11993. Jackson


  1. Edmund Jackson (ca. 1590–1638) m. (1) 1615 Bridget Story (1592–1631); Boston, Lincs., Eng.
  2. Mary Jackson (1618–bef. 1665) m. bef. 1639 Nathaniel Woodward (1608?–bef. 1695); Boston, Mass.


The identity of Mary Jackson is established by the will of Samuel Jackson of Boston, Lincolnshire, England, which was dated 7 August 1642 and proved 21 November 1646. An abstract appears in Henry F. Waters, Genealogical Gleanings in England: Abstracts of Wills Relating to Early American Families, with Genealogical Notes and Pedigrees Constructed from the Wills and Other Documents, 2 vols. (1907; reprint, Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1981), 2:1015, and a full transcript in John Anderson Brayton, From One Boston to Another: Notes on the Ancestry of Mary (Jackson) Woodward, New England Historical and Genealogical Register 158 (2004): 213-27, at 214. The relatively modest subtitle of Brayton’s work belies its standing as the most complete account of Mary’s ancestry to date.
