The early roots of this line of Jacksons in Co. Down – presuming there are earlier roots to be found in Co. Down – may be connected to the James JACKSON of Ballymiscaw, Parish of Dundonald. That James JACKSON was a son of Gilbert JACKSON, and his likely dates would make him to be in the right time frame to be a grandfather of Robert Jackson (1815-1884) beneath. The tree for that line of JACKSONs is at The Jacksons of Co. Down. The names and dates are all based on evidence prepared for Oinri Jackson. Sources are available on request.
