Thank you Garstonite.
Not even sure if he comes from Rivington (near Bolton) although I think his wife does. The records don't give much info at all. I have been in touch with Bolton Library and hope they come up with something.
I have been looking at the Lancashire Online Parish Clerk Project & the marriage is recorded on there.
However,I don't know if it is an error Richard is recorded under the name of Jacobson not Jackson.
The marriage took place at the Parish Church of Rivington on 24th Jan 1748/9.
The parish records of 1706-1754 page 6 entry 5.
Rivington is a district of Bolton & is part of the West Pennines.Lord Leverhulme had a large estate there & it is a well known area of Lancashire,with Rivington Pike at the top of Winter Hill.The Pike is a very well known landmark.
