The purpose of this post is because I am tracking JACKSONs of Kirkby Lonsdale in Westmorland and environs. Many of these JACKSONs settled in Ireland in the 1600s, and their descendants put down long-term roots. This is part of an attempt to sort them out. I have appended two wills beneath showing in the late 1500s: Hugh JACKSON=Isobel BAINBRIGGE, children: Miles JACKSON (b 1588) & Margaret JACKSON. NOTE: there was also a child named George JACKSON (b 1580) who was not mentioned in the will) SEE: Thomas Langdon and his Tradition of Learning. Rev. R. Percival Brown, Vicar of Kirkby Lonsdale April 23, 1925, p.46.

The registers of Middleton in Lonsdale JACKSONs

NOTE: Thirnbeck, Otway, Fawcett, Garnet, & others with business and/or familial relationships with Jacksons were also recorded in this parish register, as were other families with connections to Kirkby Lonsdale.Also, many of the families of Middleton associated themselves with the Parish Church of Kirkby Lonsdale rather than with the church of Middleton. Their records could be in either place.
