Francis Jeffords-Jefferds-Gifford

Can anyone help with this link. There is a Francis Gifford listed at Blunt Point Virginia in 1622-23, again in 1624-25. He was granted 50 acres to work, not clear if he is the owner or a headright. Then there is a Francis Jefferds-Jeffords mentioned as being transported by George Truhett in 1651 (Cavaliers and Pioneers book pg 217). I also found a source that list the spelling as Jeffrey in "Early Virginia Immigrants" pg 178. I know this is the same because it references the same George Truhett and the dates are the same.
Is Frances Gifford and Francis Jefford the same person?? I've poured over tons of books but I can't seem to find any information that would make a positive link for the two. There are times in the history of Francis Jefford where the name is spelled Gifford. I also can't find where Francis originated from.
