Thomas Jackson of Durham matriculated at Queen's College Oxford but transferred to Corpus Christi College Oxford the following year (B.A. 1599, M.A. 1603, Fellow 1606, B.D. 1610, D.D. 1622); he was Vicar of St. Nicholas, Newcastle-on-Tyne (1623), Rector of Winston, Durham (1625), chaplain to Neile, bishop of Durham, chaplain in ordinary to the king, canon of Winchester (1635), and Vicar of Witney, Oxford (1632). Jackson returned to Oxford as president of Corpus Christi College (1630-40) and was dean of Peterborough (1639-40). Anthony Wood confuses him with a different Thomas Jackson (d. 1646).
