1754 will (pr 1761) of Stephen Jackson of London.
I give and bequeath to my brother Joseph Jackson that one two and thirtieth [1/32] part which I hold in the ship Tavistock of which Captain Nathanial Peesh was late Commander.
Note - Joseph Jackson d. 1760 and never took part ownership.
Good chance it went to their nephew Richard Jackson of the King's Council.
