Auber Jones

Auber George Jones (1832 – 30 December 1887) was an Australian politician.

He was born at Jericho in Van Diemen's Land to Robert and Harriet Jones. He worked with the Hobart Mercury in Tasmania before moving to Melbourne, where he studied to be an Anglican priest. Around 1860 he moved to New South Wales, managing a station near Wagga Wagga before acquiring his own property in 1866. He had extensive property in the Lachlan and Bogan districts, and also established the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. On 6 May 1854 he had married Hannah Maria Moore, with whom he had six children. He was married a second time on 21 January 1878, to Mary Milford. In 1882 he was elected to the New South Wales Legislative Assembly for Murrumbidgee, but he did not re-contest in 1885. Jones died at Young in 1887.[1]
