The next Jones grandfather in the family tree was Griffin Jones, Senr. (JV-162). The family had already been in the same geographic area since 1673, but the names of the counties had changed several times. It was now Caroline County; formed 1728 out parts of Essex Co. [also parts of King and Queen and King William Co.s], which was formed 1692 out of (Old) Rappahannock Co., which was formed out of Lancaster Co. in 1656. Lancaster Co. was formed 1651 out of Northumberland and York Co.s . Northumberland was founded 1648 as a hideout for those folks from England who had been run out of the homeland at the close of the English Civil War. [ 1642 - 1649]. My Richard Jones (JS-165) was the first to land 1648.
Well here is Griffin, Sr.! (JV-162)
