Now moving to the eastern side of the Island is Lincoln County. The first with the surname JONES is a female.
Constance Jones is her name. The date is 1551 - 1553, and involves a "Robert Alen". A "messuage" [a dwelling house with the adjacent buildings and courtyard and the adjoining land used in connection with the household] in "Sterlying" and "Bourn" is the issue. This land is listed as "late of Adam Arnolde, dec'd father of complainant". [Bundle 1304/ No. 50 - 53 ]
There is a "John Jonson" found in 1538. [Bundle 1016/ No. 58 ] This spelling may have become Johnson, but maybe even Jones. No clear direction can be found. So...Constance Jones is the first with the actual spelling JONES.
