This Samuel JACKSON was made a Warden in the Pewterers' Guild 1673, and then a Master in various years from 1684. SEE:  Chats on old Pewter.  H.J.L.J. Massé, M.A. New York. 1911.

The will was fascinating for me because there were more than a hundred people named in the list of beneficiaries. Figuring it all out would have been impossible without all the research included in Clan Jackson. The material on this site was compiled by Martin Jackson, and incorporates a great deal of research done by Raymond Irving Jackson. As always in this kind of work, we stand on the shoulders of others.

NOTE: Many of them can be followed on the family tree that I have compiled for the JACKSONs of Derbyshire.
NOTE: I have also posted a piece about him on my blog.

 

Samuel Jackson pewterer Will transcription

 

NOTE: I suspect that the word Cozen is used a little loosely when referring to relations in this will. I am working on hunches for some of this. It is rare to have a will with something in the neighbourhood of a hundred relations name. This makes it something like a Rosetta Stone, although there is still much more work required to figure it all out. As readers let me know more about these people, I will add it as soon as I can.

 

 

In the name of God amen.

I Samuel Jackson[1] Citizen and Pewterer of London being in good health of body and of sound and perfect mind and memory throughout the great goodness of God unto me but considering the uncertainty of this life and that nothing is more certain that death so nothing is more uncertain than the time of it, do therefore make and declare this my last will and testament as follows.

proved.... John Jackson and Philippa Walton executors...

 



[1] Samuel JACKSON (1634 – 1716), pewterer. Son of Thomas JACKSON (1600-1680), pewterer and Grace ROEBUCK. He was a London pewterer who worked about 1658-1716.   He was well known as an exporter of pewter to colonial America and elsewhere. His father was also a pewterer. According to the JACKSON tree information available at Clan JACKSON, he married Anne CLARK (1635-1701) and they had three children who predeceased him: Samuel (1660-1687) a pewterer, Thomas (1665-1668) and Mary (1668-1669).

[2] Imprimis translates as specially, particularly, specifically. Also “the first”

[3] John JACKSON, ironmonger in the Poultry, London. NOTE: He may be the John JACKSON b. 1650 who married Penelope COOK. This one was a son of John JACKSON (1604-1691) and Anne HOLT.

[4] Poultry was the site of St. Mildred Church.

[5] Margaret JACKSON, daughter of John JACKSON.

[6] Mary JACKSON, daughter of John JACKSON

[7] Thomas WALTON Amsterdam merchant, nephew of testator. This would suggest that Samuel had a sister whose name is not yet known to me, although it is intriguing that he had a Cousin MARY (b. 1640) who married a William WALTER – so this may be the connection. SOURCE: Clan Jackson, NOTE: A Thomas WALTER was part of The Guinea Company of London that did trade on the Gold Coast in 1655 and 1665. In 1647-48 he co-owned a ship named Star. WALTER is a surname that occurred frequently in Bristol port records of 1600-1601.

[8] Mary WALTON

[9] Thomas WALTON

[10] Joanna FORBES would seem to be the child of a second unnamed sister of the Testator.

[11] John FORBES, son of Joanna FORBES

[12] Anne FORBES, daughter of Joanna FORBES.

[13] John JACKSON late of Staffordshire. NOTE: In the will of Alexander JACKSON there is also a reference to a John JACKSON of Staffordshire

[14] John JACKSON, son of John JACKSON of Staffordshire.

[15] Elizabeth JACKSON, daughter of John JACKSON of Staffordshire.

[16] Moses JACKSON late of Sapperton, Co. Derby. The most likely candidate is the Moses JACKSON, son of William JACKSON (b 1595) and Eleanor SMITH. There is an earlier Moses JACKSON who may or may not be related who married Sept 8, 1587.

[17] Ann JACKSON, child of Moses JACKSON late of Sapperton, Co. Derby.

[18] Thomas JACKSON, child of Moses JACKSON late of Sapperton, Co. Derby.

[19] Elizabeth JACKSON, child of Moses JACKSON late of Sapperton, Co. Derby.

[20] Daniel JACKSON (1651-1707). This is the Rev. Daniel JACKSON of Santry who married Jane BRERETON.

[21] Rev. John JACKSON  (1688-1751), child of Rev. Daniel JACKSON and Jane BRERETON. He married Anne CASTLETOWN, daughter of Alderman and lived at Clonsagh, Co. Dublin, Ireland. They had five children.

[22] Rev. Daniel JACKSON (1687-1772), child of Rev. Daniel JACKSON and Jane BRERETON.He married Catherin DEERING (1711-1793 and was rector of Tulymore, and died at Abbey Street, Dublin, Ireland.

[23] Thomas JACKSON (d bef 1750), child of Rev. Daniel JACKSON and Jane BRERETON. I know nothing more about him.

[24] Joseph JACKSON (b 1646) was a grocer who married Lucretia PARKHURST. They had 8 children, several died before the date of this will.

[25] Joseph JACKSON. NOTE: Clan Jackson has a record of a Joseph JACKSON son of Joseph & Lucretia JACKSON who died as an infant. This deserves a second look.

[26] Daniel JACKSON (1682-1719) according to Clan Jackson records.

[27] Lucretia JACKSON b 1685 according to Clan Jackson records.

[28] Thomas JACKSON, cooper of London. NOTE: There is no shortage of Thomas JACKSONs related to the testator, but none that I can definitively say are this Thomas JACKSON.

[29] Mary BARLOW. NOTE: She may be a Mary JACKSON who married a BARLOW or she could be a child of a mother who was born a JACKSON. There was a Mary JACKSON who was an aunt of the testator and we do not know if she ever married.

[30] Elizabeth PATTEN née JACKSON (b 1674), daughter of Samuel JACKSON (b 1644) and Rebecca BYFIELD. SOURCE: Clan Jackson

[31] William PATTEN married Elizabeth JACKSON abt 1695. SOURCE: Clan Jackson

[32] Mary PATTEN

[36] Susanna BATES

[37] Elizabeth BATES

[38] Martha BATES

[39] Dorothy BATES. NOTE: She was not included in the Clan Jackson list of the children of Thomas BATES, but I have added her.

[41] Grace DAVIES née JACKSON (1654-1730). Daughter of John JACKSON (1604-1691) & Anne HOLT. She married William DAVIES aka DAVIS in June 1681.

[42] Twyford. I have some more work to do here. The Clan Jackson records include the Hannah JACKSON who married Thomas BATES living at Twyford, Hampshire, and her two sisters Grace who married William DAVIES and Sarah who married Richard LAVINGTON in Twyford, Berkshire.There is a Twyford in the civil parish of Aylsbury, Co.  Buckinghamshire: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twyford,_Buckinghamshire There is also a Twyford in the parish and Co, Hampshire: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twyford,_Hampshire There is also a Twyford in Derbyshire: http://www.derbyphotos.co.uk/areas_p_z/twyford.htm My contemporary Road Atlas also includes towns named Twyford in Buckinghamshire, Derbyshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Leicestershire, Norfolk and Wokingham – just to keep us on our toes.

[43] William DAVIES (1683-1764), son of William DAVIES and Grace JACKSON

[44] Anne DAVIES daughter of William DAVIES and Grace JACKSON.

[48] Sarah LAVINGTON jr.

[49] Dermott BROWNE. I do not know who he might be, but interestingly, treasury dispersements to “adventurers” in 1642 included a Hugh BROWNE and a Joseph JACKSON – both sheriffs from Bristol – in the same transaction.

[58] Hanna SMITH, child of Thomas SMITH.

[59] Thomas SMITH, deceased, late of Derby. NOTE: It is likely he was the husband of Ann JACKSON b 1598, daughter of Robert JACKSON (1549-1625) & Mary SMITH

[75] Ann SMITH, child of Humphrey SMITH.

[76] Mary SMITH, child of Humphrey SMITH.

[77] Mary JENKINSON? Of shoemakers Row near Algate London

[78] James JENKINSON? Son of Mary.

[79] NOTE: This word is hard to decode. It may be niece or it may be Heire. I really don’t know. If I can find her elsewhere, this will help.

[80] Phillipa WALTON. NOTE: The script is clear enough about her name, but it doesn’t fit with anything else that I know about. I suspect that she was a JACKSON, possibly father named Philip.

[109] Thomas CLARKE late of Lymington, Co. Southampton, England. NOTE: Samuel JACKSON, the testator was married to an Ann CLARKE. This may be one those “cousin” relations where the notion of cousin is quite elastic.

[112] Susanna CLARKE, child of Thomas CLARKE

[132] St. Mary’s Cole Church seems to have been a parish where his father resided as well:

'St. Mary Colechurch 105/21', Historical gazetteer of London before the Great Fire: Cheapside; parishes of All Hallows Honey Lane, St Martin Pomary, St Mary le Bow, St Mary Colechurch and St Pancras Soper Lane (1987), pp. 529-539. URL: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=5010

House 21E: Before the end of 1647 this house seems to have been in the possession of Colonel Thomas Jackson, citizen and pewterer, who already held the house adjacent to the N. (21F) and evidently hoped to take a single lease of the two properties. He was probably the Mr. Jackson who occupied 21E in 1638, when the house was valued at £10 a year. A view of Jackson's house in Old Jewry taken in 1647 concerns 21E and lists the following rooms: the cellar, 13 1/2 ft. by 12 ft. (4.11 m. by 3.66 m.); the shop and staircase, 19 ft. 3 in. by 11 ft. (5.88 m. by 3.35 m.); the hall over the shop, the staircase and a closet, 20 1/2 ft. by 12 ft. (6.25 m. by 3.66 m.); the kitchen, chamber, and staircase over the hall, 23 ft. by 12 ft. (7.01 m. by 3.66 m.); and a garret, 22 ft. by 12 ft. (6.71 m. by 3.66 m.). The property appears also to have included a yard (cf. 21F), but this was not mentioned in the view. In 1647-8 Jackson spent about £50 on repairing this house, and in 1649 he was offered a lease of 21E and 21F for a term of 26 years at £8 rent and for a fine of £130. Jackson did not accept the offer, but in 1650 did take a lease for the same fine and for a term of 27 1/2 years from 1649. He continued to occupy the property comprising 21E-F until the Great Fire and in both 1662-3 and 1666 his house was rated at 6 hearths.

[134] Jackson's Charity, From the minutes of vestry, under date 25 th July, A.D. 1718, it appears that Samuel Jackson, pewterer, late of the parish, by will, gave 30Z. to the parish to be laid out for the payment of 20s. to the poor of the parish on 22nd February yearly for ever.

It being found difficult to obtain a purchase of 20s. only, in lands or tenements pursuant to the will, it was agreed by the parish to add to the same the 50l, bequeathed by Richard Clarke, and to be received for a fine, and purchase therewith 100Z. Orphan Stock. This being done, a declaration of trust was executed by which 20s. of the yearly interest was given to the poor, as directed by the will of the said Samuel Jackson, 40s. per annum was paid on account of Clarke's charity, and the residue of the interest was directed to be distributed among the poor of the parish as deemed most convenient*
