Family Trees of Jacksons of Steeple & Loonburn & Islandmagee. It seems likely that the George JACKSON (1773-1797) in the first tree, whose ancestors owned land at Steeple, Parish of Antrim is a good possibility for the George (or Luke) JACKSON (b. abt 1775) in the second tree who owned land at Loonburn. The date for the latter is a hunch based merely on the birthdate of his first known son. I will be researching this further when I am next in PRONI (April 2015).

Update March 21, 2015. I have also posted a piece on my blog on the backsground of these families. ADD: There is a raft of new info on a series of rootsweb messages. I won't update the page right now, but it will be updated on the roostweb tree that can be accessed by clicking on the hyperlinked names beneath.
Update March 9, 2016. More detail, so it is easier for searches to find the material.
Update August 17, 2016. I have added a complete new branch of JACKSONs. They are from Castlegore and Ballycastle, Co. Antrim. They are inserted with a table. I will reformat the page later when time permits.
Update: August 15, 2017 to John JACKSON b: 13 July 1883 d: 11 Dec 1929 and his children

JACKSON FAMILY TREES STEEPLE AND LOONBURN

The links beneath are to my rootsweb tree, which means the reader has access to much more detail in terms of the sources that I used to build the case for these relationships. There are also numerous tables of documentation that I have assembled and posted that shed light on the context of these two families:

JACKSONs of Steeple. There are a number of JACKSONs who are linked to Steeple by either land holdings or marriage - or are connected on the basis of my hunches. Many of them owned sizable land holdings in Steeple, Holywell & the town of Antrim – all very close together, as well as some holdings in nearby Loonburn Co. of Antrim.
