bullet  General Notes:

Charles James Jecks is the common ancestor the three known surviving Jecks families
originating in London today, indeed perhaps the only Jecks remaining in England.
The LDS microfiche at the Society of Genealogist in London show many entries detailing the
Christenings of Charles' children, all in the County of Middlesex or London. They show that his
wife was Rebecca LLoyd. The Marriage Certificate of one of his sons indicate that he was an
"Accountant". He worked in that capacity as a Banker like others in the family, including his father,
brother, two brothers-in-law, and a nephew. With respect to Charles James Jecks, London
Apprenticeships record a "Charles James Jecks, son of Charles, Mile End Old Town, Middlesex,
Gent, to James Robinson, 2 Apr 1794, Tylers and Bricklayers Company." The Robinson Family
must have been close friends of the family, since Charles James sister Elizabeth was given
"Robinson" as a second name, and his grandmother was Elizabeth Robinson. Less than five
years later, the Bank of England records contain the entry, "Entered service of the Bank 21/22
February 1799. Worked in the Bank Note Office 1800-1805 (with a salary of 50 pounds per annum
in 1800). Discharged 3 October 1805". Charles James Jecks began working for the Bank only three
months before his father died, who was also in the service of the Bank.
Debrett's research recently conducted by Ramon Jecks lists the birth dates of five of his nine children,
and identifies the third child, a daughter, not previously recorded by the author. Except for his first child,
Charles James formed the habit of christening two children at the same time, in some cases, years after
they were born.

Sarah Mountford Jecks has a great, great, great, great Granddaughter living today in the UK named
Claire. Claire reports that Sarah's children or stepchildren and two of Alfred Crickett's children may have
married. A daughter Rosina was born 1841, the first of five children from Sarah's second marriage to a
John Cruft. Rosina was Claire's Great, Great, Great Grandmother. Eliza and Alfred each were given the
second name "Crickett." This name came from a friend of the family, who was head of a law firm of the
same name at Doctors Commons. Their Uncle William had been given his first employment there.
Charles James Jecks died in Newington in 1848: he does not appear to have left a Will. Charles' wife
also died in Newington, in 1841.


Charles married Rebecca Lloyd, daughter of George Lloyd and Ann. (Rebecca Lloyd was born in 1777, christened on 16 Aug 1778 in St Mary Whitechapel, Stepney, London, England, died in 1841 in Newington, Surrey, England and was buried on 9 Jun 1841 in Walworth St Peter.)
