Jacob Genealogy & History

The Jacob family has three mottos: not for ourselves alone, defend your acquisitions, and only against the proud. This is perhaps because of the popularity of the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic patriarch Jacob. The name is also frequently used as a given (or first) name. Jacob comes from the ancient Hebrew word yaakov, meaning following after. Jacob family history finds that the first American Jacob was Nicholas Jacob, who arrived in Hingham, Massachusetts, in 1633. Jacob genealogy includes Louis XVI furniture-maker Georges Jacob; English composer Gordon Jacob; Nobel Prize-winning geneticist Fran�ois�Jacob; and French poet, painter, writer, and critic Max Jacob.
