The JACKSONs of Ballygrainey, Co. Down is a work in progress. I suspect they will click into the JACKSONs of Dundonald, Co. Down when I learn a bit more about them. For now, this is as far as I can get today. NOTE: I may have some muddled bits with respect to distingishing between the townlands of Skeagh & Ballyskeagh and Ballymiscaw.

[1] John JACKSON (?- btw 1791-1797)

·       He is placed here on a hunch since John JACKSON and Andrew JACKSON of Ballygrainey are both his executors, I am assuming that they are his sons.

    • ROD: 506-243-329353.  1797 Feb 18 Btw John JACKSON and Andrew JACKSON both of  Ballygraney  Farmers Executors and Administrators of the last will and testament of John JACKSON late of  Ballygraney  deceased of the 1 pt. & William DENNER [?]  of Belfast Co Antrim [Natlemiat?] of the other pt. John JACKSON and Andrew JACKSON did demise for 300 pounds piece of ground on the north side of Castle Street in town of Belfast containing in front next the sd st 54 feet or thereabouts with the entrance or passage leading into Hercules Lane towards Rosemary Lane 22 feet or thereabouts … subject to yearly rent of 20 pounds 10s 6d.  NOTE: See also: ROD: 441-307-284486. NOTE : This Andrew JACKSON is probably of Ballygrainey; died 11 Feb 1840 aged 75; husband of Mary who d. 12 Jun 1823 aged 49; father of James & Mary (d. 1828 aged 15) & Andrew (d. 1851 aged 41) & John (d. 1881 aged 74) ; buried Holywood parish graveyard

·       ROD: 441-307-284486. 1791 Jul 7 Btw Thomas KYLE of Belfast Mariner & John JACKSON of Ballygrany, Co Down farmer... for 300 pounds lands on North of Castle St, Belfast... NOTE: Given other leases, this would be one of the John JACKSONs of Ballygrainey, Parish of Holywood - not the Ballygrainey in Parish of Bangor.  He could be either John JACKSON (d btw 1791-1797) or his son John JACKSON (d. aft 1797), NOTE: See Also: ROD: 506-243-329353.

·       I have not entered her in the tree yet, but it is possible that John JACKSON also had a daughter Margaret JACKSON who married a John ABERNATHY, and that they had two sons Robert ABERNATHY (b1796) and James ABERNATHY born 1802)

[2] Ann

·       ROD: 514-388-337073 1798 Sep 28 JACKSON-PATTERSON Names Index 1794-  Btw Anne JACKSON of City of Dublin widow of the 1 pt & Abigail PATTERSON of Belfast Co Antrim spinster of the other part. Anne JACKSON demised to Abigail PATTERSON the tenement on Castle Street., Belfast bounded on the west by the tenement occupied by Dr. HALLIDAY on the east by part of the tenement & offices belonging to the Collector's House with the out houses offices & all other appurtenances lately possessed by Robert ASPLEY Esq. in Town of Belfast, Co. Antrim for term of 41 years yearly rent 56 pounds … NOTE: ROD: 506-243-329353. This Anne JACKSON was the widow of John JACKSON of Ballygrainey aka Ballygraney, Parish Hollywood, Co. Down, but now she lived in Dublin.  

[3] John JACKSON (?- aft 1797)

·       Hunch. This is based on him being an executor of a will of a John JACKSON who I suspect was his father.

·       ROD: 506-243-329353.  1797 Feb 18  Btw John JACKSON and Andrew JACKSON both of  Ballygraney  Farmers Executors and Administrators of the last will and testament of John JACKSON late of  Ballygraney  deceased of the 1 pt. & William DENNER [?]  of Belfast Co Antrim [Natlemiat?] of the other pt. John JACKSON and Andrew JACKSON did demise for 300 pounds piece of ground on the north side of Castle Street in town of Belfast containing in front next the sd st 54 feet or thereabouts with the entrance or passage leading into Hercules Lane towards Rosemary Lane 22 feet or thereabouts … subject to yearly rent of 20 pounds 10s 6d.  NOTE : See also: ROD: 441-307-284486. NOTE : Andrew JACKSON is probably of Ballygrainey; died 11 Feb 1840 aged 75; husband of Mary who d. 12 Jun 1823 aged 49; father of James & Mary (d. 1828 aged 15) & Andrew (d. 1851 aged 41) & John (d. 1881 aged 74) ; buried Holywood parish graveyard.

·       There is a possibility that he is the John JACKSON (1769-1848) of Knock, father of James Kennedy JACKSON. That would explain some of the links in wills and such to the KENNEDYs.

[4] Dr. James JACKSON (?-aft 1815)

They had a brother James JACKSON. All of them are likely to be one generation before the James JACKSON of this lease, but he is likely related to them.

  • NOTE: In Familia 2004, there are several references to Dr. James JACKSON as well as to a William JACKSON (who married Frances JOY) & Andrew JACKSON all in business with Francis JOY & the SIMs in paper milling in Co. Antrim. (I have ordered this edition).

Robert JACKSON, one of my own predecessors in Dunmurry, and Captain of the volunteer company of the district. His earthy career was very short; but he is still affectionately remembered here, by some old persons, as a truly amiable and excellent man – “one that feared God and eschewed evil”.  NOTE: This would be an earlier ROBERT JACKSON, but he is likely to be related: Mr. Robert Jackson, who was ordained at Dunmurray on the 11th April 1782.

He died 20 July 1865 at Rose Lodge, Co. Down. I have yet to learn where he fits in. His obit is at Belfast Morning News July 24, 1865. Buried at Holywood 24 July. He is likely related to the JACKSONs of Cultra in the 1910 Directory,

o    Jackson, Wm. J., J.P., Ingledene, Cultra

o   Johnston, F. W., The Cottage, Cultra

o   A transcript of his will is at PRONI. In it, he identifies William Archer JACKSON as his nephew, and John JACKSON as his brother, and his estate is to be divided amongst the children of his brother. This John JACKSON had a will at PRONI where he mentioned that his son William A. JACKSON was deceased and had been the executor of John JACKSON's brother James JACKSON's will. This seems to be the John JACKSON relating to many of these related agreements: The Will of John Jackson late of Clarendon-street Londonderry Gentleman who died 25 September 1889 at same place was proved at Londonderry by Mary Jackson Widow and Jane Jackson Spinster both of Clarendon-street Londonderry the Executrixes.
