[2] George HART Esq. , City of Dublin. NOTE: I have done no work on the HART line, although there is a George HART (1684-1758) who is likely connected to this one.

[3] David Latouche jr.Esq. of Dublin, eldest son of Rt. Hon David LaTouche, Governor of Co. Carlow & Col of the Carlow regiment. SOURCE: Gentleman and Citizen’s Almanac. John Watson.

·        The La Touche family owned extensive estates in Kildare and Wicklow as well as property interests in Dublin City. They had houses at Harristown, county Kildare and Bellevue, Delgany, county Wicklow. McParlan records that in 1802 David LaTouche and his brothers were non-resident proprietors in county Leitrim. In 1856 Francis La Touche was leasing Drumhierny Lodge from William La Touche. He was a member of the Grand Jury for Leitrim in 1851. At the same time John & Peter La Touche were listed as the lessors of several townlands in the parishes of Cloone & Drumreilly, barony of Mohill. William La Touche was the lessor of several townlands in the parish of Rossinver, barony of Rosclogher in 1856. Between them members of the La Touche family owned amost 12,000 acres in county Leitrim in the 1870s. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Messrs Latouch held land in the parishes of Kilmoylan, barony of Shanid and Athneasy, barony of Coshlea, county Limerick. Robert Latouch was the proprietor of the lands in the parish of Athneasy circa 1840. In the mid 19th century members of the La Touche family held land in the county Cork parishes of Drumtarriff and Kilshannig, barony of Duhallow and Peter David La Touche held six townlands in the parish of Courney, barony of Ikerrin, county Tipperary, much of it let to William Mason. John La Touche held land in the county Tipperary baronies of Slievardagh, Eliogarty and Upper Ormond, most of his land was in the parish of Buolick. Peter La Touche of Dublin owned 905 acres in county Cork and William La Touche of Dublin owned 679 acres in the same county in the 1870s while William R. La Touche and David C. La Touche both of Bray, county Wicklow owned 1,347 acres and 289 acres respectively in county Tipperary. http://landedestates.nuigalway.ie:8080/LandedEstates/jsp/estate-show.jsp?id=448

[4] Henry HART (?-1763), Alderman of City of Dublin, father of George HART. NOTE: I have done no work on the HART line, although there is a George HART (1684-1758) who is likely connected to this one. Also, a previous Henry HART (?-1712) married Anne BERESFORD, who was tied into the JACKSON family mentioned in this deed, so there is likely a relationship.

[5] William JACKSON (1690-1744), son of William JACKSON and Elizabeth GORGES. He married Frances EYRE of Eyercourt, and had five children. Two sons, John & Coningsby and predeceased him.
