I am getting tantalizingly close to being able to click a number of these people into a family tree. At present, I have a stub of a tree including a number of JACKSONs from Woodfield aka Woodfieldglen in Co. Wicklow. If readers know more, it shouldn't take much to make a larger leap.

Over the course of a few hundred years, there continued to be a multi-generational presence of JACKSONs in Co. Wicklow. Many of the known family trees may turn out to be connected to each other. The families mentioned in “Spinian JACKSONs” will likely tie into the family related to the Thomas JACKSON of the first probate, as well as the JACKSONs at Boley, Eadestown. More work is needed. The family tree at JACKSONs of Wicklow tree is continuing to evolve as I add more info.
