The location of the land in question is described: all that farm of land known by the name of Tullyagomore bounded in the West by part of Tulleyagallaghan on the north by Curromonon on the south by Mr. Reed’s farm. Tullyogallaghan is in the Parish of Newtownhamilton, in the Barony of Upper Fews, and the current townland of Dorsey (Macdonald) aka Carrickrovaddy is on its western border. The townland of Cavanakill is on the northern border of Dorsey and is in the parish of Ballymyre. Perhaps back then, it was named Curromonon, or perhaps Curromonon was in the current townland of Dorsey. This is significant, since this David Jackson lease may link back to the JACKSONs of Tullyvallen in the mid-1600s. Based on a deed of 1817, I am guessing that Tullagomore ended up being included in Tullyogallaghan - unless it got included in Dorsey. Regardless, we are within spitting distance of locating the land in this lease. 1817 August 11th is the last date that the family is mentioned in connection with this townland in the documents that I have to date. There are likely more documents to find.
