NOTE: Since my prime interests relating to JACKSONs rest in Ireland, I will not be footnoting all the American JACKSONs that link up to this tree. If there does turns out to be a connection to our JACKSONs in Ireland, then I will then take the time to add the other related names. CAUTION: As Edmund T. BEWLEY points out (in the first footnote) , the first 4 generations of this tree may be more fanciful than fact. As I work my way through Ireland-related Deeds and other such sources, I will add more references to the appropriate JACKSONs. Near the end of this tree, I have highlighted in red a Richard JACKSON whom I believe is worthy more attention with respect to other JACKSON lines (including mine). Also of interest, is the line of JACKSONs who were prominent in the printing trades in Dublin in the late 1700s.It would not surprise me if they turn out to be connected to the Lisbanoe JACKSONs.

Update January 13, 2010 Footnote 36 - new information on JACKSONs of Ballitore.
Update: A number of new sources and names were added relating to Thomas JACKSON 1807-1890 - the famous Irish architect from Waterford.
Update: August 5, 2010 Editing update - more to come. Also check outchanges in JACKSONs of Co. Down
Update November 11, 2013. Thanks to input from Paul Blaylock. My changes are not elegantly done on this page, but better than nothing.

[1] The connection of the Mountmellick JACKSONs to the Killingwold Grove JACKSONs is dismissed by Edmund T. BEWLEY. He is most certainly right about the insufficiency of evidence, but his argument based on noscitur a sociis (A rule of language used by the courts to help interpret legislation, under which the questionable meaning of a doubtful word can be derived from its association with other words) also has its limits. Even so, it is likely that the first four generations as shown in this genealogy are invalid. Here is the nub of BEWLEY’s argument: Sir Anthony Jackson was a man of good family, a church- man, a courtier, and an ardent Royalist; while the Anthony Jackson in question was a small farmer, a Puritan, and a Cromwellian. Any one who has studied the early history of the Society of Friends knows that the Society was at this time recruited mainly from yeomen and the lower middle class, and not from the landed gentry. Few would be likely to join its ranks who were not already imbued with Puritan principles. Not only is there an entire absence of any evidence of a descent of this Anthony Jackson from the Jacksons of Killingwoldgraves, but there is a strong presumption against any such descent. It will be found, I think, that the first suggestion of this descent came from ' George Henry de Strabolgi Plantagenet ' Harrison or whatever his proper designation may be whose unscrupulous conduct in pedigree mongering is dealt with by Mr. Walter Rye in his Records and Record Search in Portions of the Greer pedigree as given in the early editions of Burke's Landed Gentry were severely handled by ' Anglo-Scotus ' in the Herald and Genealogist (vi. 137) ; and I think the alleged descent from the Killingwoldgraves Jacksons is almost worthy of a place in the Ancestor under the heading of ' What is Believed.'  SOURCE: THE JACKSONS IN IRELAND Edmund T.

It was the ancestral home of the Jackson family, beginning with Richard (1505?-1555), the husband of Ann TODD, and the father of Anthony JACKSON, the husband of Margaret FROBISHER. Their son (Sir) Richard's wife was Ursula HILDYARD, a direct descendant of Edward I LONGSHANKS, and their son, Sir Anthony JACKSON II was a prominent courtier with both Charles I and Charles II Stuart.

This parish is situated on the road from York to Hull, and comprises 4208a. 20p., of which about 170 acres are woods and plantations; of the rest two-thirds are arable, and one-third pasture. The soil is various, the greater part a strong clay, with some very rich grazingland near the village; and the surface is undulated. There is a good limestone-quarry. On the village green is a fine pool of water, near which stood a long-noted gigantic elm, that was blown down in 1837. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the king's books at £5. 6. 8., and in the gift of the Dean and Chapter of York: the tithes were commuted for land and a money payment in 1767.

·        SOURCE: Proceedings of the Sesqui-Centennial Gathering of the descendants of Isaac and Ann Jackson at Harmony Grove, 1875, No further record of parents names.,

·        SOURCE: Bob Wilson email May 18 2008, [NOTE: This is best considered whithin the context of other sources.] I descend from Sir Anthony Jackson from Eccleston, Lancashire, who was in the service of the King Charles's I and II. Through his son also named Anthony, I descend down through Isaac Jackson of the Quaker village, Ballitore, County Kildare, to Quaker settlements in Chester County PA in the late 1790's. Sir Anthony's mother was an Ursula Hildyard, of Yorkshire, who was in turn of Rollo the Viking of Normandy-William the Conqueror-Edward I Longshanks (Plantagenet) direct descent. Sir Anthony is also an ancestor, through another son, to the forefather of both US President Andrew Jackson and US Confederate General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. Sir Anthony also has another distinction that links him to London in the 17th Century. He and his wife were imprisoned in The Tower for awhile while the Cromwells and Parliament held sway in England. But fortunately for them, most of their children were avowed Cromwellians who obtained large tracts of conquered Irish Lands.,

·        SOURCE: http://genealogy.wikia.com/wiki/Anthony_Jackson_(1599-1666) Sir Anthony Jackson was born in 1599 in Yorkshire England to Richard Jackson and Ursula Hildyard. He was baptized on September 5, 1599 at All Saints. When he was 11, his father died.  Anthony was admitted to the Inner Temple in 1616 to study law. In 1628, he worked as private secretary to George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham and Prime Minister of England. He was called to the Bar in 1635. He would became Bencher 25 years later, after the war, in 1660. He was gentleman in the Privy Chamber to King Charles I about 1640. He was promised the place of Protho- Notary of the Common Pleas at Oxford in 1646.  English Civil War and imprisonment The English Civil occurred and Anthony Jackson was on the side of the monarch. He was knighted at Breda about 1650 when Charles II was in the Netherlands and Oliver Cromwell headed the English government. He acted as Herald in proclaiming Charles II King of England.  In September 1651 during the Battle of Worcester, Anthony was taken prisoner. He escaped with other prisoners, but was retaken and committed to the Tower of London under an order of the Council of State, dated November 1, 1651 "for invading this nation with Charles Stuart." On November 11, his wife was granted permission to visit him. Anthony petitioned to Oliver Cromwell to be released, stating that he was "a servant only to the late king, but never in arms, and had only charity to subsist on." The indorsement of the petition reads "Herald that proclaimed Charles Stuart." This petition was taken to Council on February 22, 1653/4 but he was not released from the Tower. On February 5, 1655/6, Jackson once again petitioned Cromwell for release on security for good conduct, alleging that otherwise he must perish for want, as his friends could no longer supply him. The certificate of the Lieutenant of the Tower accompanying the petition states that "he has demeaned himself civilly, is retired and studious and very poor and fit to be released." The petition also states that his land was confiscated because of his loyalty to the Stuarts.  Later life and death In 1658, Charles II was reinstated to the monarchy and in 1659, Anthony was released and given 50 pounds. Anthony died in 1666. He was buried at the Temple Church on October 14, 1666.  Letter to Sir Edward Nicholas In my passage by Rouen gave you a full account by a letter left with Dr Baseier u how you stood in the esteame with the Queene • Col. Thomas Rainsborongh. His proposition for redncing Jersey was approved by the Commons on 23 Apr. (C.

I n the course of this year he left Rouen on a prolonged tour for the purpose of spreading the doctrines of the English Church in the East from the mouth of Lord Jermyn.

·        SOURCE: Katherine Hoagland, Family Origins, He was knighted by Charles II in 1650 in Breda, Holland Anthony Jackson II, whose wife's name is unknown, lived in Eccleston, Lancashire, at least when some of his children were born. He had a large family, which included: Richard Jackson III, Anthony Jackson III, John Jackson, William Jackson, and possibly a Robert Jackson and Thomas Jackson. There may have also been daughters. Descendants of the sons, lived in either England or Ireland, according to various circumstances, and then their descendants came to America.  While his family was growing up, Anthony II, according to Boddie in Historic Southern Families, became the private secretary to George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham and Prime Minister of England. Then, according to William Ross Cooper in Jackson Family Genealogy and History, he was a strong supporter of the Royal House of Stewart. He had spent his young days under James I (the same King James that we have our current edition of the Bible in English) and later supported Charles I, who became king when he was twenty-six years old. He was admitted to the inner-temple in 1616 (I question this date, since James I was still ruling and Anthony would have been only 17 years old), becoming a gentleman of the private chamber of Charles I. (See, the date must have been wrong. Charles didn't come to the throne until 1625). He was called to the bar in 1635 and promised the place of Protho-Notary of the Common Pleas at Oxford in 1646.  With a rebellion developing against his king, Anthony Jackson II remained loyal to Charles I. he continued this loyalty until Charles was beheaded in 1649. By that time the government was in the hands of the people of England, led by Oliver Cromwell, and Charles II, who was supposed to be on the throne after his father's death, was in exile.  Anthony Jackson II continued in his loyalty to the house of Stewart and for this he was knighted to Breda, Holland, in 1650. In 1651, when Charles II tried to come back to the throne, he was crowned, possibly at Scone in Scotland. Anthony Jackson was the Herald who announced the proclamation. For his continued support of the Royal Family, he was jailed on his return to England and spent eight years in the Tower of London.  William Ross Cooper says: "He was taken prisoner at the battle of Worcester and having escaped with other prisoners, was retaken prisoner and committed to the Tower as a close prisoner under a council dated Nov. 1, 1651. This order mentions him as "Anthony Jackson, alias Sir Anthony Jackson". (The English must not have wanted to recognize his new title.) Ten days later when his wife visited him in the Tower, she was spoken of as Mrs. Jackson. Her maiden name is not known. He was accused of High Treason and kept a close prisoner for proclaiming Charles Stewart (Stuart) as King of England. He was later given the liberty of the Tower and at the end of eight years was released. During his imprisonment his property was dissipated and he was penniless when released. (Note:--Cooper's note-- It was customary to require prisoners to pay for their subsistence and clothes or they were allowed to starve. They even had to pay for the water they drank and for bringing all supplies to them.  Anthony's release came about the time England was realizing that the government of the Commonwealth was becoming weak from lack of continuous leadership and had asked Charles II to come home and be their King. Cromwell had died and no other strong leader had emerged. Charles II came back in 1660 and ruled until 1685. Cooper says that he gave an order to the treasury to pay fifty pounds sterling to Anthony Jackson for his loyalty and loss of fortune. Anthony lived six more years, his death occurring in 1666. He was married to Mrs._Anthony JACKSON about 1623 in of Eccleston, Lancastershire, England. .

They moved to Cavan and later probably to Mountmellick.,

·        SOURCE: Katherine Hoagland, Family Origins, Richard and Anthony Jackson left England and went to live in Ireland., settling first at Carrickfergus in Antrim. There Richard met and married Margaret Keete. Anthony also married, but his wife's name is lost to history. Soon they met a man who helped cause a great change in their lives. William Edmundson, another Englishman, a recent convert to Quakerism, came to Ireland to visit his brother. Later he returned to make his home there. His ardent enthusiasm was contagious. The Jackson brothers, formerly Anglicans, or Presbyterians as some researchers say, came under his influence and accepted the simple belief that if people would be still and wait, it would not be long until god would speak to them directly instead of through a Priest. A better opportunity seemed to beckon the Jacksons to Lurgan, in Armagh, so they moved there to live. By then several others had converted to Quakerism and meetings were held in various homes. William Edmundson's account of those days, credits himself, Richard Jackson and Anthony Jackson, and four others with founding the first Quaker Meeting in Ireland, dating it from 1654. The following year some of this first group moved to County Cavan and settled near the line which separated Ulster from Leinster. There they also started a Meeting. William Edmundson and Richard Jackson continued to move, zealously starting Quaker meetings where they went. Anthony Jackson remained in Cavan the rest of his life.

·        The Irish Ancestor p 60 Vol IX No. 2 1977 The [PIMS] were replaced at Killinure by Thomas Jackson and his second wife Dorothy: Jackson was a Quaker from  Co. Down who had been living at Mountmellick. Jackson children were born at Killinure between 1692 and 1700, and Anthony's [Anthony SHARP’s] will of 1706 mentions Thomas Jackson as the  lessee of Killinure. Jackson died there on 15th June 1716 aged 60, as did a son of his in  1717, in which year a daughter of his was married from there. One John Jackson,  possibly either a son or brother of Thomas, died at Killinure on 6th August 1715 (will proved at Ossory 1717), and John's widow Joan died there in 1728: three of their  daughters were married from there, Catherine in 1722, Abigail in 1726 and Alice in 1732, after which the association of the Jacksons with Killinure appears to have ceased. ... Local tradition holds that there was an "Elizabethan" house on the site of Roundwood. The 1659 "Census" shows Thomas Paul as titulado of Killinure with 24 English  and 4 Irish inhabitants. Certainly there was a "mansion" on the lands when Anthony  Sharp acquired them at the end of the 17th century. This must have been the house in  which the Jacksons lived but it seems to have fallen into some disrepair between Thomas  Jackson's death in 1716 and 1725 when Anthony Sharp's son Isaac let the lands of  Killinure to John Dufficld. gent, of Kincor, King's County "in the same manner as  Patrick Rafter and Garrett Ansloe had enjoyed them" (Reg. of Deeds 50 160 32424).  By this deed Isaac Sharp obliged himself and his heirs "to cover the dwelling house of  Killenure with slates and to repair the chimney and to glaze the windows and to repair  the stable, cowhouse and barn and to put the oat kiln and mills in repair." The present  stable building with its steeply pitched roof is in the style favoured early in the 18th  century and I believe that it dates from the renovations promised in 1725. Traces of  the mills have been found on the lands. 1 believe thai the old mansion or dwelling house  the two-storey building, 47 feet long by 17 feet deep with a massive central chimney,  standing at the back of the yard behind the present house. Its early brick floor was  revealed when the wooden one was lifted in the course of restoration in the 1970s. The  building has been mauled, having been used in the 19th century as an agent's dwelling and  offices and later as a bam, but essentially it retains the characteristics of the long, low  settlers' houses of 17th century Ireland. Prior to 1725 it was undoubtedly thatched, as  the deed specifies to "cover. . . with slates" rather than to repair the slates.

They settled first in that part of western Virginia which became Moorfields, Hardy county, and subsequently crossed the Alleghany ridge and settled on the Buckhannon river, the place becoming known first as Jackson's Fort, and subsequently Buckhannon. With his sons George and Edward, he took part in the American Revolution on the patriot side. Edward Jackson was also a surveyor, and acquired a large estate.

On the ship was Elizabeth Cummins, a young girl, whom he m. in Maryland, in 1755. They soon removed to Western Vi to a place long known as Jackson's fort, now Buchanan. (Ref: Lineage Jackson, by W.

Arriving in the new country in 1748/49 would make her born on 8 January 1728/29. She died in Clarksburg, (West) Virginia in 1825. - Linda B. Meyers]  "John Jackson was descended from English settlers in Ireland. He was born in Coleraine, Londonderry, Ireland, and at the age of ten moved with his family to London. He emigrated to Maryland in 1748, married, and removed to Virginia in 1758 (present day Hardy County, West Virginia). He was a member of the County Court, served as an Indian spy in 1787 for Governor Henry Lee, and was a lieutenant of the militia in 1787. During the Revolutionary War, he took part in the Battle of King's Mountain. John was said to have been a spare, diminutive man, quiet, determined, courageous, and of sound judgment." [N2] "Elizabeth Cummins was a strong-willed Englishwoman from London. She was raised by a maiden aunt, who upon her death left Elizabeth one thousand pounds sterling. She set off to America with her inheritance, met and married John Jackson in Cecil County, Maryland. (The legend that she fled England after throwing a tankard of ale at a King's soldier in her aunt's tavern is a little more exciting, but has been fairly well proven to be fanciful.) She is described as being rather masculine in stature, quite intelligent, and as having a great deal of courage and strong character. She fought off Indian attacks and patented 3,000 acres of land in her own name and paid for them herself." [N3] Elizabeth Cummins is considered a Patriot of the American Revolution by the Daughters of the American Revolution (D. A. R.) as she, while her husband and sons were away, fought at Jackson's Fort. [N4] Jackson's Fort has a nice ring to it, however, as pointed out by McWhorter, "Jackson's Fort [and others] were probably only strategic and strongly built dwellings or block houses, where the immediate inhabitants fled on occasion of sudden alarms, and where scouts had regular places of meeting." [N5] "There was a block house about three miles west of Bush's Fort, on Fink's Run .... It was built by some of the Jacksons on land now [1915] owned by Mr. Martin Reger. Prof. Maxwell refers to this building as "Jackson's Fort." History of Randolph County, West Va, p. 414. It could hardly be termed a fort, in the sense of that word. It was only a block house, or a strongly built two-story log dwelling without a palisade; and never figured as a defensive stronghold."

Sex: Male Birth: 1628 St. Michael's Parish, Eccleston, Lancashire, England Death:          After 1681 Armagh, County Cavan, Ireland Father: Anthony Jackson (1599-1666) Anthony Jackson, Jr. was born in 1628 in St. Michael's Parish, Eccleston, Lancashire, England to Sir Anthony Jackson. He was baptized in St. Michael's Parish. Anthony and his brothers lived during the time of Oliver Cromwell and supported him. He and his brothers were members of Cromwell's New Model army. They were granted Irish Estates in 1648. In 1649, Anthony and his brothers went to Ireland with the New Model army to put down an uprising. They decided to remain in Ireland, to lived on their estates that were granted to them earlier. They lived in Lurgan, Ulster, Ireland. Anthony married in Ireland, but his wife's name is not known. Anthony was initially a member of the Anglican Church, but in 1654 he and his brother Richard were converted by William EDMUNDSON to Quakerism. William EDMUNDSON, Anthony JACKSON, Richard JACKSON, and three others established the first Friends' Meeting House in Lurgan. In 1655, EDMUNDSON purchased land in County Cavan for him and some of his friends, including Anthony and Richard JACKSON. They moved to Cavan with their families the same year. There, they established a Friends' Meeting House. William EDMUNDSON and Richard JACKSON moved away from Cavan in 1659, but Anthony chose to remain in Cavan. They established a Friends Meeting House in Mountmellick. Anthony suffered religious persecution in Cavan and Old Castle areas in 1670 and 1681. In 1681, Anthony was suffering persecution and was later imprisoned due to failure to pay tithes. He died after 1681 and before 1696 in County Cavan, Ireland.

[36] Isaac JACKSON

·        Isaac Jackson was born in 1665 in Cavan, C, Ireland. He died in 1750 in London Grove, Chester Co., PA. Information on Isaac Jackson from Immigration of Irish Quakers to PA by Albert Cook Myers. After his marriage, Isaac resided at Oldcastle, County Meath and Clonerany, County Wexford. About 1706-07 they moved to Ballytore, County Kildare. In 1725 they left on the Sizargh from  Dublin and reached New Castle on Delaware 11 Nov 1725. They joined a  married daughter, Rebecca Jackson Starr who was living in London Grove  Township, Chester Co., PA, and settled there.  Isaac Jackson's Certificate of Removal from Carlow Monthly Meeting,  County Carlow, Ireland, which was dated 1 Mo. 28, 1725 was received at  New Garden Monthly Meeting 9 Mo 10, 1725. He was married to Ann Evans on 29 Apr 1696 in Old Castle NM, County Meath, Ireland. JACKSONs Tenth Generation, SOURCE: Katherine Hoagland, Family Origins.

  • NOTE: Richard JACKSON’s descendants later moved to Ballitore (with William BARCROFT & John PIM). They became involved in agriculture and Mountmellick soon became the leading Quaker colony outside of Dublin. .... The access of Quakers to land in Co. Kildare and Co. Carlow was twofold; either they acquired it by grant as in the case of ex-Cromwellian soldiers, or those who objected to this practices (as in the case of General William Barcroft, who refused a grant of land as it had been acquired by the sword) on religious ground settled on land hitherto uncultivated. NOTE: earlier version of Ballitore was recorded as the townland of Ballitoivre. The geographic location of Carlow monthly meeting district extended from the town of Athy in south Co. Kildare to Tullow in Co. Carlow, Its development followed the course of the river Barrow and later it extended eastwards to encompass the newly established village of Ballitore in the early eighteenth century. This triangular-shaped region incorporated the four adjoining baronies ... Narragh and Reban in Co. Kildare. Where a meeting house was built in Athy and Ballitore in 1708; and Kilkea and Moone where a meeting house was built at Castledermot. In Co. Carlow meeting-houses were built at Newgarde (later Carlow) and Newtown in the barony of Idrone, and lastly at Kilconner, in 1678 in the barony of Forth. Graveyards were built in Newgarden and Ballykeally in Co. Carlow and at Ballitore in Co. Kildare. ...10 of the original Cromwellian planters (four of whom were ex-Cromwellian soldiers) settled during the first period, 1650-1675. They did not make a significant impact on the area, as five of the original families had left the area by 1700, and by 1725 all their surnames had disappeared from the Quaker registers. .... Robert Lecky land transactions ... The other Quakers such as  ... and Jacksons faded into oblivion – presumably they migrated or married non-Quakers, with resulted in their disownment.

·        In 1696 Isaac Jackson, son of Anthony Jackson III, was married to Ann Evans. Records of their wedding show that Thomas Jackson and three women named Jackson were also in attendance. Some researchers do not positively identify Thomas as Isaac's brother and therefore not as the son of Anthony. Other researchers claim that they were brothers and both sons of Anthony. The wedding record does not say what the relationship was between Isaac and the others, but I am inclined to agree with those who think that Thomas was one of the sons of Anthony Jackson III.  We have no way of telling which was the older, Isaac or Thomas Jackson, since we do not know the date of Thomas' birth. Isaac was born in 1665, according to Halliday Jackson, and most people believe Thomas was born a few years later. Both men and their families lived in Old Castle, county West Meath, Ireland, for a while. Thomas continued to live there, belonging to the Old Castle Meeting until he came to America. Isaac did more moving around, living in County Clonerary, County Wexford and County Kildare before he left Ireland.  Both brothers completed their families in Ireland.  Isaac and Thomas Jackson did not have to suffer the extreme persecutions for their faith that their father did. By the time they were grown men laws had been passed which were more tolerant of religious beliefs other than the Church of England. Real acceptance of Quakers was slower coming and Friends continued to be in disfavor during their lifetime. This, however, was not the main reason for the move to the New World. These two brothers were, along with thousands of others, weavers of linen drapers by trade. In most cases this meant they raised the flax on leased land, processed it and wove it into linen cloth right at home. The Scots and English who had been transplanted to Ulster were hard-working and conscientious people who produced a high quality product which in time became much too competitive with England's industrial production, causing bitter feelings to rise up in England. The English began to regret even colonizing Northern Ireland. Landlords, frequently absentee owners of Irish land who lived in England, began to raise rents as leases ran out, creating hardships the Northern Irelanders found increasingly difficult to bear. Quaker farmers/weavers were luckier than most in that relief came in an unusual way.  George Fox, who founded the Society of Friends, had been advocating providing a place for persecuted Quakers in some location in the American Colonies. It remained for William Penn to actually make this happen. William Penn's father, Sir William Penn, an admiral in the English Navy, had bequeathed to him a claim against the crown for sixteen thousand pounds. In payment of this he induced Charles II to give him a proprietary charter for forty thousand square miles in America, which he began to offer at very low rates for sale to fellow Quakers and any one else who wanted to better their economic condition. Beginning soon after the grant to Penn in 1681, there began to come to this new colony, which was named Pennsylvania for its founder, a stream of settlers which continued for many years.  Pennsylvania was to have a government run by its people based on exact justice to all, red and white, regardless of religious belief. There was to be trial by jury. Murder and treason were to be the only capital crimes. Punishment for other offences was to have reformation, not retaliation, in view. It is no wonder that the colony grew so fast. by 1700 Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, was the busiest port on the Atlantic seaboard and had a population of 4000. Immigrants arriving there stopped long enough to get supplies and go on to the nearest land still for sale. The frontier moved rapidly.  People who had been neighbors and friends in Ireland tended to go to the same locations. When the Jacksons, the Millers, the Lightfoots, the Wileys, and others arrived they found land in Chester County which was the third county organized in the colony, located not far from Philadelphia. Not content to wait until houses could be built for them, they moved directly to their property and made temporary shelters to protect them from the elements until houses could be constructed. Michael Lightfoot is known to have lived in a cave on his property until his house could be built. No one found clearing land and making conditions livable very easy. Their hardships in this new land, though, were not enough to cause them to forget their blessings They established Meetings in every locality. Fortunately for us, they kept records of their membership, including records of births, deaths, and weddings. In 1902 at Swatthmore, Pennsylvania, Albert Cook Myers, M.L., published a book about the Irish Quakers in Pennsylvania, which was based largely upon church records. From his book we get much information about the Jacksons who came to America from Ireland. SOURCE: Katherine Hoagland, Family Origins,

·         Jackson was born in 1665 in Old Castle, County Meath, Ireland to Anthony Jackson, Jr. and an unknown mother. Isaac was educated in the principles of the Society of Friends, and was known as an exemplary and consistent member of the Society.  Isaac married Ann Evans on November 29, 1696 in Old Castle, Meath, Wicklow, Ireland. They had ten children, of which three were named after Isaac. The first two died young, but Isaac was persistant to keep the name in the family. His youngest son was named Isaac, and he lived to adulthood. Around 1706/7, they moved to Ballitore, County Kildare, Ireland, nearby the Carlow Meeting House, where Isaac was a member.  In an old memoir, it is said of Isaac and Ann Jackson that "they were Friends in good esteem, who, by their industry and care, in part by farming, but principally in the weaving business, maintained their large family with reputation."  Immigration  As Isaac and Ann grew older, they looked to America as a future home. Their eldest child, Rebecca, had already gome there in 1718, to New London Township in Chester County, now in Pennsylvania, and lived there with her husband, Jeremiah Starr. The Starr family was said to have found a better life in America, and Isaac and Ann considered it. According to a memoir, their thoughts regarding immigration were "under weighty consideration." They considered immigration for several years, and informed their friends about it. According to the memoir, "While they were under exercise and concern of mind, and desirous that best wisdom might direct, Isaac had a dream or vision to this import--that having landed in America he traveled a considerable distance back into the country till he came to a valley between two hills. Through this valley ran a pretty stream of water. The prospect and situation of the place seemed pleasant, and, in his dream, he thought his family must settle there, though a wilderness unimproved." Isaac and Ann decided to go to America. They left Dublin in 1725 on the Slizargh (NOT the Lizar) and arrived at New Castle, now in Delaware, on September 11, 1725.  Life in America The family proceeded to go to the house of Jeremiah and Rebecca Starr, on a farm in New Garden, Chester County, Pennsylvania. Isaac's dream had come true, as the memoir states, "was informed of such a place near. He soon went to see it, which to his admiration so resembled what he had a foresight of, that it was a cause of joy and thankfulness." He saw an area of land on a hillside, nearby a spring. He dreamt that not only he, but his descendants would occupy the land. Isaac and his family settled on a 400 acre tract of land, in a valley. There, he, with the help of his sons, built a cabin. Isaac had brought with him from Ireland, a certificate of membership from the Carlow Meeting House to the New Garden Meeting House, for himself and his wife. Soon after, Isaac was appointed an overseer, and later, an elder of that meeting house. He continued to be elder of the meeting house until he resigned in 1744, at the age of 79. Isaac died in May 1751 in London Grove, Pennsylvania. In accordance with his will, he gave his eldest American son William the bulk of his entire estate.
