My name is David Jeffrey. Although I now live in California, I was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Jeffrey family seems to come mainly from the Border country between Scotland and England, and includes a disproportionate number of blacksmiths.
My tree goes back to my 4th great grandfather, Alexander, whose death was registered in 1803 in the Ayton Parish Register.
I am interested in sharing information with any other Jeffreys from the same area.
