Jacksown Early Origins



The surname Jacksown was first found in various shires throughout Britain including Cambridgeshire which listed two families in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273: Robert filius Jake; and Henricus filius Jake.

The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted.
