The Right Reverend Fabian Menteath Elliot Jackson was an Anglican Bishop in the mid 20th century.

Early life and education

Born on 22 November 1902, he was educated at Westminster School and the University of London.[1]

Church career

Ordained in 1927[2] he was successively a Curate at St Augustine’s, Kilburn, Priest in charge at Northolt Park, and Vicar of All Saints, Clifton. His elevation to the Episcopate as Bishop of Trinidad occurred in 1946.[3] He brought with him from England the Reverend Anthony (Tony) Tremlett to serve as his domestic chaplain and chief of staff. Tremlett held the post throughout Jackson's tenure, and remained in office in Trinidad until after Jackson's successor had been appointed. In 1949 Jackson resigned, and returned to England[4] as Rector of Batcombe, Somerset, a post he held until retirement in 1967. He died on 16 July 1978.[5]
