Emily Jane Neave (née Suffield) (June 1872 - 22 February 1963[1]) was Mabel Tolkien's sister, and thus one of J.R.R. Tolkien's aunts.

Jane Neave worked as a schoolteacher, and the young J.R.R. Tolkien on occasion stayed with his aunt and her husband Edvin Neave while Mabel Tolkien was hospitalized.[2]Jane Neave's farm was called Bag End by the locals in Dormston, Worcestershire.[3]

Because of a suggestion from Jane Neave, J.R.R. Tolkien published the book The Adventures of Tom Bombadil in 1962.[4]
