Jack Andrews (GB)*
b c 1794 (Joe Andrews - Mare, by Highflyer). Sire Line Eclipse. Family 9. Bred by Mr Lord he was imported by William Lightfoot of Sandy Point, Virginia, in 1803.
Jack of Diamonds (GB)*
[Spotswood's] b c 1754c (Young Hautboy). Sire Line Darcy's White Turk. His dam has not been identified. He stood in the Rappahannock Valley of Virginia from around 1758 to 1770 and sired the eighth dam of Lexington (b c 1850 Boston). The pedigree given in the American Stud Book for Jack of Diamonds* was a result of confusing Jack of Diamonds* with Spotswood's Diana*, who herself was confused with Bland's Duchess, who in turn was said by the American Stud Book to have also been called Diamond.
b c 1758 (Regulus - Red Rose, by Devonshire Blacklegs). Sire Line Godolphin Arabian. Family 6. Bred in Yorkshire by Thomas Duncombe of Helmsley Park, he was later purchased by Buckle & Hudson. He won the Gold Cup at Chester and a King's Plate at Nottingham before breaking down in next engagement. Despite covering very few well-bred mares he got some good runners, including Mr. Wentworth's King's Plate winner Achilles (b c 1767). He was said to have sired a great number of very fine Hunters and Road-Horses and was judged the best Country Stallion in the Kingdom.
[Old] b c 1738 (Godolphin Arabian - Amorett, by Bartlet's Childers). Sire Line Godolphin Arabian. Family 15. Bred by Lord Godolphin he was later owned by Lord Middleton and Benjamin Rogers and covered at Mickleham, Surrey. He sired Janus* (ch c 1746).
[Little Janus or Stiff Dick] ch c 1746 (Old Janus - Mare, by Fox - Mare, by Bald Galloway). Sire Line Godolphin Arabian. Janus was bred by Anthony Langley Swymmer in whose colours he ran in England from 1750 through 1752. During 1751 he recorded wins in a 5yo plate at Winchester and two weeks later in a 5yo plate at Salisbury. Despite problems with a "foul sinew" (presumably a bowed tendon) he started another four times finishing second three times and third once. Following his retirement from the turf he spent the following two years in the stud of Thomas Sims at Mostone, near Oxford. Purchased by Mordecai Booth he was sent to Virginia in 1756. Remaining with Booth in Gloucester County until 1760, he ran at least once, beating Valiant* over four miles in 1757. He passed through a number of owners in Virginia, then spent a couple of years in North Carolina before heading back to Virginia into the hands of John Goode of Chesterfield County. Goode sold him to W Barnes of Halifax County, North Carolina, in 1777 although he bought him back at the age of 34 and agreed to give £150 Virginia currency for him provided he was safely delivered at his stable in the winter of 1779 or 1780. Janus started for the stable of Mr Goode progressing as far as the stable of Colonel Haynes where he died in 1780. Harrison notes that his grandam, the Bald Galloway mare, may have been a brown mare named Mandaine bred by Mr Bartlet. Mandaine is mentioned in an advertisement [Pond 1755] for Surly, a brown horse bred by the Earl of Portmore, as the dam of Surly's sire, a Son of Fox. It is possible that this Son of Fox is the horse Lord Portmore raced as Victorious in 1730 and 1731, and whose pedigree is given in the General Stud Book, starting with the 1793 edition, as by Fox - Bald Galloway - Champion [E2:67].
gr c 1749 (Old Standard - Mare, by Beaufort Arabian). Sire Line Belgrade Turk. Family 102.
b c 1772 (Eclipse - Miss Rose, by Spectator). Sire Line Eclipse. Family 13. Bred by the Duke of Cumberland he was a fairly successful stallion and got, among others, Mendoza* (b c 1788) and Tup* (b c 1796).
Jeff Davis (USA)
ch c 1847 (Hero - Marigold*, by Cain). Sire Line King Herod. Family 9-c. He sired Nannie McNairy (ch f 1863).
b c 1834 (Sultan - My Lady, by Comus). Sire Line Selim. Family 8-k. Owned by Lord Chesterfield he won the Champagne Stakes in 1836. He sired Flight (ch f 1846).
Jeremy Diddler (GB)
br c 1839 (Jerry - Marpessa, by Muley). Sire Line Matchem. Family 3-m. A half-brother to Pocahontas (b f 1837 Glencoe), he sired the dam of the Goodwood Cup winner Rogerthorpe (b c 1853 The Hero).
br c 1842 (Jerry - Turquoise, by Selim). Sire Line Matchem. Family 1-e. Winner of the Criterion Stakes he sired the Two Thousand Guineas and Goodwood Cup winner The Promised Land (b c 1856) and the Criterion Stakes winner The Happy Land (br c 1855).
bl c 1821 (Smolensko - Louisa, by Orville). Sire Line Matchem. Family 15.
c 1701 (Byerley Turk - Charming Jenny, by Spanker). Sire Line Byerley Turk. Family 6.
[Heneage's] br c 1720c (Jigg - Jigg Mare, by Jigg). Sire Line Byerley Turk. Family 69. The General Stud Book estimates his year of birth as "1720 (about)" and says his sire was the Halifax Goliah [GSB 1:107] however since the Halifax Goliah was foaled in 1722 either Jigg's year of birth or his sire must be incorrect. Available evidence indicates that Goliah is not his sire. A pedigree given by Mr Cheny for Silvertail says "Silvertail was got by the Mr. Heneage's White-Nose. White-Nose, which was out of the Dam of his Brown Horse called Jigg, Son of Old Jigg, and the Hall Arabian" [Racing Calender 1744:xxiv, xxv]. This suggests that Heneage's Jigg was sired by Old Jigg. The close inbreeding of this pedigree may have compelled the compilers of the General Stud Book to avoid it. Heneage's Jigg ran in 1728 at Alford, Lincolnshire, placing second for a plate of £25 which was won by the Duke of Ancaster's Pert [Buckhunter] (ch c Ely Turk). In 1738 He covered at the stud of Mr Hildyard at North Ousby, near Louth in Lincolnshire, for a fee of half a guinea. An unnamed daughter of Heneage's Jigg produced four winners, Hunt's Jigg (ch c 1741 Bolton Goliah), Jigg-of-Jiggs (br c 1745 Hunt's Jigg), Hunt's Spanker (b c 1747 Bolton Goliah) and Hunt's Fox (b c 1749 Bolton Goliah).
Jim Bell (USA)
b c 1839 (Frank - Jonquil, by Little John - Blaze, by Kennedy's Diomed - Purity, by Spread Eagle* - Mare, by Dictator - Mare, by Royal Oak - McPherson's TB mare). Sire Line King Herod. He sired the second dam of Fleetfoot (ch f 1864 Mahomet).
Joe Andrews (GB)
b c 1778 (Eclipse - Amaranda, by Omnium). Sire Line Eclipse. Family 4-b.
John Blount (USA)
b c 1837 (Marion - Maid of the Brook, by Sir Alfred - Mare, by Phenomenon - Mare, by Diomed* - Mare, by Shark* - Mare, by Medley* - TB mare). Sire Line King Herod. He sired Puss (ch f 1848).
John Bull (GB)
ch c 1789 (Fortitude - Xantippe, by Eclipse). Sire Line King Herod. Family 13. Bred by the 1st Earl Grosvenor, he won the Derby Stakes. He sired Admiral Nelson* (br c 1795) and Ardrossan (b c 1809). There is no evidence that this horse came to America, since he was in the stud in England until 1812, when he was 23. A horse noted in John Tayloe's stud book as John Bull* (ro c 1796) imported in 1799, of the "Flanders breed," was bred by Mr Lowe. John Randolph of Roanoke described the horse as "coach-bred."
John O' Gaunt (GB)
ch c 1838 (Taurus - Mona, by Partisan). Sire Line Beningbrough. Family 9-a. He sired the Doncaster Cup winner Hungerford (ch c 1848).
John R. Grymes (USA)
gr c 1837 (Leviathan* - Fanny Jarman, by Mercury). Sire Line Beningbrough. Family 9-a. He sired Sally Ward (gr f 1842).
Jolly Friar (USA)
ch c 1783 (Eaton's Garrick - Mare, by Janus* - Hamilton's Mare*, by Snap). Sire Line Godolphin Arabian. Bred by James C Fawcett and owned by Rich Bennehen of North Carolina he was a half brother to Hamilton's Fox and sire of Hampton's Twigg (b c 1810).
Jolly Roger (GB)
[Roger of the Vale] ch c 1741 (Roundhead - Sister to Miss Barforth, by Croft's Partner). Sire Line Darley Arabian. Family 2. Bred by John Holme he was owned by Selden Craddock. Although erroneously identified as the horse named Jolly Roger who became a successful stallion in colonial America this colt was not exported.
Jolly Roger (GB)*
ch c 1743 (Stamford's Mogul - Mare, by Partner. Sire Line Godolphin Arabian. He was imported by John Spotswood and his brother-in-law Colonel Bernard Moore with Creeping Kate in 1751. The Partner mare is as yet unidentified. Jolly Roger* stood the seasons 1752-58 at Spotswood's farm in Spotsylvania County, 1759-65 at Wormeley's farm in Middlesex County, 1766 at Charles Harrison's in Prince George County, 1767 at Freeman's Brook in Sussex County, 1768-69 at Allen's Mill, Brunswick County, all in Virginia. He sired the unnamed mares who became the taproots of two American mare families: A26 and A 51. Jolly Roger* died in 1769. Jolly Roger* was a distinguished sire and appears as a frequent cross in old Virginia pedigrees. The American Stud Book erroneously shows Jolly Roger* to be Roger of the Vale, an English horse. However, in a letter by John Baylor dated 2 August 1761 (ten years after Jolly Roger's importation), Baylor describes Jolly Roger, formerly owned by the Duke of Kingston, as running well in 1749, as is described in the Racing Calendars of the day. The pedigree given in the Racing Calendar reads by Mogul - Partner, which is the source of the pedigree given here. Another certificate gives the horse's importer as John Spotswood and his brother-in-law Bernard Moore in 1751. When the American Stud Book was being compiled the letters were unknown, and at the time, Randolph of Roanoke attempted to match Jolly Roger* with a horse in the General Stud Book. The only colt he could find who corresponded with the date was Roger of the Vale, and an explanation for his name change was never provided.
