1811 MARRIAGE SETTLEMENT: JACKSON & MCCULLAGH

 

Dated 24 day of April 1811
John JACKSON with Elizabeth McCULLOUGH
Copy: Marriage Settlement

 

 NOTE: In the Memorial record at Registry of deeds, DEED: 1844-3-231, the surname of the bride’s family is consistently rendered as “McCULLAGH”. The date of the Memorial,being recorded so long after the actual marriage, intrigues me. 1844 would seem to be the year that David JACKSON, the son of John JACKSON & Elizabeth McCULLAGH, moved his family from Aughavilla, Carrigallen, Co. Leitrim back to his mother’s farm at Urker. Why? I don’t yet know.

[1] James McCULLOUGH Sr, father of Elizabeth McCULLOUGH. He seems to have started life at Derryvalley and ended it at Shantenagh. His wife Sally McCARTER came from Shantenagh.

[2] Shantenagh  There is one in the Parish of Agnamullen and one in Ballybay. NOTE: Check with Wendy.

[3] Elizabeth McCULLOUGH (1788-1880), wife of John JACKSON and grandmother of Sir Thomas JACKSON.

[4] John JACKSON (1780-1817) son of David JACKSON & Margaret BRADFORD.

[5] Lisgalcot aka Liscalgot, Parish of Creggan & long time home of JACKSONs and GILMOREs. 220 acres near Crossmaglen.

[6] James McCULLOGH (?-1865), brother of Elizabeth McCULLOUGH. He married Eliza WALLACE and they had 13 known children.

[7] Andrew Coulter BRADFORD (1788-1847). Cousin to John JACKSON. At least, I think it is him. He is a bit young to take on this role, but his father died in 1790, so I am guessing that the role fell to him, even though he would have been only 23 years old at the time.

[9] Rev Charles MOSSE

[10] Thomas TERESON sr. Deceased.

[11] Rosefield. Intriguingly enough, recently The Rosefield Farm Guesthouse won an award for 2nd best Guesthouse in Ireland. . See www.glisse-roule.com/english/britain.html

[19] Thomas McMURRY, Gent. NOTE: The Memorial gives his address as Corraville, Co. Monaghan

[20] John DONALDSON, Gent. NOTE: The Memorial gives his address: Tullyvallen, Co. Armagh. I suspect that he was the John DONALDSON who wrote Account of the Barony of the Upper Fews. He was the son of Joseph DONALDSON & Anne HENRY and died unmarried.

[21] There were some differences in wording between the memorial and the original deed, but not enough for me to trouble taking the time to note.

[22] Walter GLASSCOCKE
