Biographical Illustrations of Worcestershire
Henry Vaughan Jeffreys,
Whose very eminent abilities as a surgeon entitle him to a .place among the celebrated men of Worcester, was the son of Herbert Jeffreys, Esq. of Old Kington House, in the county of Hereford; but it is believed the subject of this sketch was born at Argos, in Radnorshire, certainly on the 20th June, 1722. He was an apprentice to Mr. Stephen Edwards, of Worcester, afterwards surgeon to the Worcester Infirmary, to which place, after having pursued his medical education in London, he returned as a practitioner. In 1747 Mr. Jeffreys was appointed one of the surgeons of the Worcester Infirmary; and he is highly eulogised in the Histories of Worcester for the share which he took in promoting the establishment of this institution, and for the industry and skill with which he performed its duties. He died at his house in Foregate-street, Jan. 6, 1803.

The children of Robert Douglas and Frances Jeffreys were:

Helen Margaret Douglas (1791-1831)
Rev. Canon Henry Douglas (1793-1859)
