My purpose in assembling this table and highlighting various words is to support those researchers who are working to establish links between the various JACKSON families who emigrated to Ireland in the 1600s and then perhaps also went back and forth to England for reasons of study, business or family. The JACKSONs of Coleraine were definitely connected to the Clothworkers part of the plantation settlements in the early 1600s, but more is still to be learned of them. They were also not the only line of JACKSONs to settle in Ireland in this time frame, although it is not unlikely that other lines will turn out to have some tangential relationship with them. Leeds, Westmorland and Yorkshire were specific places that many of them hailed from.
The names that I have bolded are already in our family tree or else are likely suspects. The name MAULEVERER is also included because of the family connections to him that are noted on other pages.
The boxes that are shaded are key people in various trees.

Update May 31, 2013. Thanks to researcher Jan Waugh who pointed out an error in the source material for Deborah JACKSON.

Update:  March 2, 2016 I have added the BAINBRIGG records beneath. There are a number of intermarriages between this family and the JACKSONs in and around Kirkby Lonsdale

 I have added the BAINBRIGG records because there are a number of intermarriages between this family and the JACKSONs in and around Kirkby Lonsdale.





**Bainbridge, Thomas : spelt, indifferently, Bainbrigg : mat. pen. 1593 : B.A.
1596/7; M.A. 1600, incorp. Oxford, 1603; B.D. (lost); D.D. 1617. Elected
Fellow before Michm. 1599. Eleventh Master, 26 May 1622-1646. The
election was unusually quiet. The day before Mead wrote to Sir Martin
Stuteville : " tomorrow at 8 in the morning we choose a new Master. We
heare yet of no mandates, no, nor competitors but Dr Bainbridge." He was
Senior Fellow, but nothing whatever is on record of his doings for 22 years.
Will. Power (see page. 209) would have been a more natural successor to
Bp. Cary : Chappell may have seemed too Puritanic : Mead probably was
indifferent ; but nothing can be inferred from his letters. Bainbridge was a
Westmoreland man : probably of Kirkby Lonsdale. In early life he may
have been lax in character: in 1602 he was accused by two Fellows Dan.
Rogers and Will. Ames of immorality : but he appealed to the V.-C.'s court
for defamation of character, and it does not appear that his antagonists could
do more than quote a "very scandalous fame spread abroad both in town and
College." He was a man of little note, but of considerably stronger character
than Edmund Barwell—the weakest of our Masters. As a master he was
a strict disciplinarian, and especially troubled the Fellows by making them
preach the weekly sermons (loci communes) even in the Long Vacation : they
appealed in 1640 ; and Dr Cosin, the V.-C, decided that they were “not to be
vexed." He had the character of being too much addicted to his kinsfolk
like Barwell, he had many. He never had any preferment in the Church,
though Cole (I do not know why) judged him "to have sufficient obsequiousness."
He received the King when he was V-.C. in 1627-8 : and seems to have
supported Dorislaus, Lord Brooke's new Professor of History, when attacked
as too republican in his views : see Cooper, Annals, 2. 203. As a theologian
he was colourless : "Bainbridge, and Love of Benet, the two learned Neutralls
of Cambridge that have been taking a nap and sleeping at our distractions "
(Merc. Britannicus of Feb. 1644). At all events he was not anti-Puritan:
he complied with Will. Dowsing's requirements in the Chapel : and he was
suffered to remain when nine other Heads of Colleges were ejected : he died
in College and was buried, 9 Sept. 1646. Despite (or because of) the strictness
of his discipline the College increased largely in numbers in his time,
and except for two years was not much affected by the Civil War. Gerard
Wood as Praelector in 1642 speaks of him in the Admission book as "dignissimus
et vigilantissimus custos " : and Wood was on the Royalist side. He
had children most of whom seem to have died young : but one son, Edward,
graduated at Christ's in 1647. His widow Mary Bainbridge lived till Feb.
1670/1: she held several leases from the College, which seems strange; and she left to it a splendid silver-gilt salver.


Bainbridge, Christopher: admitted as Bainbrigg: son of Edward: born at
Marton, Westmoreland. School : Kirkby Lonsdale, under M'' Leake. Admitted
pensioner under M"" Alsop 16 June 1632. Age 16.
B.A. 1635/6; M.A. 1639; B.D. (mandate) 1661. Marton, Westmoreland
ought to be Long Marton near Appleby—very far from Kirkby Lonsdale : it
may have been his mother's home. According to Cole he was born at Middleton—
near Kirkby Lonsdale. In his epitaph at Clipston, if Bridges (2. 22) may
be trusted, he was born at Hawkin in Kirkby Lonsdale. His brother Edward
(1639) is entered as born at Kirkby Lonsdale. Elected Fellow before Xmas 1637.
Author of No. 22 of the (Latin) Justa Eduardo King (1638). Ordained deacon
(as Fellow) St David's 1638 May. Ejected 1644 : but he had payment till the end
of 1645. He disappears till Xmas 1660, when he reappears as third in the list of
Fellows between Dr More and Tho. Huxley (also an ejected Fellow). In 1661
and afterwards he stands first. Like Brearley and others, he "borrowed"
£17 (or more) of College money "in the confusion": it was repaid in 1671.
Presented to the vicarage of Caldecote 9 Nov. 1661 : to Clipston 3 Aug. 1669.
In due course Cudworth declared his fellowship vacant. But as he had held
it while vicar of Caldecote he desired to retain it as vicar of Clipston, (1) as
College Preacher—though Clipston was far more than 20 miles from Cambridge,
(2) as " President," a claim made more successfully in the next century by John
Boldero: his arguments will be found in the Registry book 92 (1) : but even
were a President necessary, as he argues, it would not follow that he was the
necessary President. Eventually according to Adam Wall (^Mm. v. 45. page
99) he signed a declaration that after obtaining peaceable possession of Clipston
he would within a year either resign his Fellowship and keep his living,
or resign Clipston and return to Cambridge. He chose the first alternative
and he received his last payment as a Fellow at Lady Day 1669. Alderman
Newton in his Diary, p. 41, mentions him as being at Cambridge on 3 Feb.
1668/9: so he succeeded in getting some extension of his "year of grace." He
held Clipston for 30 years, and died there, unmarried, 25 Feb. 169f, aged 85
according to the inscription put up by his nephew Edw. Bainbridge.
It does not appear that he was related to Thomas, the Master : and they
were of opposite political parties.


Bainbridge, Edward : admitted as Bainbrigg : son of Edward : born at Kirkby
Lonsdale. School: Kirkby, under Mr Carr. Admitted sizar under Mr (Chris.)
Bainbridge 1 June 1639. Age 17.
B.A. 1642/3; M.A. 1647. Possibly younger brother of Chris. Bainbridge,
his tutor. A Mr Bainbridge is Head master of Kirkby Lonsdale in 1650 and


Bainbridge, Edward: admitted as Bainbrigge: son of Thomas (the Master,
"dihgentissimi et vigilantissimi custodis"—says Gerard Wood): born at
Cambridge. School : Stortford, under Mr Leigh. Admitted pensioner under
Mr  Widdrington 6 Oct. 1642. Age [not given].
B.A. 1646/7; M.A. 1650. Probably the Edward Bainbridge who in 1702
gave ,£20 towards the reparation of the chapel.


Bainbrigge, Richard : son of Thomas : bom at Kirkby Lonsdale. School : Kirkby
Lonsdale, under Mr Jackson. Admitted sizar under M*" Anderson 5 June 1655.
Age 18. [NOTE: B abt 1637]
B.A. 1658 Mids.; M.A. 1667. Not easily identifiable. One (M.A.)
vicar of Kippax, Yorks., 3 Feb. 167|, patron, the Crown. One vicar of
Littlebury, Essex 27 May 1672, patron, the rector: resigned in 1673/4; and
was perhaps vicar of Witchford, Isle of Ely 1673-1701 ; but probably this
was the son of Ri. Bainbridge of Haddenham, and (perhaps) M.A. (Trin.)
1671. Before 1669 and in 1679 a Mr Bainbridge was master of Holt School,
whence he sent Nic. Banbridge, of Durham, to Christ's in 1669 : I think this
man the most likely.
NOTE: From Herald's Visitation of Cambridgeshire, 1684,  a RICHARD BAINBRIGG, M.A.,   Vicar of Witchford, Ely,  * Trin. Coll. Registers.  t   Prob.   14 Sept., 1696, Chancellor's Court, Cambridge.  $   Dated 13 Feb., 1699, Chancellor's Court, Cambridge.  tcwaas_002_1924_vol24_0015  148  BAINBRIG  OF  HAWKIN claimed his Arms—" on a chevron between three martlets  as many bucks heads cabossed: Crest a buck's head "-  claiming descent from a grandfather of the same name,  " first cozen (viz., brother's children) to Dr. Br. Bainbrigg  Mar of Christs College in Cambridge ob. cir. 1648 aet.  58 ann. descended out of the north."  [The Genealogist, vol. 3 (1879), p. 236.] The claim is annotated with the remark, "Taken from  a tobacco-box and are the arms of Bainbrigg of the  Bishoprick of Durham, only the birds there have legs,  to which they must make out their relation." … it confirms the blazon of Hawkin Hall, where martlets, not choughs, are represented.

Bainbridge, Thomas : son of Cuthbert : born in county Durham. School:
Kirkby Lonsdale, under Mr Garthwaite. Admitted sizar under Mr [Chris.]
Bainbridge 2 April 1661. Age 18. [NOTE: Born abt 1643]
B.A. 166 J; M.A. 1670. Subscribed 19 May 1665 on ordination at
London : licensed to cure of Mepal, Isle of Ely (Land. Regr.). One of these
names (and M.A.) rector of Plumstead, Norf. 12 Jul 1675 : and same day
instituted rector of Matlask, on condition of keeping a curate in the parish in
which he does not reside, if the income permits : the Bishop and others to be
judges. Perhaps the same man who was afterwards rector of Kelling St Mary
and Salthouse St Nicholas : died 1714. There was a Tho. Bainbrigge, M.A. of
Trinity, 1687.







[1] JACKSON, Nathaniel ( -1662), was ejected from the  Vicarage of Barwick-in-Elmet , eight miles from Leeds.  He is not mentioned by Calamy, but has a rightful place among the ejected nonconformists. He belonged to a Puritan family, being son of John Jackson, rector of Meltonby, near Pocklington, who had three sons. His elder brother, John Jackson was rector of Marske, near Richmond; presented in 1634 at Archbishop Neile's Diocesan Visitation for not reading prayers upon the eves of Sundays and Holy days, and sometimes omitting to wear the surplice; a member of the Assembly of Divines at Westminster, and preacher at Gray's Inn, but nevertheless a royalist ; and died at Barwick in 1648. Another brother, Timothy, was curate of Hackness and preacher at Wragby (1630-1647) ; his son John was vicar of Doncaster ; " He deserted the politics of his family and bowed to the storm" (Raine). Nathaniel was rector of Stonegrave (1629-1648), and soon afterwards of Barwick; " a godly, learned and painful preacher" (Pari. Sur.) ; signed the certificate of the ordination of Matthew Hill at Thirsk, June 14th, 1654 ; gave instruction to Thomas Hardcastle (vide) ; and continued until the Restoration, when Dr. Dalton was brought back, and he took up his residence in York (see Arlush), where he died soon after the Act of Uniformity came into operation. " He was interred in that great rendezvous of the Puritan party, the Church of All Saints, in the Pavement, November 1st, 1662, with the famous Edward Bowles and many others of his friends " (" Marske in Swaledale," by Canon Raine).

[3] John William Henry, who was educated at Cambridge and became a vicar in the Church of England. In 1842 he married Louisa Dorothy Christian, of the Isle of Man, and they had a son, John Charles. John William Henry became the eighth Baronet in 24th January 1879 and died on the 5th March 1879, having held the title and estates for less than six weeks. His son John Charles was educated at Cambridge and, like his father, took Holy Orders in the Church of England, thus being the Rev. Sir John Charles Molyneux, ninth Baronet. Although he would have had little time to spend in Ireland he retained the family estates with an estimated income of £10,000 per annum.
