William Henry Jackman (1865-1908), Catholic priest, was born at St. John's, Newfoundland, on 20 October 1865, the son of Bridget (Barbridge) and William Jackman. He died at the residence of his aunt, Mrs. Smith, Patrick Street, St. John's, on 16 July 1908. He is buried in Belvedere Cemetery.

Jackman was a resident student in St. Bonaventure's College, St. John's (1881-85).

He transferred to St. Patrick's College, Carlow, Ireland (1889-93). Jackman was ordained a priest in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, St. John's on 30 November 1893, by Thomas Joseph Power, Bishop of Diocese of St. John's.
