Dedicated to the history, origins, and genealogy of the JONES surname.
Saturday, June 13, 2015
The name John Jones is the first to be found in the legal records of Oxford.
The case is fairly early [Bundle 7/ No.13] which begins 1458. No reasons were listed for the case. Remember, this is for the county of Oxford, and for the University. The first JONES to attend Oxford University is a "Richard Joonys" 1505. I suspect that poor old John is close to 50 years before.
