1. Mountstuart Goodricke Jackson (1836 – 1857)
2. Keith George Jackson (1842 – 1916)
Currently I have not investigated further, as this line will probably be well documented because of their peerage. One thing I did establish through the documentation I have read is that Keith George spent considerable time in Argentina, which does sound rather interesting.
Amelia’s brother, George followed into his father’s footsteps and spent sometime in India. He died in Bombay in 1838.
Amelia and George’s father George Waddell was born in 1788 in Glasgow and was a surgeon with the East India Company.
In a very strange way, I feel that I have almost done a full circle. Having taken this branch forward two generations I am now going to head back to Amelia King, who was Esther’s sister and the individual that started this whole project off. I also want to research a bit more into the parents of the King sisters.
Amelia and Esther, which were 2 of the 10 children, were born to Mary Budd and John King. Mary Budd was born in 1744 in Puttenham and was the sister of my direct ancestor. She was the daughter of Henry Budd and Martha Ottway who married in 1724. Mary married John King in Puttenham on 4th August 1767 and he died in June 1803 in Puttenham. Apart from that almost nothing is known of him.
However, a search of Family Search and my original notes from the parish records taken quite a few years ago shows a John King born in Farnham in 1744 to John King and Jane Planner. I have a hunch this is the details I have been seeking. Farnham is a market town about 6 miles from Puttenham so it is quite feasible that John and Mary met on market day. How romantic!
