Her father is called Gareth Jones! So it would appear that Felicity is at least half Welsh.

she has stated:
“My dad’s family is Italian and we always had Italian food at my grandmother’s house (she died six years ago). She used to cook urns of minestrone soup and when people dropped by they’d be given a ladle of soup and some bread”

Hi Follers. Would you mind giving me some dates and locations on some of her ancestors, if you know any, or link me to your source? I can’t get any foothold on her ancestry whatsoever at the moment. No trees for any of the ancestors mentioned as far as I can find.

Not necessarily, Jones can also be an English surname, or Irish.
