This is my first crack at this particular JACKSON tree, so I expect it will be improved in the future thanks to the kindness of friends and strangers (and the magic of all those who connect through the ether). Please let me know if you encounter errors or have other sources that are new to me.

Jacksons connected to Santry

NOTE: Santry is in Dublin. (4 miles to the north). Clonsagh aka Clonshagh is nearby. The first record we have is that of a Rev. Daniel JACKSON who died in 1707 as well as the names of various of his siblings (thanks to his will).

There may or may not be a connection between these JACKSONs and those of George JACKSON (1718-1782) of Urker, Parish of Creggan, Co. Armagh.There are a few facts that prick up me ears:

  • So far the Daniel and Sarah JACKSON of Antrim who were granted use of land in the Parish of Creggan, Co. Armagh in the post-Cromwellian grants are not connected into any otherJACKSON tree that I know of – although my suspicions are that they will turn out to be connected to the Coleraine line of JACKSONs who descended from Richard JACKSON of Kirby, Lonsdale, Co. Westmorland (with some children born over the border in Yorkshire). It is also possibly significant that BALL was the landlord of George JACKSON (1718-1782) of Liscalgot & Urker, Parish of Creggan.
    • Tullyvallen, Parish of Creggan was granted to Thomas BALL for the use of Daniel & Sarah JACKSON. SOURCE: The Irish and Anglo-Irish Landed Gentry, When Cromwell came to Ireland. John O’Hart. 1887.
  • There is a line of JACKSONs in Co. Carlow have a story of a WALKER-JACKSON connection. A sister of Rev. George Walker of siege of Derry fame married into the Carlow branch of the Jackson family. She called herself Walker - Jackson, and rumour has it that Walker was added as a second name to family members In this tree beneath, a Mary JACKSON is married to an unnamed WALKER, likely sometime between 1660-1690. Since families often intermarried more than once (couldn’t get enough of a good thing!), there is a distinct possibility that the Carlow families are connected to this one. Inga JACKSON has documented the more contemporary branches of this tree, but the earlier parts are still in the land of speculation.
  • William WALKER married the Mary JACKSON who was a sister of Daniel JACKSON? The Rev. George WALKER of Co. Derry fame was born about 1645 and died July 1, 1690 at the Battle of the Boyne. His father, Rev. George WALKER[1] is in the right generation to be connected in some way to this WALKER-JACKSON link. He was Rector of Badoney and Cappa [aka Cappagh]. He fled the country during the rebellion. One reason that I find this interesting is because the oral history of my line of JACKSONs is that they came over in Elizabethan times, left and then came back in Cromwellian times. Perhaps the WALKERs and the JACKSONs came and fled together.

Sch, 1617, B.A. 1621, M.A. 1624, is described a " Doctor " on his tomb. He was R. Badoney and Cappagh 1636-60, fled to the Continent during the Rebellion. At the Restoration in a Petition he states " that a long time before the rebellion he was instituted and lawfully inducted to the Rectories of Bodony and Cappa . . .  and was dispossessed at the Rebellion and since which time he bath been driven to many straits to preserve himself and his family abroad . . .  He petitions for his livings " and for the value of them." He was restored to his livings, Oct. 25 1660, but nothing was said about the money. (Seymour's Comvu. Mss. p. 154).  He was R. Donoughmore, Desertlyn and Erriglekeerogue 1662-74, evidently having res. his Derry Rectories. He was also Chanc. of Armagh 1664-77.  Abp. Vesey in his Life of Bramhall, says " my reverend unckle, Dr. George Walker, an intimate of the Primate and very useful to his Grace in many offices."  In the tablet in Dighton Church, Suffolk, to the memory of his wife, Ursula (dau. of Sir John Stanhope, who d. Aug. 17, 1654) he is called "Archdeacon of Dun (sic.) " which cannot be correct.
He was father of Rev. George W. the " Defender of Derry," and d. Sep. 15, 1677 and was bur. at Kilmore, Co. Armagh (see Armagh Clergy, p. 38). In the Halliday Collection R.I.A. is a Pamphlet by Rev.

  • Of the Parishes of Santry and Cloghran, County Dublin, In 1756, the present parish Schoolhouse was erected. A stone over the entrance bears the following inscription :   This School House was Built in pursuance   of the Will of the Revd. DANIEL JACKSON of   Clanshagh, formerly VICAR of SANTRY, who left   a considerable part of a moderate Fortune   for the support thereof.   This Building was begun & furnish'd, by the   Revd. JOHN JACKSON of CLONSHAGH, GRANDSON   to the said Testator, A.D. 1756.   The Grateful Parishioners have caus'd this   Stone to be fix'd here in remembrance of t  heir Charitable & worthy Benefactor. SOURCE: Antiquarian Notes Etc. Of the Parishes of Santry and Cloghran, County Dublin.    Also: Gerry Cooley local historian has indeed confirmed that this was the location. The [Santry] school was built in 1759 by the Rev Daniel Jackson, it closed in 1928. The building was demolished about 10 years ago, it went onto to be a private house called Burnside. There is a Plaque from the School Building itself set into the wall at the new houses at Burnside  ., SOURCE: Antiquarian Notes Etc.
  • Of the Parishes of Santry and Cloghran, County Dublin, A monumental brass, now, alas! so rare in our churches, to the memory of Rev. Henry Brereton, A.M., Vicar of this parish, is on the north wall of the chancel. The upper part contains his family arms, " ar. two bars sa." surmounted by an Esquire's helmet and crest, " a Bear's Head, erased, sa: muzzled ar." To the right is engraved a skull, on a book, clasped; to the back, an hour-glass, and a light-house on a rock, representing " deceased man having finished his portion of time, looks forward to Faith, founded on a Rock." Beneath is the inscription [see Plate]. This brass owes its preservation to its having been inserted in a panel of a mural monument erected to the memory of his son-in-law and his family ; and which bears the following inscription :?
