Delaware 1688

The earliest notes from Delaware that reveals a JONES surname is from the "Hall of Records, Dover".  

It list a Griffith Jones as a "JP" on Sussex, Co. records of 1688.  In Jones Journeys, Vol. 5, p.14, the Griffith Jones is given as a son in law of Dennis Cunrade.  Any folks related out there?  The Dennis Cunrade (Tennis Kunders) of Germantown, is stated to have this Griffith Jones mentioned in a Cunrade will, MSS HSD Wills folder C.

The "midnight ride" of Caesar Rodney is shown on the figure above.  An interesting history is this ride of July 1776, move over Paul Revere.
