Under the will of her mother, Jane Mary Cosens was to inherit a one-third share in the Spring Valley estate in St Thomas-in-the-East subject to the interest of her aunt Jane Thomson for the latter's life or until she married: Jane Thomson married in 1825. Jane Mary Cosens does not appear among the claimants for slave-compensation for the estate in the 1830s, but her uncle by marriage Henry Bowyer Lane in 1832 gave some details of her borrowing from John Mackie & Co. against her share in the estate.
