Thomas Jones is the first to find his name among the legal records of Norfolk. [bundle 100/no. 30] The dates of the records are 1558 - 1579. The plaintiff is listed as "mayor, King's Lynn". The reason is the chapel of St. James King's Lynn. Not sure of what all this means, but it would appear to do with some type of religious reasons. There were certainly a lot of religious conflicts underway during this period of time. Does anyone know additional information?
