Deed 489 254 309094
1794 September 27
I do not know whether the dairyman, Francis HUNT, connects to the JACKSON family in any other ways than this lease, nor if the Henry JACKSON mentioned in this this deed is connected to the other JACKSONs mentioned in other JACKSON-HUNT deeds. For some of these other HUNT-JACKSON connections see:

 Francis HUNT, Dairyman of Phoenix Street, Dublin. I do not yet know anything about him.
 Phoenix Street is one block long, and It is a couple of blocks west of, and a continuation of Pill Lane. It is between W. Arron St. & Lincolns Inn. And is two blocks north of Arran Quay. It appears to now be known as: Phoe Street.
 Donald STEWART
 Aston’s Quay is on the southern shore of the Liffey at the end of Sackville (now O’Connell Street).
 Henry JACKSON (1750-1817). The Dublin Directory shows a Henry JACKSON of 87 Pill Lane in 1794. He was also at 160 Church Street and 159 Church Street. He was a key organizer for the United Irishmen, and had to leave the country in 1798. He had to flee Ireland as a result of his political activities, and settled in Baltimore.
 Pill Lane is now known as Chancery Street. At the time, it extended from Boot Lane to Church Street and was in the Parish of Saint Michan, which was Henry JACKSON’s Parish Church, as well as the parish church of many of his fellow coconspirators in the United Irishmen.
 William MOLONY. I do not who he was.
 John JACKSON (1744-1824). I assume this to be the brother of Henry JACKSON – he often seemed to be party to his brother’s business dealings.
 John MOORE, Deputy Registrar.
