George, his wife Marie, and their twin sons Gary and Little George later moved into number 10. The Jackson family's tenure on the close was short lived as George was wrongly convicted for a Warehouse Robbery. George was incarcerated and Marie began an appeal to get him out of prison.
However, George's appeal proved fruitless and he remained in prison, forcing Marie and the boys to leave the close in 1985. Billy Corkhill then bought the house and moved in with his family.
