Name of creator
The Rev. Francis Ernest Llewellyn Jones was a typical clergyman of his day, who combined his pastoral duties with a keen interest in genealogy, philology and antiquarianism, pursuits which he was able to enjoy in his retirement. He was born on 12 August 1883 at Tal-y-bont, Breconshire, to the Rev. John Harris Jones, curate of Llanfeugan, in the same county, and Hannah, his wife (née Francis). On his father's death, the family moved to live at Blackmoore farm, Abbey Dore, near Hereford, the home of Francis's maternal grandparents, Mary and Thomas Francis. Francis was to follow in his father's footsteps, becoming a deacon in 1910, and serving as curate at Pont-y-pridd, Glamorgan, from 1910-1911. He was at Llowes, Radnorshire, from 1911-1914, receiving a licence to officiate in the Diocese of Worcester, 1916-1919, and for the Diocese of Hereford, 1919-20. From 1921-1925 he was given permission to officiate at Penydarren, Glamorgan. He served at St Mary's Cardiff, from 1925-1926, as vicar of Kenderchurch, Herefordshire, 1937-1942, and rector of Ballingham with Bolstone, from 1942 to his retirement from the ministry in 1960. On his retirement, he moved from Ballingham Rectory to live at 25 Grandstand Road, Hereford, a home he shared with his housekeeper and companion, Mrs Catherine Whitney. He died in 1982.
