The most up-to date version of this tree will always be on my Family Tree at Rootsweb. I had previously posted (but have not updated with all the info that is on this page) a detailed tree of the descendents of Robert JACKSON.
Sharon Oddie Brown. August 24, 2016
Update August 25, 2016. Thanks to Jan Waugh, christening info on the children of Robert JACKSON and Joyce SHAW were found at Family Search, and I have made the subsequent changes to the family tree. Also thanks to these new dates and location of christenings, I poked around a bit more, and now know that the family was not only Presbyterian, but were also more likely to be from the north of England than from Scotland. I have added new sources and other potential clues at the bottom of this page .

Jacksons of Crooked Staff, Dublin

This family tree began with parish registers of St. Catherine’s Church, Dublin, and was fleshed out with data from memorials of deeds. Where the first known Robert JACKSON, a tanner, originated from, I do not know. Here are a few facts to consider (the tree is beneath, as are more detailed notes on deeds):

  • Robert & Joyce JACKSON had four sons, and one of them, William JACKSON (abt 1682-bef 1772) was a tanner of Kilmainham. In 1713, he held a lease to land commonly known as Farley’s holdings in town of Killmainham. Next adjoining to the bridge at the upper end of Killmainham leading from the town of Kilmainham to the new hospital mearing and bounding on the East unto the Lord Ross’s land, on the North to the River of Camock or Camrick and to the West and South unto the street leading from the Town to the said bridge of Killmainham
  • I suspect there is a relationship between the JACKSONs of Crooked Staff and the William JACKSON (1779-1812) who d 8 Aug 1812 age 33 & also 8 of his children who died in infancy, and his wife Ann JACKSON of Exhequer St., Dublin who survived him. He was buried at the Kilmainham Churchyard, Dublin. SOURCE: Jacksons in Irish Memorials of the Dead.
  • Mill street in the Liberty of Thomas Court and Donore was known as Tanner’s Row. Crumlin Cemetery (the old St. Mary's Church): JACKSON: This Stone and Burial Place Belongeth to Will"11 Jackson of Mill Street Tanner and his Posterity 1772. SOURCE: JMDI iv p. 231
  • On the assumption that a trade may connect families, it is worth noting other known JACKSON tanners who may or may not have a connection:
    • Daniel JACKSON of Athy: ROD: 2-437-552. Jul 15, 1709 Between Wentworth CAVANAGH, Gent of Athy, Co. Kildare & Daniel JACKSON of same, tanner. Indenture of release in consideration of sum of 40 pounds., all that and those the houses and holdings of William ADDIS in the Market Street of Athy containing 84 feet to the front in the same street eastward and to the river backwards 143 ft. with the 7 acres & 23 perches … for natural life of said Wentworth CAVANAGH, his son James CAVANAGH & Beshell WESTON son of son of Thomas WESTON of Athy.. rent 8 pounds 6p,
    • DEED: 43-421-28800 Indenture May 6, 1724 Wm. JAMES of Athy. Co. Kildare, Tanner did demise & set to Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff in Co. Dublin Tanner and Josiah JACKSON of Glassholly, Co. Kildare Farmer lease of house in Athy from Robert JACKSON to Josiah JACKSON for 22 years. NOTE: Was Josiah a son or nephew of the Robert JACKSON (1681-aft 1725) - the son of Robert JACKSON & Joyce SHAW?
    • Co. Down JACKSONs: Here also lieth the body of Gilbert Jackson of Newton, tanner, who departed this life 22 Sep 1723  aged 46 years.
    • I need to refind some records that I recalll that I once had for a Richard JACKSON (1769-1836), husband of Margaret Irwin, and son of Joseph JACKSON of Co. Tyrone. He made his fortune from leather, as did some of the JACKSONs in Drogheda in the 1600s.
  • The first branch of the Bank of Ireland opened at Boot Lane and St. Mary's Abbey in 1783 in a private house previously owned by one Charles Blakeney, but had to move because of the smell of an adjacent tanyard.
  • Bank of Ireland Survey 1796

  • ROD: 2-44-250 Jan 11, 1708 are somehow connected to this family. Dorcas GREEN married Francis JACKSON in 1676, and the will of Francis JACKSON, a clothier, was probated in 1696. SOURCE: NA Ireland. Green Mss/III/I/p43. Doc # 27960. I do not yet know how it connects, and whether Francis JACKSON (?-abt 1676) may also be related to Michael JACKSON the clothier of nearby Pimlico. The land was described as: all those houses tanyards, backside gardens, backhouses, stables & Appurtenances held by George BLACKHALL on the south side of the Upper Comb in the Liberties of Thomas Court & Donore, Dublin,  containing breadth in the front 93 ft or thereabouts, in the rere.. and in depth to Mutton Lane of 312 ft… during natural lives of Dorcus JACKSON, wife of the late Francis JACKSON & Jane her daughter, wife of the said George  [BLACKHALL] & Mary JACKSON grand daughter to the said Francis JACKSON. A map drawn in 1749 shows a portion of that parcel owned by a person named Vicars, possibly a son (William VICARS) of the Joyce JACKSON, daughter of Robert & Joyce, who married Jeremiah VICARS. None of the land is still held by JACKSONs.
  • ROD: 21-506-12291 links the names of Mary JACKSON & George BLACKALL as well as John SHAW & Henry SHAW with property at the Crooked Staff, with the house built by Henry LITTON, builder, plus other properties on S side of Upper Comb, Liberties Thomas Court & Donore. NOTE: Joyce SHAW wife of Michael JACKSON is likely related to John & Henry SHAW.
  • ROD: 53-32-34285 Mar 23, 1726 links the names of John SHAW& Henry SHAW & Robert JACKSON [1711] slip of land near Crooked Staff bounded as follows: on the East joining to another holding of Robert JACKSON deceased in partly with the holding of Edward COLGAN on the West. Partly to the holding of Timothy EMERSON and partly with the holding of David CARTON on the North fronting Cork Street and on the south  fronting Chambers Street and containing in breadth to the front of Cork St 28 ft or thereabouts and in breadth in front Chambers St. 38 ft or thereabouts  except the gateway as it was then leading  in the of said Robert JACKSON dec’d other holding and in length from North to South  218 feet or thereabouts on that end the said piece of Ground near Chambers St the said Robert JACKSON dec’d had one new large dwelling  house on the other and fronting Corke St. James WHITELL carpenter tenant to the said Robert JACKSON dec’d  had built one other new large dwelling house. NOTE: The addition of a witness named Boyde SHAW may be a useful clue about how Francis JACKSON & Dorcas GREEN are connected to the JACKSONs of Crooked Staff etc.
  • How does the Rev William JACKSON of Clonmell, Tipperary and also of Cork fit in (see mention in Strettle JACKSON page as well as references in deeds beneath)? It is possible that he was a Presbyterian Minister. There were congregations in Clonmell, Cork & Dublin.

NOTE: The Family Search file on St. Eustace includes a number of other names that are mentioned in the deeds:

·       Ralph CARD, wife Angel. NOTE: A Ralph CARD is mentioned as a life along with John SHAW and Henry SHAW in relation to leases for properties on S side of Upper Comb, Liberties Thomas Court & Donore in 1718, and also in regard to the wedding of William JACKSON and Anne HUNT.

·       Samuel CARD was married to a Mary. On this page of Family Search, it seems that he had three daughters and no sons are recorded.

·       A GREEN family had a number of baptisms at St. Eustace, but I could not find one for Dorcas.

·       John SHAW & Henry SHAW appear as lives in a 1718 lease. A John SHAW was christened Mar 31, 1781 and a Henry SHAW was christened June 7, 1783 – both children of a Thomas SHAW & wife Ann.

Jane JACKSON daughter of said Dorcas Jackson & now wife of George BLACKHALL Mortgage JACKSON Mary granddaughter of said Francis Jackson Mortgage MOS

This is not the Francis JACKSON (b 1632) in the Coleraine line (he was a clergyman – not a clothier).Dorcas GREENE married Francis JACKSON in 1676. SOURCE: NA: Green Mss/III/I/p43. Doc # 27960. A will was probated for a Francis JACKSON 1696 St. Patrick’s Close, Dublin, Gent NOTE: This Francis is likely related to those at JACKSONs of St. Catherines Church.

If this is the case, then they would also likely connect to Robert JACKSON, tanner of Crooked Staff: SEE: Exploring JACKSON links between Dublin & Co. Meath NOTE: Dorcas GREEN married Francis JACKSON in 1676, and the will of Francis JACKSON, a clothier, was probated in 1696. SOURCE: NA Ireland. Green Mss/III/I/p43. Doc # 27960. Jane JACKSON wife of George BLACKHALL died intestate 1718. A George BLACKHALL was Lord Mayor of Dublin in 1694-95, but what is curious is the history of 17 Eustace St-A History has an alternate wife for him: Richard Blackhall or Blackall who settled at Black Island, Co. Limerick, from where he was expelled and robbed by the rebels in 1641.40 Richard was later besieged at Kilfinny Castle by Confederate Forces under Lord Muskerry. The third son to issue from the marriage of Richard Blackhall was George, Alderman of Angier Street, Dublin (1693), Receiver General (1693), Lord Mayor of Dublin (1694) and City Treasurer (1695). George Blackhall was removed from office with other Protestants by James II, but restored by William III in 1690. He was married on 9th September 1672 to Judith (1652-1709), the daughter of Alderman Lewis Dès Mynières, Lord Mayor of Dublin (1669), the son of Robert of Rouen, France and died in 1701 after having had issue, including his eldest son, Thomond (1674-1714) of Littlerath, Co.

Added August 25, 2016: Robert JACKSON and Joyce SHAW and their links to Presbyterianism

 

Long before the opening of St. Eustace, formerly known as “New Row”, Presbyterians had been active in St. Nicholas Church, a church which also includes a number of JACKSONs in their parish registers. The first ministers of St. Eustace had preached at St. Nicholas every Sunday at least as early as 1665. SOURCE: A history of Presbyterianism in Dublin and the south and west of Ireland Clarke H. Irwin, M.A., Minister at Bray. London. p325: Mr. Mather was a Senior Fellow of Trinity, and before 1665 had preached every Lord's Day morning in the parish church of St. Nicholas, where he had been ordained on December 5th, 1656, according to the Presbyterian form, by Dr. Winter, Rev. Mr. Taylor of Carrickfergus, and Rev. Mr. Jenner of Drogheda. … In 1728 the congregation of New Row removed to the new church which they had erected in Eustace Street. " It must have been at that time considered an imposing structure ; for a Quaker, looking up at the stately front, is reported to have said, ' Where there is so much vanity without, there cannot be much religion within.  

 

Their connection of the parish of St. Nicholas to the congregations in other parts of Ireland, especially to Carrickfergus and Drogheda, is worth keeping in mind with respect to looking for clues to connections with other JACKSONs.  Although St Nicholas is the church where the clothier Michael JACKSON of Pimlico was buried in 1717, most of that Michael JACKSONs children were baptized at St. Catherine’s Church (where Robert JACKSON & Joyce SHAW were married). The two parishes are adjacent to each other, and the churches would have been merely a short walk from one to the other.

 

Given the attendance of Robert JACKSON, tanner of Crooked Staff at St. Eustace and his wife Joyce SHAW, another clue to his ancestry can be found in An Explanation and Defence of the Principles of Protestant Dissent. William Hamilton Drummond. London, 1842, p.8.: The congregations of Eustace-street and Strand-street are the only genuine Protestant Dissenting Presbyterians in the city of Dublin; the descendants, as has been affirmed, not of Scotch Calvinists, but English nonconformists— dissenters from the Church of England.

 

St Eustace became a Unitarian Church, and William JACKSON (1690-1772) was involved at that time, as was his brother-in-law William VICARS (1707-aft1769): SOURCE: Dublin Unitarian Church Collection RIA/DUC/2/COO/7 4 March 1769: Copy of deed of assignment of Cook Street premises from William Vickers to Thomas Litton, Alexander Kirkpatrick and others. Parties: William Vickers of Dublin, chandler, of the first part; Thomas Litton and Michael Cromie and  Alexander Kirkpatrick and Brindley Hone, merchants  and Robert Burton, cooper and William Jackson, tanner, all of Dublin, of the second part.  Property: Premises at Cook Street, Dublin Terms: Transfer of property to new Trustees with regulations concerning the appointment of subsequent Trustees. Includes: Refers to earlier leases commencing with  the deeds of bargain and sale and release from  Daniel Wybrants to Ralph Norris. Witnessed by James Armstrong and Thomas Vickers.

 

A Georgian House, at No. 25 Eustace St has seven bedrooms for rent, and they have included on their web site some interesting history about Eustace Street:

Eustace Street has a rich and varied history, famous as much for its religious nature as for its bawdy houses and bars since the 17th century. Both Quakers and Presbyterians have a presence in Eustace Street. The Society of Friends Meeting House, almost directly opposite No.25, has served the Quaker population that settled in the Sycamore Street locality 200 years ago. The old Presbyterian School (now the children's centre, 'The Ark') was established in 1715, and the church served one of the richest Presbyterian parishes in the city from 1685. … On the façade of the Friends Meeting House is a plaque commemorating the first meeting at this house, which is presumed to be the site of the Eagle Tavern, of the United Irishmen, prior to the 1798 Rebellion.

NOTE: The site of The Ark was the site of St. Eustace Presbyterian Church. More history at Dublin Unitarians.
