1659 "Census" of Ireland - JACKSON mentions. This falls short of being a true census since it only notes the tituladoes aka the big landowners of the day. Even so, it does us back to pre-1708, the date when leases were first recorded in the Memorials of Deeds. As a result, it strengthens some of my hunches and takes us further back in time. My footnotes will likely get added to – when I can get to it.

[1] HUNCHES For Londonderry JACKSONs:

·         Timeline of JACKSONs of Coleraine. This page could benefit from an update. November 2022. It is on my to-do list.

·         JACKSONS of Co. Londonderry. This page includes a map and more context.

·         James JACKSON, Robert JACKSON, and John JACKSON of Camus Macosquin Glebe were likely related to the Richard JACKSON of Coleraine. Note continuity of placenames in ROD: 329-368- 219853

o   There are several ROWLEY-JACKSON connections. There may have ben an inter-marriage involving the two families in the Parish of Macosquin.

In the parish of Macosquin, Co. Londonderry: Cornelius WALL of Macosquin, Edward CANNING of Macosquin; Francis HOWARD of Creghan; John ROWLEY of Castleroe [likely the son of Sir Edward ROWLEY of Castleroe who was killed in battle in 1641]; James JACKSON of Ballinteerbeg.

[4] Peter CARY

·         Capt. Peter Cary, (also 'Carew' in the 'Census') a Cromwellian soldier, purchaser of a considerable estate in North East Cork.[29] This last family, of 'Careysville' near Fermoy, claimed to be of Devonshire origin, and died out in the male line in the late 19th century.

[5] Waterford JACKSONs

·         SEE:  JACKSONs of Ahanesk, Co. Cork Photos of ruins at Ahanesk on this page. Starts with John JACKSON (born prob early 1600s) of Ballyduff, Co. Waterford. NOTE: This tree has been superseded by the Jacksons of Waterford & Cork tree. All future updates will be made there. This tree is interesting when looked at in connection with the Jacksons of Glanbeg. In each tree, there is a Mary WALLIS, daughter of Thomas WALLIS who marries a JACKSON. In the Glanbeg tree, it is a Thomas JACKSON and in the Ahanesk tree, it is a George JACKSON. Whether this is a coincidence, or an error in the secondary sources that I used (ie. Burkes), or whether there is a relationship here still to be discovered, I do not as yet know. I have an outline tree here followed by a detailed report.

[8] Kilkenny JACKSONs

·          Portnascully is at the southern tip of Kilkenny where it borders on Co. Waterford. NOTE: This possibly pushes that tree back one generation and also makes it possible that this Corluddy JACKSON family came from Lancashire and/or Westmorland.

·         SEE: JACKSONs of Kilkenny. The land grants to Edmond JACKSON at Corluddy, Portnascully, and Dungooly, all in Co. Kilkenny were key to assembling this Jacksons of Kilkenny family tree. Benthams Abstracts filled in some of the gaps. Was he the Capt. JACKSON who had been dislodged from Co. Antrim? Was he a Royalist, or was he one of those who was caught up in the sweep when the government was transporting all Presbyterians from Antrim & Down in 1653? There is much that I do not know here
