Character description

Wife of John Dee the Astrologer. (née  Fromond)   They married in 1578 when she was 23 and Dee was 51. She was to be the wife that Edward Kelley claimed Uriel had demanded that he and Dee share, and although Dee complied for a while this eventually caused the two men to part company.  Jane died during the plague in Manchester and was buried in March 1604, along with a number of his children.  In S. J. Parris's series on Bruno, she is portrayed as minimally literate, but definitely the partner best prepared to deal with practicalities.   A very patient and tolerant wife.  

[from John Dee in Wikipedia]
