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.

Color coding was also used to try and group the folks from the same general green for "within precincts of Eliz. City".

Also, a study into the reference for "Jones' Creek(s)" was done.
