Deed of Marriage Settlement

Transcribed by Dawn Lowe. Footnotes by Sharon Oddie Brown


NOTE: The John JACKSON of this deed is one of the JACKSONs of Lisnaboe. Just as interesting to me, are the references to OLIVERs, a family that like the JACKSONs was significant in the linen industry in Co. Monaghan in the late 1700s and early 1800s. A fair bit of the family tree that I have assembled for the OLIVERs in the 1600s and 1700s involves a lot of guess and by golly and may prove to be incorrect. Still and all, I do suspect that the linen-trade OLIVERs of Armagh, Tyrone and Monaghan will turn out to be related. I will need to revisit all this, but for now let me think out loud and share some of the clues that I find intriguing:


·       This deed refers to a 1766 deed between Rev Robert SMITH and Andrew OLIVER of “Leuradown” who was demised part of “Carrickneneeagh” in the Parish of Aughnamullen, Co. Monaghan. There is a deed dated August 5, 1764 that has enough convergences to probably be the same Andrew OLIVER.

·       It would interesting to see if Deed 2-94-299 & Deed 22-443-12533 between James SHIRLEY and SMITH are also connected to these same townlands, and whether there is also any mention of OLIVER in these deeds. NOTE: I have yet to look up these two deeds.

·       In the mid 1700s, a Thomas OLIVER (abt 1741-1826) was living in Aughnamullen. Given the geographic proximity of the BREAKEYs to the OLIVERs (each having half of Carricknaveagh[1]), the choice of Thomas OLIVER’s son’s name “Isaiah” is perhaps telling. Isaiah BREAKY (b abt 1688) was one of the first to settle in Aughnamullen and set up mills.

·       With these clues, it may be appropriate to start thinking of Thomas OLIVER of Aughnamullen as a probable relation of the Andrew OLIVER of this deed.

·       A William OLIVER (1764-1844) owned bleaching Mills, a flax Mill and corn mill in 1829 at Laragh, Parish of Aughnamullen.  It now shows on some maps as Cornalaragh. His father David OLIVER (1725-1806) set the leases for them back in a deed dated June 1, 1766.

·       An Andrew OLIVER (1748- bet 1788-1793) and his wife Elinor DAWSON conveyed lands of Enagh, [would this be parish of Donagh?] Co. Monaghan Sept 7, 1777. They were from Newtownhamilton, although he was probably from Tullymore, Co. Armagh – near the home of the David OLIVER (1725-1806). This Andrew OLIVER had children, who were mentioned but not named in the deed. It is not impossible that he was the father of Thomas OLIVER (abt 1741-1826)

·       Two years earlier on January 25, 1775, the Sherriff made a seizure of land from David OLIVER which had been granted five years earlier in January 6, 1770 to Andrew OLIVER. I have a fair bit of thinking out loud on the pages where these deeds are posted.

·       A townland named Creevey OLIVER is just south of the Laragh where OLIVERs had milling interests in the mid1700s-1800s.

[4] Grover is an obsolete form of groover which mean that he was probably a miner – actually, In the case of John TATLOW Esq, he probably owned mines.
