Hugh Jones, Bishop of Llandaff (b 1508, bur 15.11.1574)
Wikipedia ('Hugh Jones (bishop)") reports that "Jones was descended from a family of that name from Gower". Wikipedia also reports that he "married Anne Henson, by whom he had several daughters." Visitation does not show that marriage but shows that Hugh was father of an unnamed son who was father of Thomas. We presume to show as follows but suspect that the connection between Thomas and the Bishop was speculative and incorrect.
