Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jones is a common Celtic Welsh surname based on the English version of the parent's name ending in -S. In 1881 people with this surname were largely confined to Wales. By 1998 many Welsh people had migrated to cities in England particularly those adjacent to Wales. The earliest record of the name occurs in England, in the late 13th century. The name is derived from a patronymic form of the Middle English personal names Jon and Jone, and thus roughly means in modern English "son of John." Surnames representing John cognate with the late formation Welsh Si n such as Jones and John are particularly common in Wales. The name Jones is extremely common throughout the English-speaking world, especially Wales. In the United States, the name has absorbed many surnames in other languages which have a similar sound, or meaning.show more
