I`m thinking we have some information we can share.

We have Thomas Jeeves b. 1795, Temford, Bedfordshire m. Sarah Bennet b. 1801, Sandy Bedfordshire,

They had at least 8 children all born in Sandy Bedfordshire after 1826.

We also have an Ann Tingey b. 1833, Northill, Bedforshire (close to Sandy), she married Jesse Jeeves in 1852. Jesse and Thomas Jeeves were cousins. Common ancestors are William Jeeves and Elizabeth Lincoln.

1770: "The parish of Sandy near Northill is much noted for its gardens; there are above 150 acres of land occupied by many gardeners...it is a rich, loose, black sand of a good depth, and very favourable protected from adverse winds by several considerable hills." (Arthur Young from Six Months' Tour through the North of England, 1770)

My wife's 1st cousin 2 times removed, was William Jeeves b. 1879 m. Clara Jane Ball. Their common ancestors are Henry Jeeves 1826-1901) and Caroline Tatmun (1823-1902).chil

I only list George William Jeeves b. 3 May, 1920 as their child.

I also show a previous marriage of Clara Jane Ball to Fred Chesher (1888-1915)

can you expand any?

I don't know a lot about her history. I do know that she was raised in an orphanage. She married my grandfather when she was 16 or 17 and moved to America (Seattle). I do remember her talking about a brother but I can't remember his name. I will have to look into it.
