The frequent journeys by JACKSONs from England to Ireland in the 1630s is interesting. At present, I have no knowledge about if or how these people in the chart beneath may or may not be related. There are certainly a few tantalizing mentions of JACKSONs in Coleraine prior to the 1630s, and their eventual full time settlement in Ireland happened soon after – if not before.

William

Liverpool

Coleraine

He was 60 years old. NOTE: He was not the same William JACKSON (abt 1575-1626) of Kirkby Lonsdale who was the grandfather of most of the later JACKSONs of Coleraine. His voyage is, however, a fit with the family narrative of many of the JACKSON men being merchants – drapers or Clothworkers –who travelled back and forth between England and Ireland in the early 1600s.

Richard

1633  Apr 10

Chester

Dublin

He was 30 years old.

John

Jackson

1593

1633 Aug 12

Chester

Carrickfergus

He was 40 years old. There is a slight possibility that this John JACKSON could be the father of the Robert JACKSON born btw 1619-1624 of Eccleston, Lancashire. This Robert JACKSON died 1679 – probably in Co. Down. His descendants held leases to land in the parish of Dundonald and Newtown, Co. Down. SEE: Ratliffe JACKSON beneath. His name is directly after John’s name on the register. They are likely related.

Ratliffe

Jackson

1579

1633 Aug 12

Chester

Carrickfergus

He was 54 years old. I cannot be certain that the name has been correctly transcribed, although it looks like Ratliffe. SEE: John JACKSON above. His name preceded Ratliffe’s name in the record. They are likely related.
