I have been reading some English christening records, dated
in the mid 1500s to early 1600s, which contain a
name that has me stumped. The names are written
in Latin, which is no surprise. So "John" is written
as "Johannes." However, I have seen several entries
for a male named "Johes" or "Johis." Is this "Joseph"
or some other name?
Also, is "Jacobus" Latin for "James"?
