That is truly amazing. I taught in Montserrat until December 1995 when I evacuated to London for 4 days and on to the Sultanate of Oman where I now live and work. How did you choose the name Jamal for your son?
It's pretty difficult tracking the jeffers's through the century and I expect even more so now that the records are in disaray (if they survived). My Grandfather (John Henry Jeffers) had a brother we know as Uncle Willie. he lived on "hill"and was famous for his tennis court. I think he lso worked in the Post office in Plymouth. Are we talking about the same person here? If so we are second or third cousins! Where do you live now? Sorry about being so nosy but I just got back from a trip to the far east and found your reply among a trillion emails. It was the high point of my reading!
