Notes: My second Great Grandmother was Amelia Vear JIFKINS, born December 1891. She married my 2nd Gt Grandfather, James EDWARDS. Amelia's father was Edward Richard Vear JEFKINS, born 1788 in Sydenham; his father was Richard VEAR, born 1766. Richard married Hannah GEFKINS in 1794, so it seems Edward incorporated his mother's maiden name. Richard's father was John VEAR, born about 1740 in Sydenham/Chalgrove. Obviously there are variants here on the spelling of Geffkins/Gifkyns/Jifkins. I am interested in following the VEAR line to find out if it has been revised/adapted from de Vere.
