William Jones   will 1714  his parents
 Elizabeth Blight  will 1723 
her parents
 of Surry County, VA


     This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!!  

    In Surry County Va is found the Wills of William & Elizabeth Jones. After seeing the will of Robert Blight (Prince George Co, VA) I believe that this is the connection between our James Jones & Robert Jones Jr of Northampton Co, NC the colonial Attorney General.

1. Robert Jones ca 1678 -
     married Hester

     a. William Jones
     b. Matthew Jones d. prior 1727
     c. Robert Jones Jr.d.1727.
          i. Thomas 
            others.
2. Henry Jones ca 1680 - ca 1739
     married Catherine
3. William Jones ca 1683 -
4. John Jones ca 1686 -
