Brandon Jackson (priest)

Brandon Donald Jackson was Dean of Lincoln during a very acrimonious period[1] in the late 20th century.[2]

He was born on 11 August 1934 and educated at Stockport School, where he was Head Boy, and Liverpool University. Ordained in 1962, after Curacies at Christ Church, New Malden[3] and St George's, Leeds[4] he became Vicar of St Peter, Shipley and then provost of Bradford Cathedral. During his turbulent years at the Lincoln Deanery he was acquitted by a Consistory Court of sexual misconduct.[5]
