Elias Jacobs was the son of Isaac Jacobs, and was a Lithuanian Jewish tailor who migrated, from what was then Russia, to England with his wife Sarah and their first two children, Esther and Samuel, in the 1860's. They had four more children in England (Jane, Israel, Etta and Sophie), and then moved to Wales. Much of our family stayed in the British Isles, but we now have branches in Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States.
