The Jones ancient family history was found in the archives. Jones is a baptismal name meaning the son of Jone or Johan, a very old personal name. Variants include Joneson. This name is of Welsh Descent spreading to England, Ireland and Scotland in early times, and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above countries. Examples of such are a Matilda Jones, of County Huningdontshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273 and a Richard Joneson who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. A Walter Jones, County Somerset, was recorded in 'Kirby's Quest' in the reign of Edward III and a Jane Joneson, of Audlem, was recorded in the 'Wills at Chester', in the year 1594. In the fourteenth century Johan stood for both Johannes and Johanna. This being awkward, the masculine took the form of Jon and the feminine Jone. In Ireland the name is numerous throughout the four Provinces having been introduced from Wales centuries ago. The Gaelic form of the name is MacSeoin.The Jones family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Jones descendants.
