The town is named after Captain Jeffrey’s who sailed his cargo ship on the East Coast of South Africa on trading expeditions in the 1840’s. It was during one of his trips that an epidemic of scurvy broke aboard, forcing him to land his vessel in what he believed to be a place filled with opportunities.
