The Family Bible of John Bowyer Jones, 1808
A large leatherbound Bible, with evidence of a crude repair in it’s long life that would benefit from some basic restoration. A fascinating and beautiful family register makes this one of my favourite stock pieces yet. Containing a family regsiter across two pages detailing the parents and siblings of the John Bowyer Jones written in a number of styles and in total listing 15 individuals with dates ranging from 1815 – 1897 with other un dated individuals extending back into the 1700s. There is no location information in the Bible,but we do know John Bowyer Jones died in Monmouthshire, Wales in 1869.
