Looking for Jacksons in Armagh
« on: Sunday 15 May 05 19:50 BST (UK) »
Desperately looking for any information on a James Jackson (my g.grandfather)of Armagh...b.1827.

He emigrated to Canada between 1827 & 1864 & settled in Ontario.

Thanks, in advance, for any information.
Jackson, Jamieson

Hello Fufuss,

A belated welcome to RootsChat.

What denomination were the Jackson family? Civil registration in Ireland commenced in 1864 so it will be a case of searching for details of your ancestor in Church records.

Thank you for the welcome.

My Jackson family were Presbyterian...I see from the Canadian1881 census.

I am told that my g.grandfather's middle name was Slater
(if that could help in any way).

Thanks for any help you could give me...this family has me stuck!

Regards, Karen
Jackson, Jamieson

Armagh is both a city and a county so you need to narrow down the area in Ireland before you will be able to find church records.
Have you traced the family through Canadian Census records, deaths certificates, gravestones, newspaper obituaries, etc. in case there's a mention of a place in Ireland besides 'Armagh'?

P.S. forgot to say welcome.

Hello Fufuss - saw your query and wondered if you had discovered info about your g.grandfather James Jackson. I am trying to find information about my g.grandfather Robert Jackson, born in Ireland about 1822. Emigrated to Canada (Ontario)about 1840. Family lore suggests that he may have travelled with a brother (name unknown). Do you have any info about your g.grandfather's family such as names of parents or siblings? Any possibility of a family connection here - if so would appreciate hearing from you
Regards
Jack

Hello Keesa- yes, I have discovered some info about my g.grandfather James Jackson.--His parents were David Jackson b.1808 ...his mother was Mary(Molly) Haggerty        b.abt. 1793...both born in Ireland.David emigrated to Ontario in1834.

I  have found that he had a sibling, Hugh, b.1834 in Ireland
...& there's a possibility that he also had a brother Henry,b.1836 in Ireland.---Now,the only Robert that I have found is a son of Hugh's, b.abt 1861 in Ontario.

I don't know if this is any help to you.-I don't see a family connection...but still could  be, as I'm sure there were lots of siblings that I am missing as of yet. these Jacksons lived in Dundas County (kind of southeast of Ottawa)

-These Jacksons seem very elusive!-If I can be of any help, just let me know.

Regards, Fufuss
Jackson, Jamieson

Hi there,

Do you have James S. Jackson's death in 1912?  They have his place of birth listed as County Derry, Ireland.

Who all came to Canada in a little row boat, clap clap, clap your hands!!

Since civil registration in Ireland started too late to trace this family and you need more information than 'Co. Derry' to find them in Ireland you need to go through all Canadian sources to look for further clues.
Any place of birth in Ireland mentioned on gravestones, newspaper obituaries or local histories?
