For a full genealogy of the families of Deacon John Jackson
and his brother Edward, see Jackson's Hist.
, pp. 326-353. ‘It is a remarkable fact,’ says the historian, ‘in relation to these two brothers, John and Edward Jackson
, that while Edward had but three sons and John five, there are multitudes of Edward's posterity, who bear his name, and only five of John's. Forty-four of Edward's descendants were in the Revolutionary Army
, from Newton
, and not one of John's. Now (1854) there are but three families in town of Edward's
descendants, that bear his name.’

4. Abraham, s. of John (2), m. Elizabeth
, dau. of John Biscoe
of Wat., and had Elizabeth

5. John, s. or grandson to a brother of Richard (1), was an innholder, and inherited the lands of Richard on Brattle Street and elsewhere.
His first w. Sarah d. without issue 15 Nov. 1700, a. 50; by his second w. Deborah
, he had Samuel
, bap. 4 June 1699; Fifield
, b. 8 Ap. 1702, a cabinet-maker in Boston
, b. 12 Jan. 1703-4; James
, b. about 1706; Xene
, b. 2 Ap. 1708, m. Thomas Robbins
24 Oct. 1737.
John the f. d. 26 Sept. 1709, a. 64.
His w. Deborah
6. Edward, parentage not ascertained, m. Susanna Dana
29 May, 1755, and had Samuel
, b. 2 Sept. 1759; Mary
, bap. 30 Aug. 1761.
Edward the f. kept a tavern in the centre of Brighton
, contracted 21 Ap. 1660 with the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in New England
, to remove forthwith to Boston
, and to serve for three years in printing the Indian Bible
and other books, under
the direction of said Society, and of Mr. John Eliot
and Mr. Green
, at a salary of £ 40 per annum. (Mass.
. 205). Agreeably to his contract, he entered the Cambridge
printing-office, assisted in printing the first edition of the Indian Bible
which was completed in 1663, and afterwards assisted in printing other books for about ten years. The current of his life did not run smoothly.
He encountered opposition in his matrimonial designs, which he resented so highly as to bring himself within the grasp of the law. At the Middlesex County Court, April 1662, ‘Marmaduke Johnson
being presented by the Grand Jury
of this County in Oct. last, for obtaining the affections of the daughter of Ens. Samuel Greene
, without the knowledge or consent of said Samuel Greene
, also being expressly forbidden her society, being a married man, hath often endeavored to draw her into his society, threatening the death of any other that should make suit to her,--the said Marmaduke Johnson
, appearing in Court, confessed a part of the said presentment, and denied the other part thereof, which by evidence on file with the records of this Court appeared to be true; the Court
, on hearing the case, sentenced the said Johnson
to pay, as a fine for seeking to draw away the affections of the daughter of the said Samuel Greene
without his consent, five pounds; and for his threatening speeches, to give security for the peace and his appearance at the next Court at Charlestown
, in case he abide so long within the jurisdiction of this Colony; and for his presumptuous and wicked attempt of marriage, having, by his own confession, a wife in England
, that he return with the first opportunity that he may to his wife, on penalty of twenty pounds, to be forfeited and paid to the County
Treasurer; and to pay the costs of the Court
Instead of departing from the country, as required by this order of Court, Johnson
contracted to serve the society another year, in the printing-office.
He was accordingly brought before the County Court
Oct. 1663, and compelled to give bonds in the sum of £ 40, to ‘depart this jurisdiction, according to the order of the Court
, within six weeks time next ensuing, or by Christopher Clark
's ship, now bound for England
A higher authority now interposed.
At the session of the General Court, commencing 20 Oct. 1663, an order was passed, to wit: ‘Upon perusal of the Commissioners
' letter to the honorable Corporation
, and Mr. Eliot
's motion, touching Marmaduke Johnson
, printer, informing that the said Corporation have contracted with the said Johnson
for one year, expiring 10th August next; it is hereby ordered, that there be a suspension of the execution of an order of the last County Court of Middlesex
for one year, enjoining the said Johnson
to return to England
, to his wife, whom he allegeth is diseased [deceased?], and may have opportunity, in the interval, to produce full certificate thereof.’
Probably, before the expiration of the year, Johnson
furnished satisfactory evidence that his wife was dead; for he was allowed to remain and to continue the business of printing, without molestation.
His intention to marry Greene
's daughter, however, was effectually frustrated.
He m. Ruth, dau. of Christopher Cane, 28 Ap. 1670, by whom he had Elizabeth
, b. 12 Feb. 1671-2, who prob.
He resided at the S. E. corner of Winthrop and Brighton streets until 1674, when he removed to Boston
, where he d. 25 Dec. 1674.
His w. Ruth d. 1676, devising her estate, by will dated 3 Ap. 1676, to her mother, brothers, and sisters; a conditional bequest was made to her brother Jonathan, of ‘that house and land at Camb., in case that my husband's son (whom I never saw) come not to demand it, and let it be kept in repair; and in case he come, it is my will that the aforesaid house and land be delivered to him, without any molestation of him or any by or under him.’
's son probably never came to New England
; the estate remained in possession of the Cane
family until Sept. 1723, when it passed into the hands of Judah Monis
, the Hebrew Preceptor
2. John, by w. Mary, had John
, b. 17 Nov. 1662; Thomas
, b. 12 Jan. 1664.
3. John,. prob.
s. of John (2), by w. Mary, had Mary
