Jacquiss History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Jacquiss is a name that first reached England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. It comes from the personal name Jacques, which is a form of the Latin name Jacobus.

Early Origins of the Jacquiss family


The surname Jacquiss was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Nether Silton in the North Riding of Yorkshire. At the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086, Nether Silton was recorded as a village with a Hall and the tenant-in-chief was the Count of Mortain. The Domesday Book was a census initiated by Duke William of Normandy taken after his conquest of England at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Jacquiss Spelling Variations


Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Jacquiss family name include Jacques, Jaques, Jack, Jacks, Jackes, Jakes, Jeeks, Jeke, Jeex, Jaquiss, Jaquez and many more.

Migration of the Jacquiss family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Jacquiss family to immigrate North America: James Jacks who settled in Maryland in 1774; J. Michael Jacks settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1740; R.C. Jacks settled in San Francisco Cal. in 1850.
