JF Merchant of Sidmouth
By 1730 Follett & Jackson were trading from Topsham to Trepassy, NFLD

1741-44 JF & family moved to Topsham possibly dictated by business, but also possibly because of the arrival in Topsham of Presbyterian Minister, Rev. Aaron Pitts.
1754 Probably he was the JF who petitioned the Privy Council for leave for William Jackson, Merchant of Topsham to export to Newfoundland on the ship "George", Samuel Hook, master despite an embargo?
JF & family were all Dissenters.
1749 Acquired some dwellings in White St "for ever".
Notes 1771 Death presumed to be before this date when Presbyterian Records begin in Topsham
