Anthony Jones is first noted in Flowerdieu Hundred in 1624. Anthony Jones later transported in 1635 Ruth Anglin, Brinkley Michaild, and Jonathon Aram. Anthony Jones patented 500 acres on Pagan Point Bay, on the north side of Pagan Point Creek in 1635, and another 100 acres in 1636.
Anthony Jones and Richard Death were the Burgesses of Isle of Wight in 1639 and again in 1642-43. [Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol II, p. 99; and 1 Henn, p. 244} Anthony’s land lay on the southernmost point of Cross Creek next to William Smith’s land, and the land of Tristram Norsworthy, Nicholas Smith and Captain John Upton. In 1637 in the High Court of Admiralty there was a suit Hutchinson versus Richard Bennett, Anthony Jones and Robert Sabine. John Rosier living at Warrosquoyacke in Virginia, clerk, aged 34 was the witness and the difficulty centered on the handling of Hutchinson’s estate after his death.
