John (JP-1) ap Robert (JO-1) is the next in line among the branches of my JONES family tree. To become a JONES one must have a JOHN among the branches. It was this JOHN (JP-1) of Llynn-Onn who was the one for my family. His wife was Jane Almer (JP-1) who has a distinct family tree of her own.

Robert ap Edward also married a Margaret. She was Margaret Eyton (JO-2) of Rhuabon, Co. Denbigh. He is given as "of Llywn-Onn" and continues the family story of balancing the fence along the border land between Wales and those folks from the other side of the Island.

Edward ap Howel would be the next in line. He is identified as "of Llwyn-Onn", and his wife is Margaret Wyle of Bersham.
Bersham was a border area along Wat's Dyke. Llwyn-Onn of Llanfair was to the west, and Llywn-Onn of Wrexham was to the east. It must have been along these roads that the family managed to survive both the Anglo-Saxon colonization, and the gradual Norman annexation.
