Jane made several visits to Streatham to see her friend, Catherine Bigg-Wither, the wife of the then Rector of Streatham (St Leonard's), the Rev’d Herbert Hill.
Six months before she died, Jane wrote to Catherine’s sister, Alethea, who was staying at Streatham Rectory, mentioning by name each of the Rector’s children:
“I hope this will find all the Streatham party well, neither carried away by the Floods nor rheumatic through the Damps. Kind love & good wishes for a happy New Year to you all, from all our four here. Give our love to the little Boys, if they can be persuaded to remember us. We have not at all forgot Herbert’s & Errol’s fine Countenances. Georgiana is very pretty I dare say. How does Edward like school? I suppose his holidays are not over yet.”
