There are several family branches of Jacksons of Ballygibbon, Co. Kildare that will likely interconnect when more is known. None of them are extensive enough to really be called trees - branches is more like it. Shrubs, perhaps. See also: Ballygibbon Snippets.

Jackson of Ballygibbon "Trees"

 

 

Descendants of William Jackson

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

1.  WILLIAM1 JACKSON1,2 was born Abt. 1848, and died Aft. 1911 in of Ballygibbon West, Parish of Carrick, Barony of Carbury, Co. Kildare.  He married HANNAH UNNAMED Abt. 18793.  She was born Abt. 1854, and died Aft. 1911.

1.  1901 Census of Ireland, In the 1901 Census of Ballygibbon East, William JACKSON is a 53 year old farmer living with his wife Hannah and several children. The family is Church of Ireland.  In the B1: House and Building return, his is labled as house #5, a Class #2 dwelling, and is a 9 room house with 10 inhabitants. Of additional interest is that James DAniel JACKSON lives next door in house #4, and a smaller house is owned by a Daniel JACKSON and leased to a Mary SMYTH. It is likely that these three JACKSONs are related.  Frederick Mather, age 33, a cousin, was visitng. There are two MATHER families in the same townland. I would suspect that there was a JACKSON-MATHER marriage involving the two families.

2.  Deed, NOTE: This deed beneath may or may not be him. If it is, the amount of the land is a good fit with the acreage mentioned in Griffiths Valuation in 1852 as being leased from Viscount Haberton. SIgnificantly, that parcel of land was right beside land leased by Daniel JACKSON. Another reson to suspect a link between the two families.  1898 Mar 12  Deed: 1898-17-228  JACKSON – certification of title lands of Ballygibbon West containing 115 acres 3r 29 p statute measure, Barony of Carbury, Co. Kildare – fee simple. William JACKSON farmer of Ballygibbon West, Edenderry, Kings Co,   NOTE: Ballygibbon East and Ballygibbon West are townlands in the parish of Carrick, Barony of Carbury where Jacksons held leases at the time of Griffiths Valuation.  .

3.  1911 Census of Ireland, She was married 32 years, and had born 6 children, 5 of whom were still living.

4.  Note, In the Irish Naturalists Journal, there is frequent mention of a Miss E. JACKSON of Ballygibbon - 1932, 1936 & 1939 - as a contributor to a Phenological Report. This is the scientific study of periodic biological phenomena, such as flowering, breeding, and migration, in relation to climatic conditions. Perhaps she was an early environmentalist?

5.  Note, I do not know the gender, but the 1911 Census indicates that one child died. SInce this child was not named in 1901, I suspect he/she had died already.
