A native of Liverpool, England, Alfred Jones became a noted engraver* and also did some genre, landscape, and figure painting and vignette* drawings.  He was brought to the United States as an infant, and the family settled in New York state.

During his youth, Jones apprenticed in Albany to an engraving firm of Rawdon, Wright, Hatch and Edson. In 1834, he moved to New York City, and began working as an engraver and in the 1830s, he enrolled in classes in the "Antique" at the National (showing 500 of 1971 characters).
