Hello
I have checked my book named "The Jeffs Families" written by L.D. Jeffs and published in 1973, and there is no mention of Thomas Jeffs born before 1958 or his wife Elizabeth Pierson. My books starts with

You might try looking for Thomas with a different spelling.

Dictionaries of surnames indicate probable spelling variations. The most predominent variations of Jeffs are Jeffes, Jeff, Jeffe.

Since many of the variations of the Jeffs surname is known to researchers more variations include but is not limited to the following: Jheffs, Jeffes, Jefes, Jeves, Geves, Geffes, Jelphs, Jevs.

Just a thought it is very common to have names change due to typos in census transcriptions or similar very honest events.

I had look on England Census on Ancestry.com for Thomas Jeffs and family.

Have located Thomas and members of his family from 1871 Census to 1901 Census. (He is listed as a Stonemason in all of them)
Look for a birth date of approx 1846 and a death date after 1901 for Thomas Jeffs. (census's gives a couple of locations in England where he was born)

No idea who his parents are.

His wife Esther Elizabeth Pierson may have died between 1889 and 1901 as Thomas is listed as a Widower in 1901 Census and their last known child Edward A. Jeffs was born abt. 1899.

PS I am slowly working on a name study of Jeffs around the world and would be interested in any new information you locate.

I have a Thomas Jeffs (maybe Juffes) in my tree born, I think, in 1791 and married to an Elizabeth Fielding (maybe Field). They had a daughter Caroline (probably also others, but I have traced back from Caroline's death certificate). Caroline married Thomas Padley and emigrated in 1852 to Australia. One of her children who died before they left was Thomas Juffes Padley. Do you have anything on this Thomas?

Hi Kimberley

In your 'Jeffs' book, have you come across an English Jeffs from Warwickshire circa 1875 who had a daugther illegitimately. The mother of the child is Temperance Ann Holtom and the name of the child is Elizabeth Agatha Jeffs-Holtom, b.1876 at Leamington Priors..

This is a long-shot but I have been trying to find the father of Elizabeth for my family research. Elizabeth is my grandfathers mother.

Any info could be helpful...

Thank you..

Hi

The only Thomas Jeffs that is listed was b. 7/19/1865 in Brimingham, Warwickshire, England and d. Jan 1893.

His father was William Jeffs Sr. son of Charles Jeffs and Sarah Atwood, md. Ellen Smith dau of Arnold Smith and Charlotte Blake.

William and Ellen had 8 children:

John William b. 10/9/1849 Horley, Oxfordshire, England, md. Amelia Bramwell; d. 7/8/1929

Fredrick Charles b. Apr 1851 Horley, Oxfordshire, England; d. Jun 1859

Lottie Charlotte b. 2/1/1853 Horley, Oxfordshire, England; md. Henry Simpson

Cathrine Rebecca b 4/9/1854 Horley, Oxfordshire, England; md. George Miller

William Henry b. 3/13/1858 Horley, Oxfordshire, England; md Rose Hannah Green; d. 8/2/1891

Oliver Arnold b. 5/10/1860 Banbury, Oxfordshire, England; md. Roberta Louisa Roberts; d. 1/28/1941

THOMAS b. 7/19/1865 Brimingham, Warwickshire, England; d. Jan 1893

Richard b. 6/13/1866 London, England; md Annie Frazer Cairns; d. 4/15/1926

Thats all it says about this Thomas. There is no name indexed for Temperance Ann Holton or Elizabeth Agatha Jeffs-Holtom.

Hope this helps. Let me know if this is your Thomas. Please.

Thanks for the info Kimberley but my problem is that I do not know who the JEFFS is that I am looking for. And it is only a guess that a Jeffs is the father of my Elizabeth Agatha because of her surname being listed as Jeffs-Holtom on her birth certificate. No dad has been named. Her mum is definitely Temperance Ann Holtom who appears not to have married....although she had two, and perhaps three, children.

Cheers...
