RN #204 JONES Surname Virginia 1609 - 1660

This notebook contains my research into the surname JONES in Virginia from 1609.  It follows the appearance of the surname recorded in Cavaliers and Pioneers, Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants 1623 - 66, by Nugent.  The following shows the first page from this research, beginning with "Elizabeth Joones", servant of Thomas Dunthorne.  The coding system is shown, and the page of reference is recorded.  There were 651 with the JONES surname recorded during this period.

RN #201 Welsh Name Analysis

Welsh names as recorded in history represent a window into the culture and language of this Celtic people.  A particular clan system (family) and  tribal organization is represented  among the names recorded.  This notebook contains my research into this Welsh naming process recorded upon the pages of history.   The alphabet and naming method was analyzed from the names 470's to 790's.  The Welsh language was being formed during this period.  How the name was used and recorded was grouped by its organization. (Spelling and word order.)

There were 355 historic Welsh  names recorded during this period.  Word (name) order was:

"name" ap "name" recorded 161 times = 45%
     eg. Griffith ap Res

"name" "qualifier" recorded 68 times = 19%
     eg, Yevan Gogh

"name" ap "name" ap "name" recorded 63 times = 18%
     eg. Yevan ap Howel ap Kenn

"name" ap "name" "qualifer" recorded 20 times = 6%
     eg. William ap Yevan Lippa

"qualifer" "name" ap "name" "qualifier" recorded 16 times = 5%

There were additional forms and name order.  A detailed chronology of these names, their alphabet, and word order is contained.  My research over many years.

RN #184 Lightfoot Family

The Lightfoot family was associated with my JONES family very early in the English side of the family tree. [Actually the Welsh side that had come to Kent, and the London area, to make its way in this new world of English.]  As a surname, Lightfoot helped separate and identify my branch of the family tree.

Lightfoot (Lyghtfoot, Lyghtfot, Lyghtfote )
     John Lightfoot of Hereford, 18 Feb. 1297 AD, King's clerk
     Robert Lightfoot (late keeper) 18 July 1298 AD
     John Lightfoot of Shrewsbury, weaver, 26 Dec 1463 AD
     George Lightfoot 1567 AD

RN #182 Thomas Joneses

This notebook continues the research documentation of my JONES family.  Crossing the great pond was part of the challenge of my tree climbing.  Thomas Jones was the connection between the Virginia family and the Welsh family. [Living in county Kent.]  A great deal of time was needed to make this connection, but it provided the bridge between the two continents.   On the front of this notebook is the following:
