Looking through the snippets beneath, it seems likely to me
that Gordon JACKSON (1794- 1849) M.D. is the one who married a Mary ROCHE at
St. Nicholas Without, Dublin on Aug 29, 1829. Also, that a subsequent Gordon
Jackson M.D. (was related to him. The first Gordon JACKSON (1794- 1849) had a
brother, John JACKSON of Capel St., an Iron Monger, whose daughter Jane married
I suspect that the Gordon JACKSON who died in 1890 in the
townland of Rathe, is related to the Dr. Gordon JACKSON M.D. (probably born in
1882) whose name is connected in 1913 to the townland of Rathe I suspect they
are all connected to the Gordon JACKSON who broke the windows of James DYAS in
They may also be related to the retired Naval Fleet Surgeon
born in Ireland abt 1833 who I suspect died in 1910.
I do not yet know how they all fit together, but these are
at least some starting clues. I know that there are some errors in the silverbowl
tree that I have posted at Rootsweb.

DYAS vs JACKSON
Monday the 7th inst was tried at Cavan
Assizes, before the Hon. Justices Cruickshank, an action bought by Mr.
James Dyas, of Kings Court , against Gordon
Jackson, Esq. A very active Magistrate of the county Cavan, to
recover damages for breaking the plaintiff’s windows on account of his not
illuminating them on the 9th of August last, when intelligence
was received of the surrender of Valenciennes..... verdict for the
NOTE: I wonder if this
was the Gordon JACKSON in the Lisnaboe Tree, who was a son of Thomas
JACKSON & Ann GORDON. The DYAS and JACKSON families intermarried in
America. See: Bill
Farrell files. Mary Jackson b: 25 Jun 1788 d: 1849 +John
Dyas b: 28 Dec 1782 d: 14 Aug 1862 in of New Orleans and
Nashville. Mary JACKSON was a daughter of Alexander JACKSON and Mary HENRY
of Cremorne, Monaghan.
See Siege of Valenciennes – it was part of the French
Revolutionary Wars. Anglo-Austrian forces took the town in July 1793 - the
year that is referred to by the 9th of August last. The politics behind
this action would indicate that Gordon JACKSON was opposed to the French
Revolution, while DYAS was likely in favour (hence the emigration of DYAS
family members to America, as well as a number of JACKSONs - but not Gordon
JACKSON. Incidentally, Valenciennes was retaken by the French Revolutionary
armies in August 1794.

Gordon Jackson lived at Rothe, County Meath,
Child of Gordon Jackson
John Robert Jackson was the son of Gordon Jackson.1 He married Susan
Malcomson Barcroft, (d Apr 4 1964 – buried in Woodlawn
Cemetary Saskatoon, Canada – so it is possible that John Robert JACKSON d
1975, since he is in the same cemetery) daughter of Thomas
Malcolmson Barcroft [(1838-1911) a JP of Dundrum House, Co. Armagh] and Alice Murphy, on 6 July 1920 in a childless marriage.

Gordon Jackson lands at Rathe
1803–2005 → 1910s → 1913 → January 1913 → 6 January
1913 → Written
Land Purchase (Ireland).
HC Deb 06 January 1913 vol 46 cc838-9W
§ Mr. PATRICK WHITE asked the Chief
Secretary whether the untenanted land on the estate of Surgeon Gordon
Jackson, situate at Rathe, Kilmainham Wood, also the land of Sir Lionel
Alexander, situate at Cruicetown, county Meath, has been offered for sale to
the Estates Commissioners?
§ Mr. BIRRELL The Estates Commissioners
are unable to identify the Gordon Jackson estate as the subject of
proceedings for sale under the Land Purchase Acts before them. The estate of
Sir L. C. W. 839W Alexander is
the subject of proceedings for sale direct by the owner to the tenants under
Land Act, 1903, and the owner has included for sale to the Commissioners
some 272 acres of the lands of Cruicetown. When the estate is being
dealt with in order of priority the Commissioners will consider the question
of purchasing the lands.
NOTE: In the 1901 Census,
the two JACKSON families at Kilmainham, Co. Meath are both Catholic: the
families of Owen and Patrick JACKSON. A William JACKSON at Rathe, Kilmainham
is a grandson and servant of Patrick MURTHA – both of them Catholic. Is it
possible that the family which had been Church of Ireland switched?

Gordon JACKSON, age 68 (hence b abt 1833) born in Ireland is
living with his wife Mary A (born in Birmingham) and his children Gordon V.
JACKSON (17), Richard B. JACKSON (14), Arthur L. JACKSON (13) – all born in
England, and also his sister Sophia JACKSON age 76, born in Ireland (est 1825).
He was a District Inspector R.N [Royal Navy] Retired. [NOTE: He was already
retired in 1888 according to Naval lists. I also suspect he was a Fleet
Surgeon, since in 1878 there is a reference to a Gordon JACKSON F.S.] They
are all living at the same place in the 1891 Census – but here is wife is
referred to as Maryanne V. JACKSON. This makes it possible that she was Mary
Anne Vienna JACKSON, widow of Gordon JACKSON who died July 8, 1910 (Source:
