    -----------------

    Daniel Joseph Jaffé’s son Joseph John Jaffé (1843-1934), known[1] to his family as “John”, he married on 3 June 1873 Anna Emilie Gluge (c. 1845 – 1942). While in Belfast he was President of the Chamber of Commerce, along with their other homes in Monte Carlo and Neufchatel, he had the “Villa Jaffé” built on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice and used to take holidays there c. 1885-1900, while he was hosting guests such as Henry James or Marcel Proust.
    According to the 1880 Belfast Street Directory, John Jaffé used to live in Cambridge Villas, while his brother Otto Jaffé was in Canadian Villas, and his brother Alfred Jaffé was in Strandtown (county Down, 2 miles away from Belfast).
    John Jaffé gave several books bounds with the arms of Napoléon I to the "Bibliothèque du chevalier de Cessole" (villa Masséna in Nice)[2]. With the advice of Wilhelm von Bode, he built with his wife a collection of Dutch and English paintings[3]. The villa was later “mise sous séquestre” by the Vichy government, and it was later destroyed. King George V and Queen Mary congratulated the couple for its Diamond Wedding anniversary.
