Documents relating to the ancestry of Rev. William JACKSON.


DRAFT:These are no more than rough notes. Hopefully they will make sense to anyone who is curious about how I came to the conclusions that I reached in the previous blog post: Rev. William Jackson and his GORE ancestry. I welcome input and correction. Always.

 Who was Rev. William JACKSON's first wife? 
 
This marriage cert is a long shot, but ....  Rev. William JACKSON was married by a Rev. Theophilus JONES to an Ann PALMER daughter of Matthew PALMER. NOTE: A Theophilus JONES, M.P. - who may or may not be the same person - was a son of Walter JONES and Olivia COOTE (daughter of Chidley COOTE). He was also  secretary to Augustus Hervey, 3rd Earl of Bristol. Rev. William JACKSON had significant friendship with the wife of Augustus HERVEY, Elizabeth Chudleigh (1720–1788. There are too many compelling coincidences here to ignore.
In the following Memorial of a Deed, is the forename of Jackson’s grandmother (Elizabeth), and also the names of two of her children by her first marriage to Col. Francis GORE. The same cluster of key townlands included in this deed were echoed in more than half a dozen subsequent deeds. SEE: GORE and SALE aka SALL deeds.

NOTE: The hyperlinked memorial numbers will take you to deeds accessed through Family Search’s memorials of deeds.  My notes do not include the complete text, but the original source can be found there. The hyperlinks of the townland names will take you to the Irish Townlands site. This gives the geographical context.

ROD: 56-171-37456  1728 Mar 28 BTW John SALE of Dublin Esq. & Elizabeth his wife widow & relict of Coll. Francis GORE deceased and Henry GORE of same City Gent and eldest son & heir of the said Coll Francis GORE and Francis GORE of same City Gent second son of the said Coll Francis GORE of the 1st pt & Tabitha BROWNE of City of London Spinster of 2nd pt. and John TWIGGE of City of Dublin Merchant of 3rd pt. Whereby John SALE, Elizabeth his wife Henry GORE and Francis GORE for the consideration of £300 sold lands including Glanboy [Glenboy, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire] One Quarter Townemoyle [aka Taunymoyle possibly Tawnymanus], one Cartron Gortlenfort als Gortinlongport and Cloonine [Clooneen, Parish Inishmagrath, Barony Drumahaire,]  one Cartron One parcel of Land called Dromore [Dromore, Parish Killasnet, Barony Rosclogher] all in Barony of Drumahaire and half Barony of Rosclogher Co. Leitrim to Tabitha BROWNE her heirs and Assigns. WITNESS: George USSHER of City of Dublin Merchant David MULLON of City of Dublin Writing Clerk and Michael BARRY of City of Dublin Gent. Memorial WITNESS:  Michael BARRY & Lewis HIGGINS John SALE [SEAL]

NOTE: A Cartron was an Anglo-Norman word used to designate a “quarter of land”. Some these names morphed into townland names. Some just disappeared. A few cautions. Often there is more than one townland with the same name in the same county and that can straddle parish borders in the same way that some of the parishes straddle Baronies. Current boundaries are not always the same as in the original deeds.


NOTE: The parish of Killasnet is shaded in yellow and is on the western border of Cloonclare while the parish of Inishmagrath is south of both parishes and nearby but not contiguous with either.

Half of the Parish of Cloonclare mentioned in the above memorial is clearly in the Barony of Rosclogher and half of it is in the Barony of Drumahaire. This helps researchers to determine which townlands are either contiguous, or at least nearby. Often the intervening townlands can be found in the hands of relations.

Contemporary maps show where these parishes are in relation to current roads and towns.


NOTE: The proximity of Manorhamilton aka Manor Hamilton is likely to prove  interesting in terms of the Jackson family connections.

In the map above that shows the whole county of Leitrim, Innishmagrath is the southermost of the three parishes shaded in yellow.


These contemporary maps are useful when overlaid with earlier road networks. For example, Skinner and Taylors’ Maps of the Roads of Ireland, 2nd ed. 1783 shows the distances and main routes between Manor Hamilton and the Town of Sligo. This is significant because of the numerous leases of the Gore and Booth-Gore families both in Co. Sligo and Co. Leitrim. The holdings of Col. Francis Gore in Leitrim listed in ROD: 56-171-37456 (near Manor Hamilton) were only about ten miles away from the Town of Sligo.
Page 55 ( page 75 in the pdf version) NOTE: On page IV (page 3 in the pdf), it clarifies that measurements are given in both British and Irish miles. 11 Irish miles equal 14 British. M=Miles; F= Furlongs.

 The highlighted route in the map above is the uppermost of the two routes circled beneath.
Page 65 (in the pdf format, it is page 87)
NOTE: Town of Sligo is page 60 [pdf pg 90]. Page 55 shows distances. Page 4 shows context. Page 65 shows two ways to get to Sligo from Mannor Hamilton and also includes the names of relations such as the WYNNEs.
The marginalia on the blank page between Maps 2 & 3 may be useful with respect to JACKSON leases in Co. Meath. The JACKSONs of Drogheda were related somehow to the PEPPARDs. The selling of an estate in exchange for a horse was not uncommon among soldiers who had no interest in owning land: "Ballygarth with other denominations of land containing 700 acres confirmed to Captain George Pepper under the act of settlement from 1666. Tradition says that he was a Cromwellian Trumpeter & gave a white horse in exchange for the estate"...See also PEPPARDs of Co. Louth.
 Following a Cluster of Townlands in Co. Leitrim.

The same cluster of townlands mentioned in ROD: 56-171-37456 were part of marriage jointure when Elizabeth married Coll Francis Gore, not that we yet know when they married.

ROD: 57-180-37906, 1728 May 28 BTW John SALE of City of Dublin Esq & Elizabeth his wife of 1 pt & Henry GORE son of Elizabeth of the other part. Reciting that when the said Elizabeth was married to the said Henry GOREs father Colle Francis GORE and by deed of settlement was intitled to a jointure which after the death of said husband Colle Francis GORE she possessed the Town and Lands of Glanby [Glenboy, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire] containing one quarter Moyle one Cartron Gortinport als Gortinlonport [Gortnalibbert, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire] and Clonine [Clooneen, Parish Inishmagrath, Barony Drumahaire,] one Cartron one parcel of land called Dromore [Dromore, Parish Killasnet, Barony Rosclogher] in Barony Druminhare [Drumahaire] and half Barony and half Barony of Rosscloghers  [Rosclogher] in the Co. Leitrim & reciting  that whereas the reversion of the said lands belong to the said Henry GORE as Son at the request of the said Elizabeth did enter into several securities for the sum of £300 as well for the use of him the said Henry GORE as of his brother Francis GORE youngest son of the said Colle Francis GORE now the said deed witnesses that the said John SALL and Elizabeth his wife in consideration of natural love and five shillings sterling to them paid by the said Henry GORE did give and grant unto the said Henry GORE and his assigns during the natural Life of the said Henry GORE the annual Rent or Sum of Ten pounds sterling to be issuing and payable half yearly … out of the aforesaid lands…. WITNESS: Edward SALE of City of Dublin Esq. & Magneas SYKE of City of Dublin Gent and this memorial WITNESS Henry SMITH of City of Dublin Gent.
NOTE: These lands in Co. Leitrim are mentioned in ROD:77-469-54378

ROD: 66-145-45521 shows that the same townlands had previously been sold & conveyed to said Collo Francis GORE deceased with the reversion & reversions.

Rd DARCRES Clk to said Mr William ROUND Thomas WOULF of City of Dublin Merchant & William SALE of the same Gent.
NOTE: An Abigail SALE, daughter of a William SALE married a Henry JACKSON of Birr, Kings Co.

From ROD: 77-199-53333 we learn that Elizabeth not only outlived Coll Francis Gore but also outlived her second husband John SALE. Again, the continuity of townland names means there is no doubt that all these references are to the same Elizabeth:

1734 May 17 ROD: 77-199-53333 BTW Elizabeth SALE of City of Dublin widow of 1 pt & Francis CORKRAN of Sligo, Co. Sligo Merchant of the other part of the town and lands of Gortinlamport [Gortnalibbert Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire], Carrickmarnard and Drumamore the quarter of Glanboy [Glenboy, Parish Cloonclare] in Barony of Drumahair [Drumahaire] and the sub denominations thereof viz Bunn and Barr of Faron [Barr of Farrow, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire]  the Bun and Barr of Ardvarnagh [Ardvarney, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire] Mincemore  [Meenymore, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire] Moneenlum [Moneenlom Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire], Lullaghnebehy & Bricklunagh with the Tuck Mills of Glanboy [Glenboy, Parish Cloonclare ]in Barony of Drumahair [Drumahaire] Co. Leitrim from 1st May 1733 for term of 31 years if the said Elizabeth SALE shall so long live … WITNESS; John KELLY one of the Attorneys of his Majesty’s Court of Kings Bench in Ireland; Francis JACKSON [Probably from Duddington] Gent of City of Dublin.

Who was the GORE grandmother of Rev. William Jackson?

Although many Irish wills went up in smoke in 1922, Bentham’s Abstracts GORE has an abstract which shows not only that Elizabeth Sale ors Gore had written her will in 1732, but that it was not proved until 1744. Perhaps it took a decade to be proved because there was an overabundance of lawyers in the family, or else because the double marriages added complexity. This is guesswork.



The deed beneath reveals that Elizabeth Sale had already died sometime before Feb 5, 1735, therefore between 1732-1735. One other key tidbit in the deed that follows is Elizabeth’s birth name: Tiffin.

1735 Feb 5 ROD: 84-15-57698
BTW Henry GORE of City of Dublin Gent son & heir of Francis GORE and of Elizabeth SALE als GORE both deceased of the 1 pt & Francis CORKRAN of Sligo, Co. Sligo Merchant of the other pt. Henry GORE demised to Francis CORKRAN townlands of Taunymoyle [possibly Tawnymanus], Gortinlamport, [Gortnalibbert Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire] Carrickmarnad Drimore and the [?] of Glanboy [Glenboy, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire] and the subdenominations thereof the Bunn and Barr of Faron [Barr of Farrow, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire]  the Bun and Barr of Ardvarnagh [Ardvarney, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire] Mincemore  [Meenymore, Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire] Moneenlum [Moneenlom Parish Cloonclare Barony of Drumahaire], Lullaghnebehy & Bricklunagh with the Tuck Mills of Glanboy [Glenboy, Parish Cloonclare ]in Barony of Drumahair [Drumahaire] Co. Leitrim for term of 31 years. WITNESSED: Edward SALE of City of Dublin Doctor of Laws & Francis DUANY of this City Surgeon & Thomas WILLS of said City Gent Memorial witness: Thomas WILLS & Francis CHAMBERLAIN of City of Dublin
NOTE: The parish of Cloonclare is just east of Manorhamilton.

The following deed shows that Elizabeth als Sale als Gore als Tiffin, most likely had rights to leases in Castle Street in the Town of Sligo. This is the first deed that is at least circumstantial evidence of the Sligo-Gore connection first mentioned in the newspaper accounts of Rev. William Jackson in 1794. SEE: The United Irishmen – Their Lives and Times.

1735 Feb 13 ROD: 84-15-57699.
GORE – CORKRAN The Plotts & Houses in Possession of Stephen Crean & [?] Wiggins
BTW Henry GORE of City of Dublin Gent son & heir of Francis GORE & of Elizabeth SALE als GORE als TIFFIN both deceased of 1 pt & Francis CORKRAN of Sligo, Co. Sligo Merchant of the other pt. Henry GORE set to Francis CORKRAN Plotts and Houses in Castle Street Town of Sligo in possession of Stephen CREAN & Patrick WIGGINS and Their undertenants for term of 31 years… WITNESS: Man CORNYN of City of Dublin Gent & Thomas WILLs of same Gent

An incomplete entry in Baronetage and Knightage of the British Empire - 2nd part of The Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage Joseph Foster 1882 ed. p.266 echoes the Tiffin aka Tyffan link. NOTE: The father-n-law of Col Francis GORE was also a Col.  Service in the army was the source of their connection.



Another genealogy was included in The Gentleman's and London Magazine: Or Monthly Chronologer, 1741-1794 page 485. Published in September 1746, it was at least close to contemporaneous and it mentions a son Tyffan Gore. His name does not show up in the deeds as a son of Col. Francis GORE. There is a possibility that there was confusion with a grandson of Col. Tyffan. That Tiffan Gore was the son of Rev. Francis Gore.


A will for a Zacharia Tiffin in 1702 in Dublin led me back to Benthams Abstracts, and to an abstract which identifies Elizabeth Tiffin as the daughter of Col. Tiffin aka Tyffan. Elizabeth GORE né TIFFIN was already widowed.

Combining regiment lists with deeds research can be rewarding because of the nature of the bonds formed between men in battle. In the English Army Lists and Commission Registers 1661-1714, Vol 3 p.330 are names that I have highlighted. I have also interpolated my own notes into some of the footnotes.

3 Probably the Capt. Wm. Smith who distinguished himself in the battle of Newtown Butler, on
1 Aug. 1689, by cutting off with his sword, at one blow, the top of an Irish soldier's h^ad, just under
his hat, not leaving even a bit of skin to keep the two portions of the man's skull together. (Andrew
Hamilton's True Relation of the Men of Inniskilling, p. 43). D. or left the Regt. before 22 Apr.
1691.
4 Probably the " Colonel " Jno. Ffolliott noticed in Burke's Landed Gentry as being son of Jno.

II Called " Capt. Corry, Colonel of Foot," in Wm. M'Cormick's Further Relation of the Men of
Inniskilling. Served in Flauders in 1694.

NOTE: Zacharia Tiffin was the first to raise the Royal Irish Regiment in Enniskillen in 1689. Tiffin’s regiment, which originated with forces raised by Gustavus Hamilton, was one of those supporting King William III and he was active in the 'neighbourhood of St. James Town'.

The will of Zacharia Tiffin connected to the abstract to a will of Francis Gore in  another Bentham’s Abstract in 1701,. This one names the minor aged children of Francis and Elisabeth: Henry, Catherine and Anne. The youngest daughter, Anne, would become the mother of Rev. William Jackson. Because Anne was still a minor at the time of her father Col. Francis Gore’s death, she would have been born sometime between 1680-1701.

INSERT 1701 Francis GORE
Hon Francis GORE to Elizabeth GORE the wife and relict
Henry, Catherine & Anne Minor children
Admon granted 28 Feb 1701
NOTE: Why Francis Gore is not mentioned in his father’s will, I don’t know – but this kind of omission happens and often for no discernable reason.

NOTE: In 1701, at the time of Col Francis GORE’s death, Zacharia Tiffin's regiment was in Antigua

Since the birth date of, Rev. Francis Gore, the youngest son of Elizabeth Tiffin and Col Francis GORE was about 1684, it is likely that she would have been too late-in-life to conceive a child in her 2nd marriage to John Sale. That marriage had to have been sometime after 1701. Rev. Francis Gore (1684-1763) of St. Patrick’s Close, Dublin named one of his sons Tyffin Gore –a variant spelling of Tiffin.


The above entry from Benthams is revealing when coupled with the following deeds:

NOTE: Anne GORE who married Richard JACKSON would be a sister of (Rev) Francis GORE. Henry GORE was likely their brother. Their sister Elizabeth  married Samuel COX.

The dots are already starting to connect. Elizabeth Tiffin first married a Col. Francis Gore, and then after his death, a John Sale. In her first marriage, she has sons Henry Gore and Francis Gore. A Speer family tree on rootsweb mirrors much of that I have found through deeds about Col. Francis Gore. As in other trees, it shows that Col Francis Gore (d. 1728) was an uncle of Sir Nathanial Gore (1692-1737).

ROD: 109-354-76168. 1743 Mar 24.
Ann JACKSON of City of Dublin widow of 1 pt & Catherine SALE of City of Dublin widow of Edward SALE Esq edc’d doctor of Laws. Ann JACKSON in consid of  £443 to her paid by the said Catherine SALE did make over land known by the name of Sandymount Park cont 10 acres in Manor of Mount Kennedy Parish & Barony of  Newcastle, Co Wicklow. WITNESS: Henry GORE & Pat DUNN both of City of Dublin Gent. Signed by Anne JACKSON
Kennedy Demesne, Parish of Upper Newcastle, in the Barony of Newcastle

Edward Sale’s death is corroborated by the notice in The Gentlemans and London Magazine or Monthly Chronologer 1741-1794. He probably died in February. At the time of his death he was the Register of the Consistory Court in Dublin and was and was described as T.U.D. In November 1737 in The Gentleman and Citizens Almanack for 1737 , he was Register of the Consistory Court in Dublin and a J.U.D. (Juris Utriusque Doctor - Doctor Both of Canon and Civil Law),

It is Dr. Edward Sale’s leases of 10 acres of Sandymount in Co. Wicklow, which strongly indicate that Anne Jackson nee Gore is the mother of Rev. William Jackson. SEE: Leases mentioning Sandymount Co Wicklow.
1743 Mar 24. ROD: 109-353-76168.
Ann JACKSON of City of Dublin widow of 1 pt & Catherine SALE of City of Dublin widow of Edward SALE Esq edc’d doctor of Laws. Ann JACKSON in consid of  £443 to her paid by the said Catherine SALE did make over land known by the name of Sandymount Park cont 10 acres in Manor of Mount Kennedy Parish & Barony of  Newcastle, Co Wicklow. WITNESS: Henry GORE & Pat DUNN both of City of Dublin Gent. Signed by Anne JACKSON

The deed beneath contains the earliest date that shows Anne JACKSON as a widow. If the birthdate for Rev. William Jackson is accurate – abt 1737, then he was fatherless at a very early age and would likely have been living in Dublin with his mother. Given that his father was Proctor in Dublin, this is a logical location for at least some of his early years.

1740 Sep 3 ROD: 102-223-70490 Whereby Marlborough STERLING granted to Anne JACKSON of the City of Dublin Widow & heirs subject to condition of redemption all that parcel of land known as Sandymount Park Containing 10 acres in Manor of Mount Kennedy & Parish & Barony of New Castle Co.

Next Step: THE PARENTS OF Col. FRANCIS GORE

Bentham’s Abstracts includes notes from the will of Col Francis’ brother Richard Gore of Sligo:

Richard GORE of Sligo Esq.
12 Feb 1752 - 19 Nov 1753
Daughters Anne GORE, Gertrude [?]
Brother Arthur GORE of Ballygarret [(aka Sandbrook, Parish of Ballon] in Co. Carlow Esq. Deceased
Eldest son Richard
Son Francis
Daughter Deborah Baily
Nephews Henry GORE
Brother Col. Francis [GORE]

Other secondary sources also include Francis as a brother of Richard and hence a son of Sir Francis Gore and Lady Anne Parke.

SIR FRANCIS GORE (4th son of Sir Paul Gore, see Earl of Arran) of Artaman, co Sligo Knt. M.P. for that County 1661, lieut-col Chidley Coote’s Regiment of Foot 1660, had a grant of lands in cos Kilkenny, Sligo and Galway, 1660 he married Anne, dau of Capt. Robert Parke of Sligo and of Newtown, Co. Leitrim (she re-m to Percy Gethin Esq. (BART) and d Feb 1713  having had with other issue, 5 sons…. (1) Sir Robert of Newtown Gore … (2) Paul of Corstown, Co. Kilkenny … (3) Francis married _____ dau of Col. Tyffin, and had a son Tyffan. Baronetage and Knightage of the British Empire - 2nd part of The Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage Joseph Foster 1882 ed. (pg. 264-266)


Although in this pedigree he is not identified as Col Francis Gore, the fact that his wife is identified as a daughter of Col Tyffin  completes the puzzle..
NOTE: The deeds work does not corroborate the allegation in the Baronetage and Knightage that Col Francis Gore had a son named Tyffan, but Bentham’s Abstracts mentions a grandson named Tiffin Gore, son of Rev. Francis GORE.
Francis GORE St. Patricks Close Co. Dublin 13 July pd 1 Mar 1763
Wife Margaret GORE ors Powell
Mother Elizabeth Sale ors GORE widow of John Sale
Son-in-law Samuel Cox
Daughter Elizabeth Cox wife of Do
Sone Tiffin GORE
Daughter Catherine Marks

A map of Co. Leitrim shows where the various brothers and cousins of Col. Francis Gore had holdings in Co. Leitrim





Although the property that Col. Francis Gore passed on to his sons in Co. Leitrim seems to have come from the dower of his mother Anne Parke, his Gore relations obviously had been landlords in surrounding parishes.His father was an officer in Lieutenant-Colonel Coote's Regiment, so it is worth noting that there was more than one Coote-Gore intermarriage attesting to the closeness of the Coot and Gore families.

 In spite of the land holdings in Co. Leitrim passed on to the sons of Col Francis Gore, his father is most often associated with Artaman, Co. Sligo. Like most of the Gores, he held land and had political connections to more than one county. His eldest son Sir Robert Gore picked up most of the Co. Leitrim holdings with his third son Col. Francis Gore scoring leaner pickings,

Chidley Coote held several leases in Co. Leitrim. This adds to the circumstantial links of other family connections.
