Copies similar to the enclosed have been sent to the following descendants of George Jackson HEIG it is possible that you may know of others, if such be the case, I should be glad to forward the information to any address you may be kind enough to give me.
I want the work to be as complete as possible.
nv - I am a bit confused at the moment, GHJ's handwriting makes it difficult to distinguish between J's and T's. To further compound the problem, looking on the LDS site for the children, I can only find George Monat Keith Clarke (31/10/1838), Edward Jackson Clarke (23/7/1831) and James Howard Clarke (12/2/1837). George and James are noted as being christened in Westminster and Lambeth and having father James Fernandez Clarke, Edward is noted as being christened in Stamford, Lincoln and having father Thomas Fernandez Clarke. The LDS site also has a note of the marriage between Mary Elizabeth Jackson and Thomas Fernandez Clarke on 18 October 1827in London. PS now found Mary Jane Clarke christened 1842 and Charlotte Clarke born 1844 and Hannah Maria Clarke in 1847 all in London father James Fernandez Clarke
On 5/4/02 received this from Rob Darlington - We can now formally welcome Nikki Vine as a third cousin once removed from Wendy and David. The birth registration for Eleanor Clarke, born 21 June 1840 arrived today. The clerk was very thoughtful. Father is shown as James Fernandez Clarke, a Surgeon. Mother is "Mary Elizabeth Clarke, late Clarke, formerly Jackson" Under residence it says she lived at St. Jamess, Westminster "on a visit at Louth". Of course when I started to find the three daughters of George M K Clarke I had no doubts. Why else would GHJ contact them if they were not family? But isnt it revealing how the folks of that time kept track of their relatives? Now I have to rewrite sections of their story.
