Of his new home in Barnstaple, in North Devon, he said: "We hope it will be a family hideaway where my brothers and sisters can escape media attention when we need to. I can confirm that he (Michael Jackon) has been to Barnstaple on private visits in recent years along with my brother Jermaine and a few other Jackson siblings (not worth mentioning cause they're not famous enough)... My family love North Devon and the wonderful countryside and friendly people. I am looking forward to living in Barnstaple and I hope the Barnstaple public will respect our family's privacy." So that's Barnstaple, North Devon... Barnstaple, North Devon, England. The small town of Barnstaple will be playing host to the Jacksons, leave them alone, they want their privacy while they stay in Barnstaple. North Devon. England.
