Annie Maria Jackson



Annie Mary Jackson

The first wife of Thomas Fishpool Wilton is often mistaken by researchers to be the daughter of William Dockwray Jackson and Catherine Clearey. This is incorrect as their daughter married Richard Gibbons, so who is Annie?

I was given information on the Wilton family tree with this incorrect information and it was a long time before I received an email from A. Holland correcting the error.

Descendants of Annie tell the story that her name was Annabel Matilda Adelaide Jackson, however there is no documentation to substantiate that claim. The story may have arisen in an attempt to conceal her past.

Annie Maria was the illegitimate daughter of Amelia Lloyd and her birth was registered as Ann Maria LLOYD.

 

In 1861 at Wannerenooka Amelia married Peter Jackson and Annie Maria and her brother William (also illegitimate) assumed the surname.  Both of Amelia‚Äôs children married as Jackson.

 

Amelia and Peter went on to have three children of which only two daughters survived.  Amelia died in 1873 and Peter died in 1874 shortly after Annie Maria was married.
