About Elizabeth Jackson

  • Elizabeth Scott? Chaplin Jackson
  • Birth: unknown, England
  • Death: Jun. 12, 1694 Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA
  • Elizabeth married Hugh Chaplin before they came to the new world. They sailed on the ship, John of London from Hull England in the summer of 1638 and landed in Salem Harbor, spending the winter there. They were granted 1 1/2 acres of land for a house lot in the new settlement of Rowley, where they were two of the original settlers. "To Hugh Chaplin, one lotte containginge an acre; and halfe, bounded on the south side by John Dresser's house lott, part of it lyinge on the west side, and part of it on the ease side of the street." He also recieved 1 1/2 gates (the amount and ox could till) for a planting lot, use of the common lands for their stock, salt marsh, meadow and uplands, outside of the village.
  • It is thought that Hugh built a primitive shelter on his house lot, and later bought John Dressers dwelling and moved his family there. Joseph, his son built the house that is still standing on his father's original land.
  • Hugh and Elizabeth had 4 sons; John, Joseph, Thomas and Jonathan. Three of them died within a year of each other and did not reach adulthood. Hugh was buried Jan. 22, 1653 All four boys are mentioned in his will.
  • Around 1657 Elizabeth married Nicholas Jackson, of Rowley.
  • Elizabeth neglected to file Hugh's will and inventory within the 20 month period to the court, so she was fined. It was presented to the Ipswich Court and proved March 31, 1657 with witnesses Joseph Jewett and John Pickard and the inventory sworn to July 29, 1657 by Elizabeth Jackson formerly wife of Hugh Chaplin.
  • There isn't a record of Elizabeth's interment in the Rowley Cemetery. It was the only parish cemetery at the time of her death. According to the Rowley Town Clerk, it is likely she is here, since, early memorials were made of wood. When these deteriorated, if family members were still in the area, they sometimes replaced them with a stone memorial. Her burial date is listed June 12, 1694 in the Vital Records for Rowley.

Some genealogies have "Elizabeth Scott" as the 2nd wife of Hugh Chaplin, married 1642 in Rowley, and different from the wife Elizabeth who emigrated with him in 1638. However she cannot have been the daughter of

Thomas Scott, of Rattlesden & Ipswich as his known daughter Elizabeth Spofford married in 1647 to John Spofford.

Nicholas Jackson was born in 29 Aug 1613 in Hunsley, East Riding Yorkshire, England. Hunsley was a hamlet three miles N.W. of Rowley. Alternatively, he was born in Huntley, Gloucester, England. His parents were Nicholas JACKSON and Prudence MARCHE. In “The Original Lists of Person of Quality; 1600-1700” there is a Nicholas Jackson, age 22 on the Assurance emigrating from London to America, July 24, 1635. He married Sarah RILEY in 1 May 1646. After Sarah died, he married Elizabeth, widow of Hugh CHAPLIN. Nicholas died 13 Feb 1697 in Rowley, Essex, Mass.

William Boynton, elder son of William and Anne Boynton was born 1605- 06 in Knapton in Wintringham, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. He married Elizabeth Jackson, daughter of William Jackson, 1630 in England. S he was born 1618 in Hunsley, York, England and died in 1687 in Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts. To this union seven children were born: John, Elizabeth, Zachariah, Joshua, Mary, Caleb and Sarah.

In 1637, William along with his brother John, joined the expedition which was fitted out under the auspices of Sir Matthew Boynton and others who made extensive preparations for a settlement in New England. Sir Matthew Boynton remained behind and joined the fortunes of Oliver Cromwell. The remainder of the party embarked at Hull in the Autumn of 1638, and came to the American colonies with Rev. Ezekiel Rogers, arriving in Boston, New England the same year. Many of the families were wealthy, and with the means brought with them purchased a tract of land situated between the towns of Newbury and Ipswich. They took possession of the land in April 1639 and named it Rowley, in honor of their minister, Rev. Ezekiel Rogers. " from http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=aztextor&...
