Kia Ora from New Zealand - I hope 'this mail gets through' as I note your post is dated 2002.
I am a Jeffers. Daughter of Hubert Haynes Jeffers, son of Earnest Haynes jeffers. H H Jeffers born 1901.
E H Jefers born 1872.
I am hoping to ascertain the rest of the Jeffers, as in my G grandfather is hopefully a Richard Jeffers born in Ireland abt. 1834 - 1835. I have asked for records from GRO in UK.
I have been looking for nearly 5 years and drawn a blank - brick wall at almost every turn. I hit paydirt though a few weeks back through the 1881 UK census.
I know my Great-Grandfather jeffers was born in a lovely Georgian Mansion in innishannon, County Cork. The house was built by my G G Grandfather, R H Jeffers who died in 1845. A Mrs R H Jeffers lived there during the Famine and I am assuming my G Grandfather was this Richard jeffers. It may be that there are other sons. I do not know.
The only other photograph I have is of three boys / men in a "two up two down" terraced house in the East end of London. I wish I knew what had happened to them.

if this is of any interest. I have lots (tooo many) of photographs of the UK Jeffers family.
I changed my name from Winifred to Philippa many years ago. I don't think I need to expalin.
Haeare Ra (farewell)
Philippa [aka Winifred Jeffers]
