John Jackson (2nd) (1809 – 1850) was born about 1809 in St Bury Edmond in Suffolk England and was then transported to Australia in 1833 as a convict aboard the ship “Captain Cook (2)”. John was convicted on the 15th of October 1832, at Cambridge Town London for stealing a watch.

I discovered a reference to John Jackson and Mary Anne Hunt in the NSW Australian Registers of Convicts Applications to Marry 1826 – 1852. John and Mary Anne’s petition to the court for permission to marry was granted and they were legally wed on the 27th of January 1842. They would have seven children and John Jackson would die on the 25th of October 1850 in Montfiores in Wellington NSW. In an unexpected event in 1824 John’s remains would be exhumed and later re-buried in a newly created cemetery across the road from his original resting place. This was due to the need for the road to be re-aligned and this would see the road partly take a path through the old cemetery.

The eldest living child of John Jackson (2nd) and Mary Anne Hunt was John Jackson (3rd) (1842 – 1918) born on the 16th of November 1842. There was an earlier child, also named “John” who has no birth or death records that I could discover. John was followed by Samuel (1845 – 1909), Anne (1845 – 1869), Joseph (1847 – 1934, Margaret (1847) and Frederick William (1850 – 1921).
