What is the Jones’ rule?
The convention I gave first, viz that you don't write apostrophe-s after a word ending in s: Jones' cow, not Jones's cow. It's not universally followed though, hence St James's court. (I don't know what they do there, because actually the Queen receives ambassadors formally, when they first arrive, at Buckingham Palace, where she usually lives.)
