    The Jagger surname is a West Yorkshire occupational name that comes from the Middle English "Jagger", meaning a carter or peddler. All or most present-day Jaggers most probably came from Stainland in the parish of Halifax, Yorkshire. The English and Welsh census of 1891 notes that 90 percent of all Jaggers were still living in Yorkshire.

    Michael Philip Jagger was born July 26, 1943, at Livingstone Hospital, Dartford, Kent. Jagger's father and grandfather are (as an earlier poster has indicated) Basil Fanshawe "Joe" Jagger (1913-2006) born in Wickham, Bishop, England, and David Ernest Jagger, who was born in April 1880 in Whitehaven, Cumberland, Cumbria, England.

    Jagger's great great grandfather, David Jagger was born in Bottoms, Morley, Yorkshire, in 1845, while his great great maternal grandmother, Sidwell Elizabeth Ingram, was born in 1847 in Cornwall. A great, great, great grandfather, Thomas Jagger, was married in Batley, Yorkshire, in 1804.

    His mother, Eva Ernsley Mary Scutts (1913-2000), was most probably from Kent since Mick's maternal grandfather, Alfred Charles Scutts, a boat builder, was born in Northfleet, Kent, in 1856. A maternal great grandfather, Alfred Henry Scutts, was from Ockley, Surrey.

    Since the the Prince of Wales knighted Jagger in December 2003 for his Services to Music that means he has never immigrated to the United States, although Mick's wife, Jerry Hall, is a native Texan. Wikipedia notes that Jagger originally sang in the church choir, and the Rolling Stones got their start playing without pay in jazz clubs in the early 1960s.
