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.
