JEFFERSON Family History

The history of this name is a little complicated, since two and possibly three Old German personal names have "fallen together" in the same form, of Geoffrey or Jeffrey. In England the name was introduced by the Normans after the Conquest in 1066, as "Je(u)froi", and appears in Middle English as "Geffrey". At that time "Godfrey" was a separate name and it is thought that some "Geoffreys" may be corruptions of that name. Otherwise, the names that combined to form "Jeffrey" were "Godafrid", god-peace; "Gaufrid", territory-peace; and "Galfridus", song-peace.
