Col Sydney Long Jacob was my Great grandfather. He was a fascinating man. I would love to know more about him as a Brethren. If one anyone has more information, please let me know. My understand was that he was quite prominent within it.

Peter Conlan's article, ' "What are you doing for Christ in Birmingham?" The History, Strategy, and Legacy of a Missional Brethren Assembly Founded by Alexis Jacob in 1924' is a chapter in Neil Dickson, T.J. Marinello [eds], The Brethren and the Church, (Glasgow: BAHN, 2020) pp.217-227, and contains quite a bit of information about the Jacob family, including Sydney Long Jacob.
