NAMES: Sir Thomas JACKSON; PLACES: Cavananore; Anaghavakey; Urcher aka Urker; Liscalgot. These were lands that meant more to the family than simple acreage - they were the lands where his family had its roots, roots that went back at least to the mid-1700s in some properties and a century earlier in others.

NOTE: For the purposes of filing this document, I am assuming that it was writtten about 1915. This list of lands had to have been prepared after 1903 (when Sir Thomas Jackson became a Baronet) and before or shortly after his death in 1915. It may have been a list prepared at the time of his will probate. We also know that he owned the Cavananore lands at least by the time of the 1901 census and likely (judging from mentions in family correspondence) as early as 1892. In all, there are about 450 acres of land[1] included in this list. There may have been lists of lands for counties other than Armagh and Louth. I do not yet know.

[1] NOTE: The rood is an area of 1 furlong by 1 rod, or 1210 sq. yds. An acre is four roods. An acre is traditionally thought of as the area that could be ploughed by a team of oxen in a morning without tiring them. SOURCE: http://home.clara.net/brianp/lengths.html  A perch is 5.5 yards2.
