Genealogy of the Jackson and Associated Families

 

Generation 1

Ralph Jackson and Leah Williams

 

     Ralph Jackson (~1650/6 January 1650 - ~27 October 1708/1 Feb. 1709) is the oldest traceable individual in this Jackson lineage. Several researchers have suggested either William Jackson (~1624 - ?) or Patrick Jackson (? - ?) as possible candidates for Ralph's father, both, of whom, are believed to have been born in England. Patrick Jackson is known to have been in the Virginia colony at least by March of 1647, and lived in Charles City County at least until 1663. Unfortunately, there is no primary source material to support any of these paternal identifications. Several individuals named Ralph Jackson lived in the vicinity of the Jamestown colony in the mid to late 1600's, so there is some confusion on precise identifications. Since one of the Ralphs moved to the Meherrin River in what later became Brunswick County at an early date, and the other lived either in the Henrico County and Prince George County area, the two lineages can be easily differentiated when these county and stream locations are identified.1,2,3,4,5,9,12,15,17,19,21,25

 

    Neither the birth date nor the place of Ralph Jackson have been established through primary source records, but secondary sources indicate that the event occurred in Aberford, York County/Yorkshire, England in or around 1650. That he married a woman named Leah (~1654 - 1711/~1741) can be established from primary sources, but there is some disagreement on her maiden name. One group of researchers suspect that her name was Neale, and that her father was Thomas Neale. On the other hand, others suggest that her name was Leah Williams and that she was a daughter of William Williams. Virginia court records suggest that Williams may be correct, since his will bequeathed land to his two daughters, one of which was Leah Pattison, wife of John Pattison. The connection of Leah Jackson to Leah Pattison can be made through an analysis of land records. In John Pattison's will, he bequeathed land on Swift Creek to his step sons, Ralph and Joseph Jackson. Since this land was originally bequeathed to Ralph Jackson's underage sons in his 1709 will, the trail of land and wills indirectly confirms that Leah (Williams) Jackson married John Pattison after the death of Ralph Jackson. The date and place of her marriage to Ralph Jackson is not known with certainty, although some researchers suggest that it occurred in 1768 in Henrico County, Virginia. One of Ralph's sons, William/Williams Jackson, has been interpreted as having been born in England in 1688, which would place the marriage in that country sometime prior to that date, but no supporting primary source documentation is available for that imterpretation. Other researchers, however, postulate a later birth date for Williams, which would suggest that the marriage could have taken place in the American colonies. Leah's birth date and place are not known with certainty, and while some researchers indicate that she was born in Aberford, York, England, others indicate that she was born in Charles City County Virginia. 1,2,3,4,5,6,9,10,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,25

 

    Ralph Jackson passed away either in Dale Parish, Henrico County, Virginia or Charles City County, Virginia sometime between 27 Oct. 1708 (when his will was written) and 1 Feb. 1709, (when it was proved in court). Leah then remarried, and survived her second husband, who passed away around 1741. She is believed to have passed away either in Henrico County or Chesterfield County, Virginia, although the date of her death is not known.1,2,3,4,5,15,19,25
