Jackson (Ahanesk)

This family was settled at Ballyduff and Glanbeg, county Waterford by the end of the 17th century. By the early 19th century the head of the family, Edward Rowland Jackson, was residing at Castleview, county Cork. At the time of Griffith's Valuation the Jackson estate was located in the parishes of Mogeesha and Little Island, barony of Barrymore, and Kilcorcoran, barony of Duhallow, county Cork. Warren Hastings Rowland Jackson died in 1851. In the 1870s his son, William O. Jackson of Ahanesk, Midleton, owned 3,491 acres in county Cork and 1,052 acres in county Waterford. William's only daughter Cherry married Henry Sadlier of the county Tipperary family and they eventually inherited Ahanesk. In 1850 the house at Glenbeg, county Waterford, and 175 acres, the property of George Bennett Jackson, were offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court.
