(Gwladys) Victoria Mary Jones (1900-1963)

Victoria was born on 16 November 1900. In 1939 she was resident, private governess in the household of John (an Estate Foreman) and Eveline Williams at Gwaynyrog Lodge, Denbigh, for Audrey Jeff (b 1934), an incapacitated student and possibly for another person (record officially closed in the Register). Victoria married late in life; Gwladys V M Jones married Howard Wilson [Ruthin 1951, 1st qt]. She was Gwladys Victoria Mary Wilson of 43 South Drive, Rhyl, Flintshire, and she died on 27 November 1963 [St Asaph 1963, 4th qt]. Probate was granted to her husband, Howard, a retired optician.

Albert Jones (1902-1979)

I had been told that Margaret and Garmon Jones had a son, Albert Jones, described as a very nice man, who married Elizabeth (Betty), they had a son Gareth Jones who was in the merchant navy and a daughter Eryl Jones who lived at Rugby. In addition, Albert was a chauffeur and then worked in munitions during the war, after which he managed a garage in North Wales. Lastly I was told that Betty died in about 2001.

The evidence shows that Albert Edward E Jones was born on 9 November 1902 [Bangor] and he married Elizabeth Jane Williams [Bangor 1929, 2nd qt]. She had been born on 10 September 1909 at Trevor, Llanaelhaearn Carnarvonshire, to William, a granite settsmaker in 1911, and Jane Williams, living at 4 New Street, Trevor, in 1911. In 1939 Albert was a private chauffeur, living at 13 Newborough Street, Caernarvon, with John G Jones (perhaps their sone was (John) Gareth Jones), born on 28 August 1935 and John E Williams, an invalid, born on 8 July 1915. I believe Albert was an ARP Warden in WWII. The only additional information I have is trivial but may concern Betty; the Caernarvon & Denbigh Herald, 21 Apr. 1944 reported that "Mrs. Jones, Newborough Street" won a prize at a fund raising whist drive for "Salute the Soldiers Week".

I believe Albert died, aged seventy-seven [Chester and Ellesmere Port, Dec 1979] and Betty, aged 92 [Hereford, Oct 2000].

Incidentally, Margaret Jones, widow of 13 Newborough Street, Caernarvon, died on 10 November at Gwastadfdes Waenfawr, Carnarvonshire, and probate was granted to reverend Robert Williams (Waunfawr is a village about 6 km SE of Caernarfon). This might have been Albert's mother but it seems unlikely.
