  • Notes  Name:
    • From Guy de Jaham:

      The family was ennobled in 1774 by the king of France Louis XV and "de" was added giving Nobility Title.


    • Also from Guy de Jaham:

      Despite the investigations, it was difficult to know the source of the family, they think that it comes from Scotland or Ireland.

      I knew a business man in England, Brian Duggand. He was interested about our name "de Jaham." Following the inquiries, he told that our family Jaham comes from Scotland. But at that time it was Graham. The family Graham de Monrose exists.

      Some members of the family left Scotland and went to France and changed Graham to Jaham. To understand you have to know the following:

      Marie Stuart 1st queen of Scotland married to Francois II king of France, went to France. She was queen of Scotland and France. Widowed in 1560, she returned to Scotland. Following the Religion's Wars and maginations from Elizabeth 1st Queen of England, Marie Stuart renounced and took refuge in England. Elizabeth put her in jail and later killed her.

      The oldest of Graham family in order to stay in his country became anglican. The other members of the family went to France.

      As you know, England was anglican and Scotland Catholic.
