This surname is also very common among African Americans (see also 2 below).African American: from the personal name Jackson (or Andrew Jackson), adopted in honor of Andrew Jackson, the 7th president of the US; or adoption of the surname in 1 above, in many cases probably for the same reason.History: This extremely common British name was brought over by numerous different bearers in the 17th and 18th centuries.
