Lefroy Family history: ‘[...] Anthony, the only male Lefroy left in the world at that time, left England to seek his fortune in Italy. There he met and married Elizabeth Langlois, the daughter of a rich Huguenot banker, and they had two sons and a daughter, Anthony, George and Phoebe. [Shows painting of Anthony and Elizabeth in 1738]. Both sons travelled widely and Anthony [portrait of c.1780], upon arriving in Ireland in 1760, declared “I have arrived in Paradise”! He married an Irish girl from Clare, Anne Gardiner, and they had five daughters, followed by five sons, the eldest of which they named Thomas, Jeffry's great-great-great grandfather.’ Further, cites General Sir John Henry Lefroy, Lt- Colonel Patrick Lefroy (MBE), founder of Council for the Protection of Irish Heritage Objects and others.
