Henry Jones was born in Llangernyw, Denbighshire on 30 November 1852 and died, after a prolonged and painful battle against mouth cancer, on 4 February 1922. He is buried in the churchyard at Kilbride, the Isle of Bute, Scotland. He was the third son of Elias Jones, a shoemaker, and Elizabeth Williams. He left school at the age of twelve years to become apprenticed to his father, but was persuaded to resume his education and won a scholarship to Bangor Normal Teacher Training College in 1870. He became the Headmaster of the small Ironworks School at Brynammam, South Wales in 1873. Influenced by his strong Methodist family background, Jones became a registered Calvinistic minister. He won a scholarship to study at Glasgow University in 1875, where he was influenced by Edward Caird and John Nichol.
