Thomas Jones (1729-1762)

Nothing is known of Jones' early life before his matriculation from King's College Cambridge in 1746.

After graduation and ordination, Jones was appointed to the Collegiate Church of St Saviour, Southwark in London.

Jones experienced an evangelical conversion in 1754 after being introduced to the Countess of Huntingdon and the evangelical clergymen William Romaine and Martin Madan.

For several years, Jones was the only beneficed Anglican evangelical in London.
