  1. This article appears to confuse John Newton Lane of Kings Bromley with Newton John Lane of Elmshurst, who were in fact cousins. If anyone would like more information contact me Allan Howard, leader of Kings Bromley Historians on this website (

  2. Hello Allan, my mothers GGfather was William Lane who married 1852 St. Pauls, Dublin, Jane Mansergh. William was decendant of William Lane who was granted lands in Ireland 1666 who was the son of Thomas Lane and Anne Bagot of Kings Bromley. I have a number of gaps in the family tree of these Irish Lanes and I wonder if you have any information or know someone who does. William Lane and Jane Mansergh came to Australia on the maiden voyage of the now restored ship ” Great Britian “.Their son John William Lane continued the Lane family militery tridition and served in the 35th Battalion WW1.
    Bye Neville Good
