Following Her Footsteps

There always so much to see when I travel to Quebec City and I made a point to visit some places that I knew were frequented by my ancestors.

Before leaving I created a list of places to visit and on the list was the Jeffery family home in the 1840s. Robert and Elizabeth (Tipper) Jeffery lived at 43 Ursule Street in the 1840s-1853 with their children. Robert was arrested for domestic violence and ended up in jail, I am not sure what happened to him when he got out but he does not come back and live with Elizabeth.

Elizabeth opened up a boarding house at 45 Ursule Street and passes away in 1853 and her daughter who was living with her relocates to New York.

Here I am outside her home which is now the Hotel Acadia and is advertised as “cozy rooms in a 19th-century townhouse”.

The location of where Elizabeth’s home was in Quebec City. It is quite close to many tourist sites.
