My primary goal here was to note JACKSONs, but I also picked up a few other stray bits that interested me for one reason or another. In articles that have long lists of names, I have sorted them alphabetically – which is not how they were printed in the paper, but it makes it easier to avoid eyeball burn out.

12 Feb 1754

Mrs. JACKSON at Drogheda, widow of counsellor JACKSON late of Creekstown in the County of Meath.

NOTE: Since the Urker JACKSONs had enough of a link to Drogheda that one of them would pay to have the family crest erected on City Hall, this one is worth pursuing. A will for a Thomas JACKSON of Creekstown was probated 3 December 1750. SOURCE: Betham Prerogative Will Extracts to 1800. Ref. T/559/24 Page 173 of Volume 24

1 Jan. 1760

That Jane MOFFATT, the wife of Charles JACKSON, near Middletown in the county of Armagh, about three years ago separated from her husband by mutual consent, and for sufficient reasons; and whereas she hath contracted several debts, the great loss of said Charles; these are therefore to give notice, that he will not pay any debts she may contract for the future, of which the publick are to take notice. Dated this 18th day of December 1759. CHARLES JACKSON

30 Apr. 1762

Mark Jackson committed to jail for being part of the Whiteboys.

NOTE: I think they were near Youghall – I should have noted this.

 

18 May 1762

Wednesday night a terrible robbery was perpetrated at Rockvale near Mallow, the seat of the Rev. Mr. John Oliver, by a number of the Levellers in their white uniforms; people who ascribe to themselves the office of relieving the poor from oppressions, and or redressing public grievances.  Six of the villains entered the house, and confined all the servants in a room (from one of which they took six guineas and some change) while they plundered the house. Mr. Oliver who had been from home on a visit has offered a reward for apprehending the parties concerned. ...

They [the prisoners} were brought on board the revenue barge from Youghal, by Mr. William Jackson, surveyor....

This would have the Ven. John Oliver, Archdeacon of Ardagh and was an attack by the Whiteboys.

6 Mar. 1767

Henry JACKSON Iron Monger (who served his apprenticeship to Mr. Richard Bolton, &c.) Hath opened shop in Pill Lane, opposite Bull Lane, Dublin, where he has laid in a large assortment of Iron Monger’s Ware, for ready Money, which enables him to sell on such terms as must be pleasing to the Buyer. Said Jackson has engaged the only Man now in Dublin capable of smithing large Beams, and has now ready for sale, a good assortment of each Kind, viz, Dutch, English, and Wheel Form; with all sorts of Grocers, Silk and Money Scales, with weights suitable for each, of Iron, Brass & etc. Which

This is the Henry JACKSON (1750-1817) who was charged with treason because of his United Irishmen involvement. I find it intriguing that he is only aged 17 when he opens this shop. This foundry was probably one of the places where his supporters fabricated pike pole heads in the late 1700s to use against government troops.

17 Mar. 1767

This is a puzzling note of a letter from Thomas Jackson expressing “the gratitude and thanks of the Island of Barbados” also “Lord Mayors and Mr. Latouche’s health

 

14 - 17 Aug. 1781

Early on Monday morning, the 6th inst, died, at Coleraine, Mrs. Ann Jackson, lady to the Right Hon. Richard Jackson; and most deservedly and deeply lamented by rich and poor; but chiefly by a fond and affectionate husband, whose grief and affliction is beyond description, forther than by saying that it is in a measure proportioned to his loss, which is immense and irreparable.

I believe this is Anne JACKSON née O’NEILL

2 - 6 Sept. 1791

Whereas on Friday the 26th instant between the hours of 10 and 11 o'clock at night, the house of Martha Coulter of Cavanamore, in the County of Louth, was broken open and robbed of 15 guineas, and several articles of plate, viz. 6 tablespoons, 5 teaspoons, a tray, a pair of salts, parish of sugar tongs, a punch ladle, and a pair of shoe buckles, most of them marked J. M. B.

Now we whose names are here unto subscribed to promise to pay the several sums to our names annexed  to any person or persons who shall in the space of six months from the date hereof, discover on and prosecute to conviction, the person or persons concerned in said robbery; and if any of the persons concerned shall make a discovery so that his or their accomplices may be prosecuted to conviction, they will not only be entitled to the reward, but application shall be made for his Majesty's most gracious pardon. – 20th August, 1791.

NOTE: One of the signatories for the reward was David JACKSON. I have transcribed and annotated this article and it can be accessed through my Documents link, and then by date under Newsclippings.

22 - 25 Apr. 1794

CAVAN Assizes

DYAS vs JACKSON

Monday the 7th inst was tried at Cavan Assizes, before the Hon. Justices Cruickshank, an action bought by Mr. James Dyas, of Kings Court , against Gordon Jackson, Esq. A very active Magistrate of the county Cavan, to recover damages for breaking the plaintiff’s windows on account of his not illuminating them on the 9th of August last, when intelligence was received of the surrender of Valenciennes..... verdict for the plaintiff.

NOTE: I wonder if this was the Gordon JACKSON in the Lisnaboe Tree, who was a son of Thomas JACKSON & Ann GORDON.

 The DYAS and JACKSON families intermarried in America. See: Bill Farrell files. Mary Jackson b: 25 Jun 1788 d: 1849 +John Dyas  b: 28 Dec 1782 d: 14 Aug 1862 in of New Orleans and Nashville. Mary JACKSON was a daughter of Alexander JACKSON and Mary HENRY of Cremorne, Monaghan.

See Siege of Valenciennes – it was part of the French Revolutionary Wars. Anglo-Austrian forces took the town in July 1793 - the year that is referred to by the 9th of August last. The politics behind this action would indicate that Gordon JACKSON was opposed to the French Revolution, while DYAS was likely in favour (hence the emigration of DYAS family members to America, as well as a number of JACKSONs - but not Gordon JACKSON. Incidentally, Valenciennes was retaken by the French Revolutionary armies in August 1794.

27 - 30 June 1794

TO BE SET

A House in Castle Street, Lisburn, lately in the possession of the Rev. Hamilton Trail, deceased. Application to be made to Francis Jackson, Esq., Sligo, or William Darby, Lisburn. July 1, 1794.

I wonder if this might be the Francis JACKSON (1769-1834), son of George JACKSON & Jane Cuff of Co. Mayo.

25 - 28 July 1794

A runaway servant .. He is an ill made, ill looking fellow, blind of one eye, and squints with the other and has run away from 16 different masters. FRANCES JACKSON Randalstown Paper Mill, June 27, 1794.

12 - 15 Sept. 1794

John Jackson, Henry Jackson, sen and jr tried and acquitted of the murder of John McCaffrey at Drumnakelly, on the 24th May last, by wounding him with a bayonet in the breast.

 

29 Dec. 1794 - 2 Jan. 1795

On Friday last at the seat of Mrs. Jackson near Dundalk, was married by special licence the Right Hon. Lord Gormanstown, to the Hon Miss Southwell, with a fortune of 20,000l. It may not be unworthy of remark, that the ages of this truly amiable couple do not exceed thirty-five years.

NOTE: This marriage was only at the seat of Mrs. JACKSON. I suspect she was the widow Nichola Ann Cecil JACKSON née HAMILTON (d. abt 1804). The Right Hon. Lord Gormanstown,, who was Jenico PRESTON, 12th Viscount Gormanstown (1775-1860) married the Hon Margaret SOUTHWELL in 1794.

16 - 20 Mar. 1795

Tuesday 10th, Mrs. Elizabeth Brown of Tandragee died.

 

To all Whom it May Concern

Whereas I, Thomas Jackson of Drumnakelly, in the County of Armagh, do stand charged with being concerned with the alleged murder of John McCaffrey of Balliworken in said county, on the 14th day of May last – I do hereby give notice, that I have surrendered myself up into the custody of the Sherriff of said County, and that I am now in the Gaol of Armagh, and do intend taking my trial for the said alleged murder at the next Assizes to be held in and for said county, of which all persons concerned are desired to take notice. Dated 19th March, 1795. THOMAS JACKSON.

 

27 - 30 Mar. 1795

STOLEN

On the night of the 14th instant, (the property of Mr. John JACKSON,  Castle Carbery, county of Kildare)

One Mare, bright bay, black legs, mane and tail, five years old, only a small star, her tail often nicked but carried badly, turned in her toes a little, trotted fast, about 15 hands and an inch high.

A black Mare, seven years old, a [?]each down her face, and white legs, same of the near shoulder, and a scurf on it, received by a [?], heavy in foal, about 14 hands and a half high.

Four Guineas reward will be given for the Mares and twenty pounds for the Mares and thief, on prosecuting to conviction. March 29th, 1795.

 

4 - 8 May 1795

Yesterday the remains of the Reverend but unfortunate Mr. Jackson were carried in the forenoon from the undertakers in May-lane, in a hearse, accompanied by twelve coaches, to the cemetery of St. Michans and there decently interred.

This is the Rev. William JACKSON who took poison and died in the court rather than receive the anticipated death sentence for treason resulting from his United Irishmen involvements. By doing this, he protected his wife’s inheritance.

11 - 15 May 1795

Dublin May 11

By the death of Mr. Jackson, before sentence was pronounced, his property, which it was said amounted to about 200l, a year, will be preferred to his family, and not escheat to the Crown, as it would otherwise have done.

 

A fulsome praise from the inhabitants of Forhill to which Mrs. Jackson replied: ... I am greatly gratified by the opportunity I have had of serving them. Forkhill Lodge.

The first article concerns the Rev William JACKSON who took poison and died in the court rather than receive the anticipated death sentence for treason resulting from his United Irishmen involvements. By doing this, he protected his wife’s inheritance.

The second article refers to the widow of Richard JACKSON of Forkhill, Nichola Anne Cecil JACKSON née HAMILTON

6 - 10 July 1795

On Thursday, the 11th ult. The Revd Joseph Jackson was ordained minister of the Protestant Dissenting Congregation of Creggan and Newtownhamilton, in the county of Armagh, vacant by the resignation of Alexander McComb, who had been 53 years Minister of that place.

 

11 - 14 Sept. 1795

DIED A few days ago, Mrs. Jackson of Waring Street, sincerely lamented by her relatives and friends and [?] many fine talents rendered her universally regretted as a public loss.

 

11 - 14 Dec. 1795

4 Aug. 1797

DIED On Tuesday night at her lodgings on the Whitehouse Shore, Mrs. Rowan, wife of Henry ROWAN of Belfast – In the relative duties of wife, mother, friend, none could excel her.

In Newtownards a few days ago, Mr. John Jackson of that place; it is sufficient to say he was a tender husband, a fond father, a sincere and affectionate friend, a good neighbour and a truly honest man.

 

21 Aug. 1797

COACH INN NEWTOWNARDS

The prisoners were charged with acts of High Treason committed by them and others, at a Provincial meeting of the Delegates of Ulster at Armagh, on the 10th of May last – and for acting aiding and assisting in the Rebellion.

...

Thomas Prentice Witness: Knows Jackson to be a young man of integrity, much attached to truth and of peaceable manners

...

Long article, quality of film not great – otherwise I would have printed it.

NOTE: I need to check this out, but he could be the John JACKSON (1773-1832) who emigrated to America. He would have been a nephew of Henry JACKSON (1750-1817).

7 Aug. 1798

Mr. Hugh Jackson offered reward.

This would likely be the Hugh JACKSON (1769-1806) connected to the Lisbanoe tree.

26 July 1799

Samuel MONTGOMERY, Dr. Inoculated 800-900 children without having one death.

 

In our paper of Friday last we copied from a British Newspaper the death of Captain William O’Neil, said to be a nephew of the late Lord O’Neil – we are assured the late Lord O’Neil had but one nephew, for instance, the present Major Jackson, one of the members for the borough of Randalstown – consequently the said publication is founded in error, so far as it relates to the late Lord O’Neil.

This may be Robert JACKSON, although he was a Lieut-Col who died after 1798. He was the son of Richard JACKSON & Anne O’NEILL. She was the daughter of Charles O’NEILL of Shanes Castle.
