John Jackson

1807 - 1842

Father George Jackson
Mother Jane Hall
Wife Sarah Bocking
Children Ann, George, Elizabeth


John was born in Chapel en le Frith on August 17th 1807 (1), the first child of George and Jane. Soon after his birth the family moved to Little Hucklow (2), where his mother originally came from (3). A brother George followed in 1809 (2), but he only lived for a few months (4). A sister Martha was born in 1812 (5), and then another brother Edward in 1814 (6), but he died the following year (7), Another brother, William, was born in 1816 (8). His youngest sister Hannah followed in 1821 (9), and finally his youngest brother Thomas in 1823 (10). His sister Hannah died in 1829 (11).

John married Sarah Bocking of Abney in 1830 (12), and they had their first child, Ann, a few months later (13). Their son George followed in 1832 (14), and their other daughter, Elizabeth was born in 1834 (15).

John's father died in 1835 (16), then his wife, aged just 29, in 1840 (17)(18), leaving John to raise their children alone (19). John also died young, of dropsy, aged just 35, on 9th December 1842 (20). He was buried two days later in Hope (21).

    [August 1807] John son of George & Jane Jackson of this Town born 17th Aug. baptd the 26th Day.
  2. Parish Register of St John the Baptist's, Tideswell includes the entry:
    [1809, Baptisms] Novr 12 George son of George & Jane Jackson of Little Hucklow
  3. See his mother's page for details.

  5. Parish Register of St John the Baptist's, Tideswell includes the entry:
    [1812, Baptisms] Augt 12 Martha, Daugr of George & Jane Jackson of Little Hucklow
    Martha was apparently baptised twice, because the Parish Register of St Peter's, Hope also includes the entry:
    [Christenings, September 1812] Martha Daur of George & Jane Jackson of Little Hucklow   14

    I believe there to be an error in the register. His age should have been entered as '1', but an erroneous zero has made it into '10'.

    Note: The death appears to have been registered 14 months after it happened. The registrar at Bakewell assures me the death is definitely recorded as 1840, and the registration definitely took place as 1842. She said that she imagined the death must have really been 1841, but this cannot be the case as the burial was in 1840 (18). There must have been some reason for the excessive delay in registering the death, but we're unlikely to find out what it was.
