Henry Bradwardine Jackson
Cynthia Dillon

Some of the members present at our October 1993 meeting, a question and answer session, may have noticed my ears prick up when Kath Wright, our late membership secretary, said she had been scanning the 1881 Naval Census records for any reference to local men. She had found one Lieutenant, born Barnsley, aged 26, serving in V Agincourt (presumably the V refers to Queen Victoria), one Henry B. Jackson. Members may have noticed my rising excitement when Mr Cooper, a fount of local knowledge, said that he would be Henry B. Jackson, Admiral of the Fleet during the 1st World War and the son of William Jackson of Beevor Hall.

Now, I knew that William Jackson's son Henry, had followed him into the linen trade. I knew, because Henry Jackson had married Jane, daughter of Charles Tee, a branch of my husband's family. However, Henry and Jane had baptised a son, Henry Bradwardine Jackson (Bradwartline according to the baptismal register and Bradwardine according to 'Who's Who'). The last reference I had to this young man was as a scholar, at home at the rectory in Darfield. How did a boy born just about as far from the sea as it is possible to get in England, choose the Navy for his career?

Perhaps it was as well he did, for investigation proved that in the Navy, Henry Bradwardine Jackson rose as high as it was possible to rise. His influence throughout the First World War was immense; The decorations collected a most impressive list; his impact on scientific developments in the Navy no less commendable.

Members may wish to know more of this son of Barnsley of whom they can be justifiably proud. A résumé of his life would read as follows:-

1855 21 Dec Born in Barnsley into a family whose lineage can be traced back to Sir Jno Jackson, Knight of Edwardthorpe (now Edderthorpe) Darfield and Hickleton; c 1580.

I think you might find that the ' V ' Agincourt refers to ' Vessel ' rather than Victoria.
