Thomas Jackson (1783-1873), English Wesleyan circuit preacher and editor. He was elected to the chair of divinity in the Theological College at Richmond, Surrey, where he served from 1861 to 1874.

“In 1838–9 Jackson was for the first time chosen president of the Wesleyan conference. A hundred years had just passed since the formation of the first Methodist Society by the brothers Wesley, and Jackson prepared a centenary volume, describing the origin and growth of methodism, and the benefits springing from it (1839). In the centennial celebration he played a leading part, and preached before the conference in Brunswick Chapel, Liverpool, the official sermon, which occupied nearly three hours in delivery. The sermon was published, and had a very large circulation.” - DNB.
