Lady Jane Cavendish

-
Standard Name: Cavendish, Lady Jane
Birth Name: Jane Cavendish
Self-constructed Name: Cavendysshe
Self-constructed Name: JC
Styled: Lady Jane Cavendish
Married Name: Jane Cheyne
LJC wrote, in the middle years of the seventeenth century, nearly ninety poems (including occasional and political pieces, compliment, religious pieces and a country-house poem) and the better part of two plays: a pastoral or mock-pastoral drama and a comedy. Her sister Lady Elizabeth had some part, but a lesser one, in this output. Her writing was not published, but was apparently well known in manuscript form in her extended and discriminating social circle.
Head-and-shoulders portrait of Lady Jane Cavendish.  Turned slightly to her left, she looks out to the viewer with slightly raised eyebrows. Her hair is off of her face, falling in soft curls to her shoulder. She is dressed in blue, with a jewelled headpiece, and pearl necklace and drop earrings.
