Take a Deep Breath

By now, many of those reading these post would certainly question "how in the world" could anyone claim such a family tree. I have asked myself that very question on many occasions. Each family member has been carefully traced and documented. The major documents for this early part of my JONES family tree are to be found in the following references:

1)Dwnn, Lewys, Heraldic Visitations of Wales and Part of the Marches. Published by for the Welsh MSS. Society, 1846. Genealogies are recorded between the years 1586 to 1613 and transcribed from the original manuscripts by Samuel Meyrick. This reference has been republished, 2005, by Bridge Books, 61 Park Avenue, Wrexham. It is in two volumes, and hereafter referred to as Dwnn.

2)Nicholas, Thomas, Annals and Antiquities of The Counties and County Families of Wales. These records are stated to have been compiled by direct visitation of the counties of Wales, and from reliable and original sources. It was first published in London, 1872. It is in two volumes and has been reprinted by Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1991. Hereafter referred to as Nicholas.

3)Burke, Bernard, The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. First published, London, 1884. Hereafter referred to as Burke.

There are a great number of additional reference taken from The Patent Rolls of England, Anglo-Saxon Charters, The Public Record Office of England, and the Archives of England, and multiple other sources. These will be given as they present themselves through my family members on the Welsh and English side. So take a deep breath, and follow me through the family tree of Tudor Trevor. I will used the coding system presented in a previous post, and start with the children of Tudor Trevor.
