Wickhamford: 1622-1643 – John Jones

John Jones was recorded as Wickhamford Vicar by 1622 and served there until 1643.  He was buried in the Churchyard in 1648, so must have resigned five years earlier, although he is described in the register as “Mr John Jones, Minister”.

From the baptismal registers, it would seem that John had at least three children, Mary, Hester and John, born in 1632, 1636 and 1639 respectively.  The burial registers record a Katherine Jones dying in 1630 and a Hester Jones dying in 1638.  Parish registers of this period were often poorly maintained, if at all, so this may not be a complete record of his family.
