About Jacques Jacobus Ault

Jacobus spent his childhood and began his education in Crefeld. When he was 11 years of age he went to Amsterdam where he became an apprentice to the goldsmith and watchmaker Heinrich Schmelz. He remained in Amsterdam until his father Jean (Johannes) died in Krefeld on 7 Aug 1714. Jacobus was then age 44 and he immediately went to Krefeld to help his stepmother Sophia Adams manage his father's business and estate. He returned to Amsterdam in December 1714 to marry Cora Schmelz and they both returned to Krefeld after the marriage.

Jacobus and Cora lived in Krefeld for 13 years (1716-1729) and during that period their 6 children were born. When the family returned to Amsterdam in 1729, Jacobus resumed his occupation as a goldsmith and watchmaker. The children resumed their education in the Amsterdam schools. When Jacobus retired, he and Cora moved to Zaandam where he died, age 88, on 9 Sept 1758.

Jacobus's other children remained in Europe except Johannes who became the Emigrant Ancestor of this line of Aults in North America.
