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.
