RN #218 Jones of Shropshire

Sorting through a group of folks with same surname can be daunting.  This is especially true if there are a lot of these folks who share the same surname.  This notebook contains my work on the Jones surname in Shropshire from the time that my own JONES family became connected to this part of the world.  The key areas of connection were:

Lybottwood (Leebotwood)

It begins when Thomas Myddelton told the folks in "Llanvaer" [Llan-Fairdyffryn-Clwyd] not to pay their tithes to the vicar of Llanvaer who happened to be Robert Johnes. [1553-1555]  There are all sorts of JONES families and associated families involved. Including:

More family of Linley, Shropshire - The More Collection (Cat.Ref. 1037)
Wolryche family of Bridnorth (Cat.Ref. 2922)
Pope family - property Leebotwood
