ROD 16 540 12421 December 13, 1718.
NOTE: I had ordered a copy of this memorial in the hopes of seeing the signatures of Thomas JACKSON and hopefully also Richard JACKSON’s signature. I got skunked. Their signatures were not on this Memorial. There is circumstantial evidence that links this property to the holdings of their uncle Samuel JACKSON (1641-1706) In his December 5, 1705 will, he left properties to his nephews William JACKSON – who had died before this deed was registered, and Richard JACKSON.

 Henry ARKRIGHT was a Collector of Dublin. In TGF Paterson notes on the will on the will of William JACKSON (1628-1688) father of Rose JACKSON (1668-1738), ARKRIGHT was described as being of Coleraine.
· He was a subscriber to A Treatise of the Laws of Nature. He was also one of the signatories at the commission signed at Derry on July 12, 1689. SEE: Thomas Witherow’s Derry and Enniskillen in the year 1689.
· He was an executor of Samuel JACKSON’s December 5, 1705 will,
· Also, A Henry ARKWRIGHT was a surveyor-general in the Hanoverian period (ie after 1714). Perhaps he was a son of this Henry ARKRIGHT.

NOTE: Dorothy JACKSON, daughter of John JACKSON, was likely the wife of Henry ARKWRIGHT.
 Thomas JACKSON. There is more than one Thomas JACKSON who may have been a fit here, but the most likely one is Thomas JACKSON (1680-1751).
· His parents were William JACKSON (1628-1688) and Susan BERESFORD (?-1706).
· He married 1stly Margaret BERESFORD in 1715, and then a Jane (last name unknown). He had 3 children with Margaret and 1 with Jane.
· He was a nephew of the Samuel JACKSON who had been an early investor in lands in Oxmantown, Dublin and nearby. Susan BERESFORD had died on the same day as Samuel JACKSON at Samuel’s house on Mary’s Lane, Dublin. Capt.
· William JACKSON (1668-1712), of Coleraine had received several bequests from his uncle Samuel JACKSON’s December 5, 1705 will, but since he is now deceased, it would not be surprising for the bequest to flow to a younger brother, Thomas.
 Proper Lane in Oxmantown.

 Oxmantowne. The area experienced a building boom that Samuel JACKSON (1641-1706) profited from. I do not yet know whether he participated in the initial auction, but he did buy properties in Oxmantown sometime afterwards:
· The latter part of the seventeenth and early eighteenth century was a period of considerable growth for the area. By 1660 Oxmantown became residential with wealthy people living around the Green. In 1664 a highway, Queen Street, and a major cattle market at Smithfield were established. These, coupled with the opening of the Royal Barracks (now Collins Barracks) to the west in 1704 ensured that area was a bustling district throughout the eighteenth century, filled with shops, markets, hotels and traders.

· In 1665, the Corporation of Dublin annexed part of the old Oxmantowne Green, divided the annexed land into lots, and auctioned them off to builders and such. In 1697. St. Paul’s Church was built on King Street.
 NOTE: In the mid-1800s, there was a brewery shown on maps on Beresford St. (aka Proper Lane) on the east side in the middle of the block just north of Mary’s Lane. There was also a brewery noted on Proper Lane in 1729. SOURCE: Dublin 1610-1756. Irish Historic Towns Atlas. No. 19..

 Richard JACKSON. There are a few Richard JACKSONs in this time, place and class, but I suspect he was Richard JACKSON (1673-1730), brother of Thomas JACKSON above.
