Jane was born on Thursday, 9 September 1802 at Lancaster.1,2 She was the daughter of John Wetherell and Margaret Parker. She was baptised at St. Mary's on Sunday, 17 October 1802 at Lancaster . On the baptism record her family name was recorded as 'Wetherel.3' Jane lived in May 1824 at Walton-on-the-Hill, Liverpool.4

She married Donald Nicholson, son of Donald Nicholson and Ann Metcalf, at St. Michael in the Hamlet on Tuesday, 11 May 1824 at Aigburth, Liverpool. She was 21 and her husband Donald was 20.4 She presumably lived with her spouse Donald at Hanley Street, in Liverpool, in March 1829.5 Jane, aged 31 and Donald Nicholson, aged 30 became the parents of Donald Nicholson on Friday, 6 June 1834 at Liverpool.6,1 She presumably lived with her spouse Donald at Stafford Street, Lime Street Ward, Liverpool, circa 1840.7

Jane Wetherell was recorded as living with Donald Nicholson in the 1841 census at Walton-on-the-Hill, Liverpool, and other records indicate this was her spouse. The 1841 census only recorded adult ages rounded down to the nearest 5 years; her approximate age was recorded as 35 years old. Also living in the house were seven of their children and a servant.8 She presumably lived with her spouse Donald at Castle Street, in Liverpool, in December 1843.9

Her husband Donald became bankrupt on 2 December 1843.9

Jane Wetherell was recorded as the spouse of Donald Nicholson in the 1851 census at Prescot Road, West Derby, Liverpool. She was recorded as being 48 years old. Also living in the house were four of their children aged 21 to 10 years old.2

In what must be astonishingly bad luck, Donald and Jane had four of their daughters die unmarried between 1847 and 1852. Each was between 19 and 22 years old.

Jane Wetherell was recorded as the spouse of Donald Nicholson in the 1861 census at 9 Chapman Street, Manchester. She was recorded as being 58 years old.10

On 23 January 1863 her husband Donald Nicholson was declared bankrupt for the second time and was forced to surrender himself to the Registrar of the County Court. A first meeting of his creditors was set up for a date 3 weeks hence at Liverpool.11 Jane lived in December 1870 at 37 Chapman Street, in Manchester.12

Jane died on 8 December 1870 at Manchester Registration District at age 68.13,14 Her body was interred at Necropolis (Low Hill Cemetery) on 12 December 1870 at Liverpool.12
