Just a final thought,I will reread the will to see if Jane is referred to specifically as Jane Lawson to rule out her being the daughter of a daughter.

It looks like Daniel died in infancy.Haven't been able to pinpoint John post baptism yet,too many of the same name.

That's the conclusion I came to as well.
Added:I have a reservation about that being the appropriate marriage as The National Archives have a record for a Charles Lawson born circa 1780 serving in the 15th Foot Regiment

The Charles Lawson who marries in Hull in 1802 is given as a weaver,and I don't see where he is likely to fit in with the Whitby family.

It looks to me that the husband of the Jane Lawson who marries in 1837 is Marmaduke Wilson.This Jane dies in 1874 aged 65.
Charles is more problematic.I suspect he is the Charles baptised in 1800.The transcription I have seen gives his parents as Charles and Ann,but looking at the original it could just as easily be Jane.
I can't yet identify him on any census or death record.I suspect he may have died at sea.I'll keep looking if you want me to.

This may help distinguish different Lawson lines in Whitby.This one does not look like yours!

It looks like it was a different Jane Lawson who married Captain William Garbutt

It is possible that the will reads as Joanne,but the above still applies.Perhaps she was the one who married in 1837.I'lll see if I can establish which of the options applies.It is possible that she remained a spinster.

As the only untapped source of info,I couldn't resist downloading the will.The handwriting is the usual difficult one,but sufficient to identify references to son Stephenson,grandson Charles,and granddaughters Alice and Jane.
The following is very tenuous but may just hang together.There are two marriages of a Jane Lawson in Whitby in the 1830s.One is given as of 1830,a non conformist wedding(Roman Catholic or other?,might explain the difficulty finding records?),for a Jane Lawson born 1809 to a Captain William Garbutt.I can identify a Jane Garbutt in the 1851 census in Whitby,as a married mariner's wife living alone.(There are Merchant Navy records for a William Garbutt,born 1831 in Whitby,who might be their son).Even more tenuous might be identifying this Jane as the one in  1861 as a lodger in a Stephenson household,given born 1806).I have not pursued the possible 1837 marriage,nor have I ,yet,looked for Charles.
