  • Biography
  • Jones held a commanding position, both socially and politically, in Carmarthenshire and Cardiganshire. From 1569 he was on every commission set up by the council in the marches of Wales to deal with Carmarthenshire affairs, and in 1581 he was one of seven commissioners appointed by the Privy Council to inquire into irregularities in the diocese of St. David’s.4
  • On 5 Feb. 1563 Jones complained in the House that six of his servants had been arrested, but his privilege protected him only to the extent of obtaining them bail until the end of the session. Browne Willis’s error in ascribing a Carmarthenshire seat in 1571 to John Vaughan, allows the assumption that Jones sat again. No speeches by him are known for this Parliament but he was appointed to two committees: one for the bill against priests disguised as servants (1 May 1571), the other for the bill concerning the 12 shires of Wales (25 May). His appointment as sheriff in 1573 was unsuccessfully challenged by the Earl of Essex on the ground that he was a murderer and an ‘earnest papist’. As to the latter it is true that he is mentioned on a list of sympathizers drawn up by an adherent of Mary Stuart in 1574, but his having held office through so many religious changes suggests that he had no strong views of any kind. When he came to make his will on 22 Sept. 1586, two days before his death, he left money for St. David’s cathedral and for the repair of Llansadwrn parish church. His household servants received small bequests, his widow an annuity of £100 and his base son, John, an annuity of £6 13s.4d. The will was proved 27 Oct. by his eldest son, heir and sole executor, Sir Thomas Jones.5
