Today we’ve updated Early New England Families, 1641-1700adding one new sketch. This new sketch features Edward Jackson and his family. Edward lived in Whitechapel Parish, London, England, before relocating to New England with his wife and young children about 1642. He settled in what is present-day Newton, Massachusetts.

The Early New England Families, 1641-1700 study project is led by Alicia Crane Williams. This project highlights heads of families mentioned in Torrey’s New England Marriages to 1700, focusing on individuals who immigrated from 1641 through 1700, grouped by year of marriage.

Interested researchers should also read Alicia’s recent Vita Brevis post, Genealogical Clusters, which discusses her research process and interesting discoveries while preparing this specific sketch.
