Sir William Jones (1746 –1794) was an Anglo-Welsh philologist, a puisne judge on the Supreme Court of Judicature at Fort William in Bengal, and a scholar of ancient India, particularly known for his proposition of the existence of a relationship among European and Indo-Aryan languages, which he coined as Indo-European. Though both Whigs the more independent and liberal Jones tangled with the conservative Burke on matters related to the East India Company.
