Signed and sealed in presence of George Lowther and Gorges E. Howard, City of Dublin, Esq, subscribing witness to an indented Deed of which this is a Memorial. Delivered to Mr Charles[11], Deputy Register 6 Dec 1765

Registered 6 Dec 1765





[1] Richard GORGES (1708-1778) Esq. of Kilbrew, Co. Meath, eldest son of Richard GORGES (1662-1728) and Nichola Sophia HAMILTON

[2] Kilbrew, Co. Meath. There are two such townlands in Co. Meath. I am betting that it is Kilbrew, a townland of 799 acres, Parish of Kilbrew,Barony of Ratoath, Co. Meath.

[3] Elizabeth FIELDING, Daughter of John FIELDING, Governor of Jamaica

[4] Hamilton GORGES (1712-1786), second son of Richard GORGES (1662-1728) and Nichola Sophia HAMILTON. He married Catherine KEATING.

[5] Right Honorable William Lord Baron of Howth aka William St. LAWRENCE (1688-1748). He married Lucy GORGES, daughter of Lt-Gen Richard GORGES (1662-1728) and Nichola Sophia HAMILTON. SOURCE: http://thepeerage.com/p23506.htm#i235057

[6] Thomas JACKSON Esq., of City of Dublin. I suspect that he is the Thomas JACKSON (1680-1750) He was the son of William JACKSON and Susan BERESFORD. In 1715, he married Margaret BERESFORD, and they had three children. In 1727, he held a seat in the Irish House of Commons for Coleraine. His sister-in-law, Elizabeth GORGES (d.1747), who married his older brother, William JACKSON, was of Kilbrew, Co. Meath.

[7] NOTE: I have put them all into a table: 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.

[8] Gorges Edward HOWARD (1715-1786) aka Gorges Edmund HOWARD, son of Frances HOWARD & Elizabeth JACKSON (she was the daughter of William JACKSON (1668-1712) of Coleraine and Elizabeth GORGES).

[9] John SMITH, servant to Richard GORGES.

[10] George LOWTHER Esq, of Kilbew, Co. Meath. NOTE: Although I suspect that he was in a previous generation, a George LOWTHER who married Jane BERESFORD  voted against the JACKSONs and for the BERESFORDs in a dispute. Rev. T.H. Mullin. D.D., Coleraine in by-gone centuries, Century Services, 1976, 173
