Jacob and Elizabeth resided in Poplar, a section of London just east of the walls of London. This district faces the Thames River and was heavily influenced by the presence of the East and West India companies along the docks. The district was served by St Mattias, a chapelry of St. Dunstan's Parish. Adjoining Poplar were the districts
of Limehouse and Stepney. These districts all fall within the boundaries of the civil jurisdiction known as "Tower Hamlets" named for its proximity to the Tower of London.

Jacob was a timber merchant and before that a dealer in linen goods.
He also was a substantial property owner.
