Various manuscript notes were added to the pedigree:
The above is taken from a manuscript pedigree compiled by Edward Jacob of Tunbridge Wells, a grandson of Edward Jacob of Faversham, in about 1851. Much of the information was taken from Hasted's History of Kent. It appears, however, that manuscript sources were used at the time, c1851. One manuscript was either compiled by John Jacob (1765-1840 ), Edward's father, or by him copied from a manuscript of the Solly family. This is unclear.
