Betty Labey Jeffries (196) was born on 2nd May 1903 at Crouch End, Edmonton, London.



 In 1911 she was living at 51 Leith Mansions, Grantully Road, Elgin Avenue in Westminster, London.


I can find no evidence of her marrying or having children.


What I can find is her amount of travelling across the Atlantic. This has been previously referred to in relation to her father, who died in New York, but her travelling notes make interesting reading:


In 1920 she is found living in Scarsdale, Westchester, New York with her father
