Jackson Probates at National Archives KILDARE

Calendars of Wills and Administration 1858-1922

http://www.willcalendars.nationalarchives.ie/search/cwa/index.jsp

 

·       Part of my interest in Co. Kildare is the fact that Sir Thomas JACKSON brought a farm manager, Patrick LYNCH, up from his farm in Co. Kildare. This Patrick LYNCH came from Kill, Co. Kildare. If Sir Thomas had a farm in Kildare, I would still like to know where and why. It intrigues me that there are two probates of JACKSONs from Kill listed beneath.

·       Over the next few months, I will work my way through material gleaned on my last trip, and additions to this page will result.

·       I have only made a small start on the Ballygibbon JACKSONs – of which there are 3 mentions beneath, none of which tie into the currently known family trees.

·       In terms of making sense of early JACKSON connections: COUNTY KILDARE: FONTSTOWN OLD CHURCH - On a tablet just inside SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF JOSEPH JACKSON fourth son of Richard Jackson of this Parish who in his 24th year of his age unfortunately lost his life when bathing on the morning of 12th June 1835.

 In the lone mansion of the sacred tomb

Rests a lov’d friend who perish’d in his bloom,

No time allow’d to wean him from the world,

But in a moment from existence hurled.

Deep. Deep he sunk beneath the dark cold wave,

But not too deep for sovereign Grace to save.

 As a small token of esteem this tablet was sent from America, and caused to be erected by his afflicted brother Thomas Jackson, of New York, Merchant.

It may be that Annefield House is here.

Ones I could not locate with any certainty:

  • Kill Straffan.
  • Broomfield Moone, Co. Kildare.
  • Annefield House: http://www.buildingsofireland.ie/cgi-bin/viewsite.cgi?siteid=1982 In Barony of South Naas.
    National Archives: Letter from James Tandy, Annefield, Kilcullen, County Kildare, chief magistrate of police for counties Carlow, Wicklow, Kildare and Dublin, to William Gregory, Under Secretary, Dublin Castle, concerning 3 vacancies which have arisen in his police establishment, and requesting that government select Protestants for the posts. NOTE: There was an Annefield Lodge in Athy.

DEEDS WORK: This part is especially incomplete, and will have to await my next trip to Ireland. I have a list of prospective deeds that will likely make sense of many of the shorter JACKSON family trees. At this point, many would best be described as shrubs or stubs - not trees.

 

 

·       Jan 7, 1709 is the earliest deed I have for JACKSONs in Co. Kildare. It is for Thomas JACKSON of Dryhett, Barony of Carbery, Co. Kildare. Memorial 13-52-4918. Because of a few things that do not line up, he does not seem to be the initial Thomas JACKSON in the JACKSONs of Kildare Tree. Update: He is more likely to be the Thomas JACKSON who is included in a group of Quaker JACKSONs from Kilbank, Seawaite, Lancashire, England. He had a son Thomas JACKSON born in 1710 in Drehid. Some of these Quaker JACKSONs intermarried with the better known line of Quaker JACKSONs immortalized in Proceedings of the Sesqui-Centennial Gathering of the descendants of Isaac and Ann Jackson at Harmony Grove, 1875, Members of both JACKSON family trees emigrated to America. JACKSONs from the Barony of Carbery show up much later in stubs of trees of the JACKSONs of Ballygibbon.

·       February 3, 1709, Isaac JACKSON, a farmer of Ballitore, for house and land. Memorial: 3-370-1077. NOTE: Ballitore is where the Quakers settled. NOTE: He is included in my Quaker Jackson Tree and was one of those who emigrated to America.

·       July 15, 1709: Daniel JACKSON, a tanner in: Memorial: 2-437-552 . He leased frontage on Market Street of Athy containing 84 feet to the front in the same street eastward and to the river backwards 143 ft. with the 7 acres & 23 perches. Of interest is also the connection of JACKSONs to the trade of tanning in Drogheda, various places in Co. Down & also Dublin.

·       Nov 12, 1718, John JACKSON of Athy leased lands of Currageen cont 630 acres, Barony of Kilkea and Moon, Co. Kildare.. lives of said John JACKSON & Sarah his wife.  Part of why this is intriguing is that a generation later, July 22, 1743 in Memorial 110-363-77934 we see Thomas BUNBURY, son of Rose JACKSON connected to the JACKSONs of Coleraine leasing: town and lands of Moygany otherwise Morgany otherwise Moygna cont. By est 140 acres in Barony of Kilkea and Moone in Co. Kildare

·       Nov 28, 1719, Robert JACKSON of Blackhill, Co. Kildare, brother of John JACKSON and Henry JACKSON, leased lands of Woodtown, Co. Meath. Memorial: 25-145-14415

·       Nov 29, 1722, John JACKSON Farmer of Dug house next to market place at Athy + one other house backside and Garden in Athy bound by holdings of Charles CAVANAGH & Richard ELLIS, all in possession of John JACKSON, to hold for lives of Jacob JACKSON son of John JACKSON; John JACKSON, son of John JACKSON and Sarah JACKSON, wife of John JACKSON  Memorial 34-417-22149

·       By 1722 a Daniel JACKSON is a Maulster of Athy. Memorial: 36-98-21713. Is the same one who was a tanner? Or a son?

·       The tanner connection shows up again in Memorial 43-421-2880 : May 6, 1724 Wm. JAMES of Athy. Co. Kildare, Tanner did demise & set to Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff in Co. Dublin Tanner and Josiah JACKSON of Glassholly [likely Glassely, Barony of Narragh & Reban East - where so many JACKSONs resided] , Co. Kildare Farmer lease of house in Athy from Robert JACKSON to Josiah JACKSON for 22 years

·       By 1729 Blackhill is likely the same place as Blackall, Co. Kildare. See Memorial 60-354-41819. Henry JACKSON is a farmer there (bear in mind this is likely the same one who was a brother of  Robert).

·       Jun 3, 1730 Memorial 64-213-4316 gives some fascinating family connections: Refers to lease 20 Mar 1716 made btw Rev William JACKSON of the one pt & Henry JACKSON Senior of Ofberstown [aka Osberstown] Co Kildare of the other part. Whereby  the said William JACKSON did demise and set unto the said Henry JACKSON senior that part Ofberstown then in the possession of the said Henry JACKSON containing by estimation sixty seven acres or thereabouts more or less with  the appurtenances  To hold during the Natural Lives of him the said Henry JACKSON senior, Henry JACKSON jr. and Anthony JACKSON the latter being sons of the said Henry JACKSONHenry JACKSON jr for £40 assigned to  Robert CAIRNS part of Ofbertstown…WITNESSES: William TOOLE and James GODDARD of Dublin Gent. Part of why this is interesting is because the name Anthony is most often associated with the line of JACKSONs who were Quakers

In the 1901 Census Eliza PEARSON was age 55, living at Castlefarm, Fontstown, Co. Kildare with her husband James PEARSON, two unmarried farmer sons and a married daughter. I suspect she was a daughter of Sarah & Thomas JACKSON. The PEARSON-JACKSON connection goes back a couple of centuries: KILDARE St Michaels Churchyard

Mary JACKSON 23 November 1904 probate. Late of Brewel, Est Colbinstown, Co. Kildare, Widow. D. 23 Mar 1903. Granted at Dublin to Henry Fay, Farmer. Effects £419 NOTE: I suspect she was the widow of House 9 in Brewel East, Usk, Co. Kildare age 65 (hence b1836) in the 1901 Census. She was Roman Catholic, as was her daughter living with her. They were Farmers. Henry C. FAY also lived in Brewel East, was age 30 and married to Mary, who may have been a daughter of Mary JACKSON.

James Jackson

5 May 

1904

Probate 8 July 1904. James JACKSON sr. late of Davidstown House, Kilcullen, Co. Kildare, Farmer. D. May 5, 1904. Granted at Dublin to William JACKSON, Farmer, Harry JACKSON, farmer & Francis R. JACKSON, merchant. Effects £435 9s 7d. NOTE: I suspect that he was the widowed farmer, age 76 of House #1 in Davidson, Ballyshannon, Co. Kildare in the 1901 Census. This James JACKSON lived there with two sons, James JACKSON (age 48) and Joseph JACKSON (age 37) and a daughter Elizabeth JACKSON (age 35). He does not show up in that household in the 1911 census, but his son James JACKSON does as well as the brother Joseph JACKSON and an additional brother Benjamin JACKSON ( age 54). There is also a cousin, Mary Anne HENDY (age 46). They were all unmarried, and she was the housekeeper while they were farmers. I can’t prove it, but they are likely related to the JACKSONs in the Thomas JACKSON of Co. Kildare tree. Interestingly, in a much earlier generation, A James JACKSON married an Elizabeth HENDY. NOTE: There was another James JACKSON in the same townland, but unlike this family who were COI, that family was Baptist.

George Jackson

23 Dec 

1910

George JACKSON. Probate March 13, 1911, late of Kill Straffan, Co. Kildare, Farmer who died December 23, 1910, granted at Dublin to Mary E. JACKSON the widow, and Hannah E.E. REA spinster.

1912

Benjamin JACKSON. Probate Jan 17, 1913, late of Narraghmore, Co. Kildare, Farmer who died November 30, 1912 granted at Dublin to Henry JACKSON and Frederick BYRNE, Farmers. Effects £4,437 19s 10d. Resworn £4,626 16s 10d.

NOTE: If he is the Benjamin JACKSON at Narraghmore in the 1901 and 1911 Census (and there is only one – and he is a farmer), then he was born either in 1832 or 1837 (or some other date) since the ages in the two Census do not agree. In the 1901 Census his wife’s name was Charlotte (misspelled as Charlet). They were married in 1870, and had no children. See her probate beneath in 1916.  A Henry JACKSON (b 1835) is a brother. Both Henry & Benjamin JACKSON are included in the Thomas JACKSON of Co. Kildare tree.

Robert Hall Jackson

16 Aug 

1912

Robert Hall JACKSON probate November 5, 1912, late of Annefield House, Bray, Athy, Co. Kildare, Farmer who died August 16, 1912 granted at Dublin to Edith Caroline Hannah WRIGHT, married Woman.

He is age 61 (hence b. 1840), and a widowed farmer living with his daughter Leonora JACKSON, age 23. They were COI. In the 1911 Census, he is residing with no family. Edith C.H. WRIGHT is recorded in the 1911 Census as the 39 year old wife of Robert WRIGHT living in House #10 Sandymount, Pembrooke East, Dublin. They are Presbyterian and she was born in Co. Kildare. Possibly she was a daughter of Robert Hall & Caroline JACKSON. See above for probate of Caroline JACKSON, d 1896.

Residing with them were daughters Annie (age 17) and Isabella (age 11) and sons Thomas (age 9) and Isaac (age 7), as well as a niece Agnes Moody (age 2). The children were all born in Co. Wicklow, and the niece in Co. Cork. His wife died in 1915 – see notes beneath. [I wonder if he is related to the John JACKSON in the 1718 Deed mentioned above.]

Joseph Jackson

Joseph JACKSON late of Davidstown Kilcullen, Co. Kildare Farmer who died March 14, 1913 at Sea granted to James JACKSON Farmer. Effects £466 2s 10d.

They are also in the 1901 Census.I doubt that this was her since on June 6, 1903, Memorial 1903-47-148 Anne JACKSON widow conveyed to Council.part of townland of Killinagh Lower, Parish of Kilpatrick, Barony of Carbury, Co. Kildare – 2 roods 16 perches.
