This dozen or so pages includes various bits that I have found relating to the JACKSONs who had connections with either Co. Wexford or Co. Wicklow - and a few bits in Co. Kildare. When I finish more deeds research, there will be more to add - possibly in a separate page.

COMMISSIONERS OF VALUATION (IRELAND)—BALTINGLASS UNION-MR. GEORGE CRAIG, VALUER.

§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)

(who replied) said: I am informed that the revising officer, Mr. Craig, has not made separate valuations in the Baltinglass Union such as those referred to by the hon. Member; but he has, in some few instances, changed the name of occupiers and immediate lessors, which may affect 1760 the Poor Law franchise only, in consequence of a letter from the proprietor stating that such changes had been made by him on his property. The revising officer did give an undertaking to Messrs. E. P. O'Kelly and P. Byrne, Poor Law Guardians, to carry out the alterations referred to by them, and he informs me that he has done so. If the particulars of the cases referred to by the hon. Member are supplied, the Commissioners of Valuation will cause an inquiry to be made, and if inaccuracies be found to exist, the Commissioners of Valuation will have the corrections carried into the Union lists immediately.

Kildare History

1701: In this year the first purpose-built barracks was built on the Liffey close to Dublin city (Was it at Islandbridge, or Chapelizod?) hitherto they had been billeted in private homes or in forts. [R Wyse Jackson, Queen Anne s Irish Army Establishment in 1704, Irish Sword, Vol I, 1953, p134.]

1704: 36 barracks for horse and 277 for foot-soldiers were listed this year, in some cases attached to castles. They were under the care of 25 barrack-masters. Con Costello, A Most Delightful Station , p20, notes that the only one listed in Co Kildare was at Athy. [R Wyse Jackson, Queen Anne s Irish Army Establishment in 1704, Irish Sword, Vol I, 1953, p134.]

Journal of the Co. Kildare Archaeological Society, 1981-82 Vol 16 #3. P58 Notes on the Politics of Kildare. Paidraig O Snodaigh

The bishop, Dr. Charles Jackson, had an income of £2.500 from his Diocese and was chaplain to the Duke of Bedford to boot; while the entry on the Duke of Leinster says he ‘Governs the Country of Kildare and has three boroughs in it’ ...

Journal of the Co. Kildare Archaeological Society, 2000-2001. Vol 19 #1

The annexation of the Dean of Christ church to the bishopric had the advantage of drawing able and ambitious clerics to the otherwise unattractive, impoverished see of Kildare. However, it was clear that it was the influence, status, income the comfortable residence and most importantly, the future career prospects pertaining to the deanery that help the greater traction for the incumbents of the bishopric of Kildare throughout the 18th century.

For all of these reasons, the calibre of the bishops in the 1700s was consistent with that of the leading prelates of their day. At least six of the seven 18th-century incumbents were English born and  all were graduates Oxford, Cambridge or Trinity college, Dublin. Several of these had formally filled high profile positions in the church of Ireland and in the English administration in Dublin, many having served as chaplain to the Lord Lieut. of Ireland. Clearly these clerks future appointment to the see of Kildare and by implication to the deanery of Christ church, as a propitious step in their career advancement.

... Charles Jackson, Bishop from 1765 to 1790, also served as chaplain to the Lord Lieut. of Ireland, the Duke of Bedford at an earlier stage of his career.

Journal of the Co. Kildare Archaeological Society 1991 Vol 17 #1Quakerism in the Carlow/Kildare Area 1650-1850 p133

Richard JACKSON’s descendants later moved to Ballitore (with William BARCROFT & John PIM. They became involved in agriculture and Mountmellick soon became the leading Quaker colony outside of Dublin. .... The access of Quakers to land in Co. Kildare and Co. Carlow was twofold; either they acquired it by grant as in the case of ex-Cromwellian soldiers, or those who objected to this practices (as in the case of General William Barcroft, who refused a grant of land as it had been acquired by the sword) on religious ground settled on land hitherto uncultivated. NOTE: earlier version of Ballitore was recorded as the townland of Ballitoivre. The geographic location of Carlow monthly meeting district extended from the town of Athy in south Co. Kildare to Tullow in Co. Carlow, Its development followed the course of the river Barrow and later it extended eastwards to encompass the newly established village of Ballitore in the early eighteenth century. This triangular-shaped region incorporated the four adjoining baronies ... Narragh and Reban in Co. Kildare. Where a meeting house was built in Athy and Ballitore in 1708; and Kilkea and Moone where a meeting house was built at Castledermot. In Co. Carlow meeting-houses were built at Newgarde (later Carlow) and Newtown in the barony of Idrone, and lastly at Kilconner, in 1678 in the barony of Forth. Graveyards were built in Newgarden and Ballykeally in Co. Carlow and at Ballitore in Co. Kildare.

...10 of the original Cromwellian planters (four of whom were ex-Cromwellian soldiers) settled during the first period, 1650-1675. They did not make a significant impact on the area, as five of the original families had left the area by 1700, and by 1725 all their surnames had disappeared from the Quaker registers.

.... Robert Lecky land transactions

 ... The other Quakers such as  ... and Jacksons faded into oblivion – presumably they migrated or married non-Quakers, with resulted in their disownment.

Letter from F. Burdett O’Connor to William Aylmer dated Oct 14, 1819 from South America:  ... We rode with Colonel Jackson, Chief of the Admiral’s Staff, an Irishman who like William had left the country in 1803, entered the French service, was in most of the campaigns on the Continent, Moscow, etc. etc. We have all three been together ever since. Our first halting spot was a little village about 4 miles off called El Puebla del Norte. ...

Another Jackson, a relative, was taken prisoner by Dwyers men. Dwyer, as a boy, had been much with the Jacksons, and ordered the  release of the captives; but though he was allowed to start on his way, he was killed before he got clear of his enemies, and his greyhound was found watching his body the next day.

[1] Looking at the image of the map that follows page 352, it would appear that this place is at Ballyhaddock and/or just above George’s Bridge. It is about halfway between Stratford and Davidstown. Slightly south east of Castled[avidson?]. It is surrounded by Randlestown to the north, Donaghmore to the east and Ballintruer to the south.
