The above arms were found on several pieces of engraved plate presented
by John Lane, double first cousin of Samuel Lane, to Bread Street Ward
Church in London. The above plate has been seen by A. Russell Slagle, a
noted Lane researcher. From his research, it was noted that these arms
were first mentioned in the 1564 Visitation of Northampton. The pedigree
begins with William Lane of Orlybere, County Northampton. It is through
the efforts of Mr. Slagle that the following ancestry of Major Samuel
Lane can be recorded.
From Burke's Landed Gentry the following is found: "This branch of the
Lane family is of some antiquity in Co. Northampton. In 1469 (9 Edward
IV) William Lane was possessed of Orlingbury Manor or Lordship, and died
1546, leaving it to his eldest son Sir Ralph Lane." This Ralph Lane
married Maud Parr, who was a first cousin of Katherine Parr, sixth wife
of Henry VIII.
The Lane Family
The Descendants of Maj. Samuel Lane
Compiled by Larry A. James, 1986
In 1086-two decades after masterminding a cross-channel invasion and installing himself as King of England-William the Conqueror ordered a census of all land, livestock, population, and other resources of the realm, the better to assess taxes. The resulting tax roll came to be known as the "Doomsday Book," and it is still a valuable source of information about everyday life in the 11th century. Scholars claim that the word doomsday simply reflected the idea of an economic "day of judgment," but they may be missing the point. Can it be coincidence that William the Conqueror was also known as William the Bastard?
