For SHINKAICHI - Welshpool Jones
« on: Thursday 25 August 05 23:46 BST (UK) »
Hi Jackie, Jan, and everyone,
I am also looking into Jones in Welshpool.  I wonder if any of this rings a bell?!  ....
Elizabeth Evans (born c1785) married Morris Jones (bap 1776 Ruyton xi Towns) in Welshpool in 1806.  I believe he was mayor of Welshpool in 1843 just before he died.   
They had 4 children all born in Welshpool: 
Eliza Mary Jones (ch 1814),
Harriet Ann Jane Jones (ch 1816, who married Rev John Hudson), 
Morris Charles Jones (ch 1819,who married Elizabeth Paterson),
and Sophia Caroline Jones (ch 1825, who married an Independent minister Rev Henry Kerrison apparently from Shocklach, Cheshire). 
Sophia Caroline Jones was my great great grandmother.   
Are any of these names relevant to anyone?  If so please let me know!!
best wishes,
Rona Wilkins. xx

Hi Rona

Welcome to Rootschat.  I hope you enjoy using the site - it's my favourite!!!!

Unfortunately, your JONES do not ring any bells with me. It is such a common welsh name isn't it? 

I Googled for 'Morris Jones Mayor of Welshpool' and came across this, which I think you will find interesting:

http://www.recyclegen.com/archives/montg_coll/j/jones/j_morris.htm

Jones, Morris
     Father:                  Morris Jones
     Mother:                  Elizabeth Fardo
     Abode:                   Eardiston
                                   Afterwards Welshpool and Gungrog
     Baptised:                March 27, 1776, Ruyton
     Married:                 April 30, 1806, Welshpool
     Wife:                    Elizabeth Evans
     Died:                    December 10, 1843, Gungrog
     Son:                     Morris Charles Jones
     Daughter:                Eliza Mary Jones
                                   m. John Reynolds Ogle
     Daughter:                Harriet Anne Jones
                                   m. Rev. John Hudson
     Daughter:                Sophia Caroline Jones
                                   m. Rev. Henry Kerrison
     Position:                Elected Mayor of Welshpool November 9, 1843
     Source:                  Montgomeryshire Collections
                                   Volume 19
                                   Page 180-81 & 168-69


I thought some of the names looked familiar, and on the same site, I looked for your GG Grandmother Sophia and found this:-

Jones, Sophia Caroline
     Father:                  Morris Jones
                                   Gungrog
     Mother:                  Elizabeth Evans
     Married:                 March 17, 1847, Congregational Chapel,Welshpool
     Husband:                 Rev. Henry Kerrison
     Son:                     Henry William Raffles Kerrison
     Daughter:                Edith Sophia Kerrison
     Daughter:                Florence Mary Kerrison
     Daughter:                Caroline Wynn Kerrison
     Twin:                    Died young
     Source:                  Montgomeryshire Collections
                                   Volume 19
                                   Page 181


I'm off to have a nose round that site to see whether I can find any of my rellies.

By the way, my CHALLINOR line are from Shocklach, Cheshire - what a small world!!

Hi Jan,
Thanks so much for your research.  Funnily enough that is exactly the website that came up when I typed in my g g grandparents names!!  That's where I found out that Morris Jones was mayor of Welshpool!    :)  What goes around comes around!  It is a great website ... I recommend it to everyone!   I have padded out my family tree quite a lot from it, though mainly my Evans lot.  I then increased that tree from looking at censuses and I have found an Evans cousin, all thanks to that website!!!  I hope you find some rellies there too.  Good luck with all your searching,
Rona. xx 
oh and P.S ... if you ever go to Shochlach grave hunting etc, please keep an eye out for any Kerrisons for me as Henry is one of my brick walls!  Thank you!!

Hi Rona

You are very welcome!!!

I have already done the grave hunting trip to Shocklach but need to go back because I have now found out the married names of some of my female Challinor's.

I knew the name Kerrison rang a little bell....................I had an 1861 Cheshire census look up done for me for all my Challinor's from Shocklach and one of the entries was this:

RG9-1891-F98 Green Farm, Cuddington, Whitchurch (which isn't that far away from Shocklach)

Martha Challoner serv 13 House Serv Shocklach Working for a George and Mary Kerrison

If you want the full transcription, Peter Bennett did the look up for me.  You could always put a request on the Cheshire Look up Board and quote the RG reference no.  Mark it for his attention!!!!

Good Luck

Jan
