Hi

I have checked every entry on both the English and Welsh 1841 census for an Edward Jones b 1828-1830 with a father Edward - all counties

Only about 6 had a father Edward - but none was an architect

If the family where in the Wrexham area, they might not show as most of the 1841 census pieces for that area are missing.

There is a Edward Jones, Architect, shown on this Pigot's Directory for Wrexham dated 1835.

Scroll down to the list of names, there is "Jones, Edwd (and architect) Queen St (surveyors)".

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mossvalley/mv/dir/pigot1835-wrexham.html

The Trade and Commercial Directories for Wrexham should provide more information on the location and years Edward Jones practised as an architect there. These would have existed from the 18th century onwards.

Hello again,

I suspect that Edward Jones, senior, may have left a Will. The Nayional Library of Wales has Wills online and the site is searchable.

http://cat.llgc.org.uk/cgi-bin/gw/chameleon?skin=profeb&lng=en

The local trade and commercial directories are held in lbraries and also the Wrexham Local History Centre. The A.N Palmer Centre.

http://www.wrexham.gov.uk/english/heritage/archives/index.htm

They will do research for you for a small fee. Looking through the directories should be a quick job.

It looks to me that Edward Jones, architect, may have had an established business in the town.

Jo

Quick desipher of digital images:

Edward's  will dated 3 March 1835 was proved 30 April 1835.

  "eldest son Edward" inherits 'part' when he attains the age of 24 years.

 Same condition applies to his other children ( unnamed)

His wife Sophia inherits.

Sophia is quite an unusual name and it should be possible to find her in one census, 1851 if not 1841, even with the common surname of Jones. You might get the children with her too, bearing in mind they were younger than Edward junior.
