Anyone researching the surname Jeff in Lambeth? My great-great grandmother married Thomas Jeff (at least I think she did, can't find the reference in the English indexes) and had 6 or 7 children. Kids were born 1866-1882 or thereabouts. Her name was Mary Message Oliver (Message her middle name), b. Dallington, Sussex in 1844, daughter of Stephen Carly Oliver and Hannah Hollands. I have Thomas Jeff's death certificate, but not much else. He was a domestic carman. The 1881 shows a few other Jeffs in the area - Thomas b. Guildhall, Surrey ca 1839. Diana, Canada.

Brenda, we might have a connection. Mary Message Oliver and Thomas Jeff had a daughter Elizabeth c. ca 1875, Norwood, Surrey, according to the 1881 and 1891 censuses. Does this fit with your dates? I have nothing further on Elizabeth.

I do not have any dates on her, but my
grandmother was born in 1900 so that would
be about the right time frame that i am
looking for. She married john pettitt and
they had six known children.
