(1605–82), clergyman and political survivor. The son of Lewis Jones, Church of Ireland bishop of Killaloe 1633–46, he was appointed bishop of Clogher by Ormond in 1645, served the Cromwellian regime as scoutmaster-general, but in 1661, following the Restoration, was promoted to the bishopric of Meath. A vehement anti-Catholic, he was a firm believer in the reality of the Popish Plot and played an important part in the proceedings that led to the execution of Oliver Plunkett.
