The Jeyes Family Heritage
Jeyes' Family Crest
Tenacious & Faithful
For 380 years, the name of Jeyes, has certainly remained true to the motto "Tenex et Fidelis" engraved on the family crest. Tenacious and Faithful to the profession of Pharmacy from John Jeyes 1635, to (Arthur) David Jeyes, who retired on his 70th birthday, 2015.
The Jeyes pharmacy business began in The Drapery, Northampton by our famous ancestors Philadelphus & John Jeyes. The partnership of the two brothers saw many inventions but none more important than the invention of the renowned Jeyes Fluid in 1870. Jeyes Fluid has achieved worldwide fame and still hold Royal Patronage today.
