Jane's fathernever seemed to desert her but washowever arrested. Jane's mother begged Queen Mary to pardon her husband but she never asked as much for her daughter. Jane did not appear to love her husband but she was compassionate. She was deeply upset and cried from her tower window as she watched him go to his execution. It's is unclear why she refused to see him in their last days, it is not known why. She did, however, write that she found him to be whiney and immature. Later in Guilford's own cell in the tower of London, the name "Jane" was found engraved in the stone.
Mary did not sentence Jane to the usual public execution but had it done privately with only a few people. I for one do not know who those people would have been but if the painting above is anywhere near true they seem to be quite mournfull and distraught over her early death.
Just before her execution, to the people round about she said this:
"Good people, I am come hither to die, and by a law I am condemned to the same. The fact, indeed, against the queen's highness was unlawful, and the consenting thereunto by me: but touching the procurement and desire thereof by me or on my behalf, I do wash my hands thereof in innocency, before God, and the face of you, good Christian people, this day"
The Executioner asked her forgiveness wich she gave willingly. She then said "I pray you dispatch me quickly" and blindfolded herself. She knelt down for the block and couldn't find it. "What shall I do? Where is it?' Jane cried, whereupon someone standing by guided her to the block where she laid her head down and said her last words. "Lord, into thy hands I commend my spirit!"
