Jane, daughter of the First John Girvan, sister of John Thomas, Mary Ann and Robert was born at Tanarchy, Clarendon in March 1837. She may have been educated in Scotland. It is general knowledge in the family that she and her father, the First John, has a very serious break in their relationship. Although she had tried to heal the breach by going to see him, he refused to see her and never did relent. Her father did not leave her anything in his will.

Jane eventually left Jamaica with her daughter Otalee, emigrating to the U.S.A. For some years she kept in touch with the extended family. Mrs. Clarissa Evans reported that she married a Mr. Henry and had a son, Harold.

It was generally felt that her father dealt very harshly with her.
