Jane, I do not see any exact matches for you, but perhaps some of the
following may be helpful. (These Jacobs seem a bit "late" to be your
Jacque Verrier, especially if they are all the same "single man," but
they might be part of his family ....)
Page 12, there is a "Jacob [Verity?]" taxed (poor tax) 6 shillings as

two entries for Robert Verree.
The first of these "blanks" is on page 81, where Isacher Morris is

the second line of his entry he is taxed again for "Rents of Verree."
Likewise on page 82, same township and year, Richard Parsons is taxed

Wrightstown Township in 1763.
Page 44, Robert Verree is again taxed (poor tax) 12 pounds 3
shillings in Wrightstown Township in 1764.

for other areas of Bucks County where your James/Jacque Verrier might
