Jane Simcoe was born about1700. We do not know where she was born or who her parents were.
According to Maryland Marriages 1634-1777 Jane Simcoe wed Nathan Phillips on April 18, 1733 at St. Mary Ann's Parish in North East, Cecil County Maryland. As Nathan's known daughter, Elizabeth was a mother in 1741, we do not believe that Jane Simcoe was her mother but Nathan's second wife. We have no information on a previous wife.
We know Nathan had at least four children, maybe five but we don't believe any of those were born to Jane Simcoe.
Nathan Phillips will is in the Maryland Archives, Liber 25, page 407. It states that Nathan Phillips of Elk River left the plantation to wife Jane Phillips. After her death to be divided between James Boulden and Johanes Arrants. The will was filed in 1748. James Boulden and Johanes Arrants were Nathan's two
There is a will at the Maryland Archives for Jean Phillips, Liber 26, F page 57 filed 1749. This may well be our Jane Phillips but we have not read the will yet. It would shed light on her family. Both the wills are noted in Index to Cecil County MD Wills 1674-1777.
Nothing is known about Jane Simcoe but here are a few Simcoe names that have come to light. Perhaps they will connect someday.:
