Brandon Donald Jackson (11 August 1934 – 29 January 2023) was a British Anglican priest who was Dean of Lincoln during a very acrimonious period[1] in the late 20th century.[2]

Jackson was born in Stockport, Greater Manchester,[3] and educated at Stockport School, where he was head boy, and Liverpool University. He was ordained in 1959. After curacies at Christ Church, New Malden,[4] and St George's, Leeds,[5] he became vicar of St Peter's Shipley and then provost of Bradford Cathedral. During his turbulent years at Lincoln Cathedral he was acquitted by a consistory court of allegations of sexual misconduct.[6]

Jackson died on 29 January 2023, at the age of 88.[7]
