well to date I've found one book on the Judge... it seems he was a very bright man with rather a temper and a justly deserved reputation for severity... the books and articles about him have mainly been written by his political enemies, so it is hard to get a clear picture of the real person. He lived at Wem; his father was a county judge; he did have offspring who seem to have been connected with various prominent families. The family owned Bulstrode Manor which was later sold to the Earls of Portland. The name Jeffreys is Welsh; they came over with William the Conqueror originally, and I think it was probably spelt Geoffroy at that time. Many descendants lived in Norfolk. I have mainly used peerages to try to track down descendants of the Judge, and up till now it can't be confirmed that he has to do with my line. hope something turns up, will keep in touch if so, e.a.
