This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

'Memorials of Edward Burne-Jones' by Georgiana Burne-Jones (vol I (1904), '1833-1867') supports the following ancestry of the artist.
?? Jones (schoolmaster in Hanbury)
m. _ Biven of Hanbury (sister of Edward Biven of Lambeth (a wine merchant))
1. Edward Biven Jones
  m. Mary Edith Alvin known as Edith
  A. Edward Richard Jones of Lambeth then Birmingham (frame maker, "a Welshman")
  m. Elizabeth Coley (d 06.1898)
  i. Sir Edward Coley Burne Jones, later Burne-Jones, 1st Bart (b 28.08.1833, d 17.06.1898, artist)
  Edward formally hyphenated his last Christian name to his family name in 02.1894 having done so informally since about 1885. It is thought that he did so in order to differentiate himself from other Edward Joneses.
  m. (09.06.1860) Georgiana Macdonald (b 1840, d 02.02.1920, dau of Rev. George Browne Macdonald of Wolverhampton) @1@ above
  a. Sir Philip Jones, later Burne-Jones, 2nd Bart (b 02.10.1861, d unm 21.06.1926)
  p. (??) Mary Giles (Mrs. Jones) @2@ below
  Philip is thought to have had an illegitimate child by Mary Jones. See below. Philip had a reputation as a 'philanderer' and is known to have known Mary, possibly originally through a family connection with her husband.
  b. Christopher Jones (b 1864, d infant)
  c. Margaret Jones (b 06.1866)
  m. (04.09.1888) John William Mackail of Kensington (b 26.08.1859, d 13.12.1945, president of the British Academy, professor)
  p. Marie Terphithea Cassavettei ('Maria Zambaco') (b 29.04.1843, d 14.07.1914, dau of Demetrios Cassavetti by Euphrosyne, artist)

Robert Jones (in Bangor?)
1. Mark Jones (b 1850, d 24.11.1906)
  m. (07.06.1879) Mary Giles (b c1852, dau of David Giles)
  A. David Jones, later Burne-Jones (b 1884, d 1952, youngest child) had issue
  It is thought, but has not yet been fully proved, that David (who was brought up by Mark Jones as his son alongside Mark's other children) was his mother Mary's illegitimate child by Sir Philip Burne-Jones (see above). It is thought (but has not yet been fully proved) that David changed his family name to be the same as his natural father and that, rather than leave him with a different name to the rest of them, his elder brother and 2 sisters (2 surviving triplets) changed their name to Burne-Jones also. This is a family mystery!
  m. (c1918) Veilchen Knofe ('Violet Knollys') (b 1900, d 1983, dau of Oscar Knofe by Lilian Mary Sarah Skaife)
  B. Rose Blanche Jones, later Burne-Jones (b 26.12.1883, d 1953)
  m. William Henry Braisty Skaife d'Ingerthorpe (b 23.06.1875, d 02.12.1956)
  Grandparents of Peter Barns-Graham, founder and present proprietor of this site.
  C.+ other issue
  p. (??) Sir Philip Jones, later Burne-Jones, 2nd Bart (b 02.10.1861, d unm 21.06.1926) @2@ above
