  • ( I received this email from England -.
    "Audrey - I have found a Miss Jane Jefferis, born in Alton whilst searching the history of my house. You may have seen the page in the latest HS journal. Jane Jefferis was a head teacher of a boys prep school in Titchfield called Westholme from sometime after 1859 (definitely by 1867) until before 1891 (but after 1885). The page in the 1881 census gives her age as 38 and there is a boy border in the school Henry Samuel Jefferis aged 12 also born in Alton ( not sure of the relation). Jane took over her post from a lady called Martha Eggar, possibly connected to Eggar's Grammar School in Alton as she was possibly born in Holybourne in 1818.
    You may already know all this and more, I would be interested if she fits into your family tree and if you have any more details about her and her life in Titchfield. I live in half of the house that once was the prep school.
