Chesterfield County, Virginia Tithables, 1762
Ralph Jackson
3 tithables
Syman Jackson
Said to have had five sons, two daughters.
THE JACKSONS OF LOWER VIRGINIA suggests sons Joseph, Joel, Francis, Lewis, possibly Mark.
These articles have identified a Patience married to Ezekiel Sudbury as the possible daughter of Ralph's brother Joseph. This is an erroneous connection - Patience, daughter of Joseph, would not have been old enough to fit the records found, and she is believed to have died unmarried. It is possible this Patience is instead a daughter of either Ralph or Daniel, most likely Ralph since his is older. Both Ralph and Daniel are thought to have had daughters, names unknown. Here are the records of Patience Sudbury, wife of Ezekiel Sudbury:
16 Aug 1746. Mark Jackson, son of Williams, sold 130 acres to Thomas Franklin Jr, part of 490 acres patent to Williams Jackson on 15 Mar 1735 in Henrico County on Licking Creek. Deed was witnessed by Ralph Jackson, John Stewart, John Green, Patience Sudbury, & Martha Jackson
1746 Henrico Co Deed. Ezekiel Sudbury gave a deed of gift to Ezekiel, "son of my wife Patience" Witnesses were Martha Jackson, John Green & Ralph Jackson. [No exact date given, but needs to be examined since Patience, wife of Ezekiel, seemed to be living in August to sign the previous deed. If indeed Patience the wife was already deceased in August, then the deed may have been signed by Patience, daughter of Ezekiel, making the wife even older and perhaps placing her in a previous generation.]
8 Apr 1747. Henrico Co Deed. Ezekiel and wife Anne gave a deed of gift to Ezekiel, his son by his wife Patience, dec'd, and to his daughters Hannah & Patience. Witnesses were Francis Jackson, Thomas Sadler & Stephen Beasley.
Note: There is nothing here to suggest Patience, wife of Ezekiel Sudbury, was a Jackson except the existence of witnesses by that name. She may be someone else entirely.
