Jeffery (sometimes misspelled as Jeffrey) began playing the organ at St. Anne’s Ca­thed­ral in Plymouth at age 14, taking over his father’s position. He emigrated to America in 1876 and settled in Albany, New York. He developed a chorus and directed the music at St. Agnes School, and played the organ at the Protestant Episcopal Ca­thed­ral. He left for Yonkers, New York, in 1893, and served at the First Pres­by­ter­i­an Church. Later, he taught music at the New England Conservatory.
