NOTE: Not all these entries showed up when I did a computersearch of the on-line text, but I think I have found all of them after a careful read of the entire book. I have also assembled a page ofpotential trees associated with these JACKSONs. The references in the footnotes to the Coleraine tree mean that these can be found in two places. At my Rootsweb version of the tree (which is the most frequently updated) as well as on my website The Silver Bowl. SEE:Jacksons of Coleraine.
WHITTINGTON— not to be confused with Withington, near Manchester, nor Whittingham, near Preston — is a pretty village situate in extreme North-East Lancashire, about one-and- a-half miles from Kirkby Lonsdale. Its Church, dedicated to S. Michael, is known to have been in existence in the fourteenth century. The Parish of Whittington comprises 4,327 acres, including the townships of Newton, Docker, and Whittington, and contains a population of 339. The adjoining parishes on the Westmorland side are Burton and Kirkby Lonsdale, and on the Lancashire side Tun- stall, Melling, and Warton. The Parish Registers share, with Whalley and Farnworth (near Widnes), the honour of commencing in 1538 — the year appointed by Vicar-General Cromwell.
The two earliest volumes have been wholly transcribed and a small part of the earliest Marriage Register kept under Lord Hardwicke's Act. The first volume comprises Christenings, Burials, and Weddings, 1538-1665, and the second volume contains Christenings and Burials 1665- 1764, and Weddings up to 1753. The two earlier volumes measure twelve inches by eight inches each ; the elder volume contains 148 paper leaves, very much worn at the edges, the later volume 69 parchment leaves, in good preservation : both are bound in vellum. The first "Lord Hardwicke" Marriage Register is also in excellent preservation. There are no Chapelries in the Parish.
 Marie is the first born child of Richard JACKSON 9abt 1602-abt 1680) with his second wife Jane. She was buried two days after she was christened. She is in the Coleraine Tree.
 I am still running down hunches about him including his possible connection to the Rev. Daniel JACKSON, Vicar of Santry. He is in the Coleraine Tree.
 I am still running down hunches about him including whether he might be the Roger JACKSON mentioned in the Carlow Trees. He is in the Coleraine Tree.
 Rev. Leonard JACKSON is well documented. He is in the Coleraine Tree.
 I know nothing more about her other than her birth. She is in the Coleraine Tree.
 I suspect that she is the Abigail JACKSON who married Rowland BURROW in 1674/75. She is in the Coleraine Tree.
 Richard JACKSON (abt 1602-abt1680). He is in the Coleraine Tree.
 Marie died 2 days after she was baptised. She is in the Coleraine Tree.
 I have her being born in 1648 – but no source was given as to why I decided that. It may have been an error. She is in the Coleraine Tree.
 This is an odd placement in the burials since it looks more like the record of a marriage. But it is as it shows in the publication and is the only one that looks like this as they were recorded in these years.
 Richard JACKSON – NOTE: Seven children by his second wife are recorded in this Registry.
 Oliver NORTH (?-1722/23) and Jennet JACKSON had a son, Richard. SOURCE: A Genealogical and Heraldic Dictionary of the Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland. Part II. The Norths have had estates in Docker and Newton, in the parish of Whittington from time immemorial, and there are numerous records of them in the registers (some of the oldest and best kept in the county) from their commencement in the reign of Henry VIII. This son: Richard North, Esq. of Newton, baptised 18 Jan. 1684, who s. his cousin, Abigail Jackson, of Jackson's Hall, in her estates in England and Ireland Subsequently: The present R.-T. North (b. 1782), Esq., sold, about forty years ago[NOTE abt. 1820], the Jackson's Hall estate, as well as almost all the Irish property, reserving however 1,000 acres in the co. of Cavan. This may be significant since we know that Samuel JACKSON (1631-1705) had holdings in Co. Cavan
