Hi Nancy,

Someone kindly sent me some information for both John and Sarah.

This is John's christening:

John Jeffs
England, Cheshire Bishop's Transcripts, 1598-1900
christening: 19 October 1817 Tarporley, Cheshire, England
residence: 19 October 1817 , Tarporley, Cheshire, England
father: Richard Jeffs
mother: Martha

This is the 1851 Census from England and it appears John was lodging with another family, which is interesting.

This is Sarah's christening:

And this is Sarah in the 1851 census:

I have extensive information now for both Sarah and John after they were married including their children, movements, occupations and deaths and if you like I can send that to you if it will help. But the only gap I have been unable to fill is after they were born and how they came over to Australia. My thoughts are that they met over here and then married but I could be wrong. They married in 1863 so definitely came over before then.

Thanks for anything you're able to come up with!
