Thomas Tuckey:  Seal


Registered 18 Sept 1777

[1] James HAMILTON, Right Honorable Earl of Clanbrassill. SEE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Hamilton,_2nd_Earl_of_Clanbrassil

[2] Thomas TUCKEY, City of Dublin, Currier.

[3] William HUNT of Chamber Street, City of Dublin, Clothier.He was a brother of Ann HUNT, and died unmarried and intestate.

[4] Anne JACKSON, widow of William JACKSON made over lands of Raheny in this agreement. In deed 321-437-217181, she is living at Chambers Street.  Her husband had left her £1,500. According to deed 330-175-221120 , it seems that she then married a Thomas NORRIS, a tanner. She & William JACKSON married in 1739, and she was born Anne HUNT, daughter of John HUNT, late of Dublin, a clothier. SEE: Deed: 93-560-66911.

[5] William JACKSON, late of Mill Street, in the Liberty of Thomas Court & Donore, Co. Dublin, Tanner, deceased abt 1772. It is perhaps significant that there was an earlier William JACKSON who was a tanner in Dublin. He married Alice DAWSON Nov 9, 1693 at St. Michan’s Church. There were also other JACKSON tanners active in the trade in Dublin, and Robert JACKSON a tanner of Chambre Street is most likely a relation in an earlier generation, possibly even his father. HeIn other deeds, he is referred to as  William JACKSON, tanner of Kilmainhorn, Co. Dublin. I also suspect they were related to JACKSONs of Athy, Kildare.
