This is my first stab at making sense of the many Coleraine JACKSONs by using information in deeds. In the process, I uncovered several errors in my initial notes which are posted on my web site. Correcting them means totally redoing the tables, so I will update those as soon as I can get to it. Please let me know if you have anything to add or correct. PS: One helpful tool that helped to prevent me becoming utterly lost was the article by Bill Macaffe: Map of the Baronies and Civil Parishes of Co. Londonderry.

PS I have highlighed a few cells in red because I plan to order photocopies of those deeds to get a complete list of townlands involved. The colour coding is a reminder to myself as much as anything. I apologize for all the repetition in my annotations, but it is done to help not only me, but also search engines to find them. This is especially important when townland names have so many variant spellings.
Updated July 17, 2016. Thanks to new townland name suggestions by Linda Gilmore.

 

Coleraine Deeds – with a focus on JACKSONs in the 1700s & early 1800s.

SEE ALSO:

On my recent 2016 trip, I had only one spur-of-the-moment day available to explore Coleraine.
I was hoping to find the parking lot where Jackson Hall had once been, or least to score a photo which I could use in this post. No such joy. Unfortunately, all the Museum staff were out and about, preparing for some big event. Instead, I took a picture of a family grave site at Killowen Church, as well as a photo of the iconic Coleraine salmon - just to remind myself that even though I may drop a line in the water, and not hook anything, the fish is still out there waiting for me.

William JACKSON  residing at Coleraine, Co Londonderry exor of Henry BROWNE, whose son William BROWNE was raising £400 mortgage with Robert BACON on 90a profitable land & 253a 2r 26p unprofitable land, Liberties of Coleraine. Lease & Release Sworn 5 Jan 1711. NOTE: He may be Capt William JACKSON (abt 1666-1712). Although he died before the registration of this deed, this memorial was reciting a 1711 deed. His son, William b 1695, would be too young to be an executor. SEE: Jacksons of Coleraine Tree.  It is also possible that he was an ancestor of the JACKSONs who became butchers in Coleraine.

James JACKSON of City of Dublin, Gent & James BANKHEAD of Coleraine, Co. Londonderry Merchant of the other part. James JACKSON let to James BANKHEAD 11/6 part of freehold called Clanlary [Thanks to Linda Gilmore, I now know that Clanlary =Glenleary], Parish of Camassmacasque, [Camus Macosquin Glebe is a townland in the Parish of Macosquin] Co. Londonderry. WITNESS: Benjamin JOHNSON, Clerk & Edward DALTON, Notary. NOTE: Because of other JACKSON holdings in the parish of Macosquin (ie 45822), I suspect he is related to Richard JACKSON (abt 1722-1787).  There was also a James JACKSON included in the lists of soldiers (or their representatives) who settled in 1665 in Parish of Billy, Baroney Carey, Co. Antrim. Also in Co, Antrim in this category were John JACKSON and James JACKSON who settled in the Parish of Dunnaghy, Barony Kilconway. They need to be kept in mind.

NOTE: William JACKSON (1695-1744), husband of Frances EYRE, and son of Capt. William JACKSON and Elizabeth GORGES. Redd Castle aka Red Castle is in the Parish of Moville Upper, and I believe in the townland of Clare. It is on the western shore of Lough Foyle, abt 25 miles of Londonderry. It is across the Lough from the other Jackson holdings in Coleraine and Londonderry. The Co. Donegal townlands listed here are all in the Barony of Inishowen [aka Eneshowen]:

Shrove aka Stroove, Parish Movilla Lower;

Karatravnan aka Carrowtrasna (it is on the western border of Stroove), Parish of Movilla Lower;

Cerehew aka Carrowhugh (it is on the western border of Carrowtrasna), Parish Movilla Lower; 

Ballymacarter aka Ballymacarthur, Parish Movilla Lower; 

Ballyechan aka Balleeghan is on the western border of Ballymacarthur; Fardrum aka Tardrum? Tardrum Cottages are about a km northeast of Greencastle; and the

BALL-JACKSON (NOTE: In 2016, I ordered a photocopy of this Memorial in the hopes of seeing actual signatures so I could perhaps tell one Thomas JACKSON in Dublin from another. Unfortunately, Thomas JACKSON’s signature was not on the document.)

A memorial of indented Deeds of Lease and Release bearing date Respectively the thirtieth and thirty first day of December: one thousand seven hundred and twenty six made and perfected between John BALL of Loghross, Co. Armagh, Esq. of 1st part & Thomas JACKSON of City of Dublin Esq. Of the other part. By which said deed and release the said John BALL for the consideration therein mentioned Did give grant bargain sell, Release & Confirm to Thomas JACKSON in his actual possession by virtue of the said lease all that tate of the old Castle of Creckstown & 106A 1R 34P of the land thereunto adjoining in the Barony of Ratbath, Co. Meath inders Rents Issues and Profitts of the same. To have and to hold the said premises with the appurtenances the said Thomas Jackson  and his heirs yielding and paying  therefore and thereout unto the said John BALL his heirs and issue for ever the yearly rent of five shillings sterling per acre for every of the said acres and after that rate for the said one Rod and thirty four perches in half yearly payment viz on every first day of May and November the first payment to be made on the First Day of May next ensuing the Date of  the said Deed of Release. Which said Deeds of Lease and Release were duly perfected on the said thirtieth and thirty first Days of December one thousand seven hundred and twenty six. . WITNESS: William CHURCH of Coleraine, Co. Londonderry, Gent; John DOWNING of City of Dublin, Gent; Henry ARKWRIGHT, City of Dublin.

NOTE: Lieut. Thomas Ball, of Fleetwood's Regt., the father of John BALL, received grants of land in several counties of Ireland, which were confirmed under the Act of Settlement. In Crickstown, barony of Ratoath, he received "a mansion house, orchard, garden, and groves,''. They were same BALL family with leases at Urker and elsewhere in Creggan Parish. Thomas JACKSON (1680-1751) was a son of William JACKSON and Susan BERESFORD, both of Coleraine. I suspect that this John DOWNING was John DOWNING (1700-1785), son of Adam DOWNING and Ann JACKSON, daughter of John JACKSON (1630-aft 1688) This John JACKSON was an uncle of Thomas JACKSON (1680-1751). Henry ARKRIGHT is mentioned in a number of JACKSON deeds, and is likely a lawyer. In a book, Between the Tides: Shipwrecks of the Irish Coast, he is referred to as a Collector in 1703. He was a Collector of Revenue for Galway in 1709.

Londonderry: Parish of Desertmartin, Barony of Loughinsholin; Parish of Kildolagh, Barony of NE Liberties of Coleraine; Parish of Macosquin, Barony of Coleraine; Parish of Tamlaght Finlagan, Barony Keenaght – my best guess is that this Drommore is in the Parish of Macosquin, Barony of Coleraine because in documents at PRONI, the land called Moytullagh was mentioned in the Barony of Coleraine. SEE: PRONI LPC/1428 & LPC/1429. NOTE: This is the Richard JACKSON (1673-1730), husband of Elizabeth BOYD, and son of William JACKSON and Susan BERESFORD.

NOTE: The CLARK and JACKSON families of Maghera were closely affiliated, and likely related. They still remain a mystery to me. Assuming that the name Adam did not come out of thin air, it may be pertinent that in Deed # 6033 , there is an Adam JACKSON, a weaver of Pimlicoe in the Liberty of Thomas Court and Donore Co. Dublin in 1714 (a time and place where there was a concentration of JACKSONs in the linen trade). I am also curious about the JACKSON-ASH connections and a possible link to Coleraine. A 1738 Map shows a William ASH on Pump Street (alias Church Street) in Londonderry. One possible connection to the Coleraine JACKSONs is because of a marriage btw  a Sarah ASH and a William JACKSON.

NOTE: Dorothy JACKSON (1696-1780) was wife of John BALL. Jane JACKSON may have been a 2nd wife of Thomas JACKSON (1680-1751) of Coleraine and Creekstown (The current tree has Margaret BERESFORD as a wife). Ann COCKYN als JACKSON was likely the mother of Thomas JACKSON COCKIN, son of Rev. Ralph COCKYN. SEE: ROD: 308-633-208372, 1776 Jun 3. She was a daughter of Thomas JACKSON (1680-1751) [ ROD 217-547-146565]. The JACKSON-COCKYN connection intrigues me because of the mystery of the ancestry of the Rev. William JACKSON (1737-1795) born in Newtownards, Co Down, who was a United Irishman betrayed by a John COCKAYNE. There may or may not be a familial connection.

Armagh, and a significant number of  circumstantial facts leads me to believe that his line comes from Coleraine. I cannot be sure which Richard JACKSON this might be. He might be the Richard JACKSON butcher, or he could be one of the wealthy JACKSONs who trace back to Kirkby Lonsdale, Westmorland.

NOTE: I do not know if there is a connection btw Maxwell KING and the Mary KING who married James Jackson BIRCH (1740-18210), but since his grandmother was a Mary JACKSON, wife to James BIRCH (?-1727), a connection is possible since we do not know where she came from. It is also possible that this was merely a business transaction. As for the two Richard JACKSONs, they were 1st cousins, once removed:
