Edward Floyd-Jones

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Edward Floyd-Jones (January 26, 1823 – January 23, 1901) was an American politician from New York.


Edward was born on January 26, 1823 in Massapequa, then part of Queens County. His parents were Henry Floyd-Jones (1792-1862) and Helen (Watts) Floyd-Jones (1792-1872). His younger brother was Brigadier General DeLancey Floyd-Jones.

He was educated at Union Hall Academy in Jamaica, Queens, and in 1849 moved to California during the California Gold Rush. He established the Jones & Hewlett firm in Stockton, but in 1862 he moved to Hempstead, Long Island for a few years. While there, he married Mary Smith Lloyd (1839-1874) on December 10, 1862 in Greenport. Mary was the daughter of Representative Frederick William Lord. Edward and Mary had three children: Helen Watts Floyd-Jones (1863-1917), Louise Ackerly Thorn (1867-1961), and Edward Henry Floyd-Jones (1869-1930).

In 1869, Edward and his family went back to Stockton, but when Mary died in 1874 they returned to Long Island, settling in Edward's hometown of Massapequa. He became active in local politics, serving as Supervisor of Oyster Bay. He was a member of the Democratic Party.

In 1891, he was elected to the New York State Senate, where he represented the 1st District (Queens and Suffolk counties). He was a member of the State Senate in 1892 and 1893.

Edward died on January 23, 1901 in his daughter Louise's home on 35 East 63rd St. He was buried in Floyd-Jones family cemetery on the Grace Church Complex in Massapequa.
