The Jaquette family in America descends from Jean Paul Jaquet and his wife Maria de Carpentier, who arrived in the American colonies in 1654/1655. The family settled in Delaware and New Jersey. The branches of the family have the names JAQUET, JAQUETT, and JAQUETTE. If you have genealogical information to offer or requests for genealogical information, you may contact me by e-mail (); my response may be somewhat slow, but I will respond.
The family coat of arms at the left is an old version, whereas the one on the right is a more modern (17th-18th century) one, elaborated by success of the family. Both will show the basic Jaquet coat of arms specification if encouraged with your mouse.
For some information on the first known Jaquet in our line and the first Jaquet to arrive in
America, see this
summary of ancient Jaquets.
The lineage of our Jaquette family, omitting all living generations, is available here in an
abridged version of an illustrated talk given at the Genealogical Society of Salem County
(New Jersey) in April 1999:
