For the last few weeks I have been tidying up the UK database and combining duplicate records. This is now completed and so I have started adding additional records to the database. A further 50 Lefever names have been added, some of whom were still alive in the 20th century.

One interesting person in this update was Jim Lefevre born in March, Cambridgeshire. His father and siblings mainly worked on the Great Eastern Railway. He was an agricultural labourer who married and moved to Islington in London where for a few years he was a policeman. He then returned to Cambridgeshire and worked on the railways for a short while before becoming a publican (a regular job for retired policemen). I will try and do some research to find out about his police service in the coming months.

I have had a couple of contacts from people researching the Lefevre name in North America and will hopefully be adding some of their data shortly.
