JACKSON Freeholders of Castlereagh. Extracted from PRONI Freeholders records (with a few others thrown in). I searched for John JACKSON, and picked up a few others in the by-catch. July 3, 2014
Probates of JACKSONs of Co. Down. I have also done a tree of the JACKSONs of Co. Down which includes many of these people, and there are many more of them in my tree who are also likely to be connected. This is just a start. There are also later abstracts which can be found at PRONI Will Calendars Search. July 3, 2014
Jacksons and others in Parish of Knockbreda, Barony of Castlereagh Upper. Griffiths valuations. July 3, 2014
BMDs of Co. Down, Parish of Knockbreda register gleanings. My focus was on JACKSONs and names known to have married into the family. It is by no means exhaustive, in part because the films I was working with varied in quality - as did my vision, depending on the time of day. July 3, 2014
Jacksons of Rathe, Co. Meath. These are just some random snippets which will hopefully end up being helpful to connect people into older family trees - in particular, those associated with Lisnaboe, Co. Meath & Ballybay, Co. Monaghan. June 19, 2014
1764 May 30 NAMES: Jane INNES, née Mary Jane JACKSON; Colonel James INNES; Robert ACKLAND; Dudley ACKLAND; Mrs. DELAMAIN; Mrs. JAMES; Mrs. DEACON; Mrs. M'LOUGHLIN; Araminta CAULFIELD née JACKSON; Susanna HAMILTON, née JACKSON; Dorothy SHINTON, née BALL; John BALL; Richard JACKSON; Mary HERON; John STEWART; Suzy TAYLOR; Nicola THOMPSON; J. McALESTER; William KENTON. PLACES: Jackson's Hall, Coleraine; Killowen Church. June 14, 2014
Jacksons of Creekstown Co. Meath. There is a story here that is itching to be told about these JACKSONs. I keep scratching, but so far have not got to the bottom of it. These documents might help others put the pieces together. April 18, 2014
1850 Sept 2 Armagh Guardian. This a very short snippet - included because it would have involved people who were well known if not related to JACKSONs and OLIVERs. Apriul 17, 2014
1912 February 16. NAMES: James HALE of Crossmaglen; Dr. William Scott McBRIDE; Eliezer GILMORE; Hugh CORR; Norman McCLEAN; John DONALDSON; Sir Thomas JACKSON; Joseph HALE of Crossmaglen; John J. JOHNSTON of Woodvale, Ballsmill; Rev. Samuel MAYES; John F. JOHNSTON [?]; John T. JOHNSTON [?] John O'CONNOR; Robert J. SCOTT. OTHER PLACES: Cregganban. The memorial references an indenture of February 28, 1882 concerning about 70 acres in the townland of Cregganbane Glebe, Parish of Creggan, Co. Armagh. April 11, 2014
Sharon Oddie Brown's Blog. I write informal pieces which I post on my blog as often as I am able to. The table on this page includes links to all the ones that are connected in one way or another to the research on The Silver Bowl. That way, you don't have to troll through recipes for cocktails and other irrelevant pieces. April 7, 2014
Pieces on my Blog - Far East related. The table on this page includes links to all the pieces on my blog which are connected in one way or another to family connections in the Far East. April 7, 2014
A table of BOLTONs in the Far East.Capt. Charles James BOLTON was Captain of the Glenartney, and was in the employ of Jardine Matheson. Some of the other BOLTONs mentioned may be relations. April 3, 2014
1886 July 29. It is interesting to see this level of attention paid to this level of local politics in England. It concerned William Ramsay SCOTT, a brother-in-law of Sir Thomas JACKSON, and his stance on Home Rule with respect to Ireland. The 1886 Home Rule bill as proposed by Gladstone was defeated. April 2, 2014
1916 Apr 13. Given that Thomas JACKSON's sister Mary GRIFFIN lived on at Urker, Parish of Creggan until her death in 1921, it is significant that the property did not pass to her, but rather to TJ's son, Thomas Dare Jackson. The valuation documents do not distinguish between the two Sir Thomas JACKSONs. The properties in the Parish of Creggan would have included lands at: Annaghavacky aka Rochdale; Cavananore ; Urcher; and Liscalgot. April 2, 2014
1902 June 26, Thomas JACKSON had already left a month earlier for England, otherwise I suspect there would have been even more festivities to celebrate his baronetcy, as well as the knighthood of Sir Chatchick Paul CHATER, and the companion of the order of St. Michael and St. George for Dr. Ho Kni. April 2, 2014
1902 May 10. This article recognizes Thomas JACKSON's 25 years of service to the Chamber of Commerce. Other names mentioned: C.S. SHARP; Mr. POAT; R.C. WILCOX. April 2, 2014
1903 July 27. David JACKSON's obit: "Of a genial, hospitable, and open-hearted nature, Mr. Jackson was one of the most popular men in Yokohama, and was highly respected by the Japanese, only recently receiving a decoration from the Emperor for his services in connection with the last loan." April 2, 2014
1905 September 27. Statue News. "Sir Thomas is looked upon out in the Orient as the strongest man of his day.  Besides his duties with the corporation he devoted much time and attention to the finances of the Chinese Empire, to whom the Peking officials turned when they found it necessary to negotiate loans for the public good." April 2, 2014
1906 January 23. Of interest in this article, aside from news of the stature for Thomas JACKSON, is the mention of his membership in the Carlton and Thatched House club. I have linked the Club mention to a Wikipedia article - the list of members is fascinating. The Club is also described on its own website: The Carlton Club. Also, Thomas' interest in golf is mentioned in this article. April 2, 2014
1915 December 23. This article gives an account of a speech by Governor Sir Henry MAY on the occasion of the death of Sir Thomas JACKSON. April 2, 2014
1901 November 28. News about JACKSONs settling at Stanstead. Thomas JACKSON to leave Hong Kong for England in March or April 1902. April 2, 2014
1901 December 10, Thomas Dare JACKSON was A.D.C. to Col George Elliot BENSON. When you notice that there was a death rate of 123/160 in one charge, it is easy to appreciate the level of anxiety that the parents of Thomas Dare JACKSON would have felt while their son was engaged in this war. April 2, 2014
1901 November 5. Thomas Dare JACKSON, son of Sir Thomas JACKSON served with British forces in "The South African War". An extensive account of his military career was written by Brian McDonald, and is included in my biography of Thomas Dare JACKSON. April 2, 2014
1899 November 20. This article describes the decay of City Hall in Hong Kong, and includes a most desultory recognition of Thomas JACKSON's gift of a portrait of Queen Victoria. I wonder where it ended up? April 2, 2014
1900 June 7. This is the shortest of reports about Thomas JACKSON and his political views. For a complete version of the speech see: transcription from Journal of American Asiatic Association April 2, 2014
1899 October 31. Sir Henry BLAKE honoured Sir Thomas JACKSON at a private Tiffin Party at Givernment house, and presented him with the letters patent for his knighthood. His accomplishments were grouped with two other Irishmen: Sir John McLeavy BROWN, and Robert HART. JACKSON points out that 2/3rd of his life was lived "here". He referred to the Bank as his No. 1 wife. April 2, 2014
1896 October 29. Thomas JACKSON's cat was killed and eaten by coolies, two of whom were arrested and received a sentence of six weeks hard labour. April 2, 2014
1887 September 9. Thomas Jackson observed an eclipse at Chiuzenji, Nikki. I have not researched and annotated the names of others present: Mr. and Mrs. Kirkwood, Colonel Anderson, Mr. AF Satow, Mrs. and the Mrs. Mauran. April 2, 2014
1886 April 12. China Mail version. This article mentions Thomas JACKSONs work in both Hong Kong and the Bank as well as his work with the Legislative Council, and the Victoria Recreation Club. Mention also of William KESWICK. April 2, 2014
1872 Clippings from The Japan Weekly Mail The Japan Weekly Mail Vol 3 I have noted the references to Thomas JACKSON & members of the DARE family. I particularly enjoyed that Thomas JACKSON’s pony, which always finished out of the money in races, was called Dismay March 31, 2014
1873 Clippings from The Japan Weekly Mail The Japan Weekly Mail Vol 4 Of particular interest in the news items included here are references to Thomas Jackson's leadership with respect to his philosophy of assuming personal responsibilty for calls on public generosity. March 31, 2014
JACKSONs in India. NOTE: Not all of the JACKSONs mentioned in The Bengal Obituary have been transcribed and posted on this page. The links to the JACKSONs of Ahenesk are interesting. March 20, 2014
ALLEN - Misc records. These are probates, deaths or appointments with connections to India, or elsewhere in the “Far East”. My purpose is to see if there are any connections to Whitworth Allen (1835-1899). March 20, 2014
1916 July 26. This letter is from Andrew Hugh Gilmore JACKSON, a nephew of Sir Thomas. There are also several letters of condolence posted concerning his untimely death. March 15, 2014
Happy Valley Cemetery. In November 2012, I visited Happy Valley Graveyard in Hong Kong. I went specifically to see the graveyard of Andrew Hugh Gilmore JACKSON, but also photographed others that fit into the narrative of The Silver Bowl, or else seemed to me as if they might. I will load them onto this page, bit by bit, as time permits. March 15, 2014
ALLENs in London Marriages 1521-1869. I have highlighted bits worth following – for example, the parish of St. Dunstan. I have yet to make a start on the notes. There are also many more names to add to make this a really useful tool, but I have yet to add the marriages of all the ALLEN daughters. There are dozens of them, as well as the remarriages of widowed wives. March 12, 2014
JACKSONs in London Marriages 1521-1869. Some of the JACKSONs who settled in Ireland in the 1600s and 1700s are likely to be noted in the entries in this table. I have only made note of two, but will add more as I have the time to research them all. March 12, 2014
Misc SCOTT obits Singapore News & other sources. March 7, 2013
The link between Sir Walter SCOTT- famous poet, and William Ramsay SCOTT, a brother-in-law of Sir Thomas JACKSON. March 7, 2014
Mentions of SCOTT men (women were not included) in the 1877 and 1879 Trade Directories of China, Japan, the Phillipines &c. Hong Kong. I am curious how many of these SCOTTs are related, in one way or another, to William Ramsay SCOTT (1838-1909). He was a brother-in-law of Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915). My interest is as much with their business connections as it is with their famililial ties. March 7, 2014
Creggan on The Peak. Creggan was the name of Thomas Jackson’s home built in the very early days of construction on The Peak in Hong Kong. It was built sometime between 1877 and 1880. The family went back and forth between England and Hong Kong several times. During the winter, when the weather was more hospitable, they often stayed in HSBC accommodation closer to the bank. I have assembled the following table to help pin down when the Jackson family was in Hong Kong and more precisely when Creggan was built. March 6, 2014
ALLENs in the Far East - a table. Not all of these ALLENs are related to the story of the Silver Bowl. Some are included not only for the purposes of elimination, but also in the hopes that others may find the information to be of use. March 5, 2014
September 8, 1874. This letter was sent to Thomas Jackson the day after the death of his daughter. The theology of the sender, his uncle the Rev. Joseph BARTLEY, was not the kind of theology that Thomas had any respect for in later life. Whether this was true then, I cannot say. February 25, 2014
1891 February 2 Hongkong Daily Press. Years ago, I noted this clipping, but did not know which paper it came from or what it referred to. Now I do. Thanks to Trade Directories, I can also identify the gentleman who was responsible for the decorating. February 13, 2014
1888 Hong Kong Directory of The Peak This is my 3rd transcription of Directories of the listings of the residents of The Peak in Hong Kong. February 10, 2014
1887 Hong Kong Directory of The Peak. Sir Thomas JACKSON was one of the first to build and have his family live on The Peak. He bilt some time between 1877 and 1880. 1887 is the first directory of The Peak where the residents are listed separately from the main directory. February 7, 2014
BROWNs of 1st Ballybay. My interest in these BROWN families is because my g-grandfather Thompson BROWN was born in 1837 in Ednaferkin aka Edenaferkin in Co. Monaghan, son of Samuel BROWN. Samuel BROWN was a merchant on Dame Street in Dublin in the mid-1800s. His wife was Mary STEENSON. I have cobbled together a page of sources showing the BROWN connections to Ednaferkin. February 7, 2014
1889 Peak Directory This annotated version of the 1889 Peak Directory is part of my research connected to the writing of The Silver Bowl. Updated Feb 7, 2014 January 30, 2014
Oliver Photos. Hopefully more will surface, and the links between some of the branches of the Olivers of Armagh will become clearer. January 29, 2014
Photos of the Ruins of Urker Lodge. This page is best viewed in conjuction with two Blogs, not on this site.The first blog shows what I learned from maps showing aspects of the townland of Urker. The second blog piece shows what I learned about the construction of the actual house. December 5, 2013
Leases owned by JACKSONs connected to Urker & Liscalgot. Following the JACKSON leases in the Barony of the Fews, Co. Armagh will likely be a key to several unanswered questions. It came out in court case concerning the murder of George M’Clean on Dec 4, 1846 that a long lease held by Eliza JACKSON was cancelled: One cause assigned for the murder is that Mrs. Jackson was dispossessed of a large farm a few days ago, on the expiration of a long lease, and part of the lands were given to one Middleton, bailiff to the property, and who is nephew to the deceased . Since we do not know which lease it might have been, all are worth investigating. The ones that I know about so far include: Urcher, and Liscalgot in the parish of Creggan; Tulleyagallaghan, Cashel, Ummerinvore, and Tullyvallen in the parish of Newtownhamilton. Updated December 5, 2013 - a dozen new entries and more hyperlinks added. November 22, 2013
December 5, 2013
A significant update on the 1787 indenture re: Tullygallaghan and David JACKSON. The location of the land in question is described: all that farm of land known by the name of Tullyagomore bounded in the West by part of Tulleyagallaghan on the north by Curromonon on the south by Mr. Reed’s farm. Tullyogallaghan is in the Parish of Newtownhamilton, in the Barony of Upper Fews, and the current townland of Dorsey (Macdonald) aka Carrickrovaddy is on its western border. The townland of Cavanakill is on the northern border of Dorsey and is in the parish of Ballymyre. Perhaps back then, it was named Curromonon, or perhaps Curromonon was in the current townland of Dorsey. This is significant, since this David Jackson lease may link back to the JACKSONs of Tullyvallen in the mid-1600s. Based on a deed of 1817, I am guessing that Tullagomore ended up being included in Tullyogallaghan - unless it got included in Dorsey. Regardless, we are within spitting distance of locating the land in this lease. 1817 August 11th is the last date that the family is mentioned in connection with this townland in the documents that I have to date. There are likely more documents to find. November 22, 2013
Jacksons in Co. Tyrone in Griffiths Valuation. More needs to be done to learn more about the family links between these JACKSONs. November 21, 2013
Townlands in Tyrone lease - Thomas JACKSON 1743 July 25. Most of these Tyrone townland names do not appear anywhere else, other than in this lease, in Google searches. The extent of the holdings mentioned in this list of 66 townland names and their alternate names is significant. I have been trying to determine where they all are as part of a clue to unravelling the ancestry of various JACKSON lines. Some of my guesses are pretty far-fetched. I am hoping that people who know more about Tyrone townland names can set me straight, or perhaps add to what I have found out thus far. November 21, 2013
Indented Deed April 10, 1795. NAMES: Andrew MOLLER, Merchant of Dublin; Henry JACKSON, merchant of Dublin; Robert SMYTHE,merchant of Dublin; Richard MOLLEEN (perhaps Richard MOLLER); Joseph HIGGINSON; Andrew FULLER; Robert GRAY; Henry VERNON; John MOORE, Deputy Registrar. PLACES: The lot measuring 84'X221'6" was bounded by Sir John Rogerson's Quay on the north, Kings Watch House on the east; Cody's lane on the south, and Bracken's Lane on the west. October 29, 2013
JACKSONs in the Down Survey. I will add more links to these 5 men as I learn more. For now, knowing the names of the townlands is a great help in moving forward. I intend to look for them next time I am in the deeds registry (nect spring). NOTE: All acreage is in Plantation measure. October 21, 2013
Some Jacksons of Waterford, Ahanesk, Glanbeg & Cork. This tree represents a substantial update of three earlier trees: The Jacksons of Ahanesk, Glanbeg & Waterford. I may have made errors in the merge, so I do hope that eagle-eyed readers will catch them and let me know. October 21, 2013
Major update of Jacksons of Doncaster. I have highlighted the names of those individuals who have a birth, death or marriage connection to Ireland. Although the earliest presence in this tree - so far - seems to be in the late 1700s, it would not surprise me if earlier branches of this family also had major connections with Ireland. The main basis for my suspicion is that the family crest of the JACKSONs of Doncaster included three shovellers (ducks) as did the family crest of the JACKSONs of Coleraine. October 18, 2013
JACKSONs of Woodfieldglen, Co. Wicklow. I have done a major update of a family tree that focuses on the JACKSONs of Woodfieldglen aka Woodfield Glen, Co. Wicklow. I suspect that we are spitting distance from being able to integrate a number of JACKSONs family trees of JACKSONs who have origins in the region, not only in Co. Wicklow. Once that is done, this tree would quickly pop back a generation or two. October 16, 2013
1794 September 26. NAMES: George BINNS of Dame St., ironmonger; James JACKSON of Essex St., China Merchant; Joshua CONNOLLY of Essex St., China Merchant; John CONNOLLY, Deceased; Thomas ADAMS of Dublin, Silversmith; Edward DRAKE; Mister FARRELL; Joseph DICKENSON; John GERAGHTLY and Thomas GERAGHTLY of Golden Lane, Dublin; James CROCKER; John MOORE. October 7, 2013
1794 March 21 Indented deed. NAMES: Nathaniel JACKSON of Mountmellick, Queens Co.; Rachel Maria JACKSON of Meath St., Dublin; Townley AHMUTY; William BRUNTON of Truck St (now Brabazon Ave); Leonard KITSON of Combe St.; Nathaniel JACKSON jr. October 7, 2013

1794 September 26. This deed is the linchpin that connects up several other bits, which enable me to place Thomas JACKSON, and his sons James JACKSON and Richard JACKSON in Dublin in the mid to late 1700s. The St. John’s Church in Dublin records, show an Emmanuel JACKSON (d. 1732) of Essex Bridge, a glassmaker. His wife was Elizabeth CANE, and he had a son Thomas born November 1, 1713. He also had a son John JACKSON b. October 21, 1725, as well as daughters Elinor and Mary (who died as an infant).

October 4, 2013
Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff - Descendants. The JACKSONs who were tanners in the late 1600s, are likely related to JACKSONs of Athy, Co. Kildare, and are also likely to be Quakers, or at very least, closely aligned with them through either marriages or business enterprises. See also: An Outline Tree of Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff. October 1, 2013
Deeds and such relating to JACKSONs etc. This page is a simply a compilation of a number of documents relating to JACKSONs, HONEs, HUNTs, and VICARs. It is intended to be a help to anyone researching these interconnected families. October 1, 2013
Descendants of Nathaniel HONE - Detailed Tree. The HONE family and the JACKSONs of Crooked Staff had a number of business ties, and at least one marriage. I have also prepared an Outline Tree. October 1, 2013
GENEALOGICAL NOTES OF THE ROSE FAMILY. This document is intriguing because there seem to be links between Josiah JACKSON of Athy and Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff, Dublin. October 1, 2013
Jackson Marriages in Dublin records. It has been and will continue to be a huge project to track all these people down. Because of other commitments, I must set it aside for a while. Still, I thought it worthwhile to post in its incomplete form since there is already lots of useful material. I am hoping that others can take the bits that I haven’t done, and let me know if they have information to add. I will update this page as time permits. September 24, 2013
1794 July 16 Lease. NAMES: Right Honourable Robert Lord Viscount Wicklow aka Robert HOWARD; Esther JACKSON née SHARP of Coolamanna aka Coolmana aka Nashe's Quarters; Joseph BARKER; Sarah BARKER née SHARP; Samuel ALCOCK; Elizabeth ALCOCK née SHARP; Samuel SHARP late of Knockballystine; Benjamin BURTON of Burton Hall; Robert SHARP of Garretstown; James McNAVIN; John WILSON; William SALE or SALL; John PIRIE; John CAHILL; Edward KANE. September 16, 2013
Jacksons of Co. Carlow. This page pulls together references to deeds and a few other bits that I have surrounding Esther JACKSON and her leases at Coolmana, aka Nashe's Quarter in Co. Carlow. I have also appended a tentative family tree - rather mor of a shrub actually, as well as a similar one for her SHARP family. This is all in the hopes that we may be able to tie them into another tree of JACKSONs. Possibilities include JACKSONs in Carlow, Wicklow, Kildare as well as Lanark Co., Ontario, Canada. September 16, 2013
1794 September 27. NAMES: Francis HUNT, Dairyman of Phoenix St., Dublin; Donald STEWART of Aston's Quay; Henry JACKSON of Pill Lane; William MOLONY; John JACKSON; John MOORE. September 13, 2013
1793 November 3. NAMES: Richard JACKSON of New Row, Coleraine; John SMITH aka SMYTH; Elizabeth JACKSON; Holton TETTLE; James STEWART of Grace Hill; James JACKSON, son of Richard & Elizabeth; John GALT; Charles GALT; James HUTCHINSON; Capt. Holland LECKY; John PARKS; James HAMILTON. OTHER PLACES: Back Lane, Coleraine; Besas aka Bellasses, Parish of Coleraine. September 13, 2013
1790 March 5th Deed. NAMES: Robert JACKSON of Woodvale, Co. Armagh; William GIRVIN aka GARVIN of Rowan, Derrynoose, Armagh; Joseph SMITH; Margaret JACKSON of Loughgall. OTHER PLACES: Knockraven aka Knockreven; Ballymaghallagh aka Ballynagallion; Moneyquin. September 13, 2013

1877 April 4. This news article enabled me to connect some of the dots in this family – not that I am related to them, but it did shine light on some tangential folk.

  • John JACKSON (?- bef 1862) of Ballynahonebeg, Co. Armagh married Louisa STAMER in 1823. She was a daughter of Sir. William STAMER & Martha RAWLINS.
  • John JACKSON & Louisa STAMER had at least 3 children: John Stamer JACKSON who died in Australia; Robert William JACKSON who died in America; an unnamed daughter who married a James STANLEY (1812-1873).
  • Their daughter, Louisa Catherine STANLEY married Robert Liddell BROWN, a book-keeper, and they had a son Robert William BROWN born January 15, 1871 in Dublin.

I still do not know which line of JACKSONs this John JACKSON of Ballynahonebeg belonged to. I suspect he had a brother named Robert JACKSON. I also do not know if the John STANLEY who married Catherine Sarah BELL (see my Rootsweb Family Tree) is the same John STANLEY noted in the probates.

August 7, 2013
Isaac JACKSON. Note: This document is significant since the early Quaker JACKSONs who resided in Ireland in the often named their sons Isaac, and yet we do not yet have one in this time frame. For example, an Isaac JACKSON (1655-1751) was the eldest son of Anthony JACKSON (1628-1696), and the name was oft repeated in that family. I do not yet know who the Isaac JACKSON in this document is, but it would not be impossible that he was a brother of the early Quakers Richard JACKSON (1626-1679) & Anthony JACKSON (1628-1696) – who were supposedly brothers. August 6, 2013
Jacksons in China & India. In this transcription, I primarily noted instances of the name JACKSON, but also of some of the known relations of Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915). When I learn more about some of these people, I will annotate them. It is most likely that the Mrs. DARE mentioned was Sarah Shrieve PARKE (1817-1879) the mother of Amelia Lydia DARE (1851-1944) who was the wife of Sir Thomas JACKSON. August 3, 2013
Jacksons in St. Peters Church Dublin. I have made a start at interpolating other known facts. Where possible, I have included a link to a known family tree. In future, correlating this data with deeds research will likely be productive. July 10, 2013
Timeline of Jackons of Coleraine. This timeline includes data from web sites, books, deeds, and archives. It is by no means exhaustive, although it already runs to close to 20 pages. June 29, 2013
Research Notes for Jacksons of Coleraine. Hopefully, this rudimentary start may be of help to others researching people in Coleraine. I will likely add to it as I learn more. June 29, 2013
Jacksons in St. Mary's Church of Ireland, Dublin. I am trying to situate these JACKSONs in various family trees in order to determine the extent to which they may or may not be related. As I learn more, I will update this page. June 16, 2013
Links to Deeds Research. I have broken the notes from my deeds research into 13 posts that are each about 20 or so pages long. Whenever the deed has been fully transcribed, I have added a hyperlink to the transcription. In some cases, I have also included a hyperlink to the pertinent family tree. More hyperlinks will be added as time permits. June 7, 2013
JACKSONs recorded in Dublin Probates. I will be adding to the notes on the people in these probates, but decided to post what I have in case others can also help out here in the meantime. My hope is to eventually have all them connected into known JACKSON lines. June 5, 2013
Jacksons in Lancashire and Cheshire Wills. My purpose in constructing this table is to help myself and other researchers track down those JACKSONs who also showed up in Ireland - either as lessees, lessors, and/or residents. May 29, 2013
William JACKSON - 1688 This document adds three new children to Rev. Richard JACKSON (1602-1681) and Dorothy OTWAY of Kirby Lonsdale: Nathaniel Jackson; Hannah JACKSON and Dorothy JACKSON. This Rev. JACKSON was the father of a number of JACKSONs who emigrated to Ireland in the mid-1600s. I have updated my Rootsweb family tree to include these new additions. May 28, 2013
Probates of Jacksons of Cavan. I have interpolated census and other material into this chart of probates of Jacksons who died in Co. Cavan.. It helps to situate each person within a larger context. May 26, 2013
Jacksons in Co. Cavan - a preliminary Chart. This chart organizes the JACKSON appearances in Co. Cavan by year. If you cut and paste it into a word document, then you can sort it by townland, parish or Barony - whatever you like. May 26, 2013
Research relating to early JACKSONs in Co. Cavan. Earlier versions are at Version One and Version Two. There is also a page with a map of Cavan, and where I focused on townland names. For a chattier version, and one that may be easier to follow for the first time, see my blog post: Jacksons of Cavan. May 26, 2013
Marriage Settlement NOTE: This page is a work in progress, but it is far enough along that I thought it might be of interest. It is significant that there is a familial tie between the JACKSONs of Ballybay, Co. Monaghan and the JACKSONs of Ballyreagan, Parish of Dundonald, Co. Down. May 17, 2013
JACKSONs in St Peters Drogheda Parish. Although the records span a much larger time frame than my transcriptions might indicate, I transcribed every JACKSON that I could find in Vol 1, and then cherry picked in Vol 2. There did not seem to be any more JACKSONs where I would have expected to see them. It seems likely that they were part of another Parish by the time of the 2nd volume May 17, 2013
Olivers of Ballycrummy and environs. I have included the will of John OLIVER on this page, as well as photos showing his son Simon Francis OLIVER and some of his family. Soon, I will post a family tree, but I want to run it past the family first. The descendants of Simon Francis OLIVER are all Roman Catholic, while I suspect that the generations preceding John OLIVER were all Protestant and were likely descended from Huguenots. May 16, 2013
Kildare Valuations for JACKSONs and LYNCHs. WARNING: These notes were taken at great speed, and need to be double-checked against the originals. In my haste, I did leave off the identifying dates of the books that the entries were transcribed from. Their use is primarily as a starting point. NOTE: Valuation books contain the revisions of ownership recorded after the Griffiths Valuations which took place in the mid-1850s. May 15, 2013
Probates of Jackson who died in Co. Wicklow. I am getting tantalizingly close to being able to click a number of these people into a family tree. At present, I have a stub of a tree including a number of JACKSONs from Woodfield aka Woodfieldglen in Co. Wicklow. If readers know more, it shouldn't take much to make a larger leap. May 15, 2013
Jacksons of Woodfield and Kiltegan, Co. Wicklow. Much of this tree is based on hunches and scant records. The annotated version is included beneath the outline version, and is worth checking to see the basis on which the link was made. May 15, 2013
I have transcribed, annotated and posted the probates of JACKSONs of Co. Meath. May 13, 2013
I have transcribed, annotated and posted the probates of JACKSONs of Kings Co. and also as a result I have done a significant update of the family tree of the Jacksons of Ballyboy. May 13, 2013
I have worked on the JACKSONs of Kildare probates from the National Archives, and interpolated material from several other sources. As I result, I also updated the outline tree of the JACKSONs of Co. Kildare. There will be revisions for both these pages in the near future as I learn more from data I recently brought home from Ireland. May 12, 2013
I have done a major edit of the the SEXTON-NOBLE Family Tree as well as a page on George Edward NOBLE and his wife Francesa Marion Bertha SEXTON May 11, 2013

Samuel JACKSONs [1631-1706] links to other JACKSON families. This is the first piece of a series that I will write and post over the next month. As I learn more, it will also be revised. The focal point of this piece is the lands in Co Meath mentioned in the 1705 will of Samuel JACKSON (1631-1706). April 22, 2013

1865. A Hint To Irish Landlords In The Shooting Season. It is obvious that the writer is quite biased, but since the tale is told well, it is useful for illustrating a particular perspective. An excellent article to read for another perspective can be found on line: Early 19th Century Disturbances in Creggan Parish. February 23, 2013

1883 June 9. Dundalk Democrat. Obituary of Dr. Samuel GILMORE. I do not know who all the people who attended this funeral are, but I have included what I know. The GILMOREs of Liscalgot and the JACKSONs of Urker were very closely related – with more than one intermarriage tying the two families together over many generations. February 11, 2013

September 8, 1870 I would be interested to learn more about the printer John MATTHEWS. The Peace Preservation Act in Ireland. Tuapeka Times. February 9, 2013
1881 Mar 12 Cullyhanna Land League article. This article mentions several County Armagh men who were both Orangemen and members of the Land League. Of particular interest to me, is the mention of David JACKSON of Urker near Crossmaglen in South Armagh. He was not only my great-great-grandfather, but also the father of Sir Thomas JACKSON, the focal point of my research. February 9, 2013
1902 May 19. This snippet is fascinating for a number of reasons. Firstly, it tells us that when Sir Thomas Jackson left Hong Kong on 1902, he was accompanied by one of his four daughters. His wife had set up house at Chiselhurst years earlier, but we can tell from photos in the 1890s, that his wife and children continued to visit Hong Kong. Secondly, Thomas Jackson shared a deep commitment with Osbert Chadwick, also travelling on the same boat, to solving the question of what caused the plague. They would have collaborated when Jackson served on the Sanitation Board, and would likely have discussed the topic further while on board. February 5, 2013
Minchin Jackson family tree This tree is tantalizingly close to the tree of the Jacksons of Kings Co. I do not yet know whether it will tie in to other trees I have assembled thus far. The senior George JACKSON would have been born in the latter part of the 1600s, although where, I do not know. Keep tuned in. I will update as I learn more. February 1, 2013
1902 May 19 - a 2nd event. This is the second of many farewell events involving Sir Thomas Jackson as he prepared to leave Hong Kong in 1902. The first was held on May 14, 1902. I am hoping for help from others in learning more about the Chinese merchants who were honoring him, and will add to the annotations as I learn more. January 19, 2013
1902 May 19 The Departure of Sir Thomas Jackson from Hong Kong. A banquet held in his honour by the Chinese merchant community. NOTE: I made a significant update to annotations January 11, 2013 and more a week later. December 10, 2012
