John Jones, clothier, of High Street, where Mr. Scotcher's shop now is, elder son of Mr. John Jones, of The Linen Hall, husband of Sarah, eldest daughter (see ch. Ill, sec. 62) of the Rev. Wm. Brown ; died Nov. 4, 1826, aged 39, and was buried in the Dissenters' Graveyard.

The Rev. William Browne's three daughters were singularly beautiful. They were called " the Meeting-house bells [belles] ." One of them, whom an uncle or some other relative took to an exhibition of pictures in London, was almost as much looked at as the pictures were.
 The eldest daughter, Sarah, born February 12, 1788, was married (May 22, 1810), to Mr. John
Jones, mercer, of High Street (see Appendix I ., 208), by whom she had several children, one of whom (Miss Sarah Jones, of Bowdon) is still living ; she died March 12, 1820, aged 32, and was buried in the Dissenters' Burial Ground.

Gosh, this has progressed well since yesterday. The Wrexham and  Denbighshire Rootschatters have come up trumps!  :)

Just so I can picture the locations in my mind as I am too far from Wrexham now to go and look, where is/was Queen Street? I know where King Street is, so presume that Queen Street was close to this, is that right?

Where was The Linen Hall? 

I have never heard of a Dissenters' Graveyard in Wrexham, where is it please?

Since I am to be cut in with a share of the Trust if it can be traced, I might well venture back to find it!  ;D

I will see if I can find the children of Edward and Sophia Jones later on.

I imagine the local paper of the time would carry an obituary for Edward's death in 1835. I wonder what else they may contain on the family.

I think that Gary needs to have a trip over for a while!  :D

Jo.

This is the graveyard , it`s in Rhosddu. Stones are laid flat and propped up against the wall.
The monument in the front is for Morgan Llwydd whi is also buried there.

Queen St  in in the area of the Guildhall.

This is a good site.

I wonder if Edward George and his siblings will be in Wrexham 1841.
Worth a look when the Museum reopens.

Edward George didn`t hang about long. :o :o

From Old Wrexham,  a book by Alister Williams published by Bridge Books Wrexham
The caption below this image in the book is ` Queens Square c 1925. Demolished in 1927 to enable the vegetabe Market to be extended. It was one of the March Fair squares.`
