  • The wife of this Roger Le Strange is variously reported as Joan and Jane.  This is due to confusion of the French-Norman name borrowed into English at various times over the history of sound change in French.  Joan, Jane and Jean (Jeanne) are all forms of the same name, the feminine form of masculine John (modern French Jean), and other Germanic forms of the name, such as Johan (Johannes), Hans, etc.
