i was hunting for some one called james baptised around 1685 in hampshire and came accros a Jacobus around the right time.
doing a little digging i found
A Jacobus is an English gold coin of the reign of James I, worth 25 shillings. The name of the coin comes from the Latin inscription surrounding the King's head on the obverse of the coin, IACOBUS D G MAG BRIT FRA ET HI REX (James by the grace of God ruler of Britain, France, and Ireland, King).
further hunting led to a very informative article on http://www.from-ireland.net/irish-names/latin-names-in-engli...
which has a very handy explanation and name list for Latin / English name usage and well worth book marking
perhaps some of you could add your own variations for names here that will be useful to us all
just a few i picked out for this message are
Jacobus = James or Jacob
Adalbertus = Albert or George
Gratia = Grace
Samuelem = Samuel
so if you are looking for that alousife record try looking for the name from the above article
