Jones's of Newmarket + descendants
« on: Saturday 02 January 10 18:09 GMT (UK) »
whilst researching my ancestrors , the things I've been using are an uncle's research, and a little notebook written by my g-grandfather around 100 years ago. The notebook was annotated by my grandfather , and i've found of late that a couple of things don't connect as thought ( generations mixed-up) . The following isn't strictly relevant to my ancestry, but I'd like to someone, if possible to help me connect the following :

1st generation (all born in Newmarket, Flintshire , children of Peter and Anne Jones)

Robert ( 1807) , William (1814) , Owen (1816 - 1855) , Jane (1809 ) , Anne (1811)
They were the siblings of my g-g-g -grandfather)

2nd generation
Son of one of the above ( probably William):  John Jones (m Catherine )

3rd generation
John Jones  (b 18 dec 1856 ) , son of John and catherine

4th generation
Stanley Jones ?

The names I have for various dwellings (i'm not sure whether they refer to houses, streets or hamlets) are ' Wrth y ffynon' Newmarket , Pen-y_ffordd (Holywell) and Tan-Y-Fynwent (?)

I'f anyone acn tell me anything at all about the above , I'd be grateful.

The Parish Register transcriptions (by Clwyd FHS) confirm the births and baptisms of Peter, Jane and Anne, and reveal that father Peter was a miner. (Dates if you want them)

There's also a marriage on 21st December 1803, between a Peter Jones (otp) and Ann Owen (of Holywell).

Beyond 1812 a visit to the archives would be needed to sort out the others.

Regarding the properties;
There is, or was, a house called "By the Well" in Trelawnyd, but I can't recall exactly which one it was, except that it was near to what used to be the village pump.
"Tan y Fynwent" is still there; obviously near the churchyard.
"Pen Y Ffordd, Holywell" is another village 3.6 miles to the North East of Trelawnyd, beyond Llanasa.

Holywell is a town and a parish.
Ffynnongroyw is a village in the parish of Llanasa.
Llanasa is a village a few miles to the North East of Trelawnyd, and is also a large parish, adjacent to that of Trelawnyd.
Gwaenysgor is a village and parish, to the North West, also adjacent to Trelawnyd.

Finally Trelawnyd. This village and parish was called Newmarket form c1700 to 1954, when the name was changed to Welsh. The new name is similar to various versions that existed before 1700.

He was a minister,later on, born at hollywell.
My mother thinks he had brothers called Alun, Edmund ? , and a sister called Catherine.
I might well have placed him in the wrong 'branch' .

Hi,

I found a postcard from about 1910 or so. I believe it to be from a woman named Edith Jones- The address to me looks like it says Tan y Fynwent or Tan y Tynwant (though i think its the former) in Newmarket. I think I am related to her in some fashion- but have never been able to find our why or how...Perhaps that name might ring a bell?
