This last entry in the Jeffery sisters series, it is more of a tribute page as these three girls had short lives.
There were three young Jeffery girls that died very young and because of that there is not a lot of information to be found.
Mary Anne Jeffery is the first-born child of Robert Jeffery and Elizabeth Tipper. The couple married in Quebec City in 1818 in St. Andrew’s Church. Their daughter was born in Montreal and baptized in St. Gabriel’s Church on July 20, 1820 She died the following year when she was almost a year old.
Harriet, the ninth child born to Robert & Elizabeth in 1838, was baptized in St. Andrew’s Church, Quebec City. Her parent’s signature were the only ones on her baptism, her burial record in 1842 had her father’s signature as well as Fredrick Yeates her brother-in-law. Harriet was 4 years old when she died and her burial location is unknown.
Julia Heathfield Jeffery was the last child born to Robert and Elizabeth. She was baptized in 1842 and died in 1845. A witness on her baptism was Julia Heathfield but I have been unable to find out more about little Julia’s namesake. Julia Jeffrey’s burial location is unknown, just like her sisters and both her parents.
I enjoyed reading your series of the Jeffery sisters. Tragic that so many children died young in those days – you made a nice tribute.
Thank you Dianne!
Next up, the Jeffery boys!
