Jones, Mrs

Passenger who survived the wreck of the Edward Lombe in Sydney Harbour in 1834. She was travelling from London with her husband, a solicitor, after their marriage had been objected to by his parents. Her brother travelled with them, but neither he nor her husband survived the disaster. It is not clear from the reports of the wreck which of the other victims was her brother. Left with nothing after the wreck, she was taken in by Sydney's society. She returned to London in October 1834 on the Caroline where she opened a tobacconist's shop on the City Road.
