Death mentioned in a letter written by Robert Jackson.
Children with Martha UNKNOWN
Wrote a series of letters. Dec 27th 1820 he writes from Shadwell, London and is having trouble getting a ship and requesting money. Jan 8th 1821 he writes from London requesting money. Oct 17th 1822 he writes from Marunhorm on board a shooner (a ship) St Jago de Cuba March 24 1824 he talks of being in the Columbian service and had been taken prisoner for 4 months. He mentions a cousin Bella and Uncle James Atchison and Uncle William Silkson/Nicholson (the surnames aren"t clear) and Aunt Jane as well as brothers William and Adam. He say he plans to live in Cuba for only 3/4 years. Sept 1824 he writes about how he has been in prison but is no longer, he also mentions his brother has married a French woman, and it seems this combined with him being in prison has upset the family. My 10th 1830 he writes from Cuba reporting that money is scarce. In 1831 he writes saying a war may be imminent. He also talks of negroe slaves being paid nothing for their labour. A letter received in UK Aug 21st 1833 (so probably sent 6 months before in Feb) he writes about how he is not yet married. He mentions his parents have moved and asks to know the day of the month in which he was born. HE has heard his sister Isabella has married which backs up that Isabella Lyall nee Jackson was his sister as she married Adam in 1831. 17th Jan 1834 he is still not married and is asking to talk to his brother. It hints at a dispute in the family to do with him. He has however had a child Isabella. 16th Dec 1836 he is still not married In a damaged letter lots of which is missing (segments have just fallen off due to its age) with dates 11th May 1844/June 10th 1844 written on the envelope (maybe postmarks?) he is still working for Messrs Wright Brooks & Co of St Jago de Cuba. We can assume it is Robert he seems to be well and happy and enquires about his father.

Child out of wedlock.
In Sept 1824 brother Robert writes "The stone mason business is better in this country than any other mechanical business. I hope that my brother Adam will continue at his trade and that you will send him to some place where he will learn his business to perfection which if he does not wish to continue in his own country after he is free, the West Indies are far better wages given for men that follow that business than either Europe or America," - it"s a bit unclear but it was possible that Adam was a stone mason apprentice.

Children with Charles Henry Newton
Christened 12 APR 1846 Wingate, Durham, England according to an IGI Individual Record on familysearch.org. In the IGI Individual Record the name is spelt "Elizabeth Anne Lyill" - a mistake? It states her mother as Isabella and her father as Adam.
In Sept 1824 his brother Robert in a letter says "I hope you will put my brother Matthew to serve trade which a man in this country are nothing thought of without he has a trade" this suggests to me that Matthew was unemployed.
From a letter sent by Joseph Jackson (probably his son) it seems they set sail for America 8 of October 1849, arriving in November?
Children with French woman UNKNOWN
Could be James Banks as this person is referred to in one letter? However Joseph Jackson writes in a letter to Adam Lyall (uncle) " Father is working with brother Bankes and I is working with brother Henry"
