Jones — from Anglesey, North Wales. also refers to a Captain Jones who was a Master on a ship that sailed from in the 1800’s. Apparently his daughter, (my G.Grandmother) was born at sea.

yet to trace these records.

— from a farm Dol Llech which is on the Nant-Y-Benglog, Capel Curig, Gwynedd, Wales.

I’ve traced the back to the 1770’s at this but family tales state we date back 600 years in the farm. Unfortunately Welsh pre-1700’s seem quite to follow (even with the of the Welsh language :)

Williams also from the above Dol Llech 1770 —
