He seems to have been the first of the Habershon family to have attempted an investigation of its descent, and his pedigree is valuable in that he gives notes and dates - the whereabouts of this pedigree is not known. .He married on 11 September 1821 in Rotherham, Elizabeth Broadhurst, who died 1 April 1849.  He later married Mary Ann Greaves. Joseph Jones Habershon died on 13 January 1882."
