Note: Francis' name is found on a 1731 deed as having land adjoining John Farrow. Assuming Francis was AT LEAST 21 by 1731, his estimated birth year is before 1710.

Francis (107), the original owner of 227 acres is deceased by 1723 and his son Francis (105) is wanting a deed in his own name to the original 227 acres plus the surplus 113 acres. NOTE: "deed to his father". (The original 1712 deed was to Francis Jackson (107) thus proving the relationship between the two Francis Jacksons.)

1745 July 15 340A Thomas Lord Fairfax to Francis Jackson 340 acres including 227 acres by deed to his father dated 4 Apr 1712 plus 113 acres surplus land adjacent John Bennet, Jackson, Philemon Waters, Hedges. Northern Neck Grants F, 1742-1754, p 227-228

1731 Aug 27 C-10 John Farrow of PWC had 724 acres on the branches of Quantico adjoining the lands of Robert Hedges, Francis Jackson & Samuel Jackson. See 1708 3-191.

This is the first deed showing Francis and Samuel with adjoining land but see that Samuel's land 450A did adj Hedges.

1739 May 30 VA Northern Neck Grants E, p. 85. Survey by John Warner: Area: 400 acres in PWC, VA, on the branches of Quantico, adjoining Philemon Waters and Francis Jackson.

1741 Jan 16 VA Northern Neck Grants E, p. 402. Thomas Harrison of PWC, Gent. 221 A in PWC on Quantico Run adj Robert Hedges, Francis Jackson, Philemon Waters, Samuel Jackson's now Harrison's land. serv. by Capt. Joseph Berry. (Dettigen Parish)

1742 Jul 10 VA Northern Neck Grants E, p. 462. John Bennit of PWC 590 A in PWC on Beaver Dam Fork of Goose Creek; adj John Bennit, Swan Jones dec'd, Francis Jackson, John Farrow dec'd., Run of Chapawamsick, S. Run of Quantico. Serv by John Warner. (Dettingen Parish)

1742 Nov 29 VA Northern Neck Grants F, p. 22. Philemon Waters Jr., of Prince William County, survey by George Byrn. Area: 178 acres, on the Stoney Branch of Chappawamsick, and other branches of Chappawamsick and Quantico, adjoining Cuthbert Harrison, John McMillan, James Calk, Francis Jackson, and Swan Jones. This and the above two deeds are said to be from "Title: Records of Dettingen Parish, Prince William County, Virginia, 1745-1802"

1742 Nov 24 Northern Neck Land Grants F, pg 24 Philemon Waters Jr., of Prince William County "inform'd that there were about 200 acres of Surplus land within the Bounds of a certain tract given him by his Father Philemon Waters the Elder, And having obtain'd a warrant to survey the same whereby there was found 274 acres of Surplus Land which the said Philemon Waters the Younger desiring to have included with his other said tract in one Deed". Survey by George Byrn. Area: 396 acres PWC on the south run of Quantico, adjoining Samuel (108) and/or Francis Jackson, and John Overhall.

1766 Oct 6

Prince William County, VA - Deed Book Q, 1763-1768, pages 394-395. Indenture? for 20 pounds current money of Virginia said Francis Jackson hath sold unto Foushee Tebbs and his heirs all that parcel of land containing 200 acres in County of Prince William being part of a Patent for 6,710 acres lying upon Quantiquot Creek and Powells Run in County of Prince William? In witness whereof Francis Jackson hath set his hand and Seal in presence of Thomas Lawson, William Carr and Wm. Tebbs Signed Francis Jackson.

1788, 18 Feb: Indenture, Willoughby TEBBS and Samuel TEBBS of the town of Dumfries, Prince William Co., VA, surviving executors of Foushee TEBBS...................... which 200 acres of land hereby intended to be sold by an Indenture of Feoffment 25 Sep 1694 was conveyed by said Andrew GIBSON to Samuel JACKSON & either by devise or descent the same devolved upon Francis JACKSON the grandson of said Samuel which said Francis JACKSON made a conveyance thereof to sell to Foushee TEBBS by deeds of lease & release 6 Oct 1766.

1778 Francis Jackson makes a deed to 'my son Samuel. . . 240 acres of land in County of Prince William on a branch of Occoquan River called the Cabin Branch' . . . and follows is the legal description of the land which includes all houses, buildings and tenements and says that Samuel is currently living on the land. Francis' wife Sarah was examined privetly and consented to the deed. Sarah signed or made her mark as Sarah C. Jackson.

Will of Francis Jackson, Prince William County, dated 10 December, 1781; probated 7 January, 1782.

To grandson Billy Jackson, son and heir to my son Charles Jackson, decd.;

my son Samuel Jackson;

my son Francis Jackson;

my daughter Ann Jackson;

my daughter Janney Fielder and her husband William Fielder;

my three daughters, Susannah, Constant and Elizabeth;

to Jane Marlow;

to daughter Susannah Jackson when she arrives at 18 years;

to daughter Constant Jackson when she arrives at the same;

to daughter Ann Jackson when she arrives at the same;

to daughter Elizabeth Jackson when she arrives at the same.

Executors, son Samuel Jackson and son-in-law William Fielder. Witnesses: John Thorn, Thomas Smith and Nathaniel Russell. Book G, Page 142.

(Some have said Janney's name was Jenny, but I've checked a copy of the actual will. Her name there is Janney.)

1782 Jan 7 DB 2, 1753-1786, pg 149; also Turner's Bond Book pg 220. Francis Jackson (RIN 105) is dec'd; Bonded Samuel Jr (RIN 77) & Wm Fielder (RIN 117) Executors, Stephen Howison and John McMillion join in bond.

The following pertains to Francis, son of Francis and his second wife, Sarah Ridley:

A 1799 Deed Recorded DB Z: pgs 538 & 539, Prince William Circuit Court Archives from Francis Jackson, son of Frances and Sarah Ridley, has the following proving paragraph. Francis is selling property to Margaret Evins (Evans) and Stafford Mathews which he inherited through his mother:

"being part of tract of land granted to William Ridley by the Proprietor of the Northern Neck and bequeathed by said Ridley in the year 1751 to his two daughters and their heirs Elizabeth and Sarah Ridley who intermarried with Charles Cornwell and Frances Jackson, that is to say Elizabeth to Cornwell and Sarah to Jackson which said land was divided between said Cornwell and Jackson at their request by the County Surveyor in the year 1770; the said Francis Jackson and Sarah his wife being both dead, their said parts now lawfully belonging to their son, Francis Jackson . . ."

Now, IT IS A STUDIED CONJECTURE THAT SAMUEL JACKSON IS THE SON OF FRANCIS JACKSON SR. and brother to Francis Jackson the second. The Y-DNA of descendants of both men indicate a close family relationship such that they could be brothers..

Note from Jack McAnally: "Descendants of both Samuel and Francis all match the Hempstead DNA sufficiently such that Samuel Sr. 1134 and Francis 107 could be brothers. Your studied conjecture will fit within the possibilities of the Y-DNA information, but the Y-DNA info does not in any way help prove the conjecture other than these early Jackson were all related in some way. You have picked one of the possible ways. We don't have enough Y-DNA information to refute or prove the conjecture just enough to say it is possible."

Both Samuel and Francis were in the same locality. No record has been found of Samuel owning any land. He left no land to descendants in his will. This may be consistent with his older brother (Francis) inheriting their father's land.

Making and repairing saddles and harnesses could provide success and status for the right fellow. Alexander Craig, one of the most successful craftsmen in the history of Williamsburg, was such a man.
