Relationship to Philip Holland

John and Catherine (Lloyd) Jones were my Great-great Grandparents.

William and Ann Ellison were my Great-great Grandparents too.

John Jones son John Lloyd Jones married William and Ann's daughter Harriet Ellison and they were my Great Grandparents.

John Lloyd Jones son John William Jones married Lucy Grubham from Doddenham, Worcestershire and they were my Grandparents.

There daughter Doris Eliza Jones married John Edward Holland and they were my mother and father.

John Jones was a Head Gardner and obviously taught his son John Lloyd Jones all about gardening. John Lloyd Jones is seen on some of the marriage certificates of his children as a Gardener / Landscaper.

The parents names were John Jones and Catherine Lloyd. I have wondered if at first they were not married and that Lloyd was the name of his mother and that is where he got his middle name from. This would have been the same for his elder sister Katherine Lloyd Jones. After this they probably married. Perhaps Katherine had been fostered originally.

1851 Census R.G.107/1995
Calverhall, England.

John Jones (Lodger)
Age: 23
Occupation: Gardener
Born: Ruthen,
Denbighshire, Wales.


Here John Jones is living at the Boat House. It gives his occupation as gardener, he was probably a gardener at Calverhall. All the following Census' show him as Gardener on that Estate.

John Jones was the Gardner at Cloverley Hall Estate and in later Census' he is entered as either Head Gardener or Forester. In this census it gives his birth place as Ruthen, in 1861 he says Tranorchick but all others after that say Tremeirchion.

At Calverhall Church we found a gravestone with Thomas Lloyd, beloved son of John and Catherine Jones of Cloverley, who died 6th September, 1854 aged 2 years. Below this inscription was one to Lizzie, their daughter. We could not read any more information as it had all crumbled away. Perhaps Lizzie was the Elizabeth in the 1861 census.

My Grandfather, John Lloyd Jones was Christened on the 22nd November 1857 at Calverhall, Shropshire.
