In the Victorian dramatic world Jones was rather atypical, from a modest farming background and with relatively little formal education. He earned his living in business until his play Only Round the Corner gave him a start as a dramatist. Jonesís output was prolific, including melodramas, realist problem pieces, and social comedies, Mrs Daneís Defence perhaps the best known for the film versions made of it.
