Outside of a few letters regarding legal advice to the family, I know nothing about him beyond Sarah Margaret BROWN's (1886-1963) note that he died "unmarried". It is also possible that he married Rose JOHNSTON, dau of James JOHNSTON. He had been involved in scandalous behaviour with her when he was responsible for the Charter School at Liscalgat and had been dismissed from his post.
Beneath, I have included anything I have researched so far that could tell us more about his connections in Dublin, mostly based on his legal mentions in various publications.
George JACKSON Attorney Dublin
From family correspondence, we know some of his dates and addresses:
NOTE: Great Strand Street may be of interest. SEE: ROD: 652-105-447234. Property owned by a Richard JACKSON.
DUBLIN DIRECTORY 1783 - JUDGES AND BARRISTERS AT LAW WITH THE DATES OF THEIR ADMISSION
Trinity. 1781 George Jackson (My notes say “of Cork?”.
NOTE: In 2007, I took some very fast notes from an 1800 Dublin Almanac – I should have recorded the details. I suspect that there was more than one George JACKSON practising law in Dublin at the time (how inconvenient is that!).
 There was a line of JACKSONs in Cork. Wills were probated for Edward Rowland JACKSON of Castleview (1797), a Margaret JACKSON (1807), a Mary JACKSON (1770) and a Strettle JACKSON of Peterboro (1810). I will be working on the JACKSONs of Cork in the next few months. This line is of interest because after Margaret JACKSON nèe BRADFORD (1739-1820) threw a bunch of family deeds in the fire in outrage over her husband David JACKSON’s (1755-1796 – a brother of George JACKSON) obsession over lost lands, a “man from Cork” showed up with the other half of the deeds that would have bolstered their case. I intend to follow closely the Quaker line of JACKSONs of Youghall, Co. Cork. I suspect that out of all the lines, they are most likely to be connected to our line.
 K- Kings Bench; E= Exchequer; C=Common Pleas.
