Jane Invill (?–1829)

Jane Hooper arrived in Sydney aboard the Ganges in June 1797 as a free immigrant. She seems to have used the surname Winton in the colony. She married John Jeffries on 18 March 1798; both signed the register with a mark. Following Jeffries death in 1813 she married Thomas Invill, a baker, on 29 November 1813 at St Philip's Church, Sydney. They were still together in 1828. She is probably the Jane Envile who died in New South Wales in 1829.
