Jackson Family
« on: Sunday 04 February 18 13:45 GMT (UK) »
I am hoping to trace the following family in Ireland  who appear in 1871 UK census in Everton Lancs

John Jackson a 50 born Ireland Occ Town Missionary
Rachel Jackson (Kean) a 50 born Ireland wife
John w Jackson a 23 born ireland son
Sarah Jackson a 19 born Ireland daughter
Rachel Jackson a 15 born Ireland.
Thomas M Jackson a 3 born Liverpool emigrated to NZ & married there (dont have ship record so dont know if all Jackson family emigrated.
Thank you  I now know from the 1891 UK census that the Jackson family originated in Co Down from a reply I had to my post on NZ board. Should this topic be moved to Co Down board?

Did some of this Jackson family move on to Manchester?

I'm looking at Jackson's in Manchester, but very common Christian names unfortunately.

In the 1891 Census, I believe Rachel is a widow and living with her married daughter, Sarah Cotton, born Co. Down, Ireland (husband Richard) in Liverpool.  Rachel says she's 72, living on her own means, and was born in Co. Down, Ireland.  Also in the household is brother-in-law (to Richard) named John, aged 40, also born in Co. Down.

Found them in 1881 as well with Rachel (spelled Rachael) as a widow.  John Jr. is a ship steward, Sarah is unmarried and a dressmaker, Robert a general labourer, and Thomas a scholar.  Rachel, Sarah and John all born in Ireland.

They are in Liverpool by the 1861 Census.  There is another child Mary who is aged 1 and born in Liverpool who must have passed before the 1871 census.  John is noted as a town missionary in this census as well.

Children baptised at St. Peter's Church of England in Liverpool:  Robert Henry b. 6 July 1864; George Pennell b. 2 June 1861; and Mary Jane b. 26 July 1859.

Many thanks for looking eileenwilson, - much appreciated.

Perhaps another branch of this family moved on to Manchester...?

Have accounted for most of the children.  John remains with his mother, Sarah marries twice, Thomas goes to NZ.  That leaves Rachel Jr. and Robert. Several children died young.

Yes, - many thanks eileen,

I'm entering them all in a Tree chart...

What I'm trying to find is a John Jackson in Manchester, who had a son Roy Jackson in Manchester in the 1920's. I know that there has to be some Kean involvement somewhere down the line, - and that's why I was trying to follow Rachel.
