NOTE: This is a companion tree to go with other files I have been working on. It is very much a work in progress. It is largely based on work done by a genealogist hired by Christopher Vane Percy. I have also written about Original JACKSON on my blog

5.  Sharon Oddie Brown Research,   I feel reasonably confident that this is the Original JACKSON buried at Water Newton. I am basing this on two pieces of information and one observation.

·       Firstly, the fact that his daughter married a George PALMER of Water Newton.

·       Secondly, the National Archives R4/2/13 31st October-1st November 1768 which states in a lease and release: "Jackson now of Water Newton, Esq; to Rev. Horace Hamond of Harpley, Norfolk, DD. £6,000 as in R4/2/11".  It seems reasonable that in 1678, 3 years before his death, that he might be living with his daughter.   

·       Finally, the observation that the name “Original” is not that common. This is another one of those convergences which also makes me think that Original JACKSON may be related to the Duddington JACKSONs – they had land at Castor, less than two miles from Water Newton.     

Here Lye the Remains  of ORIGINAL JACKSON, Esq.,  who departed this life  the 10th of May 1771  Aged 74 Years.    This inscription is in the Church of St. Regimus, in the Parish of Water Newton in Cambridgeshire, England. NOTE: for those not well versed with the geography of English Counties, Cambridgeshire is just east of Northamptonshire - so the connection to the Duddington JACKSONs is not far fetched, if we are using the stones throw calculation of distances when it comes to looking at hunches.

6.  Christopher Vane Percy, NOTE: The genealogist hired by Christopher wonders who was the Original JACKSON mentioned at Water Newton 1767. .
