Update: July 9, 2010. Thanks to an email from "Jean" (a contributor on the Carlow Rootsweb list) on July 4, 2010 I now know that the name sometimes rendered as PARKER was indeed BARKER.
Update: July 19, 2011. I suspect this link between BARKER-JACKSON to also be pertinent:
BARKER, Francis at Holy Trinity, Waterford Esq. Married Elizth. JACKSON 18 Feb 1748
Update July 9, 2012 George BARKER footnote #10.

Deed 1834 8 204 JACKSON-NOBLETT

 

This transcription has been accomplished with the support of voice recognition software and then edited to a point. I have not rendered abbreviations as they were in the original nor have I substituted numbers for text formats when it comes to dates. Also, I have used uppercase for all surnames to make them stand out.

 

NOTE: This deed is one of a pair – the previous deed is Deed 1834 8 203 and much of my material is repeated in the two deeds. I can’t claim to follow all the ins and outs. The names PARKER and BARKER are used interchangeably in the Memorial. Looking at the COI BMDs, it could be either, but I suspect BARKER is the more likely name. This deed references previous deeds. I have assembled a separate page including the history of leases as well as a tentative family tree: JACKSONs of Nashe's Quarters.       

 

SYNOPSIS attempt of Deed 1834-8-204:

Henry JACKSON paid Henry NOBLETT 565.7.3 & another £40.18.0 for a release of a mortgage for land that was already in possession of Henry JACKSON, Farmer of Coolmana. What I do not understand is that the previous deed seems to be the reverse – the lands going from Thomas NOBLETT to Henry JACKSON. Clearly, I could never make my living as a lawyer! The lands included:

[2] Joseph BRIEN husband of Esther JACKSON jr. daughter of Samuel JACKSON and Esther sr.

[3] Henry JACKSON. He appears as a witness to marriages in the Carlow Church of Ireland records, but is otherwise invisible in Carlow records. NOTE: I will next look carefully at Dublin records. He is a witness for Rachel NOBLETT, daughter of Thomas NOBLETT for her marriage to Thomas JAMES in 1845. He is also a witness for Henry LAMOTTE in his marriage to Charlotte LEE in 1846. In 1814, a birth of a William JACKSON born to Henry & Mary JACKSON is recorded in Carlow Parish Church. There is a burial of a Mary JACKSON (177-1837) of Blacklion in the Aghold Parish Church.

[4] Coolmana
