Yes, this is all the same bunch. Jacobus' "niece," Elizabeth "Blagrove," was the daughter of Henry Blagrave (V) and Elizabeth Stokes (so she was actually Jacobus' wife's niece, since Susannah Stokes and Elizabeth Stokes were definitely sisters). Shortly after Jacobus died, Elizabeth Blagrave married Cyrus Minor, and she is then listed as Elizabeth Minor in Jacobus' estate records.

By the way, following Jacobus Christopher's death, his widow Susannah married a Nance (Frederick? I don't have my notes handy, and I can't remember his first name). Their marriage contract makes reference to Jacobus' estate.

Susannah (Stokes) Christopher and Elizabeth (Stokes) Blagrave are both listed in the will of their father, Young Stokes. Young must not have trusted his son-in-law Henry Blagrave (V) very much, because he put all sorts of stipulations in his will on daughter Elizabeth's inheritance, dependent upon Henry's behavior in managing Elizabeth's share of the estate.

If you'd like the more detailed info I have, please email me directly with your postal address, and I'll be happy to send you copies.
