 William JACKSON, father of Matthew JACKSON. I cannot yet locate him, but he may be the William JACKSON mentioned in Deed 748.494.509229 Dated: 27 January 1820, of Ballyboy, Kings Co. If her was, then his wife was Mary FOSSITT.
 Ballygibbon, Parish of Carbury, Barony of Carbury, Co. Kildare. There are two such townlands: Ballygibbon East containing 568 acres & Ballygibbon West containing 758 acres. In the 1836 Voters Register, a William JACKSON was a freeholder of one parcel of land and a leaseholder of another. In both 1833 and 1834, his name appears connected to Ballygibbon in the Tithe Applotment books. Both these deeds precede the referenced lease of 1837. A Daniel JACKSON also shows in the tithe applotments with land in Ballygibbon in 1833 and 1834. Interestingly, this parcel of 222 acres, 2 roods and 32 perches, is close to the total acreage in Ballygibbon West leased by Daniel and William JACKSON from Viscount Halberton in two separate parcels at the time of Griffiths. Valuation in 1853. A smaller parcel was leased by Daniel JACKSON in Ballygibbon East, and as well he leased a small parcel to a tenant. There are JACKSONs in Ballygibbon in both the 1901 and the 1911 Census who are likely related to the JACKSONs in this deed.
 Matthew JACKSON (d aft 1849). He married 1stly Margaret FAWCETT, and secondly her cousin, Marianne ALEXANDER.
