My one-name study

 

After running in to a brick wall that I have been unable to knock down researching my direct Spencer ancestors I have decided to research the LeFever family and its variants.

Lily LeFever

Elsie LeFever

My paternal grandmother Lily Rose LeFever 1900-1991 and her sister Elsie May LeFever 1899-1993 were instrumental in starting me on my family history research in the early 1980’s. Elsie was a great source of information remembering dates of birth, marriage and death of many of her ancestors. When I subsequently checked the information that she had given me  all of it proved to be accurate, which was certainly impressive for someone in her eighties. Certainly their direct ancestors had interesting lives living and working in London’s East End mainly as costermongers (greengrocers) in the Bethnal Green area.

I  intend to devote the next few years on furthering my research in to the Lefever family surname and the information on this website will detail all the information that I find regardless of where in the world the information comes from.

On this site I intend to have one page per country and so if you have any information concerning the LeFever family anywhere in the world please contact me using the contact form on this site.
