These are my rough research notes for the townland of Urker. They are based on Griffiths and the subsequent Valuation Records. I have also appended information from the 1901 and 1911 census, and as well as facts from other sources. My purpose is to get a snapshot of the neighbours of the JACKSONs of Urker in the mid to late 1800s. It is also to help other researchers whose families may have been amongst those neighbours. As always, it is to learn more.

We know from letters and oral history that Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915), whose family had been at Urker since the mid-1700s, had a deep and abiding affection for the local families who he grew up with. Had his wife been amenable to living at Urker, he would have retired there. Although he ended his life as a wealthy baronet, he had been born in a two room bungalow, as were many of his neighbours. His sense of connection to the land and the people was such that he gave money to at least one of the sons of his old childhood friends to build a new house. This is where the oral history and the Valuation Records fit together in ways that help us to learn more.

Lessors in Urker in Griffiths and Valuation Revisions

 

Urker Townland

WIth the exception of one small parcel, the entire townand was owned by Thomas Prideaux Ball, and then after his death,most of it was owned by his representatives. The erarliest record of his family's ownership that I have is of Thomas BALL in 1656. For more historical background, see a blog post I did: The Tale of a Townland.
The numbers on my hand-drawn (amateur) map come from the numbers in the Ordnance Survey which were part of the Griffiths Valuation, printed in 1864. I have included the changes in ownership from the Valuation Revision books available online from PRONI. If you spot errors, please let me know.

 

  • NOTE: Some of the changes in ownership were hard to decipher. For anyone who needs absolute accuracy, I suggest double checking with the Valuation Revision books.
  • NOTE: Both the ROWLANDs and LARGEYs also either lived or leased land in Tullyvallen, as did JACKSONs. I am tracking other such connections with the JACKSONs as well as to the JOHNSTONs. My hunch is that the JACKSONs of Urker – who go back to the mid-1700s – started at Tullyvallen in the late 1600s.

We will build you a house at the cross-roads and we will call it “John’s Rock”. The rent was agreed at a penny per week. He there and then went to see Keenans, builders, gave them the contract and the house was ready in a year. In 1901, John HEARTY lived at Urker in a house owned by Eliza JACKSON.

Census Records: NOTE: Religious affiliations, which sometimes shifted, are helpful in understanding other aspects of the community. It is worth noting that of the 20 households, 13 of the household heads were Roman Catholic, 6 were Church of Ireland, 1 was Presbyterian. I only noted birth places for residents if they were other than Co. Armagh. I have also recorded literacy in English and a knowledge of Irish. With elderly residents, I would caution against taking indications of illiteracy too seriously. Some may have had age-related sight issues. Also, I would not be surprised if there were more Protestants fluent in Irish than were noted in the census. For example, my grandmother Jeannie E. Browne was proud of her Irish fluency, but the 1901 census did not record this.

CoI

William Richard CORR, age 49. Solicitor, bachelor. NOTE: Susan Elizabeth DONALDSON née CORR (1847-1920) organized local lace-makers and was their agent. At the time of this Census (which was long after the death of her husband, John DONALDSON), she was living at Blackrock Town, Co. Louth, but by 1911 had moved back to Urker – possibly because her bachelor brother William Richard CORR was ill, He died at Urker in 1911 and left her and her daughter £1,500 as well as £30 to Mary NUGENT his servant (was she born a DUFFY?). I do not know about the relationship – if any – between the two CORR families (one CoI, and one Catholic – see beneath). John DONALDSON (d 1876), the husband of Susan Elizabeth CORR was of Cloghoge, and the Catholic CORRs relocated there by 1911. NOTE: The Will of Hugh Corr late of Kilcorran County Monaghan Farmer who died 26 March 1892 at same place was proved at Armagh by Francis Johnston of Kilroosky County Fermanagh Farmer one of the Executors. His son Hugh CORR of Crossmaglen was an executor.

 

Mary DUFFY (age 15) b. Co. Louth General servant, domestic. NOTE: She is likely related to other DUFFYs residing at Urker who were born in Co. Louth.
