I am trying to trace my Grandfathers family who lived in Shelf 1870s to early 1900s. He had a sister who went to California in the 1920s.
I am his grandson from his second family.

Hello. I believe you're looking for Jagger of Shelf. If this is Shelf near Bradford & Halifax, then you may be related to Joseph Hobson Jagger who was the man who broke the Bank at Monte Carlo in 1875. He was working at a mill in Shelf in 1875. He was born 2 Sept 1830 and died 25 April 1892 and was Buried at Shelf. The only info I have is that he had a sister who married into my very distant family called Sowood, he may have had other sisters. He won 2 million french francs but wasn't really a gambler. He realised that there was a defective wheel and calculated accordingly. He left the casino as soon as he realised that the wheel had been changed.

Sorry I can't help about the Sowood surname, but do you know there's a small area of Halifax, West Yorkshire called Sowood it's very near Elland?

Thanks, Jacquie

I'm interested in descendants of Jeremiah Jagger, born 1758, Northowram Halifax, and or his son Thomas Jagger born 1784, Northowram Halifax. They lived Only House Farm, Northowram and worhipped at Coley Church (near Northowram, Halifax). Children's names incude John, William, Edward, Mary ,Martha, Charlotte, Jane, Sarah and Elizabeth. Thomas Jagger was a Stone dealer.

Dear All,

I have a number of letters and papers from an ancestor on board ship to Melbourne in 1841. In these he (John Knox) mentions his Aunt - Elizabeth Ann Jagger.

She was married to Samuel Jagger (don't know when) who, according to an official, document of 1832 (sealed with the seal of the Archbishop of York and King George) indicates she "...Administrate all and singular goods, rights, credits, cattles, and chattels of - Samuel Jagger your husband / late of Northowram aforesaid in the Diocese of York - Gentleman...etc.

The location, names and dates may be of interest.

John Knox was in Elizabeth's will as, in 1847 "...Elizabeth Ann Jagger late of Halifax..." and Alice Knox appear in a document of power of attorney prepared in Melbourne Australia on behalf of John Knox giving POA to (I think) his cousins:
John Craven of King Street Bradford
and John Brear, Licensed victualler of the Oak Inn near Bradford.

This mentions shares in the 'Sowerby Bridge Gas Company'.

I also have the last will and testament of Hannah Netherwood dated August 4 1803.

In this she, widowed, leaves property to '...the children of my sisters Ann and Elizabeth...'. Possibly Elizabeth Jagger.

Lastly, I have a share certificate dated 24 June 1802:

"Consolidated £3 per cent. Annuities" made out to Samuel Jagger for the sum of £817.10 - it seems based on his investment of £1,200.00.

That's all but let me know if you can help elucidate or if this has been useful
