J & A Jackson Ltd was formed through the amalgamation of the businesses of two established brickmaking familes in the Manchester area. The Harrisons had four works around Stockport, whilst the Jacksons operated from three works in Chorlton, Longsight, and Levenshulme. Over the next fifty years the company expanded with the acquisition of works across the north-west and into the west midlands. In 1973 Christian Salvesen acquired the business and in 1995 a management buyout of the brick side of the business saw the formation of Chelwood Brick. Photo and information by David Kitching.

J. Jameson and Son Ltd. of Corbridge adopted this name in 1884 having previously traded as Jameson & Richley (see above). The abundance of clay around the Corbridge area facilitated the growth of the Company so that by the 1960's it was the largest employer in the town with a workforce of approximately fifty people. By the late 1970's a combination of factors - the recession and technological developments by much larger competitors - resulted in the firm being forced into liquidation.

David Oliver writes: Jones and Maxwell established the Pelaw Terra Cotta Works in 1895 just to the west of Monkton Coke works in what is now South Tyneside. By 1911 Jones Brothers owned the yard and developed it into the largest manufacturer of engineering and facing bricks in the North East. It closed in 1968.
