Robert Jones was born on 22 March 1873 in Gadlys, Pwllheli, Carnavonshire. In 1891 he was still at Gadlys with his mother and two of his siblings. He was working as a labourer; however, by 1897 when he got married he was living at Quay, Pwllheli and working as a plasterer. On 17 April 1897, Robert married Eliza Thomas, from Nevin, in the Register Office in Pwllheli. After their marriage, they lived at 1 Back Carnarvon Road, Pwllheli. Robert and Eliza had five children. Their second eldest, Catherine Jones, was born on 17 April 1899 in Well Street, Nevin, Carnavonshire - the same place as her mother - Eliza. On her birth certificate, Robert was shown as a slater and plasterer, and in the 1901 census he was shown as a plasterer.
