Note on Husband: George JACKSON

Robert Darlington writes that, based on information from the Diary of Mary HOWARD, George ran away to sea when he was 14 years old. As the youngest in the family and living not too far away from a seaport, that is probably exactly what happened. Ships at that time frequently sailed to China and India where they traded in many goods including tea and porcelain. So it is not surprising that George was next found in India.

He must have been an enterprising sailor to have become a Master (Captain). the Diary shows him with the intiials H.E.I.C. which stands for Honorable East India Company. When Robert and his wife Wendy visited the Jackson home in North Reston in the early 1990s they spoke to the then owner of George Jackson's original estate.He was a busy farmer in the midst of harvest so they did not get to see the inside of the house or discuss the ownership with him. But his one remark after they had identified their connection with George Jackson was to say words to the effect that "Oh yes, didn't he make his money trading in opium or slaves".

David Morris notes that he was referred to as "A Captain in the Country Service" which he has found reference to as the boss of a Trading Post managed for the East India Company. A reference www.barnettmaritime.co.uk/mainheic.htm gives some historical information on the H.E.I.C..

From the records in FMP India section BMD's and in the diary it appears that George had two illegitimate sons before he married Mary on the 1st October 1796. We can follow the fact that the first son George was registered as born 9 Dec 1795 and died 5 Feb 1798. The Diary and the Bmd's differ in respect of the second son - James Lewis JACKSON. The diary says born September 1799 but registration gives the birth as 29 Dec 1799. The Diary states that "James Lewis JACKSON left us 22nd May 1814" but then goes on to say that "James JACKSON died the 17th April 1825 on a Sunday". FMP provides the answer with a copy of the will of James Lewis JACKSON dated 1825. He had obviously visited his "Mother" in 1814.

As Robert states, had all this happened in England it is doubtful that the mores of the gentry would have permitted Mary Howard to marry George Jackson as she was obviously well connected in Calcutta society.

Note on Wife: Mary HOWARD

As Robert Darlington writes in his history of Jackson of Lincolnshire and India that Mary wrote a diary which provided many of the names, dates of births, deaths and mariages of her family and relatives. Mary married George Jackson in 1896 when she was not quite 16 years old. Her diary survived her life in India and her return to England. David MORRIS a cousin of Wendy - Robert's wife inherited the diary and much of the documentation from his Mother on her death in 1992. He shared that with Robert and another descendant - Nikki Vine of Somerset.
