Lang Syne English Family Information History Fact Book - Jackson
Bearers of a name with roots that lie deep in what was the ancient Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria, the Jacksons of today are heirs to a rich and vibrant heritage.
Many have been at the centre of bloody conflict, with three of the name becoming recipients of the Victoria Cross, the highest award for valour in the face of enemy action for British and Commonwealth forces, while Thomas Jonathan Jackson was the American Civil War Confederate Army general known as ‘Stonewall’ Jackson.
In politics, Andrew Jackson served as 7th President of the United States, while in the much different world of music the Jackson family was the American group whose most famous member was Michael Jackson.
The dramatic tale of the Jacksons is recounted here.
