Welcome to the Jeffrey and associated families website, I hope you find something of interest.
Contained within the database are a number of projects I am currently researching :-
(1) My own ancestors starting with my father, Walter Edmund Frank Jeffrey and my mother, Elsie Maud Nott. Click on the site menu on the left to explore their respective ancestors
(2) Fairly soon into my research I hit a brick wall regarding my great grandfather, Alfred Jeffrey (see Feature Article on My Jeffrey Ancestors), and in order to overcome this I began researching anyone with the same or similar name and before I knew it a one name study of the Jeffrey (and its many variant spellings) was born. As there are many variations in the spelling of this surname, I suggest you simply type Jeff into the surname search box and this will pick up all the variations.
(3) Many kind people sent me information on my mother's ancestors from Veryan and Gorran in Cornwall, England and this has developed into a one name study of the Nott family.
(4) A one place study of my birthplace of Erith, Kent, England which came about as I found that a number of marriages occurred between my direct ancestor families of Durrant, Wilders, Coshall and Beadles and other Erith families including Benge, Gilbert and Jarvis and I just had to find out how these families were connected.
Please note that individual reference numbers are preceded by a capital I which looks the numeral 1. This can be a bit confusing but I cannot do anything about this as it is built into the program.
Where a source is shown as FreeBMD, this may also come from Ancestry, Find My Past or other online resource. From 9 Nov 2016, the GRO have put their birth and death indexes online and recent entries have used this database.
Where the maiden name of a married woman is unknown, her married surname is enclosed in squared brackets.
As in all family history research, this is a work in progress and if you can help improve this site with further information, do please contact me.
