This notebook contains an alphabetical listing for the JONES surname abstracted from the Committee For Compounding 1643-1660. A copy of a page from my notes is shown below. Family groups are clustered and the counties involved are included. They were classified as a "Papist", "recusant", and "dissenter". A "recusant" was one of the Roman Catholics in England who formerly incurred legal and social penalties for refusing to attend services of the Church of England. A "dissenter" was defined as a non-conformist.
