In spite of the impressive array watches, rings, thimbles, plate-ware, coffee, tea, and chocolate pots, inkwells, tankards, jugs, tureens, candlesticks, buckles, cutlery, cruets, and even a watch, Jackson’s business appears to have been short-lived, at least at this address. It is possible that the is the same John Jackson, whose maker’s mark is first recorded in 1697 and who may have been working at various addresses in London until 1714.
