Innkeeper at Tibbermuir according to my Dad. Blacksmith according to Margaret Low. Died old

Frances found his death certificate which says that his father was Thomas Jackson, shoemaker and mother was Ellen Jackson, m.s. Walker.

There was a painting of him at 9 Chiltern Road that I now have - see image.

1851 census: Parish of Methven (Perth, Crieff Road)

John Jackson, aged 28, journeyman blacksmith, born in Aberdalgie – appears to be living with the blacksmith, Daniell Murrie & his family (John’s relationship to Daniell is that of “servant”).

1861 – He lived at Annatland with his wife, Catherine, and was a journeyman blacksmith. He was 38, she was 33. The children living with them were Marjory, aged 6; Helen, aged 5; Catherine, aged 3; Jane, aged 2. John was born in Aberdalgie; Catherine senior & Marjory in Methven; and the other children in Tibbermore. There is one lodger, David Marshall, born in Abernethy and aged 27, a mason labourer.

1871 – The family still live at Annatland. John is now described as an innkeeper. The children are Marjory (now shown as born in Tibbermore), Elen, Janie, Maggie and Ann (aged 5). There also 8 lodgers on the same page.

1881 – John lives at Annatland, still an innkeeper with his daughters Jane (house keeper) and Annie (scholar).

1891 – John is living at South Black Ruthven, Tibbermore with his daughter Annie, who is described as “now gardiner housekeeper.”

1901 – John lives at Parkneuk, Tibbermore alone and is described a retired innkeeper.

Death Certificate – John died on 20/3/1910 at Arnotlea 1, Kinnesswood, Portmoak aged 87 of senile decay. The informant was Matthew Low (or Law), undertaker.

Auntie Margaret told me that her gggrandfather was Ebenezer Jackson of Portmahomack (?) - the grandfather of her Granny Low. This does not agree with the death certificate of John Jackson. I guess that Ebenezer was the brother of Thomas (or maybe even the father?).

In Pop's diary (my Granfather - James Brown Low) for 1911, it says that Grandpa dies on 23rd March 1910. " Was at funeral with J Durward and A Hamilton. We drove from Arnotter to Tibbermore Churchyard and arrived there about 4pm. J Staig and Rob Stewart along with his father were waiting. Rev H Smith conducted services at grave and then Mr Polloch prayed before funeral left K."
