I’m moving ‘Jane Christmas Lefroy’ to her own section because it’s getting too large to put under her father’s section (Tom Lefroy). Anyway, I hope you guys bear with me… for it’s seemingly gonna be a rather long ride.
I’m very curious with the name Elizabeth Christmas, hence I took some Google queries of Jeffry Paul and Elizabeth Christmas. Found that record, JP died in 1730 and EC was born in 1689. Jeffry Paul was from
This picture here is taken from Tim Sandberg’s Genealogy Database, a very good one, I should say, for it’s free and provided me the answer for the Pauls and Christmases (not for the Lefroys, though, surprisingly…). Up until now, I never knew that Christmas is a family name. See Henry Christmas for example. Loads of his descendants.
Anyway, Elizabeth Christmas and Jeffry Paul had several children, including the Jeffrey Paul Jr., who later married to Margaret Morris (daughter of Benjamin Morris) of Co Waterford, Ireland. Hence, Elizabeth Christmas was NOT Mary Paul’s grandmother or Jeffry Paul’s mother or something like that; so that ruled out the idea in my previous post that ‘Jane Christmas Lefroy’ was named after Mary’s grandmother…for the moment. I will still try to find Mary Paul’s and Jane Paul’s dates of birth, see if they have December or Christmas connections; also if any of their female ancestors have any relationships with the Christmases.
Sigh… Tom, where do you take me now, lad? I need to take a break, I start to see everything as family trees now…
