" Annals and Antiquities of the Counties and County Families of Wales,

Richard I or any of the Knights of St. John, stands remotely enough to
satisfy the most ambitious of ancient lineage of Johnes of Abermarlais.

The ancient sept of which this house was an offshoor is still represented at
Dinaflewr, but the family which so long possessed Ambermarlais under the
above name descended from John ap Thomas ap Gruffydd ap Nicholas, and became
extinct in the seventeenth century. Into the shadowy land of Urion Rhegrd
and King Arthur, whence it is usual to fetch the beginnings of this great
house of Jones.

Sir Thomas Johnes father was Nicholas ap Philip was grandson of Eldyr Ddu,
and his son was Gruffydd ap Nicholas, of Newton and a grandson of Gruffydd
ap Nicholas, and brother of Sir Rhys ap Thomas, was John ap Thomas ap
