Born in Ipswich in 1816, the son of a printer, George Jackson was married at St Matthews Church in Gosport in 1867. He painted in watercolours and recorded scenes of shipping and small boats. He may have been a naval chaplain or possibly part of the clergy of St Matthews Church (built 1845, demolished in 1955).
