    correction; his surname is welsh, and his eyes are definitely not brown

      One thing I will never accept is that every person named “Jones” is of Welsh ancestry. That is impossible.

      What color are his eyes?

        Jones is without a doubt a Welsh name. Either people adopted that name or if not you would have Welsh ancestry somewhere down the line.

        It is more common for a Welsh, Scottish and Irish person to have an English name but English didn’t adopt Welsh, Scottish or Irish names. Some Gaelic or Welsh people had their names anglicised by the British authorities or could have English names due to having an ancestor from England. People that have Welsh, Scottish and Irish names would have ancestors from those countries. Some people in countries like US, Australia have some non-British people that have adopted names like Jones but it is easy to find out.

          Jones is like the most common surname ever. How can you possibly know that English people did not naturally have this surname in the year 1300?

          • Alice says:

            Jones is only common because there was not a great variety in Welsh surnames so a lot of familes were called Jones, Price etc. There was a great divide between the populations of the British Isles in the past. The Welsh spoke a different language as did the Irish and the populations kept very separate. When the English came to Ireland for example it was forbidden for English to mix with “mere Irishmen”. People were very tribal back then. If you knew the history it explains it. It would be like saying a person called Murphy wasn’t Irish.
