I have been researching my wifes maternal family tree. Judge Jeffreys is reputed to be an ancestor, however, there is no proof as yet. I have only been able to get as far as 1725 when their ancestor died as a missionary at sea in Madagascar. He was survived by several descendants George Yarnold Jeffreys, Thomas Jeffreys, Anne May Jeffreys and Kethurah Jeffreys and his wife Kethura (nee Yarnold). His mother was Mary and Father was John from Staffordshire on the Welsh border. I am going to be doing further research in London at the records office.
