Another northern county with a few JONES it is. In 1651, Jeffery Jones is the first to be discovered among the English legal records. [Bundle 397/ No. 74]
The reason for the case is given as "copyhold of manor Thornthwaite". The plaintiff is a Thomas Jackson and the case seems to be to carried forward to 1654 [Bundle 396/ No. 100]. Jackson and Jones is certainly an interesting combination. There are only three cases identified after 1651 - 1700.
Are there any JONES families connected out there...please post a comment.
