I have assembled a number of Luke JACKSONs into a table, and sorted it by date to see what perks up. There are several strays that I suspect will be solved by further work in the Deeds Registry.

Luke JACKSON

 

 

Nottingham

1828 [NOTE: The decade is a guess, based on context] Rev Luke JACKSON late of Stake Parsonage in Co Nottingham but now of Hucknell Torkard... lands in various Irish counties.... ROD: 838-82-562660. NOTE: Need to look again at the land holdings for clues. Is he related to Rev. George JACKSON or Rev. Peter JACKSON? In 1816, there was a “Draft appointment and release of land in Hucknall Torkard, Nottinghamshire, from Rev. Luke Jackson”. It referred to:

Ann Jackson of Hucknall Torkard, widow and relict of Luke Jackson late of Moor Green in the parish of Greasley, Nottinghamshire, and mother of Rev. Luke Jackson. A Luke JACKSON of Hucknall died in 1805. SOURCE: The Monthly Magazine. The Nottingham Parish Registers record the marriage of Anne CORDEN & Luke JACKSON of Moor Green Parish of Greasley on Oct 6, 1774. Their son, Rev. Luke JACKSON was a subscriber to a book on horsemanship. The Nottingham Parish Registers also include a Luke DAVIES who married in Oct 13, 1691 an Eleanor Parker. Given that a Luke DAVIES was a grandfather of the Luke JACKSON b aft 1724, this is intriguing. Unfortunately the 1818 will for Luke JACKSON contains no reference to lands in Ireland.  It only mentions his wife, Mary, daughter Phoebe & son Luke. Crockford’s Clerical Directory for 1870 includes the background for Rev. Luke JACKSON of Hucknell Torland, Nottingham – St. John’s Coll Cambridge, B.A. 1811; M.A. 1814; Desc 1811, Pr 1812. There was also a blacksmith named Richard JACKSON at Hucknell Torland mentioned in The Jurist Vol 11.

Byron’s Lines Addressed to a Young Lady: [Footnote 2: The occurrence took place at Southwell, and the beautiful lady to whom the lines were addressed was Miss Houson, who is also commemorated in the verses "To a Vain Lady" and "To Anne." She was the daughter of the Rev. Henry Houson of Southwell, and married the Rev. Luke Jackson. She died on Christmas Day, 1821, and her monument may be seen in Hucknall Torkard Church.]

His property at Loonburn with all its stock and farming implements was also bequeathed to George A. Jackson and son George, and each succeeding heir.
