These little family trees can more correctly be called shrubs – they have so few twigs so far, and many of them have been grafted on with a bit more tape and glue than what I normally feel comfortable with. Still, I have cobbled them together in the theory that something is better than nothing and they can always be pruned or even turfed if they turn out to be in error.

JACKSONs of Tullyvallen Trees

 

 

 

The reason for my interest is because of a convergence of a few facts:

1.     1668 – a Daniel & Sarah JACKSON had leases to abt 250 acres in Tullyvallen granted under Thomas BALL.

2.     In 1739, George JACKSON schoolmaster of Liscalgot ordered cows and turf from his father – who I suspect had to live within something like a 5 mile radius, which Tullyvallen is. Also, BALL was his landlord.

3.     In 1766, a Richard JACKSON of Tullyvallen is enumerated in the 1766 Religious census as a Protestant. To further confound us, there is also an Owen JACKSON, a papist.

Learning more about the Tullyvallen JACKSONs may result in us being able to click them into an earlier generation – which at this point I suspect will have connections to either Coleraine, Drogheda – or even more likely, both.

 

The birth dates are estimates unless they have been taken from the Freedugff or Creggan registers – in which case there is a date as well as a year indicated.

 

It may be more than coincidence that there is a JACKSON-McKEE marriage in the same time frame in the JACKSON trees of the JACKSONs of Tullyvallen and Liscalgot. (A Margaret JACKSON (1783-1810), granddaughter of George JACKSON married a Thomas McKEE.)

 

The guess and by golly part may be a bit thin here, but it seems that Richard JACKSON (1778-1848) started at Tullyvallen and ended his life at Liscalgot. I wonder if he may have been a nephew of our George.

 

There are no Richard JACKSONs in the George JACKSON tree, but perhaps a Richard JACKSON was the one who lost the leases to the family lands and resulted in George becoming a schoolmaster at Liscalgot. This is all sheer speculation.
