The northern counties of England seemed to have less of those with the JONES surname during this period of study. [1066 - 1700]  Lancaster County produced only one record, and that record not occurring until 1640. [Bundle 407/ No. 84 ]  It was Edmund Jones.

The case had to do with the personal estate of William Blomely, Manchester.   The plaintiff  was John Leighe, and the dates would be between 1640 - 1642.  No other legal cases involving the JONES surname was found before these dates.   Anyone out there who has additional information, please post.
