JONES in Virginia 1625

On March 22, 1622, roughly 1/3 of the settlers of Virginia were killed. After this suprise attack, the Virginia colony struggled to survive. A census (muster) was taken 16 February 1623, that listed the extent of the attack. Following this, a census (Muster list) was taken January 1624/25. Those who had a surname JONES were abstracted for these two "musters".

The tables to the right give an alphabetical listing of the JONES in Virginia January, 1625. Some had come after 1622, so where not present during the attacks of 1622. When the ages are given, a birth year has been calculated. The name of the ship, and when they arrived to Virginia are also recorded.

The JONES of Virginia, 1625...say hello.
