NOTE: This deed is one of a pair – the following deed is Deed 1834 8 204. I can’t claim to follow all the ins and outs. The names PARKER and BARKER are used interchangeably in the Memorial. Looking at the COI BMDs, it could be either, but I suspect BARKER is the more likely name. This deed references previous deeds:

SYNOPSIS attempt of Deed 1834-8-203:
Henry JACKSON paid Henry NOBLETT 565.7.3 & another £40.18.0 for a release of a mortgage for land that was already in possession of Henry JACKSON, Farmer of Coolmana. What I do not understand is that the following deed seems to go in reverse – the lands going from Henry JACKSON to Thomas NOBLETT. Clearly, I could never make my living as a lawyer! The lands included:
PRONI T808 includes a collection of JACKSON related records collected as part of the Groves Manuscripts. Of particular interest when it comes to Co. Carlow is the mention of the following deeds:

A true copy.
 Estyer [Esther?] JACKSON. I am guessing that this would be Esther sr, wife of Samuel JACKSON who was deceased by 1834. She was the mother of Esther JACKSON who married Joseph BRIEN and also mother of Henry JACKSON jr.
 Joseph BRIEN husband of Esther JACKSON jr. daughter of Samuel JACKSON and Esther sr.
 Thomas NOBLETT. Merchant. He is described as a hotel keeper of Hacketstown in the Church of Ireland records of the marriage of his daughter Rachel NOBLETT in 1845.
 Henry JACKSON. He appears as a witness to marriages in the Carlow Church of Ireland records, but is otherwise invisible in Carlow records. NOTE: I will next look carefully at Dublin records. He is a witness for Rachel NOBLETT, daughter of Thomas NOBLETT for her marriage to Thomas JAMES in 1845. He is also a witness for Henry LAMOTTE in his marriage to Charlotte LEE in 1846. In 1814, a birth of a William JACKSON born to Henry & Mary JACKSON is recorded in Carlow Parish Church. There is a burial of a Mary JACKSON (177-1837) of Blacklion in the Aghold Parish Church.
 Nashe’s Quarters. By the time of Griffiths Valuation, this was the official name of this land.
 Long Meadow
 Andrew STEWART. It may be that he connected to the earlier STUARTS of Co. Carlow.
 Thomas JACKSON. I believe he was a brother of Samuel JACKSON and hence an uncle of Henry JACKSON sr. of Coolmana and father of Henry JACKSON jr.
 Soliska aka Loliska aka Stralusk, Parish of Haroldstown, Barony of Rathvilly, Co. Carlow
 Francis JONES
 Samuel JACKSON. I suspect he was a son of Joseph & Rachel JACKSON and the father of Henry JACKSON sr.
 George BARKER aka PARKER
 Joseph JACKSON
 William MOORE
 Charles’s Park
 Widow Murphy
 River Dereen
 George PARKER aka BARKER
 Joseph BARKER aka Joseph PARKER
 Rachel JACKSON. Unfortunately, the name “Rachel JACKSON” is not unusual. Given the involvement in various deeds of the BARKER or PARKER family, it is possible that her maiden name would be either BARKER or PARKER. It is not impossible that she was a JACKSON before her marriage as there was a Rachel JACKSON, daughter of Roger JACKSON. She was b. Mar 25, 1700 – baptised at Tullow. In the Quaker tree, there is also a Rachel JACKSON (1684-1686) b: 23 Mar 1684 d: 28 Apr 1686.
 Straluska aka Stralusky
 Samuel SHARP
 Thomas ALCOCK
 Valentine KINSHALLA
 Widow BYRNE
 Abraham PARKER jr. son of Abraham PARKER
 Abraham PARKER sr. father of Abraham and Joseph PARKER
 Cestui qui vies NOTE: A tenant pur autre vie is in the same position as an ordinary tenant for life except that his leases will determine, not on his own death, but on that of the cestui qui vie, or rather at the expiration of the then current year of the tenancy (b); and he may therefore make a lease to commence after his own death (c).

 This lease length of 1,000 years is likely helpful to know in terms of tracing this back further.

 Michael HICKEY. His surname is one of the earlier families to settle in CO. Carlow from England.
