigrants where her mother and father both died in 1844.

At 4 years old, she was taken in by a family they knew in England, the Nicholas Welch family. She and her two year old brother were members of the Welch family from then on.

They came to the Salt Lake Valley in the Betz Company of wagons, arriving in September of 1852.

Her brother, John, settled in Cache County at Paradise, but never married.
