This is one of those pieces of research where I cobble together what I can, and try to make sense of it. When I can go no further, I post it in the hopes that either someone else can make sense of it all, or else some parts of it will help someone else to break through their brick wall. This focuses on JACKSONs in Co. Cork, but the family had connections to many other counties and families, particularly in the Quaker and Protestant circles, but not exclusively in them.
NOTE: There are also extensive footnotes about Lodowick JACKSON of Youghall, Co. Cork.

Strettell JACKSON & various connections made by deeds


It helps when one finds a JACKSON with a slightly unusual first name, Most JACKSON’s  chose their son’s names from a pretty limited palate – William, John, George, Richard – at least in the 1700s. For this reason, the name of Strettell JACKSON was an intriguing find, also because I had found enough deeds to make learning something new somewhat possible. Since I started this page, I have included this family in my rootsweb tree. NOTE: There may be more updates there that did not find their way onto this page.


Once I got into it, I realized that this family also has links to the Duddington line of JACKSONs. Since families often intermarry more than once, this is worth bearing in mind.


As part of my exploration of the JACKSONs of Cork, I have included three bits in this piece:

  • A family tree situating Strettell JACKSON with others in Co. Cork.
  • Deeds connected to him.
  • Some other names likely connected to his line of JACKSONs in Co. Cork.
  • Some deeds connected to these other JACKSONs.

NOTE: Joseph Devonshire JACKSON, was the son of Strettell JACKSON. His sister, Anna Strettell JACKSON married John TUTHILL whose father, George TUTHILL took on VILLIERS name as a result of his uncle Edward VILLIERS[5].




Once I had looked at this first batch of deeds, then I started to look sideways at some other deeds that connect up with other JACKSONs in Cork in the 1700s. They may or may not be related to Strettell JACKSON and his father Thomas JACKSON, but if nothing else, they are a reasonable place to consider as a place to look next. As part of this digging, the involvements of Lodowick JACKSON shed light on JACKSON family connections to Cork, but more work needs to be done. I hope someone knows more than I do.


  • Since the offices of sheriffs, mayors and such were often granted as much as a result of family and social standing as anything, the following mentions are worth noting:


Mayors and Sheriffs of Cork 1700 - 1799

1726 Sherriff of Co. Cork Ambrose Jackson

1735 Amb. Jackson, Mayor of Co. Cork

1795 Strettel Jackson, Sheriff of Co Cork


  • The 1766 Census of Youghall mentions both a John JACKSON & a Widow JACKSON. Also, Officers of the Youghal Union Fuzileers in 1782 included: Major-Com., Thomas Green; Captains, John Reeves, William Jackson and David Freeman; Lieutenants, Thomas Walshe and James Greene; Chaplain, Richard
    Vincent; Surgeon, Benjamin Jackson. SOURCE:  The History of the County and City of Cork. by Rev. C.B. Gibson, M.R.I.A., volume 2 (of 2), published by Thomas C. Newby, London, 1861.

  • Jacksons are included in an alphabetical list of the English (mostly from SW England) who settled in the vicinity of Bandonbridge, Cork during the plantation scheme of Elizabeth I, circa 1588-1603. SOURCE: Brehony, Tony, West Cork - "a sort of a history, like." (Wicklow: Kestral Books, Ltd., 1997) pp.120-121.
  • In the mid 1600s, a John JACKSON of Bandonbridge was on the Cromwellian side of the battles for power[7].
  • In the early 1900s, Sir Thomas JACKSON’s daughter Dorothy St. Felix JACKSON (1887-1964) settled at Barony House (or cottage) Glengarriff, Co. Cork. An alternative name for Glengarriff was KILMOCOMOGUE (Lewis Topographical Dictionary). I have often wondered why she chose Co. Cork.

1834-1-204   Warren JACKSON Upper Lane Griloughs, Co. Cork, B. Dunallow






[1] Unnamed CLARK. This names makes me sit up and pay attention because of the JACKSON-CLARK connections in Coleraine in this time frame and earlier. It would seem that his sister married a CLARK as well. NOTE: The deed that references her marriage deserves another look.

[2] John TUTHILL (1744-1814) married Elizabeth JACKSON (1750-1826) of Fanningstown, Co. Limerick. His grandson John TUTHILL (1793-1876) married Anna Strettell JACKSON (1793-1844) of Cork. This is intriguing because this Elizabeth JACKSON’s line has a Thomas JACKSON (1669-1769) about whom I know nothing and his dates would be a fit with the Thomas JACKSON who is so far at the top of the Strettell JACKSON tree. Elizabeth JACKSONs family are included in the Duddington line of JACKSONs. Since families often intermarry more than once, this is worth bearing in mind. SEE: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/familytree/JACKSONs-Duddington.html

[3] Thomas STRETTLE. NOTE: Anna STRETTLE (1725-1800) was the wife of Josua JACKSON (1722-1774). I would expect that there is some familial connection.

[4] Joseph DEVONSHIRE is an interesting name given that Strettell JACKSON named a son Joseph Devonshire JACKSON,

[5] Edward VILLIERS. His  connection to the JACKSONs is as follows:

 1 John Villiers

[6] Lodowicke JACKSON is another one of those delightfully rare names.

·        In Oxford Journal Notes and Queries  Nov 16, 1907 p388 : LODOWICKE JACKSON – Can any English of Irish correspondent of N & Q give me genealogical particulars of this family of Lodowicke Jackson. His daughter Elizabeth was baptised in St. Mary’s Church, Yoghall, Co. Cork on 8 June 1666, and interred there 1667. Could he have been a son of Anthony Jackson, who was interred in the Temple Church, London in 1666? Wm. Jackson Piggot. Manor House, Dundrum, Co. Down.

·        National Archives UK record him as a witness to land deal between Francis Drake & Thomas Brough in 1655/6: Property as in MS. GLY/297.
Recites (i) that Sir John Trevor has conveyed the premises to Thomas Harler and John Kersey, gent., in trust for (a) by deed of even date; (ii) that by deed, 22 October 1651, the premises were conveyed from the Trustee of the late parliament for the sale of lands of the late king, to John Reyner, Thomas Brough and William Stebbing; (iii) Sir John Trevor has delivered this deed to (a) who agrees to deliver copies to (b), pay the costs and exhibit the original when required.

·             A later Lodowick JACKSON had an estate in Prince William County, Virginia in 1742.

Adds that these captives have been carried into Algiers, and that some of the seamen think, from the description given, that the person so taken is Ludlow. SOURCE: National Archives, UK.

SOURCE: Calendar of the Manuscripts of the Marquess of Ormonde. Preserved at Kilkenny Castle New Series, Vol VI. London 1911

·        It seems he may have been a paymaster, and was challenged by those who were not paid: FARMERS OF THE REVENUE TO EARL OF ARRAN. 1682, July 22. Dublin. — Among the assignments drawn by us for the last March pay which was lately issued Capt. Charles Murray being assigned on Mr. Lodowick Jackson of Youghal for his three months pay, required an absolute acceptance to be paid at the very day, which the collector not being satisfied to do otherwise than usually, he hath by a public notary protested the assignment. SOURCE: Calendar of the Manuscripts of the Marquess of Ormonde. Preserved at Kilkenny Castle New Series, Vol VI. London 1911

·        Then it seems that he fell out of favour: LODOWICK JACKSON TO ORMOND.  1683, April 10. Youghal. — Concerning the suspension of his contingent employment since the 25th of December last. The present Managers will not consent to restore him unless he accepts of Dungarvan, a place void of business and of conversation. He refers to having offered Mr. Greatrax as a surety. Without his Grace's protection this usage must turn to his ruin for his great and untainted reputation is blasted, and his Grace's poor old servant is now to begin again in a worse condition than when he came over with his Grace. He relies on his Grace's wonted goodness to recommend him to a service in his Grace's family, wherein his wife, being one of the daughters of Sir George Gwynn, Baronet, would be glad of the honour to assist her Grace as a confectioner. His son, whom he has kept at Kilkenny School, is fitted by his small growth, and other education, to wait on his Grace or his Lady Duchess as page, or to attend on Lord Ossory in his travels. He presumes this because Lady Thurles told him his mother was nearly related to her. Abstract. Calendar of the Manuscripts of the Marquess of Ormonde. Preserved at Kilkenny Castle New Series, Vol VI.
