1854 JACKSONS in Griffiths in Dublin – sorted by Parish. This can be a useful tool when used in conjunction with memorials of deeds relating to these people and places. The listings that were recorded under Dublin "City" follow the listings of the lessors of Dublin "County".My primary source was Griffith's Valuations.  
Jacksons mentioned in Dublin Deeds. There is a lot more work to be done with these deeds, but I would encourage others who have an interest in this to follow the names of specific properties, for example "Dolfins Barn" or specific occupations, for example "tanner". These will help you to link to many lines of JACKSONs that are customarily linked to other counties. Jacksons who made their living as tanners -or cordwainers, or shoemakers - were active in this time frame in Co. Down, Monaghan, Kildare, Meath, Armagh, Antrim and Drogheda. I have included all deeds where the JACKSON person referenced is "of Dublin" or else, the property that they held was in Dublin even though they may have been resident elsewhere.

Young's Castle, Oxmantown, City of Dublin. Young Castell aka Young’s Castle was located on the east side of Old Church Street near the intersection of Kings Street. The castle itself was destroyed sometime between 1669 and 1690. Whether it was rebuilt after 1690, or whether the subsequent references in leases are merely to the land it stood on, I am unsure. At least by 1721, there were dwellings and a stable on some potion of the land. Given the status of the resident, Richard JACKSON (1673-1730), they would have been of good quality. January 1, 2019
Dublin Memorials of Deeds - 1708-1725. This is a long document - some 270 plus pages. My main focus is on the memorials with JACKSON family links. For some of my notes, I am deeply indebted to the volunteer transcribers who upload their notes to Nick Reddan's Deeds Index Project. NOTE: These notes will be added to as I do more work in this area. July 24, 2018
Leases of land in Dublin with known connections to JACKSONs of Coleraine. The earliest memorials of leases of land in Dublin connected to the JACKSONs of Coleraine involved Samuel JACKSON (1641-1706). He was related to most if not all of the JACKSONs mentioned in the leases in the table beneath. Bit by bit, I am entering this data into my Rootsweb version of the family tree. August 27, 2016
Robert Jackson of Crooked Staff, Dublin 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. Jacksons who made their living as tanners -or cordwainers, or shoemakers - were active in this time frame in Co. Down, Monaghan, Kildare, Meath, Armagh, Antrim and Drogheda. Updated: August 19, 2018
JACKSONs recorded in Dublin Probates. I will be adding to the notes on the people in these probates, but decided to post what I have in case others can also help out here in the meantime. My hope is to eventually have all them connected into known JACKSON lines. June 5, 2013
Jacksons in St. Catherine's Parish, Dublin. This is useful for tracking a number of the weaver, tanner, and other merchant families in this parish. Updated: August 19, 2016
Jacksons in St. Peters Church Dublin. I have made a start at interpolating other known facts. Where possible, I have included a link to a known family tree. In future, correlating this data with deeds research will likely be productive. July 10, 2013
Jackson Marriages in Dublin records. It has been and will continue to be a huge project to track all these people down. Because of other commitments, I must set it aside for a while. Still, I thought it worthwhile to post in its incomplete form since there is already lots of useful material. I am hoping that others can take the bits that I haven’t done, and let me know if they have information to add. I will update this page as time permits. September 24, 2013

JACKSONs at Trinity College, Dublin I have sorted the material by date.  This is my first stab at documenting who is who. I am hopeful that others will contribute and then we can find homes for all of these JACKSONs. Updated

JACKSONs in 1600s Parish Registers in Dublin After bashing my head on many brick walls, I have decided to start looking at as many JACKSONs as I can find in Ireland in the 1600s. My reasons are self serving. I know that my particular JACKSONs came over to Ireland in that century, although which particular batch they belonged to, I haven't a clue. Most of these JACKSON records included beneath will be ruled out as significant to me in the long run, but may be significant for others. Many of them may have been mainly in Antrim or Down or Carlow or goodness knows where else – but they still had links to Dublin as well. October 26, 2010
JACKSONs of St. Nicholas Parish, Dublin I will revisit this page early in the new year. NOTE: There a number of conections to the JACKSONs of St. Catherine's Parish. Updated October 26, 2010

JACKSONs of St Andrews Parish, Dublin I will revisit this page early in the new year. For now, this is as far as I can take it. October 26, 2010
JACKSONs of St. Audoens Parish, Dublin The number of JACKSONs in this parish with military connections intrigues me. I have much to learn here and will get back to this material early in the new year. October 26, 2010
JACKSONs of St. Brides Parish, Dublin The JACKSONs in this parish seem to be primarily trades people. I have more to learn and will get back to this page in the new year. October 26, 2010
JACKSONs of St. Catherines Parish, Dublin I have done more work on the JACKSONs of this Parish than I have been able to for the pages relating to other parishes. Updated August 18, 2016
JACKSONs of St. Michans Parish, DublinThis parish intrigues me because of its connection to the JACKSONs who were involved in the United Irishmen. It may very well be that these JACKSONS were also related to some of the earlier JACKSONs mentioned in the Parish Register. Most of the data on this page, albeit not all of it, came from Irish Church records at Irish Genealogy The Irish government truly deserves to be thanked for their support of this intiative.

JACKSONs of St. John's Parish, Dublin Like many of the other pages of parish churches in Dublin, I have a great deal more work to do - but it will have to wait until the new year. October 26, 2010
Jacksons in St. Peters Church Dublin. I have made a start at interpolating other known facts. Where possible, I have included a link to a known family tree. In future, correlating this data with deeds research will likely be productive. July 10, 2013
Jacksons in St. Mary's Church of Ireland, Dublin. I am trying to situate these JACKSONs in various family trees in order to determine the extent to which they may or may not be related. As I learn more, I will update this page. June 16, 2013

Benthams Abstracts. My focus here has been on JACKSONs, with a few strays caught up in my net because they belong to collateral family trees that interest me.  I have cross referenced these entries with family trees, deeds etc. Updated January 15, 2019
Jacksons of Kings St near Stephen's Green. Samuel JACKSON died January 19, 1706. [See 1705 Will] Nine months after his death, Richard JACKSON, his nephew, assigned two pieces of land on King St. near St. Stephen's Park to Joseph WORTHINGTON. One lease included a house on Kings St, and the other included a Waste piece of ground leading from Love Lane to Kings St. In 1699, an earlier deed involving Samuel JACKSON had also referenced land here on Kings St.
Samuel JACKSON had also built a Stable here sometime between 1699 and 1706. After the death of his nephew Richard JACKSON (1673-1730), the land was then owned by Richard JACKSON (1722-1787) of Forkhill, Co. Armagh, a grand-nephew of Samuel JACKSON (1641-1706)

Jacksons of Co. Longford, Dublin & Kings Co. A blog post on my blog site. The starting point for the Co. Longfort Jacksons comes from Benthams Abstracts, where Richard Jackson was described as being of Tinenane, Co. Longford. April 4, 2019
2019 Palace and Dame Street deeds work. These notes were compiled in the hopes of being able to prove where Hyde’s Coffee shop was located and also to follow up on the possibility of others on Dame Street or Palace Street who may have had business and/or family ties to either HYDEs or JACKSON’s.

Descendants of Thomas JACKSON of City of Dublin & Delgany, Co. Wicklow. Thomas JACKSON was a printer based in Dublin, but through his wife, and possibly through other connections, had ties to Co. Wicklow. Three children were born in his first marriage, but we have no records of them – whether they were sons or daughters, not how long they lived. I suspect that one of them may have been named Thomas because in his second marriage, none of his sons were given his forename. Given usual naming patterns, this would have been unusual. Baptismal records of Delgany were key in identifying the children of his 2nd marriage. At present, I do not know his ancestry, although the presence of Zachariah JACKSON in the printing trade in Dublin in the same time (and on some of the same streets) raises the possibility that they were related. So far, I cannot trace the ancestry of Zachariah JACKSON. Several Quaker JACKSONs – including Robert JACKSON[1] (1748-1793) and his sister Rachel Maria JACKSON[2] ( 1755-1836) - played a significant role in printing in Dublin in this era, although this Thomas JACKSON does not appear to be a Quaker, nor does Zachariah JACKSON.

Dublin Directory 1647-1708. Because these dates predate the start of the Deeds Registry (1708), these are useful for tracking those who followed in the next generation. The JACKSON-JONES link may also be a clue worth pursuing. February 22, 2021
Ancient Freemen of Dublinsorted by date. I will add more NOTES as I learn more. Connections to the JACKSONs named in the London Rolls is likely.SEE: JACKSONs in the London Rolls February 22, 2021
JACKSONs mentioned in various editions of the Gentleman and Citizen’s Almanac - with my idiosyncratic notes – all for purposes of easy reference when researching JACKSONs. My focus was on the legal and clerical appointments. June 25, 2021
JACKSONs of North Strand City of Dublin.These 28 deeds involve a Richard JACKSON and leases or mortgages for lands at the Strand or North Strand. I know nothing about him, nor who his family might have been. Once I can get a copy of at least one of the memorials and see his signature, that may help me make the link. January 26, 2023
