NAMES: James LECKY of Kilnock, Co. Carlow; Thomas JACKSON, merchant of Dublin; Walter BAGNELL of Parish of St. James, liberty of Westminster; Ralph CRUTCHLY; John WILLIAMS; Robert DENT; William PARRY. OTHER PLACES: Rathcrogue, Co. Carlow.

In the footnotes of this deed I have tucked some rather far fetched bits that may or may not prove to be connected to our JACKSON family line. The most interesting part to me is the fact of a JACKSON in County Carlow leasing land at a time that would fit the family story. Clearly, more work is required.

[1] James LECKY: SOURCE: http://www.ballykealeymanorhotel.com/history.htm Apart from Ballykealey and Kilnock, the family had homes at various periods at Staplestown, where they first settled in county Carlow, the location of a mill run by Robert Lecky; Kilmeany, Rathrush and Newgardens, near Carlow town. In his will of June 1707, Robert left his son John Lecky one gold guinea, and his interest in land at Kilnock; his sons James and John got equal shares in Ballykealey. "To my cousin Alexander Lecky his house and garden and free grazing of six callops of cattle on the land of Conoborough; £3 to the poor ofFriends at Newsgardens Monthly meeting. £20 to the poor people in the neighborhood of Ballykealey. Tomy three daughters, Dorothy, Jean and Rebecca, £600 between them , provided they marry with consent of executors and trustees. My son James to build a dwelling house upon the lands at Rathrush for my wife Mary to dwell in." It was Mary, one of the Quaker Watson family, who persuaded her husband to join the Society of Friends.
