Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architectural partnership, of Belfast, formed between THOMAS JACKSON  THOMAS JACKSON and his sons ANTHONY THOMAS JACKSON  ANTHONY THOMAS JACKSON and WILLIAM RIDGEWAY JACKSON WILLIAM RIDGEWAY JACKSON . It is difficult to form an accurate picture of Jackson's partnership with his sons from the notices and illustrations of their works in the Irish Builder; the attributions to 'Thomas Jackson & Son' and 'Thomas Jackson & Sons' do not follow a clear sequence and may not always be accurate. It would seem that both sons entered into partnership with their father in 1867 but that Anthony practised independently from circa 1870, probably from 1869 when he designed the new Belfast Town Hall. William remained with his father for several years longer - definitely until 1877, and perhaps as late as 1881 - before emigrating to Australia.
