There is some discussion as to the origin of the name Brecon. One belief is that a Welsh chieftain named Brychan, who came from Ireland, name the area. The term wg, or og , was used to signify a region, or county. Thus Brychein-wg became the country of Brychan.
Roger Jones is the first of this surname to be found in the legal records.
Say hello to Roger Jones who's father is Roger Evans.
The history of Brecon [Breconshire, Brecknock] can be found in Nicholas, Annals and Antiquities of The Counties and County Families of Wales, pp. 53 - 122.
