Two men called Andrew Jones were living in Cricklade at the time of the poll tax of 1379: a brewer who contributed 1s. and a butcher who contributed 6d. One of them had acquired a messuage in the town two years earlier. It was probably the wealthier of the two—the brewer—who had served as a juror at inquisitions post mortem held at Cricklade in 1374 and 1377, at Highworth in 1374 and at Swindon in 1376, and who went on to sit in Parliament in 1386.
