England

Jacob Henry Jeanneret moved from Switzerland to England before 1760. His brothers Jean Frederic and Jonas Claude also moved there.

 

The account of the family written in 1782 by Jonas Claude Jeanneret named Jacob Henry as the head of the family that then lived in Meards Street, Parish of St. Anne, Soho, London. Soho was and is one of the city’s most cosmopolitan quarters. Between 1660 and 1685 many French Huguenots fled the persecution of Louis XIV and settled in Soho. Subsequently, many French, Swiss and Italians followed and congregated there.

 

Rental records still on file in London show that Henry Jeanneret (who evidently did not use the name Jacob) was a tenant at No. 14 Meards Street, North from 1760 to 1774. He then moved across the street  and is listed at No. 5 Meards Street, South from 1774 to 1782. Henry probably died there in 1782 as from that year until 1799 No. 5 Meards Street was rented to Elizabeth Jeanneret (nee Perrett), Henry’s second wife. Three of their sons were living at the same address and the eldest son was in the East Indies where he died.

 

Survey of London: Volumes 33 and 34, St Anne Soho

Edited by F H W Sheppard. These volumes describe Soho, the most famous of London's cosmopolitan quarters. The area covered is defined largely by Wardour Street, Oxford Street and Charing Cross Road, and includes Soho Square, Leicester Square, and part of Cambridge Circus. Many of the streets here were first built up in the late 17th century under the building speculators Dr Nicholas Barbon and Richard Frith. Some fine Georgian houses are described and illustrated, for example No. 1 Greek Street and 76 Dean Street. Many well-known West End theatres are also found here.

In his will, apart from all of his goods and chattels plus three rooms, Jacob bequeathed 78 pounds per annum to his wife Elizabeth. In today’s terms (2018) that equates to approximately $40,000/annum.
