A Jackson line in Coleraine
The sources that I have used in constructing this JACKSON family tree are included in the footnotes beneath. Some of them may be more reliable than others all should be checked and double checked. I tend to work quickly so I can put together a possible picture and then I try to get feedback from others so we can all learn more. Also, there are records where the known facts don’t match up and I have made a few judgement calls. I am including the conflicting evidence in the hopes that others can sort me out.
At present, there are also some sources that I am totally discounting for the moment – primarily those JACKSON pedigrees that focus on the alleged lineage of these JACKSONs to the American president, Andrew JACKSON and/or the celebrated Stonewall JACKSON.
The key source that I started with was T.G.F. Patterson’s Notebook #5. An article Ballykeel A Narrow Townland, Eugene McCann. [Creggan: Journal of The Creggan Historical Society, 1997-98. No. 8.] built on his work and seemed likely to be more accurate on some points. This meant changing the parentage of Richard JACKSON of Forkhill from what I initially had. Then a will of Samuel JACKSON (d 1706) revealed several more connections which led me to BMDs in Yorkshire. Several of the names are still a mystery to me. I will add to their footnotes in the tree as I learn more.
The above named sources led me to The registers of the parish church of Whittington in the County of Lancaster. Christenings, burials, and weddings, 1538 to 1764 which revealed that Richard JACKSON, rector of Whittington, Yorkshire, had the following children:
One or more of these above named JACKSON children of Richard (or another unnamed sibling) were parents of the following sons (NOTE: a Rev. John JACKSON was a brother-in-law, so these sons could be the sons of either a female or a male JACKSON):

 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. 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 Westmoreland 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.

A firm friend to the Religious and Civil Constitution of his country, he exerted his most strenuous endeavours for its improvement by an almost constant residence on his estate, where, by the steady practice of all the virtues that adorn the retired paths of private life, by piety and rectitude in his own conduct, by humanity and benevolence towards all, by a lenient indulgence to his poorer tenants, and by the example of extensive agriculture, he used his utmost efforts to promote the temporal and eternal welfare of all who lived within the reach of his influence. Nor did he confine his pious and charitable intentions to the short period of his own life, but, by his extensive bequests he perpetuated and rendered permanent, schemes well calculated to promote the furtherance of piety and morality, and to diffuse the light of the Gospel by the extension of pure Christianity."

Carlow means the following excerpt could very well be the key to a husband for Rose JACKSON: Thomas Bunbury I (1673 - 1743) of Cloghna Thomas Bunbury of Cloghna and Cranovonane was born in 1673. It is not known when he acquired Cranovonane. In 1697, the year in which the first Lisnavagh House was built, he married Rose Jackson. The Bunburys were already well established in County Carlow - Thomas's father had been High Sheriff of the county in 1695. At some point, Thomas also acquired a property south of Carlow town at Cloghna, just off the N9 somewhere close to Tinryland. Rose Bunbury died at Cranavonane in February 1738 and Thomas followed in 1743. They left two surviving sons - Thomas and Benjamin.
