Jefferson Genealogy & History

Jefferson is an English and Welsh name. It was derived from the personal name Jeffrey or Geoffrey. The origin of those is controversial; there are a great many older personal names they are thought to have been derived from, including Gaufrid (meaning "territory" and "peace") and Godafrid (meaning "God" and "peace"). Multiple names may also have been combined to form Geoffrey. Jefferson family history begins in Herefordshire, and its first recorded instance is Robert Geffreysone (an alternate spelling) in 1344. Other than the eminent Thomas Jefferson, Jefferson genealogy includes Geoffrey Jefferson, a neurosurgeon who performed the first successful embolectomy in England.
