 The Jackson Family of Urker, Co. Armagh (near Crossmaglen

 

First Generation

        1.  George JACKSON (1718-1782)

       George married Margaret O'LAUGHLIN (abt 1722-1797). [1]   She is said to be descended from the Royal House of Tara. [2]

       The forebears of the Jacksons are said to have come from York in England, and to have moved to Ireland with Cromwell.  They were given large grants of land in Co Carlow and Kilkenny called Mount Leinster.  This estate was entailed.  George sold out his interest in it in the mid 1700s and moved to the Crossmaglan area in Co Armagh, where he was master of the charter school. [3] The family lived initially at Liscalgot House before settling at Urker Lodge.

       George JACKSON and Margaret O'LAUGHLIN had the following [4] children:

            2       i. Anne JACKSONAnne married Richard. JOHNSTON . [5]

            3      ii. Sarah JACKSONSarah married Phil GRIFFIN . [6]

            4     iii. Margaret JACKSON. married Thomas or George SHEA . [7]

            5     iv. Jane JACKSONJane married GROGART . [8]

            6      v. Margaret JACKSON married Roger WORTHINGTON . [9]

            7     vi. Alice JACKSON [10] Alice married LOY .

            8    vii. Mary JACKSON Mary married J. GILMORE . [11]

    +      9    viii. David JACKSON . Married Margaret BRADFORD

           10     ix. John JACKSON .  John is said to have married his housekeeper, but no further details are known. [12]

           11      x. George JACKSON(aft 1744-aft 1820) George died young. [13]   He did not marry NOTE: This is unlikely. He became a lawyer in Dublin . [14]

 

 Second Generation

       9.  David JACKSON birth date unknown. 

       David married Margaret BRADFORD . [15]   Margaret was born circa 1739. [16]   She died in 1820. [17]   Although nothing is known of Margaret's ancestry at present, her parents may have been John BRADFORD and Barbara COULTER, who are known to have had a daughter and whose sons were contemporaries of Margaret. The fact that Margaret named a daughter Barbara adds strength to the possibility.

       David JACKSON and Margaret BRADFORD had the following [18] children:

    +     12       i. Margaret JACKSON .

    +     13      ii. Barbara JACKSON .

    +     14     iii. John JACKSON was born circa 1780 [19] and died in 1817. [20]

Third Generation

       12.  Margaret JACKSON birth date unknown.  Margaret married firstly Thomas McKEE . [21]   Margaret married secondly SEAWRIGHT . They had one child, who died young. [22]

       Margaret JACKSON and Thomas McKEE had the following child:

           15       i. Samuel McKEE .

  

       13.  Barbara JACKSON birth date unknown.  Barbara married Tom STEPHENS . [23]   They had three children, only one of whom lived to adulthood. [24]

       Barbara JACKSON and Tom STEPHENS had the following child:

           16       i. (female) STEPHENS

                              (female) married DONELLY .

       14.  John JACKSON was born circa 1780. [25]   John married Elizabeth McCULLAGH . [26]   Elizabeth was born circa 1788. [27]   She was the daughter of James McCULLAGH and Sarah McCARTER . John died in 1817. [28]

       The Jackson family is associated with the place called Urker, and with the house Urker Lodge.  In the civil parish of Creggan there is a townland called Urcher, sometimes referred to in earlier records as Urker. George Jackson was recorded in the townland of Liscalgat in the 1766 religious census, but not in the adjoining townland of Urcher.  His grandson's widow Elizabeth Jackson was recorded in the 1828 Tithe Applotment Books as holding 30 acres in Urker and 50 acres in Liscalgat, the earliest record of association of the Jacksons with Urker to be located so far.  Thomas Ball's "Valuation Records", 1840, show Mrs. Elizabeth Jackson as holding 59 acres in Urker. [29] (Ball was the major landlord of the parish at that time. The entry for for Creggan Parish in Lewis' Topographical Dictionary of Ireland - 1837 records amongst the prinicpal seats in the parish: "Urker Lodge, the property of T.P. Ball Esq".)

       In late 1846, Elizabeth was evicted from her farm. On 4 December 1846, a road-contractor from Cregganduff named George McClean was found dead on the Dundalk Road.  Five days later, in a report to the Under-Secretary at Dublin Castle, Matthew Singleton R.M. of Newtownhamilton indicated that he thought the murder might have been committed by the Ribbonmen and that one cause assigned for the murder was that Mrs. Elizabeth Jackson was dispossessed of a large farm on the expiration of a long lease. Part of the farm was given to Middleton, bailiff to the property, and a nephew of the murdered man. Matthew Singleton wrote: "Several persons refused to plough the lands last week. Deceased sent his horses to do a few days before he was murdered." [30]

       It is not known whether the Jackson family regained possession of this farm, or moved to another property in the same area. In 1850, the address of Elizabeth's son David was recorded as Urker Lodge, Creggan.  It appears this was where Elizabeth spent the remainder of her life. Elizabeth died in 1880. [31]  

       John JACKSON and Elizabeth McCULLAGH had the following children:

           17       i. Sarah JACKSON was born on 24 June 1811. [32]  

                              Sally married Joseph BARKLEY on 15 September 1848. [33]   Joseph was born on 26 April 1811. [34]   He was the son of James BARKLEY .  Occupation: Presbyterian minister.  Educated at Old College in Belfast and in Edinburgh, Joesph was ordained to the pastoral charge of the Congregation of Carnmoney, Co Antrim, Ireland on 28 May 1845, and ministered there until his death. [35] Joseph died 17 November 1880. [36]   He was buried in the grounds of the Presbyterian Church in Carnmoney, Co Antrim, Ireland. [37]  

                              Sally died 6 February 1892. [38]   She is presumed to be buried with her husband in the grounds of the Presbyterian Church in Carnmoney, Co Antrim, Ireland, as she is recorded on the stone erected by the congregation in memory of past ministers and their families. [39]

                        Kathleen Jackson m Major
      F.G. Jackson

                        Next to these 1890 has been written.  It is unclear which entry the year is meant to refer to, for Francis was born in 1879, as presumably was Kathleen if they were twins.  It is also too early to be a marriage year for either, as they would only have been eleven years old.

           52    vii. Frances Olive BROWN was born on 27 October 1882. [157]   Frances spent the later years of her life in the Unites States of America.  It is not known exactly when she first went there.  In 1906 a Frances Brown of Armagh arrived in New York on 2 September aboard S.S. Columbia, which had sailed from Londonderry. [158] Unfortunately, the original passenger list is not available, so it cannot be determined whether or not this is the correct person.  Her age was given as 18 years, which is not right for our Frances, but not as far in error as that recorded in a later confirmed arrival in 1920, when she was shown as being 29 years old.

                        Frances is known to have been living in Edgehill, Poughkeepsie, New York in May 1914, when her sister Blin joined her there.  In 1915 Frances visited Ireland, returning to the U.S. on board the S.S. St. Paul, which sailed from Liverpool, England on 22 September 1915 and arrived at New York eight days later. [159] The passenger list indicates that she had previously lived in the U.S. from 1910 to 1915. She rejoined Blin at Edgehill in Poughkeepsie, where she worked fo r a Dr. Dobson, and later lived with him and his wife. [160]

                        In 1920, Frances again visited her family in Ireland.  She returned to America in May 1920 aboard S.S. Mongolia, which reached the Port of New York on 13 May after sailing from Southampton in England ten days before. [161] On this occassion, the passenger list recorded that she would be travelling to Poughkeepsie to stay with a friend, Mrs Dobson, that the duration of her intended stay was 3 months, and that she had previously resided in the U.S. for the periods 1905-6 and 1916-9.

                        One further record of an entry into the United States has so far been located.  She was amongst the passengers who arrived in New York on 4 January 1923 aboard S.S. Fort St. George from Hamilton, Bermuda. [162] This appears to have been a vacation as the passenger list records that her permanent residence was Poughkeepsie, New York, and she was going there to again stay with Mrs Dobson.  Of interest, Frances was also recorded on the passenger list of the Fort St. George when it arrived in New York from Bermuda on 27 December 1922, but the entry had been ruled through. [163] Perhaps Frances missed the boat, and had to wait until the ship's next visit to Bermuda to get home.

                        The various passenger lists contain physical descriptions of the passengers, but it is hard to build up a picture of Frances' appearance from these.  In all of them she is described as having a fair complexion, but there the agreement ends.  In 1915 and 1923, her height was given as 5 feet 4 inches, but in 1920 it was recorded as 5 foot 6 inches.  She was described as having light hair and blue eyes in 1920 and 1923, but in 1915 was recorded with brown hair and grey eyes.
