Richard Jones (JQ-95) The First JONES

Richard ap John = Richard Jones, the first of my Welsh descent to take the surname JONES. 

His code number is JQ-95, which means it took me quite a while to get to this connecting point.  In  Chancery Proceeding (series II), Vol. I, AD 1558-1579, Bundle 104/ no. 165, is the document which identifies this Richard as being of "Llanfair".  Llanfiar - Dyffryn Clwyd is the place of  Llyn-onn where the JONES side of the family would come to reside.  Making this "bridge" connection was one of the most difficult branches to my tree climbing.  What a deal!
