Henry Jackson (b.1802)
Henry Jackson was recommended for the Methodist ministry in 1822 by John Gaulter of the Deptford circuit. He was described as having been 'educated for the military service of his country'.
His ministry lasted until the Conference of 1829 when he 'honourably' retired from the ministry. He had previously been censured and told 'to mend his manners' by the 1825 Conference for 'deficiency in zeal, spirituality and diligence'. His excuse for lack of energy had been the circumstances of his genteel upbringing.
After Jackson left the ministry, nothing more is known.
