NOTE: I have only noted the entries where there is a mention of JACKSONs. Also, I have not cleaned up all the OCR errors - just enough to make sense of most of it.

NOTE: The mention of Stamford is of interest because of connections to the Duddington JACKSONs of lands in this town. A Thomas JACKSON (1768-1800) died at Stamford. He was a descendant of Thomas JACKSON (d. 1694 and Frances THURSBY (d 1683) in the Duddington line of JACKSONs. SEE ALSO: SIMPSON-JACKSON links.
