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).

  • Samuel JACKSON (1641-1706) held leases for properties near another King Street in Oxmantown, suburbs of City of Dublin. These two streets are easily confused.
  • A James JACKSON also held land in both Oxmantown as well as adjacent to Stephens Green and Dawson Street. I do not know if he was related to Samuel JACKSON.
  • Jane CUFFE wife of George JACKSON held leases to land on the south side of Stephens Green, likely on Leeson.George JACKSON is unlikely to be related.
  • NOTE: The notes taken by Paterson and Groves on the 1705 Will may have been in error - they showed these leases going to Rev. John JACKSON of Skipton. He inherited other lands.
