JOHN JACKSON (c. 1645/50-1725) was a son of Robert Jackson of Hempstead, Long Island, who had moved from Stamford, Connecticut, to Long Island, in 1644. Robert was the first of the line in this country as at present established. The son John was born about and between 1645 and 1650 presumably at Hempstead. He lived much of his life at Jerusalem, Long Island. His wife was Elizabeth, a daughter of Captain John Seaman (1610-1695 of Hempstead, by his first wife Elizabeth, a daughter of John Strickland of Hempstead. It is not known when Elizabeth (Seaman) Jackson was born or died.


John Jackson's will was made on August 26, 1724, and proved December 6, 1725, so he certainly died in 1725. The will disposed of considerable land to all his sons and left slaves and furniture to his daughters, he having nine children in all.


John Jackson was Sheriff of Queens County in 1691, was a member of the Assembly, and a Colonel of the Long Island militia. His rank in the militia was a very high one for the times and the details of his appointment are not known but the fact of his commission is well established. He was promoted from Captain to Major in 1697. In 1700 he was a Lieutenant Colonel commanding the regiment of foot of Queens County under commission of the Earl of Bellomont, Governor of the Province of New York, and later promoted.
