Notes


Aka: de oude" af Danmark


"Stuart's "Royalty For Commoners" (368:32), (369:39). King of Denmark 883-941; King of East Anglia, 905-918; King of Seeland by conquest; and by marriage, of Jutland, c880; opponent of Christianity.


Gwyn Jones' "A History of the Vikings" (p 94), calls him the father of Gunhild. Jones also presents an alternative pedigree for him, calling him the son of Hardegon of Northmannia, who was the son of Svein."


"Gorm, the Old, so called from the length of his reign.


He married the beautiful Thyra Dannebod (Ornament of Denmark), daughter of Harold Klak. They had twin sons, Knud and Harold, rivals in glory. Knud was the favorite of his father, and had been absent sometime, and the King fearing his death had vowed to kill the one that brought the news of his death. Finally the notice of his death was given and the Queen, not risking to tell it to the King, made all the courtiers observe an unusual silence at the table and had the apartment covered with black. Guessing the reason, Gorm cried out: "Surely Knud, my dear son, is dead as all Denmark is mourning." "Thou sayest so, not I." answered the Queen; upon which the King sickened with grief and died in a good old age, in 941."

James JONES "the Immigrant"

ABT 1695 - Apr 1744

ID Number: I44156

Father: (RESEARCH QUERY) of Spots Orange VA JONES


Family 1 : Hester DAVIS
  1. +Joseph JONES of Hanover
  2. +Elizabeth "Eliza" JONES
  3.  Hester JONES
  4.  Blanche JONES
  5.  James JONES Jr.

Notes


Will in King George co. VA 1 Jun 1744. "Probably was known as James Jones of Hanover Parish to distinguish from the other James Jones of that era in King George County. The other James was known as James Jones of Brunswich Parish. James of Hanover was also the maternal grandfather of President James Monroe.


The National Cyclopedia says James Jones was of substantial Welsh and English stock, "undertaker of architecture" and proprietor of an ordinary.


It is not totally clear, but the below legal transactions are believed to be James Jones of Hanover. In March, 1732, the will of Walter Anderson of Hanover Parrish was recorded in King George County Will Book 1-A, page 93. In it he stated that his son Cyprian Anderson was apprenticed to James Jones. James Jones purchased 442 acres of land on Sept. 28, 1734 in Spotsylvania County (p. 134 of Spots County Records]. On November 10, 1743, he probably was the James Jones who witnessed Nathaniel Thomas' will.


James Jones' will was probated in 1744 (Will Book A-1, p. 171-172). He left a son, Joseph Jones (1727-1805), and 3 sisters: Hester Jones, Elizabeth Jones and Blanch Jones. The will identified Hester as his wife. James Monroe, was identified as grandson of James Jones, and he stated his maternal grandfather emigrated from Wales and settled in King George County near the courthouse".


Jones Journeys Vol 18 issue 4, James Jones, The President's Grandfather: From "James Jones of King George Co., VA 1739" by George H. S. King, F.A.S.G., Natl. Geneal. Society Quarterly 1962 p. 46: Mr. Coldham's findings show that George Hatcher, a blacksmith, was transported to Virginia in Jan 1739 and sold for seven years to Mr. James Jones, an undertaker or builder of King George County. Jones died in April 1744 and in Sept. his widow and exr.'s sold Hatcher to Charles Ewell of the same parish.


In his autobigraphy, President, James Monroe (1758-1831), said that he was named for his maternal grandfather, James Jones, who "emigrated from Wales" and settled in King George Co., near the courthouse. Though President Monroe was born after the death of his grandfather James Jones, he was intimately acquainted with his uncle, the Honorable Joseph Jones (1727-1805), judge of the General Court of Virginia. Joseph Jones "son and heir of James Jones of VA, Gentleman, deceased," was admitted to the Inner Temple 7 Dec 1749, migrated to the Middle Temple 2 May 1751, was admitted a Barrister 21 June 1751. Shortly thereafter he returned to Virginia and began a long and interesting career. As an educated man, he must have known his father's birthplace and passed this information on to his nephew and ward, James Monroe.


James Jones of Hanover Parish was described in contemporary records as a bricklayer, carpenter, undertaker (house builder), and ordinary keeper. By purchase and patent he acquired considerable property in the counties of King George, Orange (later Culpeper), and Fauquier. He died testate in 1744 in King George County. His will was recorded in the now-lost Will Book No.1, 17`21-1752. Its provisions, however, are recited in several surviving deeds.


It was presented for probate by his widow and executrix HESTER (or Easter) Jones on 1 June 1744, and there is a detailed inventory of his handsome estate in Inventory Book No. 1, 1721-1744, pages 306-313. Included in the inventory of white indented servants was "a smith, 21 months to serve" and appraised at 8 pounds. This was certainly George Hatcher.


Confirmation of Monroe's statement that James Jones came from Wales is suggested by the names which Jones gave to several of his negro slaves: Glamorgan, Haverford, Pembrooke, Brecknock, and Swansey. Swansea is a port in Glamorganshire, in which are located the towns of Haverford, Pembrook, and Brecknock.
