Text: The Charter School started in 1737. I don`t know if he wa s the first schoolmaster. I rather suspect not (he would ha ve been very young!) Urker was supposedly "bought" in 1760 . It was leased to JACKSON.
The ancestor of this family came from Co. York in Cromwell' s army andwas granted lands in Co. Carlow for his services . This estate called Mount Leinster was sold in 1745 by hi s descendant, George Jackson whosettled at Urker, Crossmagl en, Co. Armagh. George Jackson was master of the Charter Sc hool (Lisgolat House + 1/3 story) NOTE: Blin's notes say "T he Jacksons came to Ireland with Cromwell (or so grandfathe r believed) & were given large grants of land in Co. Carlo w & Kilkennycalled Mount Leinster, (Bonis). This estate wa s entailed. George Jackson sold out his interest in it & ye ars afterwards came to Creggan to teach the Charter Schools . This George Jackson married Margaret(O'Meglochlan) said t o be descended from the Royal House of Tara.
Another version - he came to Creggan & then married Margare t.

George Jackson Protestant Lisgallot, Co. Armagh
Owen Jackson Papist Five Towns, Co. Louth
Richard Jackson Protestant Tullyvallen, Co.Armagh
The map of Crossmaglen shows "Urcher House" and Urcher Lodg e" on the outskirts of the town (approximately 1km from th e town centre). If"Urcher" and Urker" are indeed the same ( and it does seem likely),then the property was on the Townl and "Urcher" which is 494 acres inthe south-east part of Co unty Armagh, in the Barony of Fews Upper, the Civil Paris h of Cregan and the PLU of Castleblayney.
Just to muddy the waters - another family version - in th e HSBCarchives - says "Jacksons from Yorkshire. Fought in Q . Elizabeth's army & were given property in Mount Leinster".

Text: 1755 is the date given in Amy LLOYD's records, but the dioc esan records show 1743 - which would be a better fit.
