Deed 489 163 307720

July 16 1794

NOTE: I have created also a page where I have listed all the known pertinent deeds related to this Memorial, and have also included initial stabs at Family Trees of the JACKSONs & SHARPs mentioned in this deed. SEE: JACKSONs of Nashe's Quarters. There is still much more to unravel. I suspect the eventual outcome will be of interest to a range of JACKSON lines, including those who emigrated to Ontario, Canada from Carlow in the early 1800s.

[1] Right Honourable Robert Lord Viscount Wicklow aka Robert HOWARD (1757-1815).

[2] Esther SHARP. I had initially thought that her husband was Samuel JACKSON SEE: DEED: 1834 May 1. I am less sure now that I see in 1820, there is a reference to Samuel JACKSON’s last will published 1797, and yet Esther was already a widow by the time of this 1794 deed.

[11] Benjamin BURTON. It was a Benjamin BURTON who first purchased the property known as Ballynakelly, and other land in County Carlow in 1712. These were properties confiscated after the Williamite War and sold by the Crown during the reign of Queen Ann (1703-1713). SOURCE: Co. Carlow IGP. The BURTON family Papers are held at the Carlow Library. Benjamin Burton (died 1728) was an Alderman in Biographical history Dublin and served as Lord Mayor in 1706. He represented Dublin as a Member of Parliament (MP) between 1703-1723. He purchased lands in 1712 at Burton Hall (formerly called Ballynakelly) and elsewhere in Carlow from the Trustees for the Sale of Forfeited Estates. He established a ban k in Dublin in the early 1700s but in 1733 the bank collapsed and Parliament passed an Act vesting the real and personal assets of directors in trustees. Several documents in the collection make reference to this Act of Parliament. Apart from Benjamin Burton, several other members of the family are frequently named in documents in the collection. His son, Charles Burton, was knighted in 1750 by the Viceroy and created a baronet in 1758. He was also an MP for Dublin between 1749-1760. Another son of Benjamin Burton, Colonel Robert Burton, was MP for County Carlow between 1727-1760, and for the Borough between 1761- 1765. In all, between 1700-1770, eight members of the Burton family held seats in Parliament for Carlow, Clare, Sligo and Dublin. Charles, the 2 nd Baronet, remodelled Pollacton (or Pollardstown) House circa 1803. He married Catherine Cuffe, daughter of the 2 nd Baron Desart, in 1778. Their son Charles, the 3 rd Baronet, was born in May 1779 and married Susannah, daughter of Joshua Paul Meredith. Their son, Charles, the 4 th Baronet, died unmarried in 1842. The baronetcy created for Charles Burton in 1758 became extinct in 1902 with the death of Sir Charles William Cuffe Burton. He left most of his assets to his niece, Grace Ellen Burton, wife of Sir Francis Charles Edward Denys, who assumed the additional name of Burton, and her sister, Gertrude Mary Burton. Lady Denys Burton’s heir was her third daughter, Georgina Denys Burton. She was the last of the family to live at Pollacton House. She left her property to her nephew who demolished Pollacton House in the early 1970s. The house at Burton Hall was sold in 1927 and demolished around 1930.
