LE­FEVER/Beth­nal Green

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - QUESTIONS & ANSWERS -

My grand­mother, Hen­ri­etta Le­fever, was born on 14 July 1888 in Beth­nal Green. Her mother, Clara El­iz­a­beth Ather­ton Le­fever, reg­is­tered her with the same sur­name as her sib­lings de­spite the fact that Fred­er­ick Le­fever, Clara’s hus­band, had died sev­eral years be­fore Hen­ri­etta’s birth. Hen­ri­etta told her fam­ily that her mother took in lodgers af­ter her hus­band died, one of whom was an Ir­ish sea­man, whose sur­name she be­lieved was Buck­ley, and was thought to be her bi­o­log­i­cal father. Can any­one sug­gest how to track down this pos­si­ble an­ces­tor? CJ Prowse, by email
