Origin, Meaning, Family History and Jones Coat of Arms and Family Crest

Meaning, Origin, Etymology
The surname of Jones is an English and Welsh name meaning the ‘son of John’ or ‘John’s son’  In Ireland the gaelicized name is Mac Seóin. The name itself gains its origins from the roots in Christianity and comes from the personal name of John or Jone which is derived of the Latin Johannes, meaning “Yaheweh is gracious”.  The name is popular in England but is predominantly held by people of Welsh extraction due to the overwhelming use of patronymics in Wales from the 16th century and the use of John as a name at that time. It is needless to remark that Jones is the most characteristic of Welsh surnames, being especially frequent in North Wales, where one out of every seven persons is thus named. Having occupied the English counties on the Welsh border in great force, the Joneses have advanced on the metropolis from their home in North Wales, and after founding colonies era route, in Northamptonshire and Bucks, they have pushed on to the shores of Essex and Kent. In the counties north of Lincolnshire and Lancashire Jones has not been able to obtain a footing.  The phrase ‘Keeping up with the Joneses’, which originated in a 1913 American strip cartoon, gathered strength during the decades after World War II, with the new prosperity and subsequent proliferation of snobbery. The most remunerative British television contract was signed in 1968 by the singer Tom Jones, with ABC-TV of the US and ITV of London, for a reported £9 million. It stipulated that Jones was to appear in 17 one-hour shows each year between January 1969 and January 1975-just under £90,000 an hour. The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index measures the rise and fall of stocks and shares on the New York and American stock exchanges. It was instituted in 1896 by Charles Henry Dow and Edward D. Jones, former financial journalists who together, in 1882, founded the Wall Street firm of Dow Jones and Co. The British equivalent is the Financial Times Share Index. ‘On your Jack Jones’ is Cockney rhyming slang for ‘on your own’. .  There are no Jones-related towns or major geographic features in the United Kingdom.

ENGLISH ORIGINS OF NEW ENGLAND FAMILIES, VOL. III – GENEALOGICAL NOTES EXCERPTED FROM OUR ENGLISH PARENT TOWNS
Thomas Jones, tailor, of Caversham, Oxfordshire, aged 36 years, with his wife Ann and four children, came to New England in 1638.  He was not the Thomas Jones of Dorchester, as the latter was here in 1635. He was the father of Abraham Jones of Hull, who in 1658 sold to Daniel Cushing land in the plain neck, Hingham, given to him by his father Thomas Jones. (Suffolk Co. Deeds, iv, 129.) Abraham Jones in 1657 had seven sons, Benjamin, Thomas, Abraham, Josiah, Joseph, John and Ephraim.  (History of Hingham, 11, 386.) The land was granted by the town to Samuel Ward in 1637, and by him transferred to Thomas Jones in 1638. (Suffolk Co. Deeds, iv, 279.) Robert Jones appeared in Hingham in 1637. It is probable he was a relative of Thomas; if not, he came from the same vicinity in England. 4 Dec. 1646, “Elizabeth Curtes & Jane Curtes granted unto Robert Jones of Hingham their father in law a Ire of Attur to aske of the executor of the last will of Jane Alexander late of Reading in Oxfordshire deceased their severall & respective Legacies given them by the last will & testament of the said Jane Alexander their grandmother of the Receipt: also to compound & to appear; thereto required & generally to doe all thing.  witness their hand & seales.”

JONES, AVONIA (1839-1867), actress, daughter of George, count Joannes, and his wife Mrs. Melinda Jones, was born at 43 Barrow Street, subsequently Washington Place West, New York.  Her first appearance on the stage took place in 1856 at Cincinnati, for the benefit of E.L. Davenport, when she appeared as Parthenia in ‘Ingomar.’ She visited England twice if not thrice between 1862 and 1867, and made her first appearance in London at Drury Lane as Medea in an adaptation from the French of M. Gegouve.  She was then announced as from Australia. In 1862-3 she was at the Adelphi, where she took the character of Janet Pride in Boucicault’s play of that name, and appeared in August 1862 as Adrienne Lecouvreur. At the surrey in 1865 she played Lady Isabel in ‘East Lynne.’ Leah and the heroine of an adaptation of Charles Reade’s ‘ Griffith Gaunt’ were played by her in the course of an English engagement which included Manchester and other country towns.  She was in Dublin in October 1866. In Manchester she appeared as Leah within three months of her death. She married Gustavus Vaughan Brook, whom she met at Drury Lane and probably in Australia. She died in New York on 6 October 1867, and was buried in Mount Auburn cemetery, Boston. Pleasing in face and figure, she was a moderate and rather statuesque actress, with a musical voice and some tragic capacity marred by a tendency to declamation.

JONES, BASSET (1634-1659), physician and grammarian, born about 1616, was son of Richard Jones of Michaelston-super-Ely, Glamorganshire, by Jane, daughter of Thomas jBasset of Miskin in the same county.  He apparently entered Jesus College, Oxford in 1634. Afterwards he travelled on the continent, studied physic and chemistry, and probably took a medical degree as he is generally described as ‘doctor’. After his return he published a Latin tratise entitled ‘ Lapis Chymicus Philosophorum Examini Subjectus,’ Oxford, 1648.  A shield with his arms and motto (‘Duw ar fy rhan’) appears on the title-page. He seems to have retired in Glamorganshire, for in 1640 he is mentioned in certain articles exhibited against Colonel Phillip Jones as being prepared to supply evidence against him. In 1653 he acted on behalf of his father as lessee of a part of the manor of Wrinston in the county of Glamorgan and petitioned Oliver Cromwell for its recovery from Colonel Jones.  A statement of the case was subsequently published under the title of ‘The Copy of a Petition…,’ London, 1654. Jones owned land in Breconshire also, being lord of a part of the manor of Penkelly. While in retirement he wrote a work on grammar, recommended as containing ‘much rationality’ by William Dugard, head master of the Merchant Taylors’ School. Its title is ‘Hermaeologium; or an Essay at the Rationality of the Art of Speaking, as a supplement to Lillie’s Grammar, Philosophically, Mythologically, and Emblematically offered by B.J., London, 1659.  In a Latin address at the end, signed ‘Basset Joanesius,’ the volume is dedicated to the master and professors of the university of Franeker in Holland, where probably he had previously been a student. he seems to have been author of an ‘englyn’ inscribed on a mural monument in the church of Michaelston-super-Ely to the memory of his father who died 21 April 1658.

Jones Coat of Arms Meaning

The four main devices (symbols) in the Jones blazon are the pheon, griffin, fleur-de-lis and lion. The three main tinctures (colors) are vert, azure and or .

The deep green colour that is so often observed in heraldry is more properly known as vert. According to Wade, the use of this colour signifies “Hope and Joy”, but may also represent, rather delightfully, “Loyalty in Love” 1The Symbolisms of Heraldry, W. Cecil Wade, George Redway, London, 1898 P36. It has other names also, the French call it sinople, perhaps after a town in Asia Minor from where the best green die materials could be found 2A Glossary of Terms used in British Heraldry, J.H. Parker, Oxford, 1894, Entry:Vert. More fanciful heralds liked to associate it with the planet venus and the precious stone emerald 3Boutell’s Heraldry, J.P. Brooke-Little, Warne, (revised Edition) London 1970, P 27. More strangely, there is some evidence that the term prasin was anciently used, being the Greek for the vegetable we call the Leek!

Azure is the heraldic colour blue, usually quite a deep, dark shade of the colour (there is a lighter blue that sometimes occurs, known as celestial azure). If colour printing is not available then it can be represented by closely spaced horizontal lines in a scheme known as “hatching” 4Boutell’s Heraldry, J.P. Brooke-Little, Warne, (revised Edition) London 1970, P 26. The word is thought to originate from the Arabic lazura and it represents the colour of the eastern sky. It is also said to be the colour associated by the Catholic Church with the Virgin Mary and hence of particular significance 5The Symbolisms of Heraldry, W. Cecil Wade, George Redway, London, 1898 P150.

The bright yellow colour frequently found in coats of arms is known to heralds as Or, or sometimes simply as Gold.6Boutell’s Heraldry, J.P. Brooke-Little, Warne, (revised Edition) London 1970, P 27. Along with, argent, or silver it forms the two “metals” of heraldry – one of the guidelines of heraldic design is that silver objects should not be placed upon gold fields and vice versa 7A Complete Guide to Heraldry, A.C. Fox-Davies, Bonanza (re-print of 1909 Edition), New York, 1978, P85. The yellow colour is often associated with the Sun, and the zodiacal sign of Leo.8Understanding Signs & Symbols – Heraldry, S. Oliver & G. Croton, Quantum, London, 2013, P53.

Given the martial nature of the origins of Heraldry, in the identification of knights and men-at-arms it can come as no surprise that mediaeval weaponry of all types are frequently to be found in a coat of arms 9Boutell’s Heraldry, J.P. Brooke-Little, Warne, (revised Edition) London 1970, P 89. The pheon is a specific type of arrow head with barbs and darts and hence quite distinctive in appearance. 10A Glossary of Terms used in British Heraldry, J.H. Parker, Oxford, 1894, Entry:Pheon Like the other symbols related to arrows, Wade suggests the symbolism is that of “readiness for military service”. 11The Symbolisms of Heraldry, W. Cecil Wade, George Redway, London, 1898 P111

In the mediaeval period there was no real percieved difference between real and mythical animals, after all, much of the world remained unknown and who was to say what strange and magical creatures existed in distant lands? As heraldry developed a whole menagerie of imagined creatures 12Understanding Signs & Symbols – Heraldry, S. Oliver & G. Croton, Quantum, London, 2013, P164 came into being, and their various representations became more or less standardised in form and appearance. The griffin is perhaps the most common of these creatures, being a chimera with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. 13A Glossary of Terms used in British Heraldry, J.H. Parker, Oxford, 1894, Entry:Griffin. It is most often in the pose known as rampant segreant, on its hind legs with claws and wings extended. Vinycomb has much to say on the subject of the griffin, perhaps summarised in his belief that it represents “strength and vigilance”.]14Fictitious & Symbolic Creatures…in British Heraldry, J. Vinycomb, Chapman & Hall, London, 1906, P150

The fleur-de-lys (“flower of the lily”) has a long and noble history and was a symbol associated with the royalty of France even before heraldry became widespread. 15Boutell’s Heraldry, J.P. Brooke-Little, Warne, (revised Edition) London 1970, P 3. The Lily flower is said to represent “Purity, or whiteness of soul”16The Symbolisms of Heraldry, W. Cecil Wade, George Redway, London, 1898 P134 and sometimes associated with the Virgin Mary. The fleur-de-lys is also used as a small “badge”, known as a mark of cadency to show that the holder is the sixth son of the present holder of the arms 17A Complete Guide to Heraldry, A.C. Fox-Davies, Bonanza (re-print of 1909 Edition), New York, 1978, P489
