The Bower & Collier Family History

Jones Family


Our Jones Family has its roots in the North Riding of Yorkshire specifically the lead mining area of  Reeth, Marrick (including bthe hamlet of Hurst) and Grinton.

When I was researching the Jones Family Tree, I found that someone had published their Jones Family Trees on Ancestry. Some of them included our own family but some of the information appeared to be inaccurate.

I promised myself that I would go back and search for the source of the information.

I summarised some information held on Ancestry and Family Search and listed some of the Family Trees with some Conclusions:


Information from Hurst/Marrick Parish Records etc on Ancestry

Information from Grinton Parish Records etc on Ancestry

Information from Reeth Parish Records etc on Ancestry

Family Search

Burials in Marrick from Family Search

Other Family Trees

Some Other Family Trees from Ancestry


Some Conclusions reached
