Tons
(Thoens, Thons, Tous, Dons)
   The Tons were a family of tapestry weavers and painters of cartoons for canvases. Members included Jan I Tons (1456 to 1467-1556), a painter in Brussels who was fined for listening to Lutheran preaching at the home of Bernard Van Orley in April 1527. Frans Tons (1576-after 1622) weaved tapestries in his native city.
