Earlier versions are at Version One and Version Two. There is also a page with a map of Cavan, and where I focused on townland names. For a chattier version, and one that may be easier to follow for the first time, see my blog post: Jacksons of Cavan. Excellent maps of Parishes in Co. Cavan can be found at Genuki. They have been extremely valuable in helping to plot where people were. Townland/Parish/Barony lists are also at Wiki and at seanruad. I have repeated the townland/parish/barony info for each entry. It does get repetitive, but I suspect this works best for people who use Google.

Jacksons of Cavan My third stab at this

 

In terms of tracking the JACKSONs related to Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915) of Urker near Crossmaglen, my starting point is a sentence in a history written by his daughter Amy Oliver LLOYD in the early 1900s:

 

My Father came of an English family, one of whom went to Ireland as an officer in the Army in Queen Elizabeth's reign- was given a grant of land in County Cavan.

 

Early 1600s – JACKSONs in Co Cavan.

A useful starting point is: List of the original Patentees of Cavan, as reported by Pynnar, in his Survey of Ulster, made anno dominie 1618—19.  SOURCE: Statistical Survey of the County of Cavan. Sir Charles Coote, Bart. Graisberry and Campbell.

 

Given where we find JACKSONs in the 1761 Poll Books, as well as in the later probates, and suspecting the possibility of continuous tenancy, it is worth noting in The Precinct of Loghtee, allotted to English Undertakers:

 

XIX. 2000 Acres. Thos. Waldron, Esq. Dromhim and Dromelan On this proportion  was a bawne of sods 200 feet square, with four flankers and a castle of lime and stone within it; a town of 31 houses adjoined, having a wind mill, all the inhabitants were English : this was a great thorough fare and common passage into the country, and had 80 armed men in 53 families, of which 5 were freeholders, 17 lessees for years, and 31 cottagers, each having a house, 2 acres, of land, and commonage for 12 cows.

 

Al Beagan’s Genealogy notes : PRECINCT OF LOUGHTY

1. 2000 acres, Thomas Waldron (heir to Sir Richard Waldron, deceased): bawn of sods, stone castle, windmill; town of 31 houses; 5 freeholders, 17 lessees, 31 cottagers; able to produce 82 men with arms.

2. 2000 acres, John Fish: very strong castle and bawn; 2 villages of 10 houses each, built of stone; 4 freeholders, 18 lessees, 14 cottagers; able to produce 60 men with arms.

3. 2760 acres, Sir Stephen Butler: very strong castle and bawn; one fulling mill; two corn mills; the town of Belturbet building; 15 freeholders, 76 lessees; able to produce 139 men with arms.

4. 2000 acres, Sir George Mainwaring (grantee of Sir Nicholas Lusher): brick house, stone bawn; village of 7 houses; 3 freeholders [Henry Ches-man, 1612; John Taylor, 1613; Walter Bassett, 1615,] 21 lessees [Nicholas Lysley, 1622; Thomas Jackson, 1616; Robert Gamble, 1617: Richard Castledine, 1618; Edward Lockington, 1618; Thomas Guye, 1627; John Broadhurst, 1616; Richard Nutkin, 1616; John Reley, 1616; Robert Newton, 1616; Bartholomew Jackson, 1616; Roger Moynes, 1629]; able to produce 48 men.

5. 1500 acres, Sir Hugh Wyrrall: stone house, no bawn; 3 freeholders, 5 lessees, 8 cottagers; able to produce 26 men.

6. 1500 acres, John Taylor: castle and bawn built; village of 14 houses; 7 freeholders, 7 lessees, 10 cottagers; able to produce 54 men with arms.

7. 1500 acres, Peter Ameas: stone house and bawn; a village of 7 houses; 4 freeholders, 7 lessees; able to produce 30 men.

Total for Loughty Precinct: 41 freeholders, 101 lessees, 63 cottagers; able to produce 439 men with arms. NOTE: The name Bartholomew JACKSON is not frequent, so it may be of interest that a Bartholomew JACKSON was baptised at St. John’s Dublin in August 24, 1648, a son of Francis JACKSON and Elizabeth HARRISON.

 

More detail on the Sir Mainwaring aka Manneringe leases is in The Conquest of Ireland: An Historical Account of the Plantation in Ulster at the Commencement of the Seventeenth Century. By Rev. George Hill. Irish Genealogical Foundation, 2004 reprint. Page 466:

Rinald Horne was the first Patentee. Sir George Manneringe (45), Knight, hath 2000 acres called Lisreagh. Upon this proportion there is built a Bawne of limestone, 44 feet long, 12 feet high, with two Flankers; also a brick house of the same length, and 20 feet high, all very good work and strong. There is also a small village consisting of seven houses, all which are inhabited with English families. I find planted and estated with British families upon the land,

Freeholders, three, viz.,

1 having hundred and 44 acres.

2 having hundred 92 acres.

Lessees for years, 21, viz.,

4 having 48 acres of the peace.

1 having 51 1/2 acres.

8 having 24 acres apiece.

4 having 48 acres apiece.

3 having 20 acres apiece.

1 having 30 acres apiece (46)

Footnote 46: ... [sublet by Sir George Mainwaring] on 20 August, 1616, he demised to Thomas Jackson the poll of Agharaugh, and two acres of Gortnecoshe, with a messuage for a term of 41 years. ... the said Sir George, on 20 August 1616, ... did demise unto Bartholomew Jackson and his assigns the other pole called Pollybrally, for 41 years.

 

The names of several townlands have changed, as have their boundaries. I am guessing that Agharaugh is now known as Agharahan and Gortnecoshe is what is now known as the townland of Gortnekesh. Both townlands are in the parish of Annageilliff, Barony of Upper Loughtee.

 

If the Thomas and Bartholomew Jackson were related, they may have lived in adjacent townlands. My best guess about what Pollybrally might be is the townlands of Pollamore Near and Pollamore Far since they share borders with the first two townlands.

 

 

JACKSON Quakers in Co, Cavan in mid-1600s:

 

·       In Cavan County, Anthony JACKSON, Richard FAYLE and others had their corn taken under pretence of tythes. The said Anthony JACKSON and Thomas LUNN were also committed to prison at the suit of Ambrose BARCROFT, a priest, for tythes. SOURCE: Proceedings of the Sesqui-Centennial Gathering of the descendants of Isaac and Ann Jackson at Harmony Grove, 1875, 285,

·       Anthony Jackson, Jr. was born in 1628 in St. Michael's Parish, Eccleston, Lancashire, England to Sir Anthony Jackson. He was baptized in St. Michael's Parish. Anthony and his brothers lived during the time of Oliver Cromwell and supported him. He and his brothers were members of Cromwell's New Model army. They were granted Irish Estates in 1648. In 1649, Anthony and his brothers went to Ireland with the New Model army to put down an uprising. They decided to remain in Ireland, and lived on their estates that were granted to them earlier. They lived in Lurgan, Ulster, Ireland. Anthony married in Ireland, but his wife's name is not known. Anthony was initially a member of the Anglican Church, but in 1654 he and his brother Richard were converted by William EDMUNDSON to Quakerism. [NOTE: There are several “Anglican” JACKSON ministers in this time frame in Ireland. Many are attached to those that settled in Londonderry and Coleraine.] William EDMUNDSON, Anthony JACKSON, Richard JACKSON, and three others established the first Friends' Meeting House in Lurgan. In 1655, EDMUNDSON purchased land in County Cavan for him and some of his friends, including Anthony and Richard JACKSON. They moved to Cavan with their families the same year. There, they established a Friends' Meeting House. William EDMUNDSON and Richard JACKSON moved away from Cavan in 1659, but Anthony chose to remain in Cavan. They established a Friends Meeting House in Mountmellick. Anthony suffered religious persecution in Cavan and Old Castle areas in 1670 and 1681. In 1681, Anthony was suffering persecution and was later imprisoned due to failure to pay tithes. He died after 1681 and before 1696 in County Cavan, Ireland. SOURCE: Richard S. Harrison, A Biographical Dictionary of Irish Quakers, (Four Courts Press, 1997), p64,

·       Anthony JACKSON (1628-1681/96) NOTE: In calculating the date range for his death: He was recorded as still imprisoned in 1681 in Cavan, and his name does not appear on his son's Isaac's marriage in 1696. He married Unnamed (b: Abt. 1643) in Old Castle, Co. Meath.

·       William Edmundson, who was one of the earliest members of the Society of Friends that settled in Ireland, was born in Little Musgrave in Westmorland in 1627, and was bound apprentice to the trade of a carpenter and joiner. He afterwards joined the Parliamentary army, and served in it for some years. On leaving the army and marrying, he settled in Ireland, and after remaining in the Co. Armagh for several years, he and the several other members of the Society of Friends mentioned in the passage from Rutty's History above cited, migrated with their families to the Kempston estate in Co. Cavan. After some time disputes arose between them and Colonel Kempston, the owner, as to the conditions on which lettings were to be made to them, whereupon some of them left that part of the country and removed to Mountmellick in Queen's Co., while others continued in the Co. Cavan, and established a meeting for Divine worship (William Edmundson's Journal y p. 67 fed. 1820]). Richard Jackson above mentioned was one or those who settled in Mountmellick, while Anthony Jackson (reputed in the family to be his brother) remained in the Co. Cavan. Both Richard and Anthony were leaders of the ' passive resistance ' movement of the day against the payment of tithes, and their losses by distraints year by year are to be found in the Records of the Sufferings of the Society of Friends in the Registry of the Society in Dublin.  The Jacksons in Ireland Edmund T. Bewley

·       They resettled themselves with him, initally to a town named Lurgan in County Armagh, Ireland, and then to a place called Belturbet [NOTE: This is in the Parish of Annagh, Barony Upper Loughtee – in most townland maps, it is situated in the Corporation Lands] in the midwestern wilds of County Cavan. No question or further musings about that. - After a year or two, and both having suffered terms in "gaol" there for the Quaker practice of not paying tithes to the Established Church, Richard left the Belturbet area with some other Friends and settled at Mountmellick in County Laois where they organized a Quaker Meeting. Then Anthony did the same, but went instead to a place called Oldcastle in County Meath, Ireland. Why did they split up? Musings concerning several of my possible JACKSON Ancestors Bob Wilson, Beaufort SC USA.

·       Abt 1666, a daughter of Anthony JACKSON, Sarah was born Cootehill, Parish Drumgoon, Barony Tullygarvey. She also had a number of siblings, some of whom may have settled in Cavan. NOTE: Follow-up:  Quakers of Cootehill, Patrick Cassidy. Breifne, Vol IX, No. 38 (2002) p567.

Early 1700s.

·       The 1705 will of Samuel JACKSON mentions townlands in Co. Cavan:

    • Drumgola, Parish of Urney, Barony of Upper Loughtee, Co. Cavan
    • Bratley NOTE: There is a townland named Brackley, Parish of Templemore, Barony of Tullyhaw. There is also a Brackley Lake on the border of the townland Derrymony, Parish of Templeport, Barony Tullyhaw, Co. Cavan, Prospect, Parish of Templeport, Barony Tullyhaw and Co Leitrim. Roisin Lafferty pointed out there is a townland named Brackley in Aughnamullen Parish, Co. Monaghan, although the notes seem to indicate that it is in Co. Cavan. Interestingly, Brackley in Aughnamullen is where there were subsequent settlements of JACKSONs.
    • Lisnagroat –I suspect this is Lismagratty, Parish of Castleterra, Barony of Upper Loughtee. It is on the south west boundary of the parish adjacent to Drumgola which is on the eastern boundary of the parish of Urney.
    .
NOTE: Since this piece was first posted, I have been inching forward with respect to learning about these townlands.

 

    • Samuel JACKSON seems to have bought the lands from Sir Robert HAMILTON – a descendant of the HAMILTONs who owned significant acreage in Co. Cavan, although not in the early part of the 1600s in that Barony.
    • Samuel JACKSON had had a brother-in-law, John JACKSON minister of Skipworth, Yorks and Doncaster. The only sister of Samuel who is a possible wife of this John JACKSON would be a half-sister Mary (b abt 1653). The Rev. John JACKSON who owns lands in Cavan in 1761 [see beneath] may be a relation of his – since clerical posts tended to run in families.

o   One of Samuel JACKSON’s full sisters, Jennet JACKSON (born btw 1633-1641married Oliver NORTH, Esq. of Newton, 6 July, 1671, Like Samuel, her parents were Rev. Richard JACKSON, rector of Whittington from 1640 to 1680, and Dorothy OTWAY. Their son, RICHARD NORTH, Esq. of Newton, baptised 18 Jan. 1684, succeeded his cousin, Abigail JACKSON, of Jackson's Hall, in her estates in England and Ireland  SOURCE: A Genealogical and Heraldic Dictionary of the Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland.  Part II. This has further significance in terms of further research since in 1812 Richard Toumlin NORTH (b. 1782) sold the Jackson's Hall estate ,,. In 1820 The large square opposite to Jackson's Hall (the present Royal Hotel) was formed out of a portion of the Hall garden. In 1821 the New Road was formed cutting through the site of the recently burnt down Rose and Crown Inn that adjoined Jackson's Hall on the north side. After the fire Mrs. Roper, the landlady, removed to the latter house and rechristened it the Rose and Crown, which name it bore until Queen Adelaide stayed the night here on 24 July, 1840, when the Inn from this honour took the name of the Royal Hotel. On this occasion Mr. Upton sent a fine dish of char, caught in Lilymere, for the Queen's table.. British History He also sold almost all the Irish property, reserving however 1,000 acres in the co. of Cavan. I [NOTE: I have yet to determine where these Co. Cavan lands were, but Griffiths has a number of NORTHs living in the Parish of Annagh.]t is also of interest that a B.N. NORTH supplied the bibliographic information on Leonard JACKSON, brother of Samuel JACKSON (?-1706) in Biographical Register of Christ’s College 1505-1905.  Vol II 1666-1905 Compiled by John Peile. Cambridge University Press. 1913

o   1729 Jan 21 Memorial: Rev Robert JACKSON of Tatham  of Co Lancaster in Kingdom of Great Britain of 1 pt & Thomas MEREDYTH of Newtown, Co. Meath…. Transfer of land called Reisk 50 acres [NOTE: I believe this is the townland of Reask, Parish of Annagelliff, Barony of Upper Loughtee] bordering on Carloandstowne [NOTE: I do not know what this might be.] also land in Island of Emloguh [NOTE: I do not know what this might be – although it might be Eonish Island, Parish of Kilmore, Barony Upper Loughtee.] WITNESS: Francis NORTH of City of Dublin & Wm FORSTER clk to NORTH. NOTE: This Robert JACKSON was likely a nephew of Samuel JACKSON (?-1706), and a son of Rev. Leonard JACKSON. The townland of Reask is significant because it borders a townland leased to a Thomas JACKSON in 1616. NOTE: See above for JACKSON-NORTH connection. In 1733, a Francis NORTH was a Notary Public in Dublin. See Memorial: 71-461-52143

·       1728 March 6 Memorial 59-198-40059. For £100, Rev. Thomas SHERIDAN of Dublin City to Rev.

Killashandra is a town, in the Barony of Tullyhunco (aka Tullaghonoho in Coote’s table appended to his Pynnar document and Tullaghconche in Pynnar’s List). Richard JACKSON (1722-1787) died without issue. His will mentioned holdings in Co. Cavan, but no names of townlands. He descended from the Jacksons of Kirby Lonsdale, Westmorland who first settled in Coleraine and is in my Rootsweb tree. I suspect these lands came through Richard’s wife Nicola Anne Sophia HAMILTON (the early land grants in this Barony were to earlier HAMILTONs). See Deed 308-467-206556: Richard JACKSON and wife Nicola Sophia JACKSON otherwise HAMILTON… coheirs of Sir Francis HAMILTON late of Castle Hamilton Co Cavan deceased.. and also coheirs of Arthur Cecil HAMILTON late of Castlehamilton deceased.
