This parish intrigues me because of its connection to the JACKSONs of Ballybay who were involved in the United Irishmen. It may very well be that they were also related to some of the earlier JACKSONs in this parish. Most of the data on this page, albeit not all of it, came from Irish Church records at Irish Genealogy The Irish government truly deserves to be thanked for their support of this intiative.

Jacksons of St. Michans Parish 1600s 1700s

 

  • St. Michan’s Parish is still on Church Street http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Michan%27s_Church
  • LDS has microfilm with 1700-1724 records.
  • The registers of the Church of St. Michan, Dublin. Ed. Henry F. Berry. 1907 at London Library. St. James Square
  • Pill lane, home of several JACKSONs, is now called Chancery Street – it ran up to Church street.
  • A few paces from the "unmarked grave" sleeps Oliver Bond and the Rev. William Jackson, who took poison so as to "deceive the Senate" and dropped down dead at the feet of the judge who was about to pass sentence of death upon him. http://www.chaptersofdublin.com/books/OldDub/chapter4.htm
  • Collins Peerage of England Vol 8 mentions a number of members of the O'NEILE family of Coleraine that were buried here in the 1700s. Their names do not show up in the St. Michan's database. Anne O'NEILE was the wife of Richard JACKSON (1729-1781). It would not be surprising therefore, to see a number of Coleraine JACKSONs in the records, or at least to have been members of the congregation.

 

One of my interests in following this parish is that the JACKSONs who were involved in the United Irishmen and based in Ballybay were supposedly connected to this church – although so far, I can find no record of them. The earliest origins that we have for them connect them to Lisbano, Co. Meath.

 

Sir Richard Robert MADDEN in a letter published March 27, 1847 in Freemans Journal and Daily Commercial Advertiser mentions a tombstone memorial to Oliver BOND erected by his widow, a daughter of Henry JACKSON of Church Street. As Madden comments: The tombstone over it was on the left-hand side of the church by the ball and nearly opposite the entrance to the vaults on that side. There I saw it in 1841 in 1842, but there exists no longer. On visiting the spot last Monday it was only after a long search that I found this too much injured one large piece entirely broken off in a corner at the other end of the churchyard adjoining Bow Street, and in the same place the tombstone of the Rev. William Jackson, who died in the court of King's bench, in the city, in 1795. The Henry JACKSON is most likely the same JACKSON mentioned in connection with a foundry at Pill Lane in various deeds and the place of the tombstone was supposedly where earlier generations of the family had been buried. The fact that William JACKSON was also buried there may be telling in terms of a possible familial link.
