  • Notes 
    • Register(16) of Edward Jaquelin of Jamestown:

      Edward Jaquelin (b. 1668, d. 1739), son of John Jaquelin and Elizabeth


      Page 50.

      Craddock of Kent, England, emigrated to Virginia about the year 1697, and married for his
      second wife, 1706-7, Martha (b. 1686, d. 1738) dau. of William Cary, Gent., of Warwick Co.,
      son of Miles Cary. He was a merchant of prominence and wealth at Jamestown. Issue:

      Mathew Jaquelin was born 1707-8 and died 1727.

      Elizabeth Jaquelin was born Oct. 1709 and died 1759.

      Martha Jaquelin was born Jany 1711 and died 1804.

      Mary Jaquelin was born March 1714 and died Oct. 4, 1764.

      Edward Jaquelin was born Dec. 1716 and died 1733-4.

      Elizabeth Jaquelin married Richard Ambler, the old Colonial treasurer, ancestor of all the
      Virginia Amblers.

      Martha Jaquelin remained single, and died at the advanced age of 95. She was known as
      "Lady" Jaquelin on account of her high, aristocratic ideas, and it is said she waited for a
      duke or a count to come over and address her. At the age of 50 she took upon herself the
      title of "Mistress", a custom in vogue in England amongst aged spinsters at that day.

      Mary Jaquelin married John Smith, a son of Augustine Smith and Sarah Carver. The two sons
      of Edward Jaquelin died in youth, so that the name Jaquelin as a sirname became extinct with
      the death of their father, they having pre-deceased him.

      Martha Jaquelin and her son, Edward, gave to the church at Jamestown a silver baptismal
      font in 1733-4, which, after the destruction of the church, was returned to Col. John Ambler
      as the nearest representative of the donors, and was by him presented to Monumental church,
      Richmond (where it now does service), on the express condition that it should be retained in
      all time in its present shape. These are the inscriptions engraved upon it. This is that
      around the rim on the upper side: "After the church at James City was destroyed this basin
      was returned to Col. John Ambler, of Jamestown, as the representative of the donor, and by
      him was presented, in the year 1831, to the Monumental church, city of Richmond, upon the
      condition that it should be retained in all time in its present shape for the use of the
      church". The following is on the bottom, "Given by Martha, the wife of Edward Jaquelin, and
      Edward, their son, for the use of the church in James City. The last Dyed in Hackny -
      Interred in Shadwell church-yard. Aged 18."
