I am attempting to trace the origins and ancestry of a 4 x Great-Grandfather, Jacques Philippe DOUET, who was apparently a medical doctor in Jamaica at the beginning of the 19th century. I am descended from his daughter, Constantia Jane Maria DOUET, who was born in Jamaica in 1811. Does anyone have information about J P DOUET's origins, which I imagine to have been in France?

There are 16 results for Jacques Philippe Douet on FamilySearch (registration required but free).

The one with the most similar name was married to Elizabeth and they had a daughter Clara Elizabeth in 1805. The dates seem consistent with your ancestor. I'll let you explore.

As for the name, it does sound French but I would not ignore other French speaking regions like Belgium, Québec or Louisiana.
