It seems possible that Jone’s Farm on Hills Road was in fact Alfred Jones’s Farm. He may have bought the original Jordan’s Farm which is marked on earlier maps at the time he inherited and built Trumpington House.

Beatrice was the widow of Alfred Jones, born 1832. He was a dentist and took over his father’s business in 1878 at 63 Trumpington Street and built Trumpington House soon afterwards. He first married an Eliza Miller in 1859 and then Beatrice Anna circa 1895.
Alfred Jones was one of two dentists elected to work at Addenbrookes in 1887 under the Dental Act of 1878. Each attended for one hour a week. Jones was one of the first dentists to use prolonged nitrous oxide anaesthetic with a nasal inhaler.
