There are many threads to follow with respect to linking Dublin-based JACKSONs with JACKSONs in Co. Meath and elsewhere. This Robert JACKSON, a tanner of Dublin is only one of them. Another possibly productive line of inquiry is checking out the tanners named JACKSON in Ireland in the late 1600s. They were active in Co. Down as well as in Drogheda.

This shrub of a tree beneath is based on records at the Registers of St. Catherine's Church, Dublin.

NOTE: It may be nothing more than coincidence, but in 1715, a Henry JACKSON of Lisnaboe, Co. Meath had a lease in Deed:15-44-6704. This was followed by Deed: 15-44-6705 a deed involving Joyce JACKSON. Then, in Deed: 15-411-7967, Joyce is also connected to leases of lands in Co. Meath. I have included notes on these deeds beneath

The smoking gun may lie here where a Robert & Henry are described as brothers:
