7 Dec 1839 Probate of Thomas JACKSON of Lavally Co Sligo



639 Thomas JACKSON[1] of Lavally[2], Co. Sligo. Farmer.

Date of will 16 Jul 1839.

Executor Guy BLEAKLEY[3], Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Gent.


Proved at Prerogative Court 7 Dec 1839 £646.



NOTE: Based on this document, it is possible to see a small branch of a family tree which will likely connect to other JACKSON of Sligo family trees. The connection of the BLEAKLEY family of Enniskillen to James JACKSON of Tiratick is particularly intriguing:

1.      Thomas JACKSON of Lavally, Co. Sligo

a.       George JACKSON d. aft 1839

                                                  i.      Thomas JACKSON d. aft 1839

c.       Anne JACKSON d. aft 1839 + McKIM

d.      Mary JACKSON d. aft 1839

e.       Jane JACKSON d. aft 1839 + CRAIG


Note: The 2nd table should be attached to the left of the 1st table, but that makes it too hard to read.

[6] Drumduff, Parish Killanummery, Barony Drumahaire Co. Leitrim on eastern border of Sligo. Associated with Stonebridge.

[7] Lugdoon, Parish Templeboy, Barony Tireragh, Co. Sligo

[8] Rhunk may be a sub-demonination of Lissananny Beg. The Lands of Runk are mentioned in a lease 27 Oct 1804 from William Harloe PHIBBS to Thomas JACKSON and Robert TRUMBLE of “That part of the Lands of Runk containing 10 acres, or thereabouts for lives of William TRUMBLE, James JACKSON (the present tenant), and John GILMORE, at the yearly rent of £14 late Irish currency. The said James JACKSON is the only surviving life in said Leases. SOURCE: Lot 16 Lissananybeg. [Lissananny Beg, Parish Emlaghfad] Barony Corran] Landed Estate Court 10 Dec. 1876. Inquiries to Owner Major Thomas JONES, Ballina; to Captain Oliver Vaughan JACKSON Carramore, Ballina. NOTE: Although I have not yet noted the 1804 lease, there are many PHIBBS leases noted here which tie the PHIBBS to JACKSONs: Memorials of Sligo Deeds from 1708-1899.         

[9] NOTE: Tiratick is in the ED of Ballintogher East

[10]  I could not find Ballinagreen. One possibility is Ballygrania, Parish Kilross, Barony Tirerrill

[11] Possibly Patch, Parish Kilmacshalgan, Barony Tireragh.

[12] Lavally aka Lavilley, Parish Killerry, Barony Tirerrill],

[13] Abraham MARTIN is the brother of Elizabeth MARTIN who married Francis JACKSON (1769-1834) son of George JACKSON and Jane CUFFE. Elizabeth MARTIN and Thomas JACKSON had a child named George Francis JACKSON. Also of interest when it comes to JACKSONs of Sligo, is James JACKSON (1765-1825, a brother of Francis JACKSON, about whom I know nothing. The MARTIN family were a major merchant family in the Town of Sligo. SEE: JACKSONs of Enniscoe and Carramore, Co. Mayo
