Jacobs (1731-1785) was educated at Worcester College and afterwards at Merton College, Oxford.  He took Holy Orders in 1760 and was chaplain to the Duke of Chandos.  In December, 1760, he became one of the chaplains to King George III.  For many years, Jacobs was interested in studying the early works pertaining to British heraldry.  He wished to learn all he could about the biography and history of the illustrious heroes and patriots whose deeds were so largely responsible for the expansion and growth of the British Empire.  He was granted a license to print “A Complete English Peerage” which contained a “genealogical, biographical and historical account of peers of the realm.”  He apparently found genealogical charts rather boring compilations of names and dates as he included only 89 family charts in the three volumes.  His focus was on the history of each of the families he included in this work.
