The best explanation I've heard is that it comes from the time of King John, which could also be spelled Jon. If a new recruit had no last name, he was be given the name Jon's, or Jones. In other words, the soldier would be one of King Jon's men. That account fits well with the large number of Joneses in the world today. That said, I cannot say that is the real answer.
H Jones.

The origin of the surname Jones is English and Welsh-Celtic.  The meaning of the name is similar in both instances.  The English meaning is itself derived from the Hebrew name "Johanan," meaning "Jehovah has favored."  The Welsh-Celtic meaning has
its roots in Christianity. This surname comes from the personal name
John, which is derived from the Latin Johannes, meaning "Yahweh is
gracious." Good luck.
