Starting in 1657, the first generation -Richard JACKSON of Drogheda (carpenter, sheriff etc.) - seems to have been quite successful. His son, Alderman Richard JACKSON also seems to have succeeded although his various pension requests in 1713-1715 lead one to wonder how well he was doing near the end of his life. By 1727, his son George seems even more financially precarious as he pleads for money so he can place his two sons as apprentices. The Corporation finally says, enough in 1730: and yt for the future, no petition or application be received from the said George Jackson for any further relief.

NOTE: I am indebted to Brendan Hall. In this instance, his chart enabled me to find the JACKSON references much more quickly than would have otherwise been possible. SEE:

For historical context, see also: JACKSONs in Creggan and Drogheda.

 

I have sorted this table by date. The year is indicated in red, if according to our current calendar conventions it would have been that year rather than the year previous (the original text used an older calendar convention). Also, I have shaded the boxes to indicate my best guess about which generation of Richard Jackson is being referred to as follows:

Richard Jackson elder

Richard Jackson jr

Richard Jackson ???

I have much more to learn here.

 

It is also worth referring to the Hearth Money Rolls here:

There are two Garr Wards mentioned on p259: ffor the Parish of St. Peters- Mr. Edward Chseshire, Mr. John Grahame and Mr. John Walls, appointed overseers of the Highways without West gate, and to have the two Garr Wards, Tholsel warde, Shop streete and Deer streete [aka Dyer Street]to repair the said ways. It is also mentioned on p42: to make an assessment on Gare Ward and Tholsell ward for soe much money as will pay for a water pumpe erected and putt upp in Stokewell Lane. (which heads north at the western end of Dyer Lane) Pillory Street was later named Peter Street. It starts at the end of Lawrence Street and goes north to Magdalene Street.

[1] It is likely pertinent that a Mr. Jackson, schoolmaster, resident in St. Lawrence Ward in a two hearth home in 1664, is related to Richard JACKSON – possibly a son. This is on the north side of the River Boyne.

[2] This is on the same side of the river as Lawrence street, hence on the north side of the River Boyne.

[3] St. Mary’s is on the south side of the River Boyne.

[4] I think this is on the Co. Meath side – the south side of the River Boyne.

[5] Given earlier references to St. Johns Hill, I am guessing this is likely on John Street and therefore on the south side of the River Boyne.

[6] Ennismott, Co. Meath. I don’t know where this is, but the following reference in  Armagh Clergy was interesting: NOTES ON St. MARK'S CHURCH.  This was established as a Chapel-of-Ease to St. Peter's and erected into a P.C. with no cure of souls attached in 1828. The church was built In 1828 at a cost of £1,918 I83. 7d. for the accommodation of families who could not obtain sittings in the parish church. The Corporation gave £276 18s. 5|d. towards its erection, the Primate £100, private subscriptions £640 2s. Od., and Board of First Fruits £900. The Corporation endowed the Curacy with the rectorial tithes of Ennismott, value £48 15s. Od., and the Patronage having been assigned by them to the Primate he added £50 per annum (see D'Alton's Drogheda, I, 50). After Disestablishment the church not being needed nor used it was sold by the R.B., with the consent of the Diocesan Coimcil, and is now a Temperance Hall. There are no records. See St. Peter's.

[7] NOTE: See JACKSON of Carramore Tree. An Oliver JACKSON was also one of those included in  Cromwell’s arrivals.
