This tree was first posted in 2009, but I have done a major overhaul of this page. This branch of JACKSONs starts in Yorkshire/Westmorland/Lancashire and connects to JACKSONs who were significant players during the Siege of Derry amongst other events. It is also the family tree that leads to Richard JACKSON of Forkhill. I have much to learn about this line of JACKSONs and hope that kind readers will help me out.

A Jackson line in Coleraine

Updated February 5, 2015.

This tree has been built over the past decade. Some sources are more reliable than others. All entries should be checked and double checked. Some sources conflict with others I have discounted some sources that allege a connection to the American president, Andrew JACKSON and/or the celebrated Stonewall JACKSON. It does not mean that there is not one - only that I cannot yet prove it to my own satisfaction. Just because the pedigrees are saved in PRONI does not mean they are true – only that the family which submitted the material perhaps thought they were true.

 

One essential source was T.G.F. Paterson’s Notebook #5. It is held at the Armagh Archives. Eugene McCann built on Patterson’s  work in Ballykeel A Narrow Townland,. [Creggan: Journal of The Creggan Historical Society, 1997-98. No. 8.] Notes of the will of Samuel JACKSON (d 1706), done by Arthur Tenison Groves, were in Paterson’s Notebook #5, and revealed connections which led me to BMDs in Yorkshire. The registers of the parish church of Whittington in the County of Lancaster. Christenings, burials, and weddings, 1538 to 1764 was essential in the next steps.

 

I have made a list of the JACKSONs of this parish in a Whittington Jackson page. This is where it helps to ignore boundaries of counties. Whittington is in Lancashire, but is only about 5 miles south of Kirkby Lonsdale which is in Westmorland. The Rev. Richard JACKSON was a rector at Whittington, but was born at Kirkby Lonsdale. NOTE: The parish is sometimes described by family members as being in Yorkshire, Cumbria or Lancaster. There is some truth in all of them - depending on the date. Regardless, both parishes were in the Diocese of Chester (see the map at Wikipedia).

 

The River Lune flows through Kirkby Lonsdale, and south past Whittington, and on through Tatham and Halton - all parishes where members of this family served as rectors. The School at Sedburgh also had a Richard JACKSON serving as a schoolmaster - also likely a relation.

Kirkbly Lonsdale JACKSONs

 

 

The Beetham Funeral Entries added three more children’s names to the family in the 1688 will of William JACKSON. A final source was: Coleraine in by-gone centuries, Rev. T.H. Mullin. D.D., Century Services, 1976. Until then, I had been building this JACKSON tree branch by branch, pretty much in the dark. As a result of these leads, this tree is now in the Rootsweb version that gets more regular updates than pages such as this.

 

There are still some outstanding mysteries in the will of Samuel JACKSON of Dublin. NOTE: If he was not a bachelor (my current assumption), then the possibilities of who the mothers of the nephews and nieces may be expands.

  1. A nephew, William of Dublin, son of a sister of Samuel’s who married a William EMPSON].
  2. A nephew, W. MADDEN of Kilmon, son of a sister of Samuel’s who married an Unnamed MADDEN.
  3. A nephew, James HAMILL, son of a sister of Samuel’s who married an Unnamed HAMILL.
  4. A niece, Mary GILES, son of a sister of Samuel’s who married an Unnamed GILES.
  5. A sister who married John JACKSON, Minister of Skipworth.

There are two sisters of Samuel JACKSON’s who lived long enough to be possibilities: Elizabeth JACKSON and Anne JACKSON. NOTE: It is also possible that at least one of Samuel’s sisters may have married more than once since there are not four sisters whose husbands are unaccounted for.

 

Until recently, I believed that the William JACKSON who is the father of the Rev. Richard JACKSON had three other sons that are of interest in terms of other JACKSON family names in Ireland: Edmond JACKSON; Anthony JACKSON; and William JACKSON. Thanks to recent research by Jan Waugh, I believe that this is incorrect. The father of Rev. Richard JACKSON was a William JACKSON who married a Mary SLATER. Their children were Agnes, Richard, Francis, John & William. The can be found on my rootsweb family tree:

The latter does not include sources, and is not always accurate, but has been an extremely helpful place to start.
  • His father was William JACKSON, a mercer of Kirby Lonsdale – which may explain why Rev Richard JACKSON’s son William emigrated to Coleraine receiving grants of lands under the Clothworkers Estate.
  • NOTE: The 1602 birth date is still in the hunch territory, although is most likely given his dates at Christ's College..

He retained his post as minister of Whittington in the 8th Lancs.Classis 2 Oct. 1646 (Shaw 2. 397), in which year he subscribed the protest of the Lancs. presbyterian ministers against toleration of strange doctrines (Halley, 1. 473). He remained there till his death in 1680/1. He was twice married: his eldest daughter Marie, was baptised 2 Dec. 1642: between 1644 and 1646 his first wife died : and he married Jane Carter 26 Jan. 1647/8-, by whom he had four daughters and a son Leonard (admitted here 1668). His tombstone, which remains much worn, shows that he was buried 24 Feb. 1680/1. (Information from Rev. John Hodgkin.) Will proved at Richmond. (Croston-Baines, 5. 559.)
  • A letter from Col. Benson dated February 28, 1645 mentions that Richard JACKSON, minister of Whittingham near Kirby Lonsdall, has loaned some money to a popish recusant and that now this fellow is proving a Delinquent all his lands and meanes beinge sequestered and that he was utterly disabled to satisfy this debt. This poor minster (who is our lad) has a wife and many children, 14 children he hath & the 15th (is by this time borne for every houre his wife looks to it).  This child was the Rodger son of Mr. Richard Jackson pson of Whittington 15 Mar 1645 mentioned in the christening records. Rodger aka Roger was the youngest known child of Richard JACKSON & Dorothy OTWAY. SOURCE: The Ejected of 1662 in Cumberland and Westmorland Vol II. B. Nightingale, Manchester, 1911. p890.

[2] Co. Westmorland. The historic county boundaries of Westmorland are with Cumberland to the north, County Durham and Yorkshire to the east, and Lancashire to the south and west. Hence, in some histories, the family is alleged to have come from Yorkshire or Lancashire - the boundaries at the time were somewhat flexible and not always exactly as we have them now.

[3] 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. Richard JACKSON became Rector of Whittington in 1641, July 26. 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 Tunstall, 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.

·        He married 1715 Margaret BERESFORD Sister to the Marquis of Waterford. SOURCE: John Drebett, The Baronetage of England, NOTE: This relationship s as sister to the Marquis seems unlikely. It has the feel of a few generations being conflated. It is possible that she was a sister of Sir Tristram BERESFORD (1669-1701) whose son Sir Marcus BERESFORD (1694-1763) was in turn the father of the 1st Marquess of Waterford (George de la Poer BERESFORD (1735-1800), but even that is not a terribly good fit.

·        NOTE: There are some puzzling aspects to the name of Thomas JACKSON’s wife. There is a Thomas JACKSON who died in 1751 who was of Creekstown, Co. Meath, whose widow was named Anne – not Margaret. Given the family land connections to the BALL family, who owned the lease for this land, this would seem to be the same person. Perhaps there was a 2nd wife, as yet unknown.

[111] Samuel JACKSON. The key source here was a will that I took notes on. It was included in T.G.F. Patterson’s Notebook #5 which is held at the Armagh Museum.

He resided at the time of his death with a nephew, Robert JACKSON in a house on Mary Lane, Dublin. He owned property in Co. Monaghan and Co. Cavan as well as at Clifford in Yorkshire. He also owned other properties in Dublin: Young Cashall & Fishamble St. House in King St. which he bought from William Robert THORNTON. In naming three friends from Coleraine as well as a nephew from Coleraine, he clearly had strong connections with that part of Ireland.

Although the surviving Lisburn church registers do not record any relevant baptism, marriage or burial for this JACKSON family, a Roger JACKSON was listed as a Churchwarden in April 1699 and again in April 1700 and then replaced June 19th, 1700 (possibly because he had just died).SOURCE:   Churchwardens of Lisburn Cathedral as cited in The Harrison Family.
