This upper section was first launched on 08.04.08 as a section of a Temporary page. It was reviewed & expanded there on 28.10.21. It was moved here after further review led to acceptance that there was little chance of our making a significant improvement to it in the near future and that it was 'good enough' to be promoted into the main database.]
Lewis Jones, Bishop of Killaloe (b c1560, d 02.11.1646)
Wikipedia ("Lewis Jones (bishop)"), which identifies Lewis's 5 sons, reports that he married a young wife at the age of 60. She must have been Lewis's 2nd wife as the Wikipedia articles on his sons identify their mother as ...
m1. Mabel Ussher (sister of James Ussher, Archbishop of Armagh, Primate of All Ireland)
3. Henry Jones, Bishop of Clogher then Meath (b c1605, d 05.01.1681/2)
Wikipedia ("Henry Jones (bishop)") gives little information on Henry's family but notes that he married a niece of Archbishop James Ussher, who must therefore have been his cousin, and mentions that he had "several children", mentioning only 1 of them, Mary. Wikipedia ("Michael Jones (soldier)") reports that the heir of Henry's brother Michael was Michael, son of Henry's 1st wife (who was Michael's step-daughter), Mary Culme. We hope in due course to determine whether or not Mary was the Archbishop's niece mentioned by Wikipedia or was a 2nd wife.
