[1] Hugh JACKSON. NOTE: I cannot be totally sure which Hugh JACKSON this is – more work is needed, but given the wording “Estate and interest”. I am leaning to the Hugh JACKSON (1751-1810), son of Hugh JACKSON and Elinor GAULT. Another possible Hugh JACKSON, son of John JACKSON and Sarah BRUNKER was still alive in 1828.

[2] John JACKSON, jr. (1795-?), son of Hugh JACKSON and Sarah BRUNKER. He married firstly Elizabeth TATLOW and 2ndly Alice DARLEY. He died at Athens, near Florence, Alabama, America.

[3] John JACKSON (1744-1824), of Crieve House, a brother of Hugh JACKSON, and husband of Sarah BRUNKER.

[4] Carnaveagh, Parish of Aghnamullen, Barony of Cremorne, Co. Monaghan

[5] Charles MEARES of Dublin
