There's a report of George Henry Jones (junior)'s funeral in the Dublin Evening Herald of 30 June 1926. Amongst those who sent wreaths were his sister Effie Erskine, sister and brother in law "Mr and Mrs Hodges" and nephews Noel and Sandy Hodges.

A Tree has;
GEORGE HENRY Jones birth 18 MAY 1827
Parents THOMAS HENRY Jones 1795 and Anne PERCY of Corduff 1805-1870

Thomas Henry Jones born 30 DEC 1795 Masulipatan, India
Parents Theophilus Bolton JONES 1788-1850 and Anne Frances SWAIN born c 1788 died 27 Nov 1869 Rathgar

SOMETHING VERY WRONG HERE*** look at dates

Anne born Ireland to George PERCY and Anne LAWDER


My research so far;

On Familysearch I can find 2 children to them;

Henry Bottan Jones
India Births and Baptisms, 1786-1947
christening: 20 June 1823   Madras, Madras, India
residence:      Madras, India   
father:   Theophilus Bottan Jones
mother:   Anne Frances

Eliza Jones
birth: 29 March 1829   
christening: 9 December 1835 Bangalore, Madras, India
Father T B Jones

+ Burial of another possible child;

Theophilus B. Jones
India Deaths and Burials, 1719-1948
birth:   1826   
death:   17 December 1853   Bombay, India
burial:   17 December 1853   Malligaum, Bombay, India

+ Marriage of a Daug;
15 Apr 1857
Event Place Dublin South, County Dublin, Ireland
MARY PERCY Jones, Single, to George DEVENISH, Widower
Her Father Theophilus Bolton Jones

12 September 1818   Madras, Madras, India;
Throphilus Bolton JONES to Anna Frances SWAIN

Burials;

Anne Frances Jones
Ireland Civil Registration Indexes, 1845-1958
birth:   1788   
death:   1869 Dublin South, Ireland

Theophilus Jones
Ireland Civil Registration Indexes, 1845-1958
birth:   1788   
death:   1867   Dublin South, Ireland


Also with a bit of googling;

Aberdeen Press and Journal Aberdeenshire, Scotland
30 Dec 1799

ADMIRALTY SESSIONS
daughter of Lient Colonel Max wvll. At Cloverhill, George Percy, Efq; of Corduff, to Mifs Anne Lawder. At Caftel Connel, the Rev. John Lloyd,. to Mfifs Eliza Barclay. Died.] On Sunday fe'ennight. at Wool wich Warren, Mrs Cockburn, wife of John Cockburn

So Irish and likely Military connections.

If I have this right Theobald could be the Brother of Theophilus Bolton Jones 1788-1867 or even a Cousin?

Too late for my brain to work tonight so will sign off after posting this link.
