Documents relating to Co. Down - relating to JACKSONs and others.
Sharon Oddie Brown. March 20, 2018

 

DERRY aka LONDONDERRY SEE: DERRY-docs March 20, 2018
DOWN NOTE: Newtownards, a key town for JACKSONs, was formerly called Ballylisnevan.
A reference book worth purchasing: Ian Maxwell, Researching Down Ancestors: A Practical Guide for the Family and Local Historian.
 
Ardglass. In time, I will get a page up that will include several photos and family tales relating to the BROWN and MARTIN families of Ardglass. For now, there is only the story of a family sundial that relates to Ringfad. January 29, 2009
BMDs of Co. Down, Parish of Knockbreda register gleanings. My focus was on JACKSONs and names known to have married into the family. It is by no means exhaustive, in part because the films I was working with varied in quality - as did my vision, depending on the time of day. July 3, 2014
Jacksons and others in Parish of Knockbreda, Barony of Castlereagh Upper. Griffiths valuations. July 3, 2014
Probates of JACKSONs of Co. Down. I have also done a tree of the JACKSONs of Co. Down which includes many of these people, and there are many more of them in my tree who are also likely to be connected. This is just a start. There are also later abstracts which can be found at PRONI Will Calendars Search. July 3, 2014
JACKSON Freeholders of Castlereagh. Extracted from PRONI Freeholders records (with a few others thrown in). I searched for John JACKSON, and picked up a few others in the by-catch. July 3, 2014
JACKSON BMDs from the Belfast Newsletter. This 9 page chart also includes a fair bit of me thinking-out-loud as well as a lot of verified facts and relationships. March 20, 2017
JACKSONs of Co. Down - a Townland sort. I have interpolated many of the records of JACKSONs recorded in the Belfast Newsletter BMDs, with as many of the memorials of deeds that I can find notes on [based on my 2016 update – more to come]. March 20, 2017
This chart of Jackson Baptisms in Co Down is just a start. I will update it after I get back from my spring 2017 trip to Ireland. More to come. March 25, 2017
JACKSON births. Births of Jacksons from the Parish of Raffrey and from several townlands between there and Saintfield. Many of these families seem to be related. Most of them seem to be the descendants of JACKSON farmers who held leases in the area from at least the mid 1700s. Updated December 26, 2017

JACKSON deaths from Downpatrick Registry and elsewhere. This is part of my recent “cluster approach” to unraveling the various JACKSONs who may or may not be related to each other, and who had ties to the townlands east of Saintfield. Apparently, thanks to recent DNA postings, I am distantly related to some of these people, Exactly how I may be related continues to elude me. I will continue to update this page with more data and links as time permits. The most important link will be to Some JACKSONs of Killinchy & Kilmore.
