Jackson -Pepys connection: Paulina PEPYS, the sister of the celebrated diarist Samuel PEPYS married a yeoman farmer, John JACKSON.
Other than the fact that his father was a John JACKSON and he had brothers Richard and James, I do not know where he might fit into another JACKSON tree.

NOTE: I have highlighted where the two trees touch.

4.  Samuel Pepys, Robert Latham, William Matthews, The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Vol. 10: Companion, University of California Press, 2000., 204-205, John Jackson of Ellington, close by Brampton -- a man ‘of no education or discourse’ (ix.56) who had since his father's death in 1652 been farming the land of Parsonage farm together with some fields he had inherited in copyhold. He also inherited from his stepbrother (?brother-in-law) Robert Ensum the “Tiled House” in Ellington and between 20 and 30 scattered acres of pasture in the parish -- all in the hands of tenants2. But he was a poor manager and soon after his marriage was in trouble with his landlord, Peterhouse, Cambridge. Pall had virtually to take over his affairs, from time to time consulting her brother John and after John's death, Pepys himself. At the same time she was bringing up her two sons and looking after her father, who lived with her after his wife's death in 1667. In 1677 they all left Ellington and went to live at the Pepys family house at Brampton. Pepys, believing that Jackson was “not made ... of stuff capable of any amendment”3, thought of buying some of the Ellington land from Peterhouse and settling it on Pall and her sons, leaving Jackson with a small annuity. But in September 1680 before the arrangements could be made, Jackson died, leaving debts and chaos. A few weeks later old John Pepys died, and Pepys had no choice but to go to Brampton and spend several unhappy weeks sorting out the affairs of both the Ellington and Brampton estates. In the end he provided Pall with an allowance from the Brampton revenues4. By this time she was in poor health and in 1681-2 was in London receiving treatment. She died on 17 November 1689 and was buried at Brampton.  She left two sons: Samuel, Pepys godchild, born in 1669, and John, born in 1673, who after their father's death had been boarded with the master of Huntingdon school, John Matthews. .

For my purposes here, it is enough to note:   John JACKSON, wife of Paulina Pepys was a son of John Jackson of Buckden Hunt’s. He was a nephew of Lewis Phillips, an attorney of Brampton, mentioned in Pepys’ Diary. John JACKSON, who was mentioned in the will of his father 15 Jan. 1652/3. Died c. Sept. 1680. Administration 4 Oct. 1680  .

7.  Samuel Pepys, Robert Latham, William Matthews, The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Vol. 10: Companion, University of California Press, 2000., Pepys brother-in-law and sister, Paulina was born on 18 October, 1640 and entered Pepys household as a servant in January 1661. Pepys writes of her at this time as both ill-natured and ill favoured. She was not thought worthy of being Elizabeth waiting-woman and was made to stand in her presence. In the following August when her parents moved to Brampton she was sent there to look after them.

8.  Samuel Pepys, Robert Latham, William Matthews, The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Vol. 10: Companion, University of California Press, 2000., 205, By this time she was in poor health and in 1681-2 was in London receiving treatment. She died on 17 November 1689 and was buried at Brampton.

11.  Samuel Pepys, Robert Latham, William Matthews, The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Vol. 10: Companion, University of California Press, 2000., 205, Samuel is described by Pepys in 1684 as “healthy strong but not so forward and pregnant at his books as I should could wish”. He was taken from Mr. Matthews care and put it to school in London to learn writing and casting up accounts. In 1684, Pepys arranged for him to be sent as a cabin boy on board an East Indiaman. He is next heard of in July 1688 as a powder monkey on his Majesty's ship the Foresight just home with Narbrough’s squadron from the West Indies. By 1694, and probably earlier, he was settled ashore, living at the Brampton house and managing Pepys property there. As godson and next of kin he was made heir to all Pepys of Huntingdonshire property in his will of 2 August 1701. He then thought fit to marry against his uncle's positive advice and injunctions. Nothing is known of the circumstances but in the final will of 12 May 1703 he was cut off with an annuity of £406. He married again as a widower in February 1714 Elizabeth Wiggson of Steeple Gidding, Hunts, and was described in the marriage bond as a gentleman of Ellington.

19.  Samuel Pepys, Robert Latham, William Matthews, The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Vol. 10: Companion, University of California Press, 2000., [Samuel's] younger brother John was more to Pepys liking. He took to his books and music at an early age, and was sent to Pepys old college, Magdalena. After taking his bachelor’s degree in 1690 he joined his uncle's household in York buildings and acted as his clerk and amanuensis. It was at this period that Pepys was busy adding to his library, and the young Jackson was sent off abroad in 1699 with a manservant, partly for his own education and partly to make acquisitions for the collection. The tour occupied two years and took in France, Italy, Spain and Portugal. Jackson learned Italian and Spanish at Pepys particular behest, saw the Jubilee ceremonies of 1701 and a bull fight in Madrid, wrote regularly to his patron and usually kept a journal. On his return Pepys, being ill, was ready to abandon Westminster for Clapham -- all the more readily perhaps because he could leave young Jackson in charge of his household and library in York buildings. In his final will and its codicil he made him heir to the greater part of his wealth and gave him charge, for his lifetime, of the library. Jackson, acting under the instruction in Pepys codicil made purchases to complete the collection, drew up the final recension of the catalogue and chose the room in the new building at Magdalene where it was to be housed after his death. After Pepys’ death he moved, with the library (at some date unknown) to the Hewer household at Clapham and in 1712 married Anne Edgeley, first cousin once removed of Will Hewer -  a union which would have pleased his uncle as much as his brother’s mésalliance displeased him8. He died intestate in 1723: letters of administration were granted to his widow and his son John in March of that year9. [See also Brampton; The diary etc.; Pepys, Robert].

Pepys inherited the whole estate on his father's death in 1680 at first planned to settle the Brampton and Buckden lands on Jacksons two sons, but the difficulty of devising a copyhold defeated him, and he ended by settling an annuity on their mother and providing for the nephews from his own income. The elder nephew until c. 1695 acted as agent. From time to time Pepys also employed other agents -- the Huntingdon schoolmaster John Matthews a connection by marriage and the Rector of Amesbury, John Turner. At his death the Brampton estates -- slightly larger than in 1661 consisted of 84 acres held in copyhold and let and nine parcels. Together with the Brampton house and the Offord land it brought in an income of £77.11s 6p. It was bequeathed to his heir John Jackson jun and sometime after the death of Jackson's unmarried son, John Pepys Jackson (1716-80) was absorbed into the Sandwich estate.
