It has not yet been determined what the exact relationship between J. Donat Fife and the rest of the Fife family is, see [SSNE 4779], [SSNE 708], [SSNE 782] and [SSNE 6679]. It is probably that J. Donat was either the son of James [SSNE 4779] or Donat [SSNE 782] although he does not appear in the Svensk Biografisk Lexicon. It was perhaps this man who acquired a house at the back of the castle in Stockholm in 1658.
