Nancy Jackson/Johnson

Nancy Jackson 44 appears to be misnamed in the BON but she may be married to a Jackson who is travelling separately. Her stated owner is John Bayne. The tithables for John and Elizabeth Bayne are ambiguous as there is a Nanny and two Nans in the lists at various times. The tithable data does suggest she is younger than stated in the BON. She is traveling with children owned by Bayne or his son in law George Robinson: Hannah Johnson, 13; Luke Johnson, 12; Fanny Johnson, 7; Nanny Johnson, 6, and Cloe Johnson, 18. Also travelling on the same ship is as well as Nancy Johnson 26 and her baby son, married to James Johnson. We presume that these are all one family and that Nancy Jackson is originally a Johnson. None of the Johnsons are listed in the Birchtown muster which suggest they have all settled elsewhere.
