Note on Husband: John JAQUES (1)

"of Newcastle On Tyne"1

Note on Husband: John JAQUES (2)

The Jaques family are reputed to have been Hugenot refugees from France, possibly from the Loire valley, but the earliest proven connection is John Jaques, a shoemaker of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. We do not know anything about him, other than the indication that he was probably still alive in 1808.

His son was James, a tailor living in the Minories, an area in the East of London. The son married a Catherine, and this marriage is probably that of James Jaques and Catherine Towers, who married on 6 February 1785 at the church of St Clement Danes, London. Both were described as of that parish, and the witnesses were Thomas Jennings and R. Harrison.

Records at the Chamberlain's Court, Guildhall, London (researched 11 September 1974) show that in May 1808 Freedom of the city was granted to James Jaques of Little George Street, Minories, a Loriner. This freedom was granted by redemption (purchase) on payment of 46 shillings and eight pence. He was 42nd of the Chamberlain's 50, and his father was given as John Jaques, shoemaker, of Newcastle-upon-Tine(sic). (Loriners were traditional makers of bits for horses)1
