    Name Meaning

    English (Leicestershire): rare pronunciation of Jaques 1, a Frenchified form of Jakes . Jaqueth and Jaquish are variants of the same surname, reflecting common pronunciations of /s/ in ordinary speech.Alternatively, perhaps an altered pronunciation of French Jaques 2 or of its regular form Jacques .History: The American Jaquiths trace their origin to Abraham Jaquith, who died in 1675 or 1676 in Suffolk County, MA. He is believed to have landed in Boston in 1643 with Huguenots from La Rochelle, France; he married Ann(e) Jordan or Jourdain c. 1643. His descendants also bear the surnames Jaqueth and Jaquish. Abraham Jaquith is listed in the register of Huguenot ancestors recognized by the Huguenot Society of America. However, Abraham's surname and those of his descendants are more consistent with an English, rather than a French Huguenot, origin.
