Blessed Edward Jones (died 6 May 1590) was born in the diocese of St Asaph and baptised an Anglican. He was received into the Catholic Church in Reims in 1587 and ordained priest in 1588. He returned to England and was arrested in Fleet Street in 1590. Tortured in the Tower he made a skilful defence, for which the court complimented him. This, however, did not stop him being convicted of high treason. He was hanged, drawn and quartered on 6 May 1590, opposite the grocer’s shop where he had been captured.
