Irene:
I have been away from this genealogy program for quite a time and have only these last few days got back into it with some good results. On seeing your message I delved into my files and finally found what I was looking for and bingo! You have made the connection.
Several years ago, my wife and I took a trip to England and we looked up the firm of John Jaques & Son Ltd. We had a long conversation with Christopher the present President of the company. They claim to be the oldest game manufacturers in the world. Go to their website, Google, John Jaques & Son Ltd and you can read all about it.
However, Christopher gave me a copy, it's a bit rough, of their family tree and it's their Thomas Jaques who married Mary Phillips, that started the company. I am going to see if I can decipher what Christopher gave me and enter it into a family tree file.
You can drop me a line at exraf557@sbcglobal.net and we can persue this a bit more if you would like to.
Cheers for now,
Frederic (Deric) Jaques
