This branch of JACKSONs starts in Yorkshire/Westmorland/Lancashire and connects to the JACKSONs who became successful merchants initially based in Coleraine, and then participants in the Siege of Derry, as well as representatives in the Irish House of Commons. Their behaviour was not always defensible by today's standards, or even by the standards of their own time.
NOTE: Their descendants also include Richard JACKSON of Forkhill, Co. Armagh.

NOTE: I have discounted some sources that allege a connection to the American president, Andrew JACKSON and/or Stonewall JACKSON. It does not mean that there is not a connection - only that I cannot yet prove it. Some of the pedigrees saved in PRONI, even though they are old, are based mostly on stories that the family thought were true. Evidence has since disproven some of them.
NOTE: Several footnotes are still left empty. This is a work in progress, Help is welcome.
NEW: Daughters of Rev. Richard JACKSON. A Mystery.
Sharon Oddie Brown. Major update Oct. 12, 2018. Addition Oct 14: William JACKSON (1671-1705)

 

A Jackson line from Kirkby Lonsdale, Westmorland and then in Ireland.

 

One essential source has been T.G.F. Paterson’s Notebook #5. It is held at the Armagh Archives. Eugene McCann built on Patterson’s  work in Ballykeel A Narrow Townland,. [Creggan: Journal of The Creggan Historical Society, 1997-98. No. 8.] Notes of the will of Samuel JACKSON (d 1706), done by Arthur Tenison Groves, were in Paterson’s Notebook #5, and revealed connections which led me to BMDs in Yorkshire. The registers of the parish church of Whittington in the County of Lancaster. Christenings, burials, and weddings, 1538 to 1764 was essential in the next steps.

 

Whittington is in Lancashire, but is only about 5 miles south of Kirkby Lonsdale which is in Westmorland. The Rev. Richard JACKSON was a rector at Whittington, but was born at Kirkby Lonsdale. NOTE: The parish of Kirkby Lonsdale is sometimes described by various JACKSON family members as being in Yorkshire, Cumbria or Lancaster. There is some truth in all versions - depending on the date. Regardless, both parishes were in the Diocese of Chester (see the map at Wikipedia). See also Timeline of Jacksons of Coleraine. Beetham Funeral Entries,, Whittington Jackson page,The Kirkby Stephen Parish Register and Coleraine in by-gone centuries, Rev. T.H. Mullin. D.D., Century Services, 1976

 

 

Kirkbly Lonsdale JACKSONs
The River Lune flows through Kirkby Lonsdale, and south past Whittington, and on through Tatham and Halton - all parishes where members of this family served as rectors. The School at Sedburgh also had a Richard JACKSON serving as a schoolmaster - also likely a relation.

[1] William JACKSON (abt 1575-1626)

  • JACKSON. The Kirkby Lonsdale family of JACKSON acquired great wealth and owned much property in Ireland and in Kirkby Lonsdale including what is now the Royal Hotel and which was formerly called Jackson Hall; all this passed eventually to the NORTH family, of Newton Hall (q.v.). William Jackson, of Kirkby Lonsdale, mercer, was father of the Rev. Richard Jackson, M.A., Rector of Whittington, Lancs., from 1641-81, whose daughter Janet, or Jennet, married Oliver North, of Newton, in 1674, dying in 1729. He also had two sons, William Jackson, of Ireland, and the Rev. Leonard Jackson, Rector of Tatham. William's daughter Abigail, who married firstly William Buckley of Wennington Hall and secondly Sir Oliver Crofton, Bart., eventually succeeded to all the family property which passed on her death s.p. in 1763 to her cousin, Richard North, of Newton; he gave it to his grandson, Miles North, who resided at Jackson Hall (Pearson, Annals; Chippindall, Whittington). Arms.  SOURCE: A Kirkby Lonsdale Armorial. R.S. Boumphrey. Read at Keswick, April 3, 1971
  • It seems that he had a 2nd wife: BURIAL:  wife Mrs. (  ), wife of Willi Jackson bur 5 Mar 1597 Kirkby Lonsdale, Westmorland  LDS I03668-8  1471665. MARRIAGE 2? Willi. Jackson and (__) mar 3 Nov 1599 Kirkby-Lonsdale, Westmoreland  LDS  I036684  1471665
  • He was dead when his son Francis JACKSON's apprenticeship papers were signed.
  • His birth date is assumed as approximate and is based on the date of his marriage to Mary SLATER. Naturally, if one or more marriages preceded this, he may have been born earlier.
  • QUESTION:  Was an Edward bur 1589 K-L , son of William?  I wonder if Edward was a brother of William the mercer and they are both sons of another William.
  • His April 20, 1626 will was probated that year.

[2] Mary SLATER

·       The name SLATER is often frequently mentioned in the Whittington Church Registers

·       JACKSON. The Kirkby Lonsdale family of JACKSON acquired great wealth and owned much property in Ireland and in Kirkby Lonsdale including what is now the Royal Hotel and which was formerly called Jackson Hall; all this passed eventually to the NORTH family, of Newton Hall (q.v.). William Jackson, of Kirkby Lonsdale, mercer, was father of the Rev. Richard Jackson, M.A., Rector of Whittington, Lancs., from 1641-81, whose daughter Janet, or Jennet, married Oliver North, of Newton, in 1674, dying in 1729. He also had two sons, William Jackson, of Ireland, and the Rev. Leonard Jackson, Rector of Tatham. William's daughter Abigail, who married firstly William Buckley of Wennington Hall and secondly Sir Oliver Crofton, Bart., eventually succeeded to all the family property which passed on her death s.p. in 1763 to her cousin, Richard North, of Newton; he gave it to his grandson, Miles North, who resided at Jackson Hall (Pearson, Annals; Chippindall, Whittington).

·       British History on line: Rector of Halton 1630'9641 (?). In 1640 the Bishop of Chester received a caveat, warning him not to present anyone to the rectory, vacant by the death of Daniel Meyre, except on the nomination of Dr. Thomas Fothergill, Master of St. John's Coll., Camb.; Act Bks. at Chester. Dr. Fothergill presented one who was instituted on 2 Nov. 1640 (Church Papers), but the name is illegible. It appears, however, that Dr. Fothergill, a fellow of St. John's, was himself presented by the University of Cambridge because Thomas Carus, the patron, had been convicted of recusancy about 1635. Fothergill alleged that the transfer of the patronage to Middleton was collusive; Duchy of Lanc. Plead, bdle. 365. Richard Jackson was presented on 16 Oct. 1640 by Edward Middleton of Middleton in Westmorland and again on 23 Jan. by William Middleton (as administrator of Edward), but was not instituted till 14 July. He compounded for first fruits on 15 July. The king also presented Jackson (12 July), 'by lapse,' no doubt for greater security. For the dispute see Pleas of Crown, 196/7. Mr. Jackson was a member of the Presbyterian Classis in 1646, and signed the 'Harmonious Consent' of 1648 as 'pastor at Whittington.' In 1650 he was commended as 'a godly preaching minister'; Commonw. Ch. Surv. 122. At the Restoration he conformed to Episcopacy and the Book of Common Prayer.

[6] Co. Westmorland. The historic county boundaries of Westmorland are with Cumberland to the north, County Durham and Yorkshire to the east, and Lancashire to the south and west. Hence, in some histories, the family is alleged to have come from Yorkshire or Lancashire - the boundaries at the time were somewhat flexible and not always exactly as we have them now.

[7] WHITTINGTON— not to be confused with Withington, near Manchester, nor Whittingham, near Preston — is a pretty village situate in extreme North-East Lancashire, about one-and- a-half miles from Kirkby Lonsdale. Its Church, dedicated to S. Michael, is known to have been in existence in the fourteenth century. Richard JACKSON became Rector of Whittington in 1641, July 26. The Parish of Whittington comprises 4,327 acres, including the townships of Newton, Docker, and Whittington, and contains a population of 339. The adjoining parishes on the Westmorland side are Burton and Kirkby Lonsdale, and on the Lancashire side Tunstall, Melling, and Warton. The Parish Registers share, with Whalley and Farnworth (near Widnes), the honour of commencing in 1538 — the year appointed by Vicar-General Cromwell.

He was of an ancient family long settled there and at Stanmer, and Sir Richard Michelborne of Bradhurst was his grandfather. After serving under Percy Kirke [q. v.] at Tangier between 1680 and 1683, he had a major's commission from the Prince of Orange dated 5 Feb. 1689, and in the same month took part in the attempt on Carrickfergus. He commanded Skeffington's regiment of foot at Cladyford and during the siege of Londonderry. When Governor Baker fell ill on 17 June 1689 he deputed Mitchelburn to act for him, and at his death ten days later named him governor SOURCE: Dictionary of National Biography Vol. 37, p343-344 NOTE: I believe this publication is in error when it states: His second wife is believed to have been the daughter of another defender, Captain Michael Cunningham of Prehen, Londonderry.

·       Siege profiles Londonderry Colonel John Mitchelburne was Governor of Londonderry from June 30, 1689 until the end of the siege. When Major Baker died, Mitchelburne succeeded him as Governor. Mitchelburne gave expression to the defiance of the Londonderry's defenders by planting a crimson banner on one of the city's bastions in full sight of the enemy. Mitchelburne's "bloody flag" occupies a place of honour in unionist folklore and tradition. John Mitchelburne was born on January 2, 1648, and probably joined the army in the late 1660s, initially serving in the ranks. In 1678 he purchased a lieutenant's commission. He served in Lord Mountjoy's regiment under Colonel Lundy and was stationed at Londonderry, Kinsale and Dublin. In February 1689 he received a commission from William III and was involved in several military engagements in Ulster. By April 1689 he was in Londonderry where Major Baker gave him command of Colonel Clotworthy Skeffington's regiment in which he had served since February. In May he quarreled with Baker but acted as a pall bearer at Baker's funeral. He served as military governor until the end of the siege when Major General Kirk made him sole governor. He was also given a second regiment by Kirk which he amalgamated with his existing regiment. This regiment served at the Boyne and the first siege of Limerick. In 1691 Mitchelburne commanded the Williamite force sieging Sligo but was removed for quarrelling with Hugh Balderg O'Donnell, whose assistance was of dubious value. Sligo surrendered to the Earl of Granard in September 1691. Mitchelburne was made temporary governor of the city. Mitchelburne was in Londonderry in the 1690s and was elected an Alderman for life. During this period he produced three publications: An Account of the Transactions in the North of Ireland, anno Domini 1691, The Case of the Colonel John Mitchelburne, Late Governor of Derry and The case of the governor, officers and soldiers actually concerned in the defence of Londonderry in the Kingdom of Ireland. The latter two publications formed part of Mitchelburne's campaign to secure arrears in pay for his regiment. Unlike George Walker, Mitchelburne inexplicably received no reward for his role in the siege. The third pamphlet resulted in his temporary dismissal as an Alderman. Despite a 25-year campaign the officers and men of the garrison were never paid. It was calculated that they were owed £195,091 in wages and another £138,349 for the purchase of arms and property damaged by the enemy. Mitchelburne spent the remainder of his life in Londonderry. In 1709 on one of his visits to London he was imprisoned for debt in the Fleet, which prompted the production of The Danger and Folly of Being Public-Spirited. The Apprentice Boys Association and its celebrations owe much to Mitchelburne who organised siege commemorations until his death. In 1692 Mitchelburne organised the first commemoration service and on that occasion placed captured French flags in the Cathedral. In 1713 he placed a memorial inscription at the east window of the cathedral. The following year he founded the first Apprentice Boys club. Mitchelburne died on October 1, 1721. In accordance with his own wishes, Mitchelburne was buried along side his comrade Adam Murray in Glendermott Old Churchyard. He left £50 in his will for the purpose of maintaining a crimson flag on the steeple. Mitchelburne was the first individual Defender of Londonderry after whom a Club was named to commemorate the defence and relief of Londonderry. A representative body of citizens met at his tomb to pay tribute to his memory.

·       Governor Mitchelburn.'97 Friday, 2lst June. Governor Baker had been ill from the beginning of June. His disease proved to be a fever, and from the middle of the month it became certain that he would not recover. On the 21st a council of war was called, in order to choose a successor. Two officers were sent to the house where he lay ill, to ask his opinion. The dying Governor, without hesitation, named Colonel Mitchelburn as the most suitable man. Mitchelburn was grandson of Sir Richard Mitchelburn, of Brodhurst Stanmer, in Sussex, and before coming to Derry had taken part in the ineffectual attempt to capture Carrickfergus and afterwards to prevent the Jacobite army from crossing the Bann. At an early part of the siege, in consequence of some suspicion attaching to him, we know not on what grounds, his arrest had been ordered by Baker. Stung with the insult, he drew on the * Avanx, p. 255.

·       Governor, and in the conflict Mitchelburn was wounded From that time he had been confined to his room by order of the Governor. He was now sent for to his prison, in order that he might be promoted to succeed the man who had ordered him into confinement. It shows that Baker was a true and a noble man, when he thus could bring himself to bestow the highest mark of honour upon an officer whom he once had injured by an unjust suspicion. It was alike a manly confession of his own error, and an honourable testimony to Mitchelburn's merit. He died about a week after, on the 30th of June, and Mitchelburn then took his place as military governor without farther appointment

·       Dictionary of National Biography MICHELBORNE, MITCHELBURN, or MICHELBURNE, JOHN (1647'961721), governor of Londonderry, son of Abraham Michelborne by his first wife, Penelope, daughter of John Wheeler of Droitwich (see Berry, Sussex Genealogies, p. 50), was baptised on 8 Jan. 1647'968 at Horsted Keynes in Sussex. He was of an ancient family long settled there and at Stanmer, and Sir Richard Michelborne of Bradhurst was his grandfather. After serving under Percy Kirke [q. v.] at Tangier between 1680 and 1683, he had a major's commission from the Prince of Orange dated 5 Feb. 1689, and in the same month took part in the attempt on Carrickfergus. He commanded Skeffington's regiment of foot at Cladyford and during the siege of Londonderry. When Governor Baker fell ill on 17 June 1689 he deputed Mitchelburn to act for him, and at his death ten days later named him governor. The two officers had been on bad terms and had even crossed swords, and the author of the 'Londerias' says Mitchelburn was under arrest when his predecessor died; but Walker, Mackenzie, and Ash do not mention this. He was a pall-bearer at Baker's funeral. Though not confirmed by any vote of the officers, Mitchelburn acted as military governor during the rest of the siege; but Walker always signs his name first. About the middle of July Melfort, on behalf of King James, offered Mitchelburn 10,000l. if he would procure a surrender, but the governor answered that William was his sovereign, who could reward him without the help of brass money (Letters in Siege of Derry, act iv.) He lost his wife and all his children'97seven in number'97during the siege. After the relief of Londonderry Kirke commissioned Mitchelburn as sole governor, and made him colonel of both Skeffington's and Crofton's regiments, which he fused into one. Mitchelburn commanded this corps at the Boyne, and mustered 664 rank and file after the battle (Story). He served at the long siege of Sligo, of which he took possession 19 Sept. 1691, and of which he was made governor (Harris).

·       In 1690 the Irish Society voted £100. to Mitchelburn, but he had spent his own money during the siege of Londonderry, and was a heavy loser. He petitioned the English treasury, alleging that £9,570. 16s. 8d. were due to him and his regiment (Cal. of Treasury Papers, 21 April 1691). Various delays and difficulties were interposed, but it appears that some portion of what was due was at length paid to him (Harris, book viii.) He remained permanently at Londonderry, and became alderman. In 1699 he issued a printed statement of his losses, which gave great offence at Londonderry, and he was expelled from his office of alderman (Corporation Minutes in Hempton, p. 406). He succeeded in the litigation which followed, and was restored by mandamus. A result of the statute 2 Anne, cap. 6, which imposed the sacramental test, was to exclude Mitchelburn's presbyterian opponents from the corporation, and in August 1703 his bill of costs was paid. He made at least two journeys to London on account of his claims, and in 1709 suffered imprisonment for debt in the Fleet.

·       Mitchelburn originated some well-known Londonderry observances. With Bishop King's leave he placed in the cathedral the French flags which had been taken on 7 May 1689, and in 1713 Bishop Hartstonge allowed him to record the fact in an inscription on the east window (ib. p. 410). On 1 Aug. 1718 the red flag, which still adorns the steeple, was hoisted for the first time, as Bishop William Nicolson [q. v.] has recorded (ib. p. 411), amid great rejoicings and feastings and with illuminations and salvoes of artillery. On the same day in 1720 Mitchelburn dined with the bishop, and there were more bonfires. By his will, dated 12 July 1721, he bequeathed £50. 'for maintaining the flag on the steeple of Derry.' He died in his own house at the waterside, within sight of the walls which he had defended, on 1 Oct. 1721, and was buried near Adam Murray [q. v.] in Glendermot churchyard, co. Derry. His second wife is believed to have been the daughter of another defender, Captain Michael Cunningham of Prehen, Londonderry. By her Mitchelburn had no issue. A portrait of Mitchelburn in armour, by an unknown artist, is mentioned by Bromley. Mitchelburn's sword is preserved at Caw House, Londonderry, and his saddle, which was also used by Walker, is in possession of the Dublin society of 'Apprentice Boys of Derry,' who use it in their installation ceremonies.

·       The Dublin University Magazine: A Literary and Political Journal, Volume 45. "Ireland Preserved, or the Siege of Londonderry, together with The Troubles of the North, written by the then Governor (Part I. London, 1707, Fol.) '97 Col. John Michelbourne, who jointly with Walker defended this place, wrote this tragi-comedy, in the Fleet, into which the government's neglect of him threw him. It is a kind of narrative of proceedings during the siege, in two parts, illustrated with a prospect of King James's camp, on the plains of Kildare, and a survey and plan of the town at the time of the siege; and at the end, as a third part, the "Author's Case," by which it appears the House of Commons, on the report of a committee in 1698, voted an address to King William for some compensation to him, which the King agreed to, but which does not appear to have taken place. My copy of this singular performance (Gough wrote in 1080), which was never printed or published, has the following original MS. letter from the author to Secretary Harley: "'Fleet, December 17,1707. "' Sir,'97 During my confinement I have spent some vacant hours in writing The Siege of Derry, with some passages before and after; when your convenience will allow yon to look into it, I presume you will find it entertaining. It is the first I have exposed to view, and what errors you may find in it I hope you will pardon, being communicated to none but yourself, and I design it shall go no further during life. And since such a subject cannot be writ without touching on some men's mismanagement, & the freedom that is taken in it will make some excuse for other faults committed by, Sir, your faithful and most humble servant, "'John Miohelbourne.'"

·       Scotch Irish pioneers in Ulster and America ­ p 37-38. To understand the conditions in Ulster in 1718 it will be necessary to know the Irish Society, or as it was called legally The Society of the Governor and Assistants of London, of the New Plantation in Ulster, in the Kingdom of Ireland. This Society held sway over the present county of Londonderry, between the rivers Foyle and Bann, leasing or subletting its valuable rights and privileges to local officials. The territory about Coleraine thus came by lease into the hands of the Jackson family. Ambitious to acquire both property and power, they were often at odds with the authorities in London, and were driven by these conditions to hold their territory at excessive rates imposed by the none too friendly London directors. In the year 1713 complaint was made that


Mr. William Jackson had three uncles who with himself and two tenants were aldermen, so that six out of the twelve aldermen of Coleraine obeyed his orders. Five of the twenty-four burgesses, or members of the lower house, were his tenants, and Mr. Jackson desired to fill a vacancy with another tenant of his, living ten miles away at Kilrea; this tenant was moreover brother of a burgess, and both were sons of Alderman Adams. Thirteen members of the Common Council (which included Aldermen and Burgesses) called upon the mayor for a judicial investigation of the matter, but the mayor, who was a relative of Jackson's,* refused to accede to their request although it was made according to the law. This was but the beginning of discord in the Bann valley. In 1728 the Society expressed dissatisfaction with the Jackson family, which had opposed the political interest of the Society, and had through control of the Corporation of Coleraine usurped the power to grant lands. The long arm which reached out from London had no sooner quieted Coleraine, than Derry (the early name for Londonderry) was in trouble for disregarding its by-laws. These controversies probably had little influence upon the lot of the humbler tenant except along the Bann where the Jackson sway was felt. It was "commonly reported" that the Hon. Richard Jackson was forced to raise the rents of his tenants in order to meet his obligations; and that these tenants, who lived upon lands within the jurisdiction of the Clothworkers Company near Coleraine, began agitation for the first great Scotch-Irish emigration to America.

·       The fact of a Thomas BUNBURY in another generation being a witness to the will of Richard JACKSON of Forkhill, as well as the Benjamin BUNBURY who was a High Sherriff (as several JACKSONs were) and as well as a significant JACKSON presence in Co. Carlow means the following excerpt could very well be the key to a husband for Rose JACKSON: Thomas Bunbury I (1673 - 1743) of Cloghna Thomas Bunbury of Cloghna and Cranovonane was born in 1673. It is not known when he acquired Cranovonane. In 1697, the year in which the first Lisnavagh House was built, he married Rose Jackson. The Bunburys were already well established in County Carlow - Thomas's father had been High Sheriff of the county in 1695. At some point, Thomas also acquired a property south of Carlow town at Cloghna, just off the N9 somewhere close to Tinryland. Rose Bunbury died at Cranavonane in February 1738 and Thomas followed in 1743. They left two surviving sons - Thomas and Benjamin.  SOURCE: Turtle Bunbury’s website

  • Ten Troubled Years. Kyla Madden. Colonel John Ogle was an English soldier in the 19th Foot Regiment, although little else is known about his background. In 1790 or 1791 he married Julia Eliza Barton, daughter of Susanna Barton and niece of the late Richard Jackson, and Colonel and Mrs. Ogle lived on the Forkhill estate throughout the 1790s. In 1796, Ogle received permission to form a local yeomanry corps and headed the Forkhill Yeomanry throughout the years of rebellion.  Local legends abound about Ogle, who was reputed to have been a rough authority figure. The Northern Star, in particular, portrayed him as a brutish soldier. See Senior, Orangeism in Ireland and Britain, 32. Colonel Ogle died in England in July 1830, from injuries sustained after falling from his carriage. His wife, Julia Eliza, had died in Dublin several months before.

Nor did he confine his  pious and charitable intentions to the short period of his own life, but, by  his extensive bequests he perpetuated and rendered permanent, schemes  well calculated to promote the furtherance of piety and morality, and to  diffuse the light of the Gospel by the extension of pure Christianity."     A copper Alms Dish is inscribed : " The gift of the Rev.

·       TGF Patterson Notebook 5, of Coleraine  BA 1702 Called to Irish bar 1710.) was born 1680. 

·       He married 1715 Margaret BERESFORD Sister to the Marquis of Waterford. SOURCE: John Drebett, The Baronetage of England, NOTE: This relationship as sister to the Marquis seems unlikely. It has the feel of a few generations being conflated. It is possible that she was a sister of Sir Tristram BERESFORD (1669-1701) whose son Sir Marcus BERESFORD (1694-1763) was in turn the father of the 1st Marquess of Waterford (George de la Poer BERESFORD (1735-1800), but even that is not a terribly good fit.

·       NOTE: There are some puzzling aspects to the name of Thomas JACKSON’s wife. There is a Thomas JACKSON who died in 1751 who was of Creekstown, Co. Meath, whose widow was named Anne – not Margaret. Given the family land connections to the BALL family, who owned the lease for this land, this would seem to be the same person. Perhaps there was a 2nd wife, as yet unknown.

·       In 1727, he held a seat in the Irish House of Commons for Coleraine. His birth date and death date are noted in a list of members of the Irish House of Commons 1692-1800.

Subsequently he raised a body of men at his own expense, and served during the war in Ireland, participating in the battle of the Boyne, and contribute eminently, by his gallantry and skill, to the success of the party with which he was engaged. For these services he received the appointments of deputy governor of the County of Derry, Colonel of the militia, and one of the commissioners of array, and was also granted by his royal master a large tract of land in the County of Derry, still possessed by his descendent.

o   Born in 1700 – It is not known if John was born in Bellaghy as his father Adam Downing in his will described himself as being from Rocktown, but John became ‘of’ Bellaghy living at ?Rowesgift? [approx.1 mile from Bellaghy on the A 54 the Bellaghy to Castledawson road] after his father-in-law gave him and his new wife Anne nee Rowe the house as a wedding gift, exact marriage date not known, they named the house Rowesgift after the Rev. Simon Rowe. On modern day maps itsspelt – Roe?s Gift. I have a 1788 deed which uses the correct spelling– Rowesgift.

o   Death 8 -11 Nov. 1785 [Belfast Newsletter Index number 191526 page 3]. The Belfast Newsletter Index states he was a magistrate and a Major in the Loughinshillin [sp] Battalion Volunteers, spelling now Loughinsholin. His wife Anne nee Rowe born 1711, died the 2nd Feb. 1776 aged 65 years, buried in the Downing vault, St. Tida?s Church, Bellaghy, [name/death date/age on the marble, west side].

o   To date John Downing?s grave has not been found.

  • This is also interesting: The Waller family and Snaith. One of the largest local landowners in the Snaith area in the late 16th century was Nicholas Waller. There were actually two men called Nicholas Waller at this time: father and son. The elder lived at Sykehouse and the younger at Balne. It is sometimes difficult to decide which of the two is being referred to. In fact, the son died before the father. The settlement of lands made by Nicholas Waller the elder.
  • There is, at the Borthwick Institute at York, a fascinating document dating from 1623 which gives an idea of the extent of the property owned by Nicholas Waller the elder. It is dated 18 June 1623. These are edited extracts.
    • The agreement was made between:Nicholas Waller of Sykehouse, gentleman and Sir Thomas Dawney of Cowick and Sir John Jackson the elder of Hickleton, knights; John Dawney of 'Stedfold' and Henry Lee of Huscroft, esquires; William Rokeby of Hotham and Thomas Wormeley of Cusworth, gentlemen; Edmund Yarburgh of Balne and Sarah his wife; Thomas Vincent of Warmsworth and Susanna his wife; and Thomas Bosevile of Warmsworth, gentleman.
  • He was not mentioned as living in his brother William's 1688 will. Initially, this led me to suspect that he was the father of the Richard JACKSON of Drogheda, husband of Alice. The problem is that the dates do not quite line up. Richard & Alice JACKSON of Drogheda had their first known child in 1670. Supposing that Richard JACKSON to be at least 20 years old, he would have been born in 1650 when the Richard JACKSON of Skipton was just 15 years old. This is not impossible, but it is unlikely.

The tithes were paid to the Cathedral of Christ Church, as they had, no doubt, been in mediaeval times to the Priory of the Holy Trinity. After the restoration of the lands, on which the two houses and a population of nine Irish, were granted amongst much other property, to the Duke of York, afterwards James II, and remained in his possession until his abdication. Some years after that event, in 1703, there were put up for auction by the trustees of the forfeited estates, and sold to Mr Samuel Jackson. They subsequently became the property of Sir Oliver Crofton, Bart, whose baronetcy, conferred on an ancestor after the restoration, became extinct on his death. Crofton was a rollicking blade, and did not bear the most immaculate character. In early life he had stood his trial for killing a man, one of the Massys of Duntrileague, in a duel, and his proceedings, after the death of his predecessor in the title, had not been to his credit. Attempts were made from time to time to induce people to build on the excellent sites which the lands of Ballinclea afforded, and finally Crofton came to live there himself. Loftus, whose lands adjoined, found Crofton a most unpleasant neighbour, and, on his boundary wall being thrown down by Crofton and his servants, sought, in 1765, the protection of the House of Commons. The house found that a breach of privilege and been committed, and some of Crofton’s servants, who had insulted Loftus, were taken into custody.

·       1726. Robert Jackson, nephew to the Rev.

He dying unmarried and intestate, his property devolved on his two sisters Jane and Abigail. Jane also died unmarried and intestate and her share passed to her sister Abigail, who was married twice, viz. first to William Buckley of Wennington Hall, and secondly to Sir Oliver Crofton, an Irish baronet. She had no issue by either husband and died in 1763, when Richard North of Newton took her estate as cousin and heir-at-law ; he gave it to his grandson, Miles North of Whittington and Kirkby Lonsdale, who thus became the owner of large estates, both in England and Ireland, and was able to describe himself as an esquire.

A Michael JACKSON (who would be a good fit with respect to time and place) was mentioned in the will of his grandfather, Michael HARRISON. Although the surviving Lisburn church registers do not record any relevant baptism, marriage or burial for this JACKSON family, a Roger JACKSON was listed as a Churchwarden in April 1699 and again in April 1700 and then replaced June 19th, 1700 (possibly because he had just died).SOURCE:   Churchwardens of Lisburn Cathedral as cited in The Harrison Family.

  • NORTH. The North family, of Newton Hall, Lancs., has had many connections with Kirkby Lonsdale, and Miles North (1738-95), who in 1781 purchased Thurland Castle, resided at Jackson Hall which is now the Royal Hotel. His son, Richard Toulmin North, of Thurland Castle (born 1782), who built the houses 58, 6z, 66 and 68 Main Street, Kirkby Lonsdale, sold Jackson Hall. On his death unmarried in 1865 the family became extinct in the male line but his great- nephew, North Burton (1824-191o), who sold Thurland Castle in 1885 to Lt-Col. Edward Brown Lees and lived at Newton Hall, assumed the name North. The present representative of the family is Richard Coulthurst North. Arms.

[430] Vigesima JACKSON (1657-1734)

  • Though the Whittington baptism register 1657 doesn't actually state her fathers name, researchers have always assumed she must be a daughter of Richard from her social standing with her marriage to the then curate, who followed Richard Jackson as the next Rector.
  • "Michael Bouche 1st recorded of the line whose son Anthony 1599-1672was sheriff of Cumberland. The Rev Thomas Bouche will dated 1714 and youngest son of Anthony Bouche and Rector of Whittington, seems to have been the last male heir, Rector of Whittington" (Armorial for Cumberland, Frederick James Field, 1937, Google books copy read at Brit Lib.). Not yet sure whether Rev Thomas Bouch is the son of the sheriff or whether there is a generation in between the wording is not clear. Her mother was Vigesima Jackson (chr 6 sept 1657 at Whittington) the daughter of the previous Rector, Rev Richard Jackson, son of William Jackson mercer of Kirkby Lonsdale. Vigesima was the dau of Richard's 2nd wife Jane Carter 26 Jan 1647 618. (Whittington parish register SOURCE: Turtle Bunbury
  • Also from Turtle Bunbury: Elizabeth Bouch was a granddaughter of the Rev Richard Jackson, rector of Whittington Lancs. Another of the Rev. Jackson's granddaughters, albeit from a different line, was Rose Jackson who married Thomas Bunbury of Cloghna, County Carlow. Turtle Bunbury site. _ Just to clarify, the Rev. Jackson's daughter Vigesima (1657-1734, by his later wife Jane Carter) married the curate Thomas Bouch (c. 1660-1716, who succeeded his father-in-law as rector of Whittington in 1680) and they were parents of Elizabeth Bouch_.

She was the last of the sisters called Mary to be born, so the others must have died before 1660, and she was still alive in 1726.
