There are now more than three dozen JACKSON family trees posted to my site. My interest is in tracing the connections of JACKSONs from England and Scotland who settled in Ireland, as well as the interconnections between the various lines of JACKSONs who lived in Ireland. I am also interested in those whose family arms included the image of three birds, preferably shovellers or sheldrakes aka shelducks. There is a strong likelihood – albeit proof is a work in progress - that these JACKSONs are all related - albeit distantly.
WARNING - not all these trees have enough proof to always be accurate.

Jackson Family Trees Index

 

The most up to date versions of these trees are in my Rootsweb tree. I cannot always update all these pages – there are too many trees by now. A virtual forest. For the JACKSONs who are part of my own line, I am informed by the following clues (as you can see - they don't all agree):

  • Amy Oliver JACKSON (1874-1962), daughter of Sir Thomas JACKSON: The Jacksons came from Northamptonshire and went to Ireland in Elizabeth's reign [, and were given grants of land in Co. Carlow (N. Leinster) for distinguished service in the Army. SEE: The Tudor Conquest of Ireland. JACKSONs may have begun to settle as part of the 1570s plantations in Co. Antrim, Londonderry & Coleraine.
  • The heraldic arms of Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915) included three shoveller birds, perhaps a clue to his ancestry SEE: JACKSON family crests.
  • The JACKSONs of Duddington originated in Northamptonshire, and although they had heraldic arms that included a greyhound and three eagle heads, the grave markers at St. Mary’s Duddington clearly include three duck-like birds which look like shovellers. NOTE: The JACKSONs from Duddingham are related to the Fanningstown, Co. Limerick tree, and also to the JACKSONs of Godmanchester (in the Huntingdonshire district of Cambridgeshire). The latter tree starts with a William JACKSON who died 1625, and includes Original JACKSON. Although the latter JACKSON families came from Cambridgeshire, and the former from Northamptonshire, the churches where they are buried are only twenty miles apart.
  • The JACKSONs from Kirkby Lonsdale, Westmorland in the mid-1600s had arms that included the same birds as shown in the arms of Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915). The settled at Coleraine, Dublin, Armagh and elsewhere.
  • Sir Thomas JACKSON supposedly owned a farm in Co. Kildare. I have not yet located it, hence my interest not only in the JACKSONs of Co. Kildare, but also those JACKSONs in the counties that border Kildare: Meath to the north, Kings aka Offaly & Queens aka Leix aka Laois to the west, and Dublin to the east. 
  • See also: Jacksons mentioned in Cromwellian grants.
  • Blin Brown’s (1886-1963) 1938 Notes on Family History: The forebears of the Jacksons are said to have come from York in England, and to have moved to Ireland with Cromwell.  They were given large grants of land in Co Carlow and Kilkenny called Mount Leinster, Borris.  This estate was entailed.  George sold out his interest in it in the mid 1700s and moved to the Crossmaglen area in Co Armagh, where he was master of the charter school. NOTE:.  It is possible that “our” JACKSONs came first in Elizabeth times – before 1603 – and then returned to England because of unrest. Then they resettled in Ireland after the Cromwellian conquest.

JACKSONs of Kirkby Lonsdale and Lancashire. This tree includes the famed blacksmiths who did much work that still stands in Kirkby Lonsdale today. My personal interest in this tree is twofold:

·       I am curious to find out whether this branch is connected to William JACKSON (abt 1575-1626) of Kirkby Lonsdale (the lands he once owned included the land where the current Royal Hotel can be found). This line of JACKSONs had several sons who emigrated to Ireland in the 1600s: Coleraine and Dublin, as well as elsewhere.

·       This branch may also be connected to the JACKSONs who were active in Drogheda in the mid-1600s. They were part of the emergent yeoman, merchant, tradesman class (there seem to have been overlaps).

The Santry family tree has been merged into this tree. I have bolded some of the names in the family tree to help other follow their connections to other lines of JACKSONs.

·       In abt 1600, Thomas JACKSON, a pewterer in London was born.

·       In 1604, Rev. John JACKSON was born. His family continued on where he had settled at Twyford, Berkshire.

·       Rev John JACKSON's grandson was Samuel JACKSON, a merchant who died in Philadelphia.

One of Rev John JACKSON's sons was the Rev Daniel JACKSON of Santry, Dublin, Ireland, whose descendants continued on in Ireland.

JACKSONs of Duddington [aka Doddingham], Northamptonshire, England. The tree begins with Nicholas JACKSON (1570-1662) and is of special reasons for two reasons. The alleged Irish roots during the Elizabethan era of the family of Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915), as well as their connections to Co. Kildare. The earliest known Irish-settled family is that of Francis JACKSON (1670-1740) who died in Fanningstown, Co. Limerick. I have highlighted the Irish-linked people in blue so they are easier to see. There will likely be more to add as I continue with this work – and as other contributors pitch in with whatever they can find.

Quaker Jacksons in Ireland. In a family tree that is prevalent on the internet, these JACKSONs originated in Yorkshire. I have included the Yorkshire bits, although I consider their link as unlikely (at the same time, I realize that my take on this is controversial). The more reliable research (in my opinion) starts with Anthony JACKSON (1599-1666) of Eccleston, Lancashire, England. The story is that at least three of this his sons emigrated to Ireland:

·       John JACKSON (1624-) of Eccleston, Lancashire (and his name may have been Robert JACKSON, the head of a line of JACKSONs who settled in Co. Down).  SEE: Jacksons of Co. Down.

·       Richard JACKSON (1626-1679) whose descendants lived at Mountmellick, Parish of Rosenallis, Queens County. One daughter was born at Carrickfergus in 1651, and one son at Lisburn in 1653.

·       Anthony JACKSON (1628-1681/96), He died in Co. Cavan. Anthony Jackson of Eccleston, Lancashire came to Ireland in 1649 and settled at Lurgan with his brother Richard. SOURCE: Richard S. Harrison, A Biographical Dictionary of Irish Quakers, (Four Courts Press, 1997), p64.

Because of other JACKSONs in Co. Meath, this name is worth highlighting:

·       Richard JACKSON (1670-1742) b: Abt. 1670 in of Oldcastle, Co. Meath d: 1742

Also of interest in this tree, are the JACKSONs who were prominent in the printing trades in Dublin in the late 1700s, such as Isaac JACKSON  (1705-1756).It would not surprise me if these JACKSONs turn out to be related to the Lisnaboe JACKSONs. Their politics were certainly congruent – both families supported the values of the United Irishmen, and were active in the movement in Dublin. Update: November 22, 2017. A major error has been corrected. All references to Killynure in Saintfield, Co. Down have been removed. The townland of Killinure was actually in Queens Co., which makes much more sense.

Quaker Tree # 3. Richard JACKSON (abt 1626-1679) was one of the early Quaker JACKSONs in Ireland. It is said that he served as a soldier in the Parliamentary Army in England before emigrating to Ireland. His descendants include Stonewall JACKSON aka Thomas Jonathon JACKSON. This tree is also included in the Quaker JACKSON tree. The most up-to-date version will always be included in my Rootsweb tree. Update: November 22, 2017. A major error has been corrected. All references to Killynure in Saintfield, Co. Down have been removed. The townland was actually in Queens Co., which makes much more sense.

Jacksons of Steeple & Loonburn & Islandmagee - Antrim. It seems likely that the George JACKSON (1773-1797) in the first tree, whose ancestors owned land at Steeple, Parish of Antrim is a good possibility for the George (or Luke) JACKSON (b. abt 1775) in the second tree who owned land at Loonburn.

JACKSONs of Ahanesk, Co. Cork Photos of ruins at Ahanesk on this page. Starts with John JACKSON (born prob early 1600s) of Ballyduff, Co. Waterford. NOTE: This tree has been superseded by the Jacksons of Waterford & Cork tree. All future updates will be made there. This tree is interesting when looked at in connection with the Jacksons of Glanbeg. In each tree, there is a Mary WALLIS, daughter of Thomas WALLIS who marries a JACKSON. In the Glanbeg tree, it is a Thomas JACKSON and in the Ahanesk tree, it is a George JACKSON. Whether this is a coincidence, or an error in the secondary sources that I used (ie. Burkes), or whether there is a relationship here still to be discovered, I do not as yet know. I have an outline tree here followed by a detailed report. Updated: February 9, 2017

JACKSONs - one line based in Co. Carlow & Co, Wicklow This line of JACKSONs were based in both Co. Wicklow and Baltinglass as well as Brough in Co. Carlow. Some of my connections in this tree are based on far-fetched hunches - but I have included the level of proof – or lack of it - so I hope that any errors do not echo into posterity! As I learn more, I will fix it up. I am grateful for the help from Inga JACKSONs posts to the Carlow List Serve as well as emails from other participants on that list. Eagle Hill is variously described as being in Co Wicklow and in Hacketstown Co. Carlow. The tree starts in the early 1700s with an Unnamed JACKSON. The earliest named is a John JACKSON – likely in the late 1700s who married a Sarah JACKSON. Of interest is Peter JACKSON, a draper. It would be worth looking at links to the Co. Antrim and Co. Dublin Peter JACKSONs. Updated June 20, 2010


JACKSONs of Spinians and Baltinglass.This is just a start for this particular tree. I still have a bit more deeds work to do. I expect that soon, I will be able to attach these JACKSONs to JACKSONs - one line based in Co. Carlow & Co, Wicklow. Details of many of these deeds as well as other research (grave inscriptions etc) are already entered in my Rootsweb tree.

JACKSONs of Co. Kildare Outline Tree-1 & JACKSONs of Co. Kildare Detailed Tree-1 with sources, many thanks to Major John G. JACKSON, and based on a family tree done by James Marcus Neville Jackson, The tree starts with a Thomas JACKSON (?-1690) of Athgarvan & Kineagh, Co. Kildare who built the Stone House of Monistrevan [aka Monastereven]  which I would have thought was in Kings Co., and in a parish which was not contiguous with Athgarvan & Kineagh, Co. Kildare. Based on a family crest (3 eagles heads), they may be related to the Jacksons who lived in Cumberland, Sunderland County Durham, Bedale Yorkshire and Combhay Devonshire. JACKSONs still reside in some of the same townlands. They may all turn out to be related. Updated: February 25, 2012

JACKSONs of Co. Cork The JACKSON name was associated with Co. Cork in the early 1600s during the first Plantation settlement. How or even if those very early JACKSONs hook up with this lot, I don't know. This tree begins with a Thomas JACKSON born in late 1600s, and connects to the names of STRETTELL and DEVONSHIRE They are a subset of the JACKSONs of Duddington. Updated: August 23, 2016

JACKSONs - various shrubs (not quite trees) based in Carlow

1.     Roger JACKSON of Tullow Co. Carlow. Probably born abt 1670-1680.

2.     Rev. Daniel JACKSON of Santry. Updateds done after January 2012 are now at Jacksons of Derbyshire, Berkshire, America & Dublin.

3.     Thomas JACKSON – origin not noted, born abt 1700.

4.     Michael JACKSON b 1740 of Graigue, Queens Co.. (Boundaries have changed, and this is now part of the town of Carlow, Co. Carlow.

5.     JACKSONs from Co. Wicklow who ended up at Lanark Co., Ontario, Canada. Starts with a John JACKSON born abt 1760.

6.     Joseph JACKSON, Castle Street Carlow, born abt 1800. NOTE: A William JACKSON held land on Burren Street, Town of Carlow in 1801. SEE: ROD: 537-544-354371. Added: March 3, 2017

7.     Edward JACKSON b 1797 and wife Rachel.

8.     Alexander JACKSON of Brown’s Hill, prob born abt 1800-1810.

9.     Edward JACKSON father of Thomas & Hannah

10.  Joseph JACKSON born mid-1700s.. Hacketstown & Wicklow connections.

Since the oral history of the JACKSONs of Urker, Parish of Creggan, Co. Armagh is that the family was granted lands in Co. Carlow, I wanted to check out records that might help us to verify or disprove this. Now that DNA is complementing the paper trails that are possible through other means, this work may also be helpful to other lines of JACKSONs. In light of this, if your family ties into any of these lines, then it would be helpful to let me know so I can add to the shared memory bank.
NOTE
: I suspect that other information relating to Carlow JACKSONs will emerge as I work on the Dublin JACKSON clues. Updated: July 8, 2010

Jacksons of Ballygibbon, Co. Kildare There are several family branches of Jacksons of Ballygibbon, Co. Kildare that will likely interconnect when more is known. None of them are extensive enough to really be called trees - branches is more like it. Shrubs, perhaps.

  • William JACKSON b 1848.
  • James Daniel JACKSON b 1841
  • William JACKSON died aft 1841

The three people above, who I had found through deeds work, are now clicked into place as descendants of a Daniel JACKSON (1726-1815) – thanks to the research of Daphne McCann. This Daniel JACKSON died at Carbury, Co. Kildare. More deeds work may unearth more about him. One question I have is what ever happened to the Daniel JACKSON (1644-?) of Whittington? Did he go to Ireland like so many of his brothers? Did he have descendants?  NOTE: Ballygibbon is close to the parishes of Ardkill and Tomahoe, where there were JACKSONs in the early 1700s. A link is likely. It is also about 8 miles from Drehid, Co. Kildare where one line of the Quaker JACKSONs lived. Updated: March 18, 2017

Jacksons of Clounagh, Parish of Drumcree, Co. Armagh and later of Lisburn. This family starts with a couple of Ralph JACKSONs in Co. Armagh, then a Roger JACKSON who seems to have started at Clounagh, but then set up house in grand style in Lisburn, Co. Antrim. It is worth keeping our eyes open to see if the Michael JACKSON, a clothier of Pimlico in Dublin is related to this family.

JACKSONs in PRONI T619. T619 was deposited at PRONI in 1933, and was a Pedigree of the Jackson family of Tartarghan, Co. Armagh, 1681-1933. It is allegedly the family tree of Thomas John "Stonewall JACKSON" (and is the least likely of the trees that I have posted so far that allege such a connection).This tree is based on that 1933 material shared with PRONI from Eric JACKSON, and I did the tree in 2011. I have not updated it nor have I entered sources. I definitely cannot vouch for its accuracy. Uploaded November 22, 2107

Kings

 

JACKSONs of Kings Co. - Seirkeiran. This is my first crack at this particular line of JACKSONs. They are not the only ones who show up in Kings Co., but they may be related to other lines in the Country. If anyone can help couple some of these together, I would be more than grateful. Updated: February 21, 2017. NOTE: An interesting development is the discovery of a convergence of the descendants of Robert JACKSON mentioned in these documents with the Rev. Robert JACKSON related to the JACKSONs of Kirkby Lonsdale. A Robert JACKSON held land at Castletownmoor, Co. Meath at about the same time. It is possible that Mr Robert JACKSON of Grange was a relation of Rev. Robert JACKSON of Tatham, but more research is needed. Update 2017 - I have since come to doubt this, but have added a great story to the tree as compensation.

JACKSONs of Enniscoe and Carramore, Co. Mayo originated in Sneyd Park, -probably in Kent, England. The first Irish connection is Oliver JACKSON (1605) whose son Francis JACKSON died in 1678 at Enniscoe, Co. Mayo. I suspect that in time, we will also find that this tree is connected to a Miles JACKSON of Co. Mayo (found there as early as 1655). Updated: August 1, 2010

JACKSONs of Co. Down who first settled in Dundonald This tree starts with a John JACKSON of Lancashire and his son Robert JACKSON who may have been born 1619-1624 in Ecclestone, Lancashire, England. He was supposedly a brother of two influential Irish Quakers: Richard & Anthony. My interest in the JACKSONs of Co. Down is to determine their connection in the late 1600s and early 1700s to the JACKSON families of Co. Meath, Ballybay, Armagh, and Londonderry. This tree also includes the known ancestry of President Andrew JACKSON.
The trade of tanner that some of the early members of this family are engaged in is of interest to me since there are JACKSONs in the same time frame in Drogheda, Athy, Monaghan and Dublin who are also connected to the tanning trades. Updated: November 22, 2017

1791-1883 Down The JACKSONs of Ballygrainey, Co. Down is a work in progress. I suspect they will click into the JACKSONs of Dundonald, Co. Down when I learn a bit more about them. For now, this is as far as I can get today. Uploaded November 23, 2017.

I have recently separated this outline tree from a document that includes all the sources. Together on one page, they had become too large for many people to easily load and view.

There is more than one line of JACKSONs that starts in the late 1600s in Ballyboy, Kings. Co.

In the Glanbeg tree, it is a Thomas JACKSON and in the Ahanesk tree, it is a George JACKSON. Whether this is a coincidence, or an error in the secondary sources that I used (ie. Burkes), or whether there is a relationship here still to be discovered, I do not as yet know.

JACKSONs of Knockbreda – Co. Down. This tree begins with a James JACKSON born in the late 1700s. The early roots of this line – presuming there are earlier roots to be found in Co. Down – are likely connected to the James JACKSON of Ballymiscaw, Parish of Dundonald in the JACKSONs of Co. Down. 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 names and dates are all based on evidence prepared for Oinri Jackson. Sources are available on request. Updated: December 15, 2015

Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff - Descendants. This tree starts with a Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff, Dublin who died in 1711. The JACKSONs who were tanners in the late 1600s, are likely related to JACKSONs of Athy, Co. Kildare, and are also likely to be Quakers, or at very least, closely aligned with them through either marriages or business enterprises. See Also: Descendants of Nathaniel HONE - Detailed Tree. The HONE family and the JACKSONs of Crooked Staff had a number of business ties, and at least one marriage. SEE (for an earlier version): Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff - Descendants and an Outline Tree. Update: August 24, 2016.

Michael JACKSON, Clothier of Pimlico. It is important to be wary of some of the links in this tree. They depend on hunches. I began with the parish registers of St. Catherine’s Dublin, and then interpolated information from deeds, and maps to look at other likely relationships. At present, I do not know where these JACKSONs came from, but links in Lisburn and Coleraine are potential places which have me curious. As to where these JACKSONs went, since they do not seem to have stayed in Dublin after a few generations, one likely place would be to look at Michael JACKSON (1740-1803) in Graigue, Queens Co, whose son Adam (1784-1858) and daughter Frances JACKSON (1791-1851) are strong contenders to be descendants.

Jackson Family - Five Generations I am retaining this tree for archival value even though it has been totally superseded. It starts with George JACKSON (1718-1782) of Liscalgot & Urker, Parish of Creggan, Co. Armagh in the early 1700s, is 16 pages long and has 267 footnotes. It was prepared by Wendy Jack of Australia, and I remain grateful for the years of work she put into this. The names of living persons are excluded. It is also in an outline version: Jackson, George & Margaret O'Laughlan, 1700s  Hyperlinks link back to biographies on the various family members for whom they have been prepared. NOTE: There have been significant additions since this page was prepared, although it is still worth a gander for easy access to links to biographies and such. Otherwise, the rootsweb version is much more reliable.
