I am originally from the UK and I am tracing my ancestors. My oldest relative is Heny Jeff, born in mid-1700s and on his marriage record to
Mary Morris in 1761 in Belbroughton, Worcester, it says his parish is Stone. It also says on that record that his witness was John Jeff [assuming father] so
am trying to track down any records of either John Jeff or Henry Jeff. Can you tell me which churches or historical societies exist in the Stone area that I can
contact? Other thoughts?

I believe that the register of St. Mary's Church at Stone dates from the year 1601 so there should be some useful information contained therein. Microfiche copies are held at Worcestershire Archives. This branch of the Jeff family may have moved to Kinlet in Shropshire, though I am not certain of this. Good luck in your research. Kieron
