Hello to all Jackson researchers ...I've recently begun my research on family history and have been able to get back to my great grandfather Frank Edward Jackson, born 1845, in County Mayo, Ireland. His father was James Jackson , but I have no other info on him or his ancestry. Frank Edward married a woman by the name of Margaret Theresa Grady, born in Yorkshire, England in 1851, in January of 1870, at a church by the name of St. Patrick's, in Yorkshire. They came to America in 1873, eventually settling in Avoca, Pa........would love to get some info, for both sides, on their past. Anything that can be shared would help. Thanks.

My maiden name is Jackson. My father was an immigrant from Poland (Galicia) that part under Austro-Hungarian rule. He emigrated with the name Jaksan, a very un-Polish name. Someone doing research for me in Poland has said that Scots by the name of Jackson came to southern Poland in the 1600s. These Scottish and English colonists were heavily taxed by the Polish King and eventually called heretics. Most converted to roman Catholicism. Can anyone veryify this information? I would never have thought my Polish relatives would have had their origin in Scotland. Would appreciate your response.
The Jackson name originated from the English Scottish borders.they were seated.people of wealth and landowners.strongly linked to the crusaders who fought for the holy land.my grandfather was a vicar as was his father his father etc.I know the strong religious aspect running through the family and with the family staying in northumberland I'm glad to say I'm the real deal.I have also Scottish and Irish relatives which all links up to the info concerning Jackson
This article has an error. The 7th president of the U.S. was Andrew (Old Hickory) Jackson. NOT "Stonewall". Stonewall Jackson was the Confederate General Thomas Jonathan Jackson.
My maternal grandmother was Elizabeth Fredrika Theneustina Jackson & married my maternal grandfather in Saint Pauls Church in Port Elizabeth on the 27th August 1890,. I find her 3rd christian name very unusual, Iwould be interested to see if there are any other people who have a relative with the same "Theneustina". (taken from a copy of the church register.)
My name is Johnny Jackson I did some research, it seems that my ancestor (Elder William Jackson) from northern ireland in 1721. My GGG grandfather was born on the mayflower and settled in North Carolina or Virginia? and spread from there. I cannot get any info for Elder William Jackson? can someone help?
How do I find where my Jackson name came from in Columbia SC.

go to your main library in your county and do your search for your Jackson info. My Jackson roots are very deep in W.Va .
Name - occurring laterally - as Jaksan , Jakson , Jakson comes from the name of the male is already known in the Middle Ages, " Jaksa " ( dawn.Jaxa , Jaxo , Jacza , Jaczo , Jazko ) , some researchers argue that it comes from a personal name John . Others advocate the view that we are dealing here with a shortened version of the name James . It is difficult to prove that the root of the "how" is derived from this name , because there is a Slavic word " like" s , meaning a man brave , strong . Both from the name of Jacob, and apelatywu "how" could therefore arise word form , or name Jaksa . The suffix " - sa" ( derived from " -st " ) occurs in Polish extremely rare ( eg Borsh , Radsza , Bogusz , Nietyksza ) . Still others believe that the name Jaksa is probably polonized form of the name Jason . Name Jaksa , now completely forgotten , was in use even in the sixteenth century.
Data from the "Dictionary of the names used today in Poland, " edited by Prof. . Casimir Rymut , issued by the Institute of Polish Academy of Sciences show that the etymology " jaks " comes a lot of names : Jaksa, Jaksik, Jaksonek, Jaksan, Jakson, Jaksoń.

Alan Norman Jackson
In fact I go by my middle name --Norman- I travelled from Western Australia to England on May 28, this year (2015) to ascertain if my father is alive or not.mhis name was/is George Alan Jackson and he was a soldier in WW2. Stationed in Mauritius during the conflict he met my mother, a local lass and they were married in Mauritius on 31/10/1942. I was born on 29/7/1943. My mother and I travelled to Port Mulgrave when I was 3 years old and we stayed with my grandparents in Port Mulgrave. My father came back from the war with a hearing disability and my younger brother, Denis, was born on 12/3/1947. Unfortunately the marriage broke down and the 3 of us travelled back to live in Mauritius. They divorced in the early 1960's and he remarried a lady by the the name of Patricia Harrison in 1962. I have endeavoured to find out if he is still alive or not but unfortunately to no avail. I am positive that I may have some other relatives in the UK but need assistance from anyone who may be able to provide me with other details pertaining to my father. He was born in 1918. When in 1918 remains a question. I can be contacted at email@example.com. I will be most grateful for any information.
