As I said, with names like that it should be fairly easy….shouldn’t it?
Well, to some degree it is fairly easy, as there is a peerage involved much of the details is freely available. Having started to look into the wider family, my initial thoughts were what a muddle!
I really should not spend too long on this branch of the family as they are not a direct line, but I hate lines that stop and do not provide further information. So, I persisted and realised that again the family ties are strongly entangled with India.
I firstly had a look at Anna Madeline Hungerford who was born 1838. She married Elphinstone Jackson in 1859. My initial thoughts here were, a cousin, I might have known! I was right. He husband was the son of Welby Brown Jackson who was in turn the brother of Anna’s father.
Together, Anna and Elphinstone Jackson had 6 children, which appears to be a popular number of issue with this side of the family!
Given that Anna and Elphinstone share the same Grandparents I wondered just how the issue with the peerage started, especially as Anna’s father was the first Baronet.
More of that tomorrow!
