Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bill Caddick's The Writing of Tipperary
One problem is the name; 'Jack' is usually short for John, but not necessarily: in the case of one of my grandfathers it was apparently short for Albert (!)

Nevertheless, there is a John T Judge in the 1881 census, born c.1873 in Worcester, living with his family at Wolverhampton; his father, also John, is shown as having been born in Ireland. Not necessarily the right people, of course, but it is presumably possible.
