Another John Jones it is. The name appears in case bundle 99/ no. 68 for the years 1558 - 1579. The case involves a "Robert Bastarde" with the reason given "Blandford Forum". A number of cases involving a John Jones of Lyme Regis follows for the years 1558 - 1603. I suspect that this is the same fellow, but it may be another. A Rowland Jones and a William Jones also appear around the same time period [1558 - 1603] and may be related. The Dorset sheep and their wool were a major activity during this time. Those from Wales would know all about the wool and sheep business.
