The three Jeffery boys, Frederick, William, and James, were born in Bath, England. My great grandfather James was only 6 when they were sent to live and attend school at "The Union Workhouse" in Swansea, Wales. Their classes lasted three to four hours, the rest of their day was spent picking rocks out of the garden soil! They may have walked in the forest nearby, seen below. Their parents John and Ann(Creed) Jeffery could not read or write. In about 15 years the boys emigrated to Canada, married, had children , and became successful in their lives.
