Background

Hugh Jacka was the son of Hugh Jacka and Catherin [surname not given] married on 14 June 1679 in St Buryan, Cornwall, England.[1][2]

His father was was buried on 17 May 1735, in St Buryan, Cornwall, England.[3] His mother Catherine Jacka was buried 12 years later, as a widow, on 12 December 1747, also in St Buryan, Cornwall.[4] Not Will has yet been identified for either Hugh's father or mother.

The year before his father died, 1735, Hugh wrote a Will on 21st November 1734. As the oldest son he ,would receive his father’s land holdings as his inheritance. In his Will everything is bequeathed to his siblings rather than his offspring which might indicate that he had no living children at the time the Will was written. His father may have insisted on the Will being written up as it became apparent that his son Hugh no surviving heirs to pass on his property.
