Jones, Thomas c. 1729-d. 1762

Thomas Jones was sometimes Chaplain of St. Saviour's, Southwark, in the Church of England. This excellent Man was called to stand forth in support of the truths of the gospel at a period, when those truths seemed to have but little impression among the members of the established church, to which he belonged.

An ornamental marble tablet (1762), on the south wall (of Southwark Cathedral) commemorates the Rev. Thomas Jones, who died of a fever contracted during his parochial visitings, and was buried in a vault in the "Little Chapel of Our Lady." He was chaplain at St. Saviour's from 1753 till he died at the early age of thirty-three. A faithful and zealous evangelical pastor at a period of general debility in the Church of England, he was hampered throughout his ministrations by the governing body, who not only had the right of selecting their ministers, but exercised a jealous censorship on their teaching and practice, when they showed any tendency to "unsoundness" or undue enthusiasm. Above the tablet containing the inscription there is a bust of Mr. Jones, in the clerical dress and necktie of his date, with a cherub on each side.
