Do you know that the name "Jaymes" is from Spain? While our ancestors came from Germany, this was because Germany (Roterdam) was a shipping center for America (the New World). "Gilbys" (I'm not sure of the spelling), a multi-volume record of immigrants to the New World, lists three passengers on a ship from Spain in 1513 with the names Juan Jaymes, Pero Jaymes, and Andrus Jaymes. Look up the reference in Gilby's at your library. The entry was not made in Gilby's until the late 1980's.Jaymes is the "old" way of spelling the name. The modern way is "Jaimes". The "y" and the "i" were used interchangeably.
