Samuel T; and William T (each for his own life and two other lives unnamed). By 1853, the tenants (holding from George Thunder) were Fossy T, Fossy T junr., Thomas T, Esther T and Robert T. There were no Tackaberrys at Ballinasilloge (G.V.)
Abbeydown, P.Moyacomb, barony of Scarawalsh, is right on the Wicklow border. Joh T held a house and some 5 acres there from George Symes in 1853 (G.V.).
An anecdore in Kavanagh's POPULAR HISTORY OF THE INSURRECTION OF 1789 entitled "Generous Act of the Orangeman Thackaberry" describes from hearsay nearly 100 years later how a farmer of this name living in the (Catholic) parish of Blackwater intervened to liberate a priest wrongfully imprisoned by a magistrate at Gorey. a Richard Tackaberry, farmer, of the P. of Ferns, was killed by the rebels at the taking of Enniscorthy, 28 May 1798 (MUSGRAVE, App. p. 115).
