The distinguished surname Jaksolm first emerged in the borderlands between England and Scotland. The name is related to the personal name Jack, a pet form of the popular "John," meaning "God has favored," and refers to "a son of Jack." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Early Origins of the Jaksolm family


The surname Jaksolm 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. By the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379, the name had evolved to spellings that are closer to the ones used today: Johannes Jakson; Willelmus Jacson; Robertus Jackeson; and Willelmus Jakeson.

Migration of the Jaksolm family to the New World and Oceana


Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Jaksolm family name Jaksolm, or who bore a variation of the surname were John, Margaret, Robert and Henry Jackson, who all settled in Boston, Massachusetts in 1635; Abram Jackson, who arrived in Virginia in 1667; Ann Jackson, who immigrated to Maryland in 1744.
