    • From Ancestry of Leona Mae Harris p74+ http://plato.phy.ohio.edu/~drabold/pubs/gen.pdf

      The Jones family of Llanishen is an interesting lot, and we are lucky again to have some Wills. One of these is of John Jones, the father of Ann and the grandfather of Sarah Ann George. John Jones was a Carpenter and Tiler and had an interesting estate including three properties and the unusual possession of a Harpsichord.

      Frankly, I find it a little odd that John Jones possesses a harpsichord and silver spoons, yet scrawls his mark on his Will. John?s wife was Ann Wasley, who he married in Usk, in 1803. Her name is unknown in Monmouthshire at this time, but does occur in Glocs. He had a sister, Elizabeth, who married John Heydon, Gent. in Trellech in 1805 (with whose descendant we have a DNA match). Heydon was later Executor of his Will. Jones owned several properties that can be seen in the tithe maps of the National Library of Wales, including one at Llanishen Cross.

      I have recently (2019) done a lot of work on John Jones. He lived in 1841 in Tregiriog House, the largest farm in Llanishen with other Jones (whose link to our John is uncertain). It is a long story and not yet a complete one, but I suspect that his parents were John Jones of Trellech Grange and Sarah Rawlings of Mitchel Troy (both born in 1739). There is no doubt that somehow John is descended from a long line of Jones in the area, possibly even connected to the 17th century High Sheriff of Monmouthshire (who owned Tregiriog House). I have been buying or borrowing the books of Joseph Bradney on the History of Monmouthshire to try to get better insight. There is much more on my Ancestry site if you are interested.

      Md. 5 May, 1803, Usk, MO
