Aghnamullen, Co. Monaghan - a map with tables referencing townlands NOTE: This is a large set of tables - possibly slow loading. It is also a work in progress October 22, 2005
Cordevlish "A Map of Cordevlish in the Parish of Aughnamullan, Barony of Cremoran & County of Monaghan belonging to Miss Elizabeth Breakey, surveys in 1781 by Jn Bruster" This map is of particular interest because of its information about the Breakey family conection. Elizabeth Breakey would have been aged 23 at the time of this map, the year of her marriage to Thomas Bradford. Note in the second part, the lands tenanted by John Breakey.
NOTE: This is a slow loading page which I intend to fix when I develop the skills to merge the two scans to create a single map. Until then, please bear with me.

Laragh, Co. Monaghan There are several leases involving the OLIVER family and the townlands of Laragh & Creevy. I expect to put it all together in the next week or so and then to add a link for the explanations.It may also be that it will be another bit of the puzzle that links the JACKSONs of Urcher with the JACKSONs of Ballybay. This has long been a mystery. December 9, 2006

1860 March 15 Mary JACKSON of Rockmount, Co. Monaghan Probate. A close read of this will reveals connections between several JACKSONs, who resided in the counties of Antrim, Monaghan & Armagh. Many emigrated to Australia. The testator, Mary JACKSON (?-1860) of Rockmount, was a daughter of a John JACKSON of Banbridge. He in turn was likely connected to and possibly even a son of Rev. Robert JACKSON (b. bef 1750-1788) minister at 1st Dunmurry Presbyterian Church (Dunmurry, Parish Drumbeg (Antrim portion), in the Barony Belfast Upper who in turn was the son of Rev. Henry JACKSON (b. bef 1717-1795), minister 1st Presbyterian/Arian church, Banbridge. More work is needed. They can be found at: JACKSONs of Co. Down who first settled in Dundonald (a page which needs updating).
