Re: Maria PAYN Andrew JACKSON
Hello Jo, thankyou for answering my message.This is certainly the same family. Andrew Jackson & Maria nee Payn, buried Maitland Cemetery. I have info on Andrews family, he was a vitualler in Tas. He arrived about 1841 & might be the 'Mr Jackson' on the schooner "Lillias".
He owned several properties in Gunnedah & Maitland. I dont have any info on the UK side only the names of 6 children for Peter Jackson and Mary Taylor. I didnt know his mother came to Tasmania! Great information thankyou. I looked for Margarets Will on Tas Archives just now, but can't find it for the dod 1863, can you let me know anymore about that please. I would appreciate anything you can let me know about the rest of the family & I can forward what I know about the Aust side.Maria Payn's mother was Ann Hodges, nothing more about that side.
It's great to meet a distant relative, Kind regards Deirdre
