Lady Jane Partridge
Sir John Garrard became a member of the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers and married Jane, the daughter of Richard Partridge, a citizen of the City of London, and with her had thirteen children, including John (born about 1585), Benedict, Anne, Elizabeth, Ursula, Jane (baptized 1602), and at least two other daughters, these eight surviving infancy. At least four other children died young, a son named John who was born and died in 1597, Margaret, the twin of Jane, who was baptized in May 1602 but died in June 1603, another John who was baptized in December 1604, and a son named Thomas.
Now then, you are probably thinking the same thing I am right now. Who is John Gerrard? and what is a Haberdasher? Well, Wikipedia says...

Sir John Garrard, sometimes spelt Gerrard (c. 1546 – 7 May 1625), was a City of London merchant, a member of the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers, a Buckinghamshire landowner, and a Lord Mayor of London.    

So you see that a haberdasher is a merchant but who were the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers?    

haberdasher is a person who sells small articles for sewing, such as buttonsribbonszips, and other notions (in the United Kingdom[1]) or a men's outfitter (American English[2]). A haberdasher's shop or the items sold therein are called haberdashery.

The Worshipful Company of Haberdashers is one of the senior Livery Companies of the City of London. The organisation, following on from the Mercers' Company, another Livery Company connected with clothing and haberdashery, received a Royal Charter in 1448 and has records dating back to 1371. The formal name under which it is incorporated is The Master and Four Wardens of the Fraternity of the Art or Mystery of Haberdashers in the City of London.   

The livery companies of the City of London are various historic trade associations almost all of which are known as the "Worshipful Company of..." their relevant trade, craft or profession.[1][2] The medieval companies originally developed as guilds and were responsible for the regulation of their trades, controlling, for instance, wages and labour conditions. Until the Protestant Reformation, they were closely associated with religious activities, notably in support of chantry chapels and churches and the observance of ceremonies, notably the mystery plays. Livery companies retain a religious connection today, although they admit members of any faith or none.    

So Sir John Gerrard was a nobleman because he owned land, and he was a haberdasher in a notable Livery company in London, but he was also a Lord Mayor of London.

The Right Honourable the Lord Mayor of London is the legal title for the Mayor of (and head of) the City of London Corporation. The Lord Mayor of London is to be distinguished from the Mayor of London; the former is an officer only of the City of London, while the Mayor of London is the Mayor of Greater London and as such governs a much larger area. Within the City of London, the Lord Mayor has precedence over other individuals and has various special powers, rights and privileges. 

Now you know all about Lord Gerrard, but the subject of the post is his wife, Lady Jane Partridge, 


On 24 January 1616, Garrard's wife died, and Garrard himself followed on 7 May 1625, to be buried with his wife, and like his father, in the church of St Magnus-the-Martyr, London. A monument to him, erected by his son Benedict Gerrard, survives there,[4] and reads as follows.
Here lieth interred the Bodies of Sir John Gerrard, Knt., and Dame Jane, his wife, who was Daughter to Richard Partridge, Citizen and Haberdasher of London, by whom he had 13 children; five whereof died young. They lived comfortably together, 43 years. He was Lord-Mayor of London, in the year 1601. She departed this Life the 24 Jan. 1616; and he left this world, the 7 of May 1625, being 79 years old, leaving only 2 Sons and six Daughters behind him. This Monument was erected at the Charges of Benedict Gerrard, Gent., his youngest Son, 1629.[1]
