RN #129 First Name Analysis For JONES

This notebook contains my research analysis of first names that are recorded with the surname JONES.  This research was taken from Cavaliers and Pioneers. [Vol. I - Vol. III] being years roughly 1628- 1732.  There were 884 JONES recorded and each was organized by first name, date, year, county, and sponsor.  The first names were then organized alphabetically by county so that each Virginia county could be study for the JONES surname.  William was the most common (#205).  This was followed by Thomas (#151), then John (#141), and then Richard (#120).  James City/Island had only 1 Jones, whereas Charles City had 66.  A detailed listing is given for the first names used.
