Just because these bits were found in the Limerick Chronicle and other sources connected to Co. Limerick does not mean that all the people mentioned in them were only from Co. Limerick. Many were, but many were included for other reasons.

PS. This site represents a considerable amount of work, and those responsible deserve to be commended. Where I know more about the individuals, I have included either other information or else a link to my site where their family connections are shown. In time, I will update my own site with all these new specifics.

Mon 19 June 1769 Died at Limerick, Joseph Jackson,
Attorney of the City Courts
County and City of Limerick, Births, Marriages and
Deaths, Part 1. From the Magazine of Magazines 1751 to 1761.
Edited and transcribed by Noel Murphy.
Another controversial issue relates to the famous “Piper
Jackson”. My reading of this is based largely on articles in “Treroir”,
the magazine of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eirann. While Miles Jackson was the owner
of a large estate in Lisduane, Granagh, in the early 1600s, other Jacksons
owned another estate at Creeve, Ballybay, County Monaghan around the same time.
These Jacksons were “Linen Lords” and owned a string of race horses. A
descendent of these Jacksons came to Lisduane, Granagh in 1750, he was Walter
Jackson, better known as “Piper Jackson”. It was from “Bean an Turrit” that
Walter Jackson got the estate in Ballingarry, some time afterwards. His
brother Miles Jackson was sheriff of Limerick and, perhaps was one-time owner
of the Lidsuane estate. “Piper Jackson” spoke in Irish, but it was Ulster
Irish that he spoke in, which means that he did come from County Monaghan
where he composed and played the pipes before he came to County Limerick.
David O’Riordan. Granagh/Ballingary, County Limerick.
History of Limerick (A. Watson &Co., Limerick, 1787), a more contemporary
take on the history, disputes this, as does a more recent publication – the confusion
seemingly arising from the fact that there were two “Piper Jacksons”.. The Forrest Minstrel by James Hogg, edited Peter Garside, & Richard D. Jackson. Musical notation from pre-1811 sources by Peter
Horsfall, Edinburgh University Press, 2006.
