William (probably not Miles) Jackson of Combehay, Somerset
m1. Mary Birde (dau of W. Birde of Bristol)
1. William Jackson (b c1590, a 1614)
  We presume that William's wife Elizabeth was not 'dau of Christopher, an (a)pothecary of Stockton' but was (as identified) ...
  m. Elizabeth Pothecary (dau of Christopher Pothecary of Stockton)
  A. Miles Jackson (b c1617)
  Visitation (1672) shows that Miles had a younger brother called William, not mentioned by Visitation (1623), but records that William was aged 2 in 1672, when Miles was about 53 years old. Whilst the age/date may be wrong, provisionally we presume that William was not brother but son (or grandson) of Miles..
  i. William Jackson (b c1670?)
  B.+ other issue - Elizabeth, Mary, Eleanor (b after 1623?)
m2. Eleanor (relict of _ Davison)
Visitation (1623) shows that Mary was mother of William. We do not know which wife was mother of the following.
2. Miles Jackson of Combehay
m. Mary Davis of Somerset
  A. William Jackson, Sheriff then Mayor of Bristol (b c1635, a 1688)
  m. Elizabeth Perry (dau of Thomas Perry of Kingswood)
  i.+ issue (a 1672) - John (b c1669), William, Elizabeth
  B. Philip Jackson of Pontrilas (Herefordshire) & London possibly of this family, of this generation
  MGH (NS5 vol 4 (1922), 'Bourne Pedigree', p253+) identifies Philip as "son of Miles Jackson of Combe Hay. co. Somerset" and provides the following.
  m. Elizabeth Bourne (dau of John Bourne of Sutton St. Clears)
  i. Edward Jackson of Pontrilas (a 1695)
m. Constance Woodward (dau of Christopher Woodward)

  F. Mary Jackson
  m. Anthony Hort of Westbury

  G. Martha Jackson
3. Joseph Jackson 'of Sneyd Park'
  Visitation (1672) shows Joseph and the other siblings (excepting William & Miles) in italics, indicating that they were added by the Harleian editor. We speculate [because the coats of arms suggest that the Jacksons of Enniscoe (later Carramore) were of the same family as the above-mentioned William, Mayor of Bristol] that this was the Joseph Jackson who is reported (on various web sites) to have bought Sneyd Park (near Bristol) from the Sadlier family in the 1650s.
  A. Joseph Jackson of Sneyd Park father of Catherine, probably of this (or the next) generation
  i. Catherine Jackson
m. John Martin of Overbury Park (b 1692, d 1767)
  BLG1886 & BLGI1912 start with the following Francis Jackson other than to identify him as "described as a younger son of Joseph Jackson, of Sneyd Park".
  B. Francis Jackson (d 1678, Captain, to Ireland with Cromwell's army) probably of this generation
  m. Elizabeth
  i. Oliver Jackson of Enniscoe, co Mayo (d 1691)
Both BLG1886 & BLGI1912 identify Oliver's wife Jane as "dau. of Dr. King, Archbishop of Tuam". However, Wikipedia ("Archbishop of Tuam", 07.01.24) shows no-one named King in the 17th century. Noting the dates, we speculate that she may have been ...
