Obituary. T. SIMPSON JONES, M.A., J.P. T. Simpson Jones, who died on December 16th, 1937, at the age of eighty- four, was a son of Morris Charles Jones, F.S.A., cne of the founders of the Powys- land Club. Though he was actually born in Liverpool, he was descended from Morris Jones, a freeman of Welshpool in the reign of Queen Anne. He was educated at Ruabon Grammar School and Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1880 he entered Lincolns Inn and was called to the Bar. After a few years' practice in London, however, he retired and came to reside in Montgomeryshire. During his long residence near Welshpool he shared actively in the life of the town and the district. For many years, in addition to assisting several sports and social clubs, he served the Free Library and the Welshpool Hospital. In 1918 he was elected Mayor of Welshpool. Simpson Jones possessed a lively and whimsical sense of humour, unusual social gifts, and cultivated tastes. Among his hobbies were amateur dramatics, book-binding, which he learned in Italy. and wood-carving. Examples of his carving can be seen in Llandrinio Church and in the reredos of Llanllwchaiarn Church. He was also interested in local history. He gave long service to the Powysland Museum, and was a member of the Council of the National Museum of Wales. Simpson Jones' name will always be especially associated with the Powys- land Club. As a boy and a young man he assisted his father with the Museum and the publications, and from 1891 to 1936 he was honorary secretary. The present existence of the Club must in a large measure be ascribed to his almost unassisted efforts during the years astride of the War, when both the Museum and the Club were practically forgotten. The Montgomeryshire Collections contain a good many of the excellent line drawings which he made to illustrate papers by his father and several friends. With some of the latter he collaborated in publishing in the Collections The History of Guilsfield and The Old Houses of Welshpool." By his death the Club has lost one of its oldest and most loyal members.
