Of  course we can`t prove this Edward is another of "our" Jones family, but it would be interesting   :o
The one who died 1774/1779 described himself as old and weak,  and this event was in 1734.  :-\
It doesn`t say what happened to him.

Wow,
Very very interesting.
I wonder what his punishment was? 'Prays benefit of clergy, to be burned in the hand'
Seems a bit lenient for manslaughter. It say's he was tried twice, is that correct? Could they be tried twice for the same crime in those days.
I've still not found a link lol, but if there is one it would well and truly overshadow any of the other bad ancestors I've uncovered.

Haha, so he might've even got off without getting burnt!!

There's a RIchard Jones baptised 19th August 1771 in Hope his parents are Edward and Margaret. It's a long shot but could it be the young grandson Richard in Edwards will?

Well if he was a blacksmith he was probably used to a few burns.  ;)

Hello again :)

I've just found a possible link for Hannah, wife of William Jones 1791
It's a family on ancestry who have a Harriet Tudor Jones (1861 census living with William and Hannah) and (1871 living with Hannah and son Ezra aged 9).
The Harriet I've found has a mother of called Hannah Reese Jones.
Is it possible our Hannah's maiden name was Reese?
