      Married: her 1st. cousin Stanley Gordon Jeffreys (b. 23/11/1885 at Nuriootpa, S.A.) eldest son of Edwin and Wilhelmina (Strother) Jeffreys.

      FROM THE "SOUTHERN ARGUS" OF THURSDAY 6/3/1913:

      "Christ Church C. of E. Strathalbyn was the scene of a very pretty wedding yesterday afternoon when Miss Annie Borrett, daughter of Mr and Mrs George Borrett of "Raydon", Langhorne Creek, was married to Mr E. Jeffreys (error for Stanley Gordon Jeffreys) - son of Mr and Mrs Edwin Jeffreys late of Strathalbyn, (meaning formerly as was the custom then). The Rev. T. Percy Wood performing the ceremony. The church was prettily decorated for the occasion and the choir attended. The bride was very handsomely gowned in ivory satin with a heavily embroidered overdress of chiffon and wore a beautiful rich lace veil with orange blossom daintily arranged and she carried the customary bouquet.

      Her bridesmaid, Miss Shepherd of Adelaide. wore a pink gown and a large black picture hat. Mr Angus Borrett, the bride's brother, acted as groomsman. At the close of the ceremony Mr and Mrs Borrett entertained a party of friends at a reception at the church hall where Messrs. J. Farrant and Co. had laid out a dainty spread, and congratulations and good wishes were freely bestowed on the happy couple who were the recipients of a lovely lot of wedding presents."

      So far as can be traced by Directories, Stanley Gordon Jeffreys was a farmer and as there were no descendants more details cannot be ascertained. At the time of this marriage S. G. Jeffreys farmed at Murraytown, S.A. and was also a land and estate agent. In due course he and Annie retired to 43 Oxford Terrace, Unley, near Adelaide, but then called "New Parkside".

      By 1934, S. G. Jeffreys appeared in Directories as at 242 Glen Osmond Rd, Fullarton, S.A. as "F3l'l'T'l8l'", but the Oxford Terrace, Unley address appears to have been their last home.
