We are related to Sydney Thomas Jones (1871 – 1912). My trees “William Morgan Jones”, “Laura Ellen Jones” “Sydney Jones” & “Glyn Morgan Jones” should fill you in on your ancestors from Wales. Why are there 4? Basically because initially I wasn’t 100% sure that they were all related and then discovered that I couldn’t simply merge the trees. I’ve discovered references to Dugald Taylor in 2 publications. The Handbook of British Honduras 1888 – 89 and also reference to his death in the Edinburgh Gazette which clearly indicates that he died in 1891.
I’m really interested in Sydney Thomas. Do you know what he was doing in British Honduras (Belize)? Whilst some trees I’ve viewed on Ancestry say he died 26 October 1912 in Belize I also have a hospital record giving the same date but the place of death is Valparaiso, Chile! I’m also fascinated by Catherine Flora who, if all the dates are correct, appears to have been married and had her 1st child (Eamy Laura) by the age of 15, which does seem extremely young, even in that day and age.
My late husband was Sydney Thomas’ grandson, he and his father, also Sydney Thomas, were both born and raised in Paris, France.
