Information on the Jones Family
Thomas Jones, Sr., Immigrant
Thomas Jones, immigrant, appears in the early "Virginia List of Inhabitants of Pasbehays (or Pasbehaighs) and the Maine" on both the 16 February 1623/24 and 30 January 1624/25 lists, along with his wife, Margaret ("Margrett"). He is named as "servant (to) Bunn" evidently indentured to one William Bunn, who also appears on this list. Likely his origination point was Wales. It is known that all sailed on the London Merchant, the exact date of arrival not known, but probably before 1623/24.
