Events of the NovelsEdit
Jamie and other characters recall the Battle of Culloden in bits scattered throughout the series. For a closer look at these memories, see this page.
Appearances in the Lord John SeriesEdit
James is the English form of the Late Latin name Iacomus which was derived from Ιακωβος (Iakobos), the New Testament Greek form of the Hebrew name Ya'aqov (Jacob). Thus, the names James and Jacob derive from the same source. Possible meanings of the name Jacob include "holder of the heel", "supplanter", or "may God protect".
