Administrative & Biographical HistoryJane Catherine Radcliffe, the daughter of the Rev W J Radcliffe, left England on 8 September 1866 for the Wesleyan Methodist Missionary Society district of Canton in China to assist in the work of 'training natives for teaching'. She worked at the Girls' Training School in Canton East and also ran women's classes and bible classes. In 1873 she returned to England on furlough but was back in China by 1874 and two years later she opened a school in Virtue Street, East Canton for girls and women.

In the summer of 1878 Radcliffe married the Rev James Jackson, a Wesleyan Methodist Missionary. After an illness in 1879 (which had a significant impact on Methodist educational work in Canton [Guangzhou]) she and her husband left the WMMS and joined the American Church Mission and were involved in the founding of Boone University in Wuchang, China.
