This news article enabled me to connect some of the dots in this family – not that I am related to them, but it did shine light on some tangential folk.

  • John JACKSON (?- bef 1862) of Ballynahonebeg, Co. Armagh married Louisa STAMER in 1823. She was a daughter of Sir. William STAMER & Martha RAWLINS.
  • John JACKSON & Louisa STAMER had at least 3 children: John Stamer JACKSON who died in Australia; Robert William JACKSON who died in America; Harriette who married a James STANLEY (1812-1873).
  • On the 20th inst at St. Mary’s Church Newry, by the Rev Daniel Bagot, James second son of John Stanley of Armagh, Esq to Harriette, only daughter of John Jackson Esq. of same place and grand-daughter of the late Sir William Stamer, Bart. BNL Mar 26 1844
  • Their daughter, Louisa Catherine STANLEY married Robert Liddell BROWN, a book-keeper, and they had a son Robert William BROWN born January 15, 1871 in Dublin.

I still do not know which line of JACKSONs this John JACKSON of Ballynahonebeg belonged to. I suspect he had a brother named Robert JACKSON. I also do not know if the John STANLEY who married Catherine Sarah BELL (see my Rootsweb Family Tree) is the same John STANLEY noted in the probates.

[1] Sinnamon NOBLE. The Brass Buddha site has a reference to a Sinnamon NOBLE (1837-1904), a land agent who married Catherine HARPUR. This may be him. National Archives shows he has a sub-grant for lands in Ballynahonebeg. The notice of his marriage is in Limerick records: NOBLE & HARPUR: Aug 18 [1875] by special Licence at Trinity Church Dublin, Sinnamon NOBLE, Lisnafeedy House, Armagh, second son of the late Sinnamon NOBLE, Esq. Moy, to Kate, only daughter of Thomas Henry HARPUR, Esq. Gorestown, Co. Tyrone. NOTE: Sinnamon NOBLE (1799-1841) of Moy was his father. The name Sinnamon is unusual, but likely comes from: 7th February 1792, John NOBLE married Mary SINNAMON of Armagh. Source: St. Marks’s Parish Registers.
