My interest in the JACKSONs of Co. Down is to determine their connection in the late 1600s and early 1700s to the JACKSON families of Co. Meath, Ballybay, Armagh, and Londonderry. This tree includes the line leading to President Andrew JACKSON.
The trade of tanner that some of the early members of this family are engaged in is of interest to me since there are JACKSONs in the same time frame in Drogheda, Athy, Monaghan and Dublin who are also connected to the tanning trades.

Major update: June 30, 2014. Future updates will be entered into the version hosted at my Rootsweb Tree. This update has changed the page so much, it bears no resemblance to the previous iteration.
Update July 7, 2014. NOTE: It is hard to footnote updates, so I have simply entered them - in this case, more ORRs.
Update July 14. 2014 Updated footnote 24 & 58 - Ballysallagh and Ballyreagan connections. Also Rev Henry JACKSON of Banbridge.

July 9, 2014 CONJECTURE: Anthony, Richard and John/Robert JACKSON were supposedly from St. Michael's Parish, Eccleston, Lancashire between 1624 and 1630. Unfortunately the parish register for St. Michael's does not begin until 1659, so there are no available birth certificates. The birth dates and places used to validate most family trees were taken from secondary Quaker records. Given that these early histories allege that Anthony JACKSON (b 1628) and Richard JACKSON (b.1626) and John/Robert JACKSON (b. 1624) were supposedly brothers from Ecclestone, Lancashire, let’s suppose for a moment that they were. At very least, the shared birthplace is likely to be true, even if their relationship as brothers may not pass the sniff test when it comes to verification.

If all three did come from Ecclestone, then it should be of special interest that in 1640, a Robert JACKSON was a 21 year old student at Trinity. This would mean that he was born abt 1619. His father was a yeoman from Little Eccleston named John. JACKSON Perhaps this explains some of the John/Robert confusion in the early trees. Certainly, the yeoman class, with a parent rich enough to send a son to Trinity, is the right class of family to be a likely fit with the future Irish Quaker Jackson line, as well as the Co. Down line descending from a Robert JACKSON, and is much more credible than the supposed connection to Sir Anthony JACKSON of Killingwolds.

If this conjecture has feet, then a record at the National Archives is pertinent: DDX 15/2  12 Jun. 1600. Assignment of Lease: for £70: Rychard Burgh of Larbryck, gent., to John Jackson of the Walle in Little Eccleston, husbandman -- messuage in Little Eccleston called the Wall, in the tenure of J.J. & Anne his mother -- Leased 8 May 1595 by the Queen to Peter Proby of London, gent., together with other property in Little Eccleston, late belonging to the Chantry at the Altar in Ormskirk. Assigned to Thomas Burgh, esq., decd. brother of R.B. & one of the Queen's Gentlemen Ushers. Bequeathed to R.B. Witn: William Orrell, John Walche, John France, John Syme.

 

Descendants of Robert JACKSON

JACKSONs who start out with land holdings and/or residency in the Parish of Dundonald[1], Co Down

 

This tree has been patched together using the glue of at least half a dozen hunches. As with many such trees, each entry is no better than the source material that buttresses it. I will improve on the level of verification as I learn more, but in the meantime, I advise caution.

  

By starting this tree with a Robert JACKSON, I am choosing a different starting root than those described in Burkes[2] and in The Library of Congress and in many of the Quaker JACKSON records. Those versions include Sir Anthony JACKSON (1599-1666), who was a Church of England royalist, and was alleged to be the father of three brothers who came to Ireland with Cromwell and were awarded land grants. According to those trees, one of these sons, a John JACKSON (or Robert in some versions), became a Presbyterian and started this Co. Down line, while his brothers Anthony JACKSON and Richard JACKSON became Quakers. Over the past hundred years, there has been increasing doubt about the connection of Sir Anthony JACKSON to any of these three men, and I am now totally on the side of the doubters. See: my blog post: The Dog That Didn’t Bark as well as tree posted on The Quaker JACKSONs. Readers might also note that this version also differs from the one outlined by D.J. McCarthy in The Ulster JACKSONs. D.J. McCarthy. I have been able to build on his research, and his book did set me on some productive paths, but I have reached different conclusions.

 

In the following quote from John Spenser Bassett's "Life of Andrew Jackson", I have bolded the names of townlands which frequently crop up in probates of JACKSON wills and in the family tree that follows:

 

A memorandum preserved by Jackson among his papers and without evidence of its reliability asserts that there were four brothers in Ireland by the name of Jackson each of whom occupied as freeholder "a large farm." Andrew, the youngest, lived near Castlereagh and sold his property in 1765 and went to America where he landed at Charleston, S. C, and removed to the back country. [NOTE: President Andrew JACKSON’s father] All of these Jacksons. it declared, were devoted to the Established Kirk of Scotland and were noted for their hospitality. Castlereagh is about one hundred and twenty-five miles from Carrickfergus whence Jackson and Crawford sailed for America. One brother " his name is not given " lived at Ballynisca. in the parish of Car-Donnell [NOTE: This is the Parish of Dundonald] and was father of Samuel Jackson, who became senior partner in the Philadelphia firm of Jackson and Bayard, with whom William Patterson, of Baltimore, lived when a youth. Another brother, name not given, lived at Knocknagoney, parish of Holywood, and his daughter married James Suffern, of New York, a brother of John Suffern, a prominent state politician. The fourth brother, whose name is not mentioned, lived at Bally Willy, parish of Bangor, and was called "Laird Jackson." This memorandum could have been prepared after the appearance of Reid*s book [NOTE: Major John Reid] , and there is an evident purpose to enhance Jackson's social standing.

 

Finally, there are sites which specialize in the histories of both Stonewall JACKSON and President Andrew JACKSON. They will do a more complete job of adding details about the families who emigrated to America. My aim has been to simply focus on the JACKSON lines in Ireland, and this tree only includes the links preceding President Andrew JACKSON. Stonewall JACKSON descends from another line, a Thomas JACKSON (1656-1716) who resided at Killinure, Co. Down outside of Saintfield, another place where there were numerous JACKSONs in the early 1700s..

 

The version of this tree at Rootsweb includes even more source material, and it will always be the most up-to-date version. Some footnotes here have yet to have info added in. If I waited until I had it all nailed down, it would never get posted. If readers can add to what I have, I would be grateful to learn more.

[1] Dundonald is a parish in Co. DOWN where several centuries of JACKSONs resided. It was part of the Elizabethan plantation, and the landlords were Clandeboyes.

[2] The Killingswold connection, erroneous as it is, is cited in reference to the GREER-JACKSON line in: Sir Bernard Burke, Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Landed Gentry of Ireland, London, 1912. Elizabeth, only child of William Jackson (descended from Richard Jackson, of Killingwold Grove, near Beyerley, co. York. To this family the late Gen. Andrew Jackson, President of the United States, and the late " Stonewall " Jackson, -the celebrated Confederate General; belonged.

[3] Robert JACKSON In alternate versions that can be found on the web, John JACKSON is used in lieu of Robert JACKSON. The deeds records show a Robert as the first known Irish-based resident in this line. I have deleted the birth date that these sources had (1624 in Ecclestone, Lancashire) since it would make him age 17 at the birth of his first child. I have also detached him from Sir Anthony JACKSON, a connection that exists in trees based on Proceedings of the Sesqui-Centennial Gathering of the descendants of Isaac and Ann Jackson at Harmony Grove, 1875. There is still a wobbly bit here in that the ages of his children, ranging as they do over a span of 38 years, represents a biological challenge that is most unlikely. Either there were two wives – which is not unlikely – or else something is off.

Down.

[4] Janet JACKSON (1641-1695). Her husband's grave marker is the source for both her birth and death dates. John was born in 1639 and died on 16 Jun 1716. He was of Ballyskeagh, Parish of Dundonald, Co. Down, Ireland aged 77. They had eight children: Mary, Gilbert, Samuel, Jean, Sarah, Hugh, John and James. Her placement as a daughter of Robert JACKSON is based on the will of her brother James.

[5] John JACKSON (1639-1716).

·        At present, I am working on the assumption that this John is not a son of the Robert who died 1679. The 1711 will of James JACKSON is key to unravelling much of this, but it lacks some critical punctuation, It is possible that the Ballysekagh reference was to John's son Gilbert and not to John. If this is the case, then my interpretation is suspect.

It was situated in Mill Street, at the corner of the old road to Comber.... The title "Gilbert Jackson, tanner", still remains on an old tombstone in Novilla Cemetry; and the original records of the First Presbyterian Church, bear his name as a trustee of that Church. He died in 1723 and the tanyard was afterwards closed for several years, from the death of a manager. NOTE: The tannery was likely already established 3 generations earlier with Robert JACKSON father of the testator James JACKSON.

One of his grandsons was likely the one involved in the Battle of Saintfield in 1798: Harry Monro, of Lisburn, accompanied by a considerable body of men, joined Dr. Jackson, of Newtownards, and those whom he led, shortly after the destruction of McKee and his family. SOURCE Betsy Gray.

[59] Katherine McKINNEY (-1727) NOTE: The research that this rests on, bases on transcriptions of wills, says that she came from Dundalk Parish. I can find no such parish in Co. Down. I suspect that Dundonald is much more likely, since this is also the parish that her husband came from. Her death date comes from the date of her will and the date of the probate.

[60] Dr.  Joseph JACKSON

·        SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) has a record #22369  that shows David JACKSON (1930-Aug 1911) being the son Of Joseph JACKSON & Lady Mary CARR. It also shows that David died at Lancaster, Pennsylvania, America.

·        Genealogy of the Jackson Family, 1890. Prepared by Hugh Parks Jackson assisted by Hugh Hogue Thompson, D.D. and James R. Jackson, Esq. , 1890. p7. This genealogy posits a second wife making Mary Carr the third wife. Hugh, Robert & David are assigned to this second wife.  Dr. Jackson located first at Carrickfergus and afterwards at Limavady. He was married three times. What were the names of his first and second wives could not be ascertained ; but his third wife was Lady Mary Carr, sister of Lord James Carr. She first married a man by the name of Jackson and had one son — Hugh. Her husband died, and she then became the third wife of Dr. Joseph Jackson, and was thus married to two men, not related, by the name of Jackson. .

·        NOTE: The problem with the 1st three sons being attributed as the children of the 2nd wife  is that son David is older than his younger brother Andrew.

·        There has been mention of a wife of Dr. Joseph JACKSON whose name is unknown. It may be that this sheds light on it: ROD 141-429-96062. Feb 5, 1748.

·       NOTES & Queries 1891: Will any of your readers kindly oblige me with information relative to the relationship which existed between the Rev. Henry Jackson, who was Presbyterian minister at Banbridge, co. Down, Ireland, from November, 1743, to February, 1795, in which year he died, and General Jackson, President of the United States. General Jackson's father emigrated to the North American colonies from Tubbermore, near Magherafelt, Ireland. NOTE: Curiously, Tubbermore is another focal point for JACKSONs – the ones associated with Coleraine. The question asked in 1891 about Rev. Henry JACKSON is still one that I cannot answer.

·        Genealogy of the Jackson Family, 1890 <https://archive.org/details/genealogyofjacks00injack>. Prepared by Hugh Parks Jackson assisted by Hugh Hogue Thompson, D.D. and James R. Jackson, Esq. , 1890. p10

Dr. Joseph Jackson, by his first wife, had one child, Andrew, who became one of what were called 'United Men."

They were Republicans and were hostile to the Government in certain measures, and had to flee his native countrv at a moment's warning. He came with his wife and two sons, Hugh and Robert, to South Carolina, and located over the North Carolina line in the "Wax Haw Settlement. " They were penniless, having suddenly and secretly to escape from Ireland, forsaking all they had. The Government confiscated his property.

This was in the year 1765, and he died not many years afterwards, leaving his wife and family in limited circumstances. No correspondence passed between him and his friends living in Ireland ; hence all trace of him and his family was lost to his relatives. On March 15th, 1767, another son was born in North Carolina, who was called Andrew, and he in 1828, or rather 1829, became the President of the United States. He is known as "Old Hickory."

NOTE: There are issues with this excerpt, the greatest being that Andrew had three brothers, all of them sons of Dr. Joseph JACKSON and Elizabeth VANCE. Also, the United Irishmen came later in Ireland’s history, although it is not unlikely that the young Andrew was involved in politically motivated actions that provoked his sudden departure. Had his family approved, they would likely have stayed in contact.

·        Genealogy of the Jackson Family, 1890. Prepared by Hugh Parks Jackson assisted by Hugh Hogue Thompson, D.D. and James R. Jackson, Esq. , 1890. p7  One daughter, named Margaret, was the fruit of this marriage [CARR]. She was born in 1746. She married against her parents' wishes, William McCaughey, a weaver, at Newtown, Limavady, Ireland, Nov. 28th, 1769, and emigrated to America in 1773. Her mother was of the nobility.; the McCaugheys were plebians, which explains the above named opposition.

I have discarded all that, and now believe that the Thomas JACKSON whose will was probated in 1713 had no children. The name Isaac is a better fit with the Quaker line of JACKSONs, although there is likely overlap between the two families.
