Under the Acts of Settlement & Explanation

NOTE: This branch of the ancient Devonshire family of JACKSON, of Combhay, was established in Ireland by FRANCIS JACKSON, Esq., a younger son of Joseph JACKSON, Esq. of Sneyd Park, in the co. of Kent, who passed over into that kingdom as captain of dragoons in Cromwell's army, and purchasing extensive landed property in the Barony of Tyrrawley and county of Mayo, had it shortly after the Restoration, confirmed to him and his heirs by patent of Charles II. He built a large fortified house at Enniscoe, on the banks of Lough Conn. He d. in 1678, leaving by Elizabeth his wife, a son. SOURCE: Burkes.

NOTE: Sneyd Park is located in Bristol, England where the Jacksons were power players - Merchants, ship owners, Mayors, Sheriffs.  They also had a residence across the border in Combe Hay, Somerset.  I call it their country home.  What is interesting is that there is a Pedigree for Myles Jackson of Bristol which indicates that he is "out of York".  Also, they have close ties to London and the Yorkie Jacksons are tied to London.

NOTE: An Oliver JACKSON is mentioned in 1720 in the Council Book of the Corporation of Drogheda 1649-1734. The name also turns up as a son and grandson of Francis JACKSON – the JACKSONs of Carramore.
