lucky1...Thank you for your reply.
I'm looking for the origins of the Jess family in the British Isles...Northern Ireland in particular. Currently, there are Jess families in the Belfast area: Annahill, Bailysmill, Ballykee, Ballynahinch, Carryduff, Comber, Dromara, Dromore, Hillsborough, Killyleagh, etc.
When did the first Jess families come to Northern Ireland? Where did they settle?
