Hi Dianne

The LDS IGI Family Search shows George was a native of Berkshire, England and Thomas was a native of Herefordshire, England , so most unlikely related.
Could not find MC of Thomas & Caroline or BC of Mary Ann or Jane on IGI , however did find them on IGI for 1871 census, registration district BROMYARD, Sub-district BISHOPS FROOME, Parish MUCH COWARNE, County HEREFORDSHIRE.


Self Thomas Jones 33 Bishops Frome, Heref.
Wife Caroline Jones 34 Hope Bagot,Shropshire
Dau Mary Ann J 13 Much Cowarne, Heref.
Dau Jane J 10 ditto
Dau Caroline J 8 ditto
Son Timothy J 4 ditto
Son Thomas J 2 ditto
Mother Jane Jones 69 Asperton, Heref.
Brother Richard Jones 56 Cradley, Heref.
Sis-I-Law Mary Jones 43 Acton, Worcestershire
Nephew William Jones 8 Leigh, Worces.

Mother and brother's ages a bit dodgy.

Found Thomas & Catherine's marriage on UK FreeBMD (You can purchase online with credit Card) :

June Quarter 1857 Thomas Jones to Caroline Oliver ( You might be related to Jamie !! )in Ludlow , on the border of Herefordshire and Shropshire.
