Short biography
Jane, Lady Cornwallis, later Lady Bacon, was the daughter of Hercules Meautys of West Ham, Essex, England, and his wife Philippa. In 1608, she married Sir William Cornwallis of Brome, Suffolk, who died in 1611 when their son was only a year old. In 1613, she married Sir Nathaniel Bacon, of Culford, Suffolk, with whom she had three more children. Her letters, published in 1842 as The Private Correspondence of Lady Jane Cornwallis, 1613-1644, illuminate the interests and concerns of the 17th-century English gentry and contribute to our knowledge of Jacobean and Stuart family life. Among her descendant was Charles, Earl of Cornwallis, the British general in the American Revolutionary War.
