Not really a solution, but it seems that Robert Jones was born 1807 died 1843. So he couldn`t be Owens father.

Hope this link works, it is  a list of his books and things at the Wellcome Museum which is in London.

I`ve tried it and it looks like you will have to `search again` and then enter Robert Jones in the top line. ???.

Hi Katy

I cant find the other note I sent you but I am also researching Owen Jones born Denbigh about 1806 moved to Norfolk and married Lydia Clark on or about 31.1.1831.  Did you come to a decision about his parents? Their 1st son was John (Lydias fathers name) and the 2nd son was Richard Owen, so quite likely to have been his fathers name.  My Mum also thought that the 4th son Robert Samuel Jones (baptised April 7th 1840) was a church minister and possibly in Diss.  Does that confuse the issue?????  We found quite a few Jones gravestones in the Parish Church in Thornham.  We also have only the first 3 children being born in Sedgeford and the others in Thornham.  My 2nd cousin (also researching Jones) said Owen & Lydia are buried in Docking, just a few miles from Sedgefoed and Thornham.  We think O & L had 7 boys and then 1 girl who died in childbirth - we can find no record of her.

Hi Mary  :)

Welcome to Rootschat   :D

It looks as if you and Katy do share a common ancestor. I'm glad that you decided to put this information here. As I said in my PM, it's more likely that you will get a wider audience, information and advice on the thread  :)

Thanks Gadget, it certainly looks like we are looking for the same chap, I'll be interested to see if Katy replies how she fits in to the family.  We 'found' some other 2nd cousins purely by accident when we went to see my Granny's home and they went a couple of weeks later and the chap who lives there put us in touch with each other.  I do find family history research interesting - until we came to a blank looking for an Owen Jones from Wales!!!!  Still looks like we might be able to get further on with that now.

Thanks again Gadget.

Mary

Hi Mary  :)

it would be best if you put that request on the Lanarkshire board:

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/board,102.0.html

or Kent:

Good Luck

Will try that, didn't know there was one - only came across this by 'accident' and thought it was 'country wide'.  As you may have guessed computing isn't one of my better subjects.  Going to look for Lanarks now.

Thanks again :)
