Thank you for those Roy. Looks like London was full of Thomas Joneses at that time! My Thomas Jones must have been a neighbour of the Thomas Jones in the bankrupt directory - they were both in the same street. Mine was a milkman at Rolls Buildings in Fetter Lane, though at some time prior to that he was at Fishmonger's Alley. I know he died in the late 1830's so thanks very much for the lookup.

Oh wow! Yes, it must be! Now I know when he was born. Thanks Kath!

(He came from a town with the wonderful name of Llandysiliogogo!)

Paul, I think your town above is the last part of the town on Anglesey with the full name of

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerwchwyndrobwchllandisiliogogogoch.

(Usually abbreviated to LlanfairPG)

Thanks Andysmum, but in fact he was definitely from Llandysiliogogo, in Cardiganshire.
