John Jay (1745-1829) came from a Huguenot family which settled in New York in 1686; a delegate to the New York Provincial Congress in 1776, he was appointed the following year Chief Justice of New York; in 1779 he was sent to Spain as minister plenipotentiary; appointed American Commissioner for the negotiation of peace with Great Britain, he stayed in Europe until the treaty was signed. Jay held a number of other important public offices. He was Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (1789-95), Special Envoy to Great Britain (1794-95), Governor of New York (1795-1801). His name is linked in particular to the " Jay-Grenville Treaty " of 1794 between the United States and Great Britain which provided, among other things, that Detroit and the western American forts, held by the British since the Revolution, should be given over by the British to the Americans in 1796.
