Jane Newton (née Lowe; ???? – 1498) was the mother of Humphrey Newton De Pownall (1466 – 1536) and is recorded as the 18th great-grandmother of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s medieval paternal ancestors in the Taylor family line. As one of the earliest known Cometanic ancestors, little is known of Jane’s life except for that she was married to Richard Newton and that her parents were Geoffrey del Lowe of Macclesfield (1410 – 1451) and Margaret Leigh (1414 – 1452)
In Cometanic ancestry, Jane is categorised as part of the 20th generation retrograde, and because she was likely born before 1453, she is classified as a medieval ancestor of Cometan, a title that is rarely bestowed.
