JEFFERY - JEFFREY ... same name different spelling.

Had a dig in the Victorian records and found the following.

Henry Seymour JEFFREY.
Died 1918 East Melbourne, Victoria, aged 71 years. *
Parents recorded as Frederick JEFFREY and Hannah White SEYMOUR.

Ellen SMITH. **
Died 1926 East Melbourne, Victoria, aged 79 years.
Parents recorded as Edward DIXON and Margaret PATTEN.

* If Henry was born in 1839 he would have been about 77 years old when he died in 1918. The error may have been made when the indexes were being compiled, or the informant gave the wrong age. This does happen a lot.

** Ellen remarried in 1922 to John SMITH.

Hope this will be of some help to you.
