The occupation of weaver or draper occurs frequently enough that it is worthy of study. It may also tie in to the family story that the OLIVERs who were ancestors of Sir Thomas JACKSON came from the Netherlands where they had sought refuge after fleeing from France and that they subsequently served under King William at the time of the Battle of the Boyne in 1690.

Oliver, Robert

He assured David Wright, that he might earn 40S. sterling a month by easy labour, and told Robert Oliver, who is a linen weaver, that he would get a guinea sterling for weaving a ten hundred piece of cloth, which according to the labour of a good workman in linen of that sort, would produce above £100 sterling a year. It was likewise represented as a most powerful and specious argument of persuasion that they would have neither rent or tithes to pay in that country, and would live happily from the time they landed there.
