Leonard Jackson

[1] Leonard Jackson.

·       In 1705, he was mentioned in the will of his brother Samuel JACKSON, a merchant of Dublin.

·       Tatham St. James the Less church Leonard Jackson was instituted as Rector on 3 Feb 1699/1700 by Mary, Lady Morley, &c. upon the death of Thomas Sharpe. SOURCE: British History.

·       Jackson, Leonard: son of Richard : born at Whittington, Lanes. School : (1) Lancaster, under M'' Holden : (2) Kirkby Lonsdale, under M"' Garthwaite for a few months. Admitted sizar under M"' [Chris.] Bainbridge [who held his Fellowship till Mids. 1669] 20 May 1668. Age 17. B.A. 1671/2; M.A. 1677. Born 21 April 1650, of Jane the second wife of Richard (matd 1619) rector of Halton, then of Whittington near Kirkby Lonsdale: half-brother of Francis (1649). Ordained deacon, Chichester, 1673 May: priest, York, 1676 May. Rector of Claughton in Lonsdale, Lanes. 5 Sept. 1678: held it till 1681, when according to Croston-Baines (5. 534) he died : but he pretty certainly is the same who resigned the vicarage of Sheriff Hutton before April 1700: and on 3 Feb. of the same year he became rector of Tatham near Wennington. Added a steeple to the church tower 1722. Died 1734: or 1726 (Croston-Baines, 5. 555) when at all events he ceased to be rector, Robert Jackson succeeding. (Information from B. N. North, Esq., Kirkby Lonsdale. NOTE: This was Bordrigge North NORTH (1862-1936), a descendant of the NORTH family who purchased Jackson HALL) SOURCE: Biographical Register of Christs College 1505-1905.  Vol II 1666-1905 Compiled by John Peile. Cambridge University Press. 1913.

·       Leonard Jackson, a son of Richard Jackson, rector of Whittington, was educated at Christ's Coll., Camb.; M.A. 1677. He was a benefactor. In 1722 the churchwardens reported to the Bishop of Chester that the rector was in constant residence and held no other benefice; he was diligent in his duties and administered the Lord's Supper three times a year—at Easter, Michaelmas and the New Year. There was a duly licensed curate. SOURCE: British History.

·       An earlier Leonard JACKSON of Kirkby Lonsdale was married January 19, 1561, and he was probably the same one whose son was the Christopher JACKSON born 1564. There is likely a familial connection. His will was dated 1594.

[2] Tatham, Lancashire. See British History on Line.

·       In 1682, there was a will recorded for a Roger JACKSON of Tatham. SOURCE: A list of the Lancashire wills proved within the archdeaconry of Richmond, and now preserved in Somerset house, London from A.D. 1475 to [1748]. ed. Lieut.-Colonel Henry Fishwick. 1886. Since Leonard had a brother named Roger, it is tempting to suspect a connection. Further corroborating evidence is that Roger was not mentioned amongst the siblings in his brother William JACKSON’s will in 1688.

[3] Richard JACKSON (?- bef 1726). I have no record of a birth or death for this Richard JACKSON, nor do we have any record of a marriage for Rev. Leonard JACKSON.

[4] John BRIGGS was a brother-in-law – husband of Mary JACKSON.

·       1696 14 July. John Briggs, vicar of K. Lonsdale, and John Firbank, schoolmaster of K. Lonsdale, signed the anti-Jacobite "Association," formed throughout the Kingdom, for the protection of William III. K. Indictment Book, 1692–1724. SOURCE: British History – Kirkby Lonsdale.

·       A Johanna BRIGGS signature is on the probate page of this will. Could this be John BRIGGS? Notes on the Parish Church of Kirkby Lonsdale. By the Rev Canon Ware. The old bells were Ja. Graham, Thos Godsalve, Esq., Leo. Jackson, Rector of Tatham, John Briggs, Vicar, 1724.  John BRIGGS was the Vicar of Kirkby Lonsdale 1676-1737.

·       Given the propensity of families to intermarry more than once, it may be relevant that a Jacob JACKSON of Kirkby Lonsdale married a Mabellae BRIGGS in 1617. Also, a William JACKSON married an Agnes BRIGGS on May 19, 1690 at Kendal, Westmorland. She was from Stramongate. SOURCE: Family Search.

[5] Mary BRIGGS (probably the Mary JACKSON born 1660). She was mentioned in the 1679 will of her father, Rev. Richard JACKSON (1602-1681).

[6] Vigessima BOUCH[E] née JACKSON (1657-1734), daughter of Rev. Richard JACKSON & Jane CARTER, sister of Rev. Leonard JACKSON, and wife of Rev. Thomas BOUCH[E] who succeeded her father as Rector of Whittington..

[7] Elizabeth BOUCHE was the daughter of Rev. Thomas BOUCHE and Vigessima JACKSON (1657-1734). She married William DAWSON. Bunbury Family History. Thanks to Turtle Bunbury.

·       William Robinson IV was born in Linton Parish in 1708, a year before his Grandfather Peart died. On 24 September 1737, he was married at Arncliffe to Sarah Dawson (9 Dec 1713 - c. 1793), the eldest daughter of William Dawson, tailor, of Halton Gill by his wife Elizabeth Bouch. Sarah's siblings were Josias Dawson (1710-48), Elizabeth (1715-76), Thomas (who died as a child, 1717-29) and William (who died as an infant in 1721). [NB: A piece of trivia that diehard Bunbury genealogists might enjoy ... Elizabeth Bouch was a granddaughter of the Rev Richard Jackson, rector of Whittington Lancs. Another of the Rev. Jackson's granddaughters, albeit from a different line, was Rose Jackson who married Thomas Bunbury of Cloghna, County Carlow. Just to clarify, the Rev. Jackson's daughter Vigesima (1657-1734, by his later wife Jane Carter) married the curate Thomas Bouch (c. 1660-1716, who succeeded his father-in-law as rector of Whittington in 1680) and they were parents of Elizabeth Bouch. Thanks to Tom Robinson for this].

[8] Josiah DAWSON (1710-1748), son of William DAWSON & Elizabeth BOUCH.

[9] Elizabeth BOUCHE wife William DAWSON of was the daughter of Rev. Thomas BOUCHE and Vigessima JACKSON (1657-1734).

[10] HUTTON It may relate to Leonard being: pretty certainly is the same who resigned the vicarage of Sheriff Hutton before April 1700

[11] William HUTTON. There was a William HUTTON of the Manor House, Whittington.

[12] Jane WALLIS née ? A Jane JACKSON, sister of Leonard, died in the first year of her life.

[13] Rowland WALLIS of Kirkby. NOTE: In 1722, a Rowland WALLIS was listed in Witherslack Parish (Beetham)

[14] ? SLATER:

·       Mary SLATER was the grandmother of Rev. Leonard JACKSON. In a will dated July 31, 1657 (and probated much later), a Sir Thomas SCLATER (1615-1684) referred to his cousin John JACKSON a citizen now or late of London [that he [Henery SCLATER] shall pay unto my cozin John Jackson now or late of London citizen one hundred pounds and fifty pounds. …. Also my will is that the bill penall made to mee from my Cozen John Jackson of London & Andrew Heateley may not bee prosecuted against my Cozen John Jackson if in law itt can be ordered soe that it may bee recovered of Mr. Heateley.], as well as a cousin John OTWAY of Gray’s Inn. SOURCE: P 384 Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica Vol 1. 1874. John OTWAY of Gray's Inn was most likely Sir John OTWAY (1620-1693), who was a reader at Gray’s Inn. He was also a half-brother of Dorothy OTWAY, the first wife of Rev. Richard JACKSON (1602-1681). The John JACKSON (1609-aft 1626) which the will also left a bequest for, was probably the younger brother of Rev. Richard JACKSON. I believe that this John JACKSON married Hellen SIDGEWICKE in 1641 in Kirkby-Lonsdale, but otherwise, I know nothing else about him. NOTE: Does this mean that Mary SLATER was a near relation of Sir Thomas SCLATER – possibly his aunt?

[15] ? LAURENCE.

[16] A Bryan DOWNIE aka DOWNEY was a church warden at Whittington. He had a son Bryan born 1655.

[17] ? DOWNIE

[18] ? JACKSON. Leonard JACKSON had several unmarried sisters (plus one who married another JACKSON) but the reference is likely to his widowed sister-in-law, Elizabeth WOODS, wife of Nathaniel JACKSON (1640-1698), Based on her marriage registration, it seems that her family came from Burley and that her husband Nathaniel settled there.

[20] Cousin WADE. I do not know if this was John WADE (who had a son Benjamin) or whether it was Benjamin who may also have had a son named Benjamin.

Benjamin Wade was so warm in the royal cause, that he considerably involved his estate to support it. He sold an estate of 500l per annum, and spent not less than ten thousand pounds in the service of Charles. Was this the major in our siege? SOURCE: The History of Pontefract, in Yorkshire.
