Elias Jeffs was born in the year 1767 in All Hallows Wall, London, England. He died on Jan 8, 1814, at age 47 and was buried on Jan 16 in Essex, England at St. Mary's Virgin Church, Walthamstow on Marsh street. He lived on Silver street, Parish of St.James county of Middlesex, the same street Mr. S (Shakespear) previousley resided, and worked as a Master Farrier in Naylors yard. He wrote his will in the year 1799 leaving all his earthly possesions to his wife Elizabeth Jeffs (nee Bird). Only one child can be traced to Elias and Elizabeth, a daughter, also named Elizabeth whome was around 20 years old when Elias had passed being born in 1794. Yeah was told by many jewelry experts that in Georgian times most jewelry was made of a copper alloy metal called Pinchbeck, but had doubts due to surface finish when dug..so purchased a jewelry test kit.. and yes the roman Catholic "Little Garden'' style was not popular untill the Victorian era and it was illegal for most common working class to even own gold during the Georgian era, specially being lesser than 18 karat, unlike in the Victorian period jewelry where 9 Karat gold was fairly common. Thanks you! doubt i will ever be able to top find! Cheers!Pretty special find there. Congratulations. Would it really date from 1814, or is it the date to which the person it memorizes was born? I've seen similar pieces of hair jewelry and they were described as being from the Victorian age.
