Long Island Genealogies
Mary Powell Bunker
Pub: Joel Munsell's Sons, Albany, NY 1895


This is my summary of the Jackson Chapter, Pages 220 - 226 of the above book.

[I found this record to be the most accurate. But as in lot of old genealogy records it was sometimes circular and difficult to follow. Therefore, I have noted the page number for each element. Mrs. Bunker's use of generation numbers by each name was most helpful. You can read and print out the actual document from the Cornell University Library, the Making of America. I hope you will find this summary helpful as you compare this work to other early records.  The order of the children has been changed just for ease of reading and [my comments are in brackets].

pg 220: Richard Jackson had deed of land in Southhold as early as 1640 but sold it soon. One record says Richard remained in Massachusetts. He married a second time to the widow of Richard Brown. He died in 1672 at age 90 years.

pg 338: Richard Gildersleeve was one of the number who came from Stamford, to Hempstead, in 1644. Some of the others were Rev. Richard Denton, Jonas Wood, Capt. John Underhill, Robert Jackson, John Karman, John Ogden, Matthew Mitchell, Robert Fordham, Robert Coe, Andrew Ward, William and Thurston Raynor, Thomas Armitage, William Mead, Symon Searing and Thomas Weeks.

pg 338: When Gov. Dongan issued a patent for the town of Hempstead, in 1722, John Jackson, (son of Robert and Agnes) was the only surviving patentee of the first patent under Gov. William Kieft, in 1644. 

pg 338: Robert Jackson's Will dated 1683 says wife Agnes, was a dau of William & Jane Washburn.
                    [But see Harry Macy's article in "Conflicting Data" section of this site.]
