Jacksons of Woodfield and Kiltegan, Co. Wicklow. Much of this tree is based on hunches and scant records. The annotated version is included beneath the outline version, and is worth checking to see the basis on which the link was made. May 15, 2013
Probates of Jackson who died in Co. Wicklow. I am getting tantalizingly close to being able to click a number of these people into a family tree. At present, I have a stub of a tree including a number of JACKSONs from Woodfield aka Woodfieldglen in Co. Wicklow. If readers know more, it shouldn't take much to make a larger leap. Updated signficantly. Sept 1, 2021
Leases mentioning Sandymount Co Wicklow. The purpose of this page is to help me to find the ancestors of Rev. William JACKSON (1737-1794) - the famed (or infamous) United Irishman. In the hope of protecting his estate for his wife, he took poison in the hours after his conviction and died in the court before sentencing could be pronounced. His wife was pregnant with their 2nd child and lived in France for the next 20 years.
It has been slim pickings when it comes to readily available evidence about either of them. So far, I have been unable to find a first name for either his father or mother. My starting point was that his mother was a member of the GORE family, and an aunt of his was married to Dr. Edward SALE, a lawyer. I will soon be posting a blog piece on my progress with this mystery.

Co. Wicklow Land Leases 1708-1810: These only include leases in Co. Wicklow that caught my attention because of where they were or the names of the grantor or grantee. August 9, 2019
Co. Wicklow Leases and selected notes. My purpose on this page was to track the leases of GOREs and SALEs and JACKSONs near Mountkennedy and to add notes where useful to my quest to tease out the connections between these families. August 9, 2019
JACKSONs in Delgany Parish Co Wicklow BMD. Thomas JACKSON, husband of Charlotte TUDOR and ancestor of most of these JACKSONs mentioned, had a residence in Dublin. February 7, 2020
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 (1748-1793) and his sister Rachel Maria JACKSON ( 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.
