Joseph Jacobson was born in Russian in 1847-9. In the early records of his life he is known as Oskar Jackson. 

By the 1880s he was in London where in 1884 he married Antonia Blaustein, who was born in Hungary. The Middlesex criminal register records that in October 1887 Oskar Jackson and two other men were accused of rape. They were all acquitted. 

Oskar was a Master Tailor. The family are living London at the time of the 1891 census where they were living in Hackney with their son Sami aged 6 and Heriett aged 5. 

By 1900 he has changed his name to Samuel and is registered in the Bath Directory as a tailor at 45 New King Street. The 1901 census records the family living at this address with Harry (Sami) and three daughters, Harriet, Rose and Lena all born in London. 

By 1905 he is doing well enough to have a business at 10 Barton Street and by the 1911 census they are living at 10 Great Stanhope Street where he  continued to live until his death in 1920. 

Antonia died in London in 1930. Samuel (son) married and lived in Wales. Rose and Lena stayed in Bath where they both married and had children. There is no certain information about Harriet.
