English: Gabriel Jones (May 17, 1724 – October 1806) was an 18th century Welsh American lawyer, legislator, court clerk, and civil servant in the colony (and later U.S. state) of Virginia. Jones served as the Clerk of Court for Hampshire County, Virginia (now West Virginia) for a tenure lasting 25 years (1757–1782) and represented Frederick, Hampshire, and Augusta counties as a member of the House of Burgesses of Virginia. In addition, Jones also served as the King's Attorney for Augusta County and as the coroner for Frederick County. He was elected to represent Virginia at the Continental Congress, but did not attend, and elected to represent Rockingham County in the Virginia Ratifying Convention. Jones was an uncle of American pioneer John Gabriel Jones (1752–1776) and he was a friend of both George Washington and Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron.
