    The Joneses set a record in Wales!

    The Joneses set a record in Wales (where else?)

    By Richard Savill


    It was the ultimate in keeping up with the Joneses - 1,224 of them arrived in Cardiff last night to claim a record for the largest gathering of people with one surname.

    They came from as far as Australia and America to beat the record held in Sweden by 583 people called Noberg.

    "My mother always said that if you were called Jones you would never be alone in this world," said Simon Jones, 43, who flew with his wife Becky from Kentucky to join in the celebration at the Wales Millennium Centre.

    "It is like one big family party. We can't have the Swedes holding this record. It is a matter of Welsh pride."

    Jones is the most common surname in Wales and derives from the first name John.

    "It's not unusual" to be a "Jones" in Wales...
