He was apprenticed to James Heath between 1814-1818 and then set up initially as a book-illustrator. He engraved portraits and prints after popular contemporary painters, e.g. Landseer. He fought a long battle to win respect from the Royal Academy as a line-engraver and was eventually elected Associate Member of the Royal Academy in 1856.

After John Jackson (1778 – 1831). Jackson was born in Lastingham, Yorkshire. He came to London in 1804, where he studied at the Academy Schools. He chiefly painted portraits.
