1772 Oct 10 Probate of Ann JACKSON née COOTH (?-btw 1770-1772). She also married a Mr. WILLOUGHBY before she married Richard JACKSON (1709-1796) who is in the Gilbert JACKSON of Cuddeson family tree.
Sharon Oddie Brown. February 27, 2020


Rev. Richard JACKSON is included in the family tree of Gilbert JACKSON of Cuddeson.

This JACKSON family, which was first based in Lincolnshire and then in Cuddeston, Oxfordshire, is connected by marriage to other land-owning families in Co. Sligo. It may be significant that their family crest includes three birds [sheldrakes] that resemble the ones in the arms of the JACKSONs of Coleraine, Forkhill and Creggan – the latter two families were based in Co. Armagh.

A key source for the Cuddeson JACKSONs was transcribed from a family bible and can be found in: Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica Vol IV 1884.

It helps to read the following wills together in the context of the Gilbert JACKSON of Cuddeson family tree:

·        1725 Nov 12 Probate of Dame Anne MAY nee ALDWORTH (abt 1656-abt 1726). She was a great-aunt of both Gilbert JACKSON and Rev. Richard JACKSON (1709-1796)

·        1772 Oct 10 Probate of Anne COOTH . She was the wife of Rev. Richard JACKSON (1709-1796).

·        1779 Aug 2 Probate of Gilbert JACKSON (1704-1779). He was the brother of Rev. Richard JACKSON (1709-1796)

·        1796 Oct 3 Probate of Rev. Richard JACKSON(1709-1796).
