How to use Jeffrey in a sentence
The uniformed guys downstairs had drawn lots to see who got stuck informing the next of kin, and since that time, speculation on the disappearance of Jeffrey Byrne had been the chief topic of conversation at the Parkside Police Department.
Jeffrey Byrne, age 38, of 156 Maid Marian Lane, Parkside, apparently drowned in the early morning hours of Tuesday, May fourth while on a business trip in Norfolk, Virginia.
Jeffrey Byrne was employed in a regional marketing position by The World Wide Insurance Company of Philadelphia.
Jeffrey Byrne had telephoned home in early evening, his usual practice when he was traveling on business trips.
Jeffrey Byrne asked about Randy's ball game and inquired about the mail.Advertisement
There was far more to learn about Jeffrey Byrne before he could report an informed opinion on the happenings in Norfolk two nights earlier.
Mayer's telephone rang and he excused himself to answer it, leaving Dean at Jeffrey Byrne's grey steel desk.
It was beginning to look more as if Jeffrey Byrne pulled a stupid stunt after a few too many drinks in a lonely motel, leaving a widow and a teenaged son to fend for themselves.
He ticked off the items he had learned about Jeffrey Byrne during the course of the day, as much for his own review as to answer Fred's rapid-fire questions.
The job evaluations of Jeffrey Byrne in the personnel file surprised Dean, as they were considerably more glowing than the picture Mayer had painted of the missing man.Advertisement
When Dean described Jeffrey Byrne's quiet life style, Hunter nodded in agreement.
They had vaguely remembered Jeffrey Byrne from his repeat trips, but Byrne hadn't made much of an impression on anyone.
Hunter opened the drape, painting Jeffrey Byrne's sparse belongings in early afternoon sunlight.
Only 'St. Jeffrey,' Dean commented.
Before leaving, Hunter showed Dean the beach across the road where it was presumed Jeffrey Byrne took his last steps on land.Advertisement
Dean was sure Fred simply wanted to meet Jeffrey Byrne's wife and had suggested Cynthia Byrne come by the house for her husband's belongings.
Dean ignored his stepfather and instead pointed out Jeffrey Byrne's belongings and suggested Mrs. Byrne might want to check them over before signing a receipt.
There was total absence of mention of the disappearance of Jeffrey Byrne, Dean's trip to Norfolk, or any real-life matters for the entire evening.
As Dean drove away from Maid Marian Lane, he made up his mind to find out if the world had put a crown on Saint Jeffrey a little prematurely.
Why wait to find out about Jeffrey Byrne's little escapade?Advertisement
Dean could not tell from the writing if it compared to the signature Jeffrey Byrne left on the many expense forms Dean had reviewed—it was only a scrawl.
The angel Jeffrey's halo may be rusty.
Like maybe Jeffrey Byrne was just stupid enough to drown himself—half-drunk or sober.
They reminded Dean of Jeffrey Byrne, doing the same thing a week earlier.
Forget Jeffrey Byrne and forget his grieving wife.Advertisement
The report methodically listed each person interviewed and what they said about Jeffrey Byrne.
He included a picture of Jeffrey Byrne, recently forwarded from World Wide's personnel department.
When he replayed his dictated first draft, the report seemed dry but the evidence produced an overwhelming endorsement that there was no logical reason why Jeffrey Byrne might skip.
Dean was knee-deep in a dream, trying to pull his Visa card away from Jeffrey Byrne, who was sitting on a cloud playing a harp, when his bedroom was suddenly filled with light.
Jeffrey Byrne spent Tuesday and Wednesday in early March in Scranton.
Remember, Mrs. Byrne said Jeffrey wasn't much of a drinker.
If you're an honest, law-abiding guy, like everyone says Jeffrey Byrne was or is, why don't you just turn it in to the closest police station?
Dean wished he'd brought the picture of Jeffrey Byrne that World Wide had recently sent but it remained in the case file at the office.

It would have been much more convenient if the customer under the sheet had been Jeffrey Byrne.
Jeffrey would want that.
The ghost of Jeffrey Byrne, who had spent his final hours in the same dining room, was nowhere in evidence.
Dean knew if he were honest with himself he'd admit he was tickled pink during those few hours that it appeared Jeffrey Byrne's body had been found.
Had Jeffrey Byrne skipped or drowned?
As long as there wasn't a body, Dean could never be sure Jeffrey Byrne wouldn't jump out of the past and yell, "April Fool!" dragging Cynthia Byrne back to home and hearth.
With each passing day the possibility that Jeffrey Byrne's corpse might not be found became more realistic.
You're making some broad jumps just because Jeffrey Byrne visited in the Scranton area.
Then Hunter added, They wanted to see the file on your pal Jeffrey Byrne as well.
The Jeffrey Byrne Mayer eulogized was a far different man than Mayer had described in his Philadelphia office.
Better to stay away until the facts were known—or, hopefully, Jeffrey came in on the tide.
The next three days slid by, closer to the normal routine at both home and at the station than Dean had experienced since Jeffrey Byrne's midnight swim.
Strangely, Fred made no further mention of Monday night's revealing identification of Jeffrey Byrne by Chip Burgess.
Jeffrey Byrne's wife was in far better physical shape than she had let on, and the pair managed 20 miles before finally calling it quits, not because she was tired, but because, as she said, her what-sis was so sore.
The last three days had slid by without anything unusual transpiring, at least on the Jeffrey Byrne matter.
I want to know why Arthur Atherton is interested in Jeffrey Byrne.
The date was April 7—the date Jeffrey Byrne was in Scranton!
He had nearly forgotten the young lady, the recipient of Jeffrey Byrne's kindness.
Jeffrey found the money, told her about it, and the two decided to fake his death and start a new life.
Jeffrey fakes his death, but then fails to contact her.
While Cynthia skipping with Jeffrey was next to impossible for Dean to buy, no one could convince him she would abandon her son.
And there was no sign of Jeffrey Byrne, in person, in conversation or in spirit.
They both agreed—Dean still reluctantly—that the money was one more indication that Jeffrey Byrne was among the living.
Jeffrey Byrne had contacted his wife and like a fool she was going off somewhere to meet the son-of-a-bitch.
Dean felt ill at ease in Cynthia Byrne's bedroom, spying on her world, seeing the small rainbow of dresses hanging in her closet, sharing space with suits and shirts looking as if they were awaiting the return of Jeffrey Byrne.
But what made him most uncomfortable was the large four-poster bed Cynthia and Jeffrey Byrne had shared in love.
His mind was awhirl with the pending confrontation, not to mention the magazine article with one more arrow pointing toward bicycling, the motor home, a trip west, the Rocky Mountains and Jeffrey Byrne, all rolled into one very plausible package.
Tell me you think Jeffrey is dead!
He opened to the article and handed it to Fred, explaining how Jeffrey Byrne had circled the request for information.
We're not the only ones chasing Jeffrey Byrne and by the looks of things, they'd blow his head off as soon as spit on him.
Dean couldn't think of more than 20 names—Ethel Rosewater, Cynthia Byrne, David Dean, even Jeffrey Byrne, not to mention half of Arthur's gay friends and lovers and most of his ex-clients.
It was as if this separation was by miles only, and not the great chasm created by the disappearance of Jeffrey Byrne.
They had considered showing Jeffrey Byrne's picture to some of the bike tour workers, especially those volunteers manning the frequent rest stops where every biker would pass sooner or later.

Dean still managed to pick out eleven riders he considered could possibly be Jeffrey Byrne.
One minute he'd be drinking in the beauty of the countryside and the next feeling a wave of anxiety, realizing what had begun as a mild suspicion was close to culminating in a face-to-face confrontation with Jeffrey Byrne.
Aside from the anticipation of locating Jeffrey Byrne and the uncertainty surrounding it, Dean felt pretty damn good.
In spite of his lingering and totally unfounded doubts that it was Jeffrey Byrne he was pursuing, there were far too many coincidences pointing to Cynthia Byrne's husband.
Both recognized it as the same headgear Jeffrey Byrne was reported to have been wearing when he crossed the road to the beach in Norfolk.
Fred prattled excitedly about the Parkside newspaper and baseball cap and how the two finds represented proof Jeffrey Byrne was alive.
Dean remained silent for a moment, and then asked how well he knew Jeffrey Byrne.
It was unreal rocketing down this mountain, in pursuit of an unknown someone, one minute, surely Jeffrey Byrne, the next minute someone else.
It was six weeks today since Jeffrey Byrne's disappearance and ever since, Dean's world had revolved around that happening like a long-playing record.
I followed Jeffrey Byrne and you followed David Dean.
Where did you catch up to Jeffrey Byrne?
So you were just as happy to see Jeffrey Byrne get away with stealing it?
I want to talk to your Jeffrey Byrne.
Jeffrey's alive and he's here, isn't he?

This pamphlet elicited a beautiful and sympathetic letter from Lord Jeffrey.
After being educated at the high school of Edinburgh and at Durham, he attended the literary and law classes at the university of Edinburgh, and becoming in 1810 a member of the Edinburgh faculty of advocates, he for some time enjoyed the intimate acquaintance of Cockburn, Jeffrey, Scott and other distinguished men whose talent then lent lustre to the Scottish bar.
Its name was given to it in honour of General Jeffrey Amherst (1717-1797).
In Dean cemetery, partly laid out on the banks of the Water of Leith, and considered the most beautiful in the city (opened 1845), were interred Lords Cockburn, Jeffrey and Rutherford; " Christopher North," Professor Aytoun, Edward Forbes the naturalist, John Goodsir the anatomist; Sir William Allan, L Sam Bough, George Paul Chalmers, the painters; George Combe, the phrenologist; Playfair, the architect; Alexander Russel, editor of the Scotsman; Sir Archibald Alison, the historian; Captain John Grant, the last survivor of the old Peninsular Gordon Highlanders; Captain Charles Gray, of the Royal Marines, writer of Scottish songs; Lieutenant John Irving, of the Franklin expedition, whose remains were sent home many years after his death by Lieut.
Among these are Craigcrook Castle (where Lord Jeffrey spent many happy years, and the gardens of which are said to have given Scott a hint for Tullyveolan in Waverley), and Ravelston House, the home of the Keiths.
For this paper Chesterfield wrote under the name of " Jeffrey Broadbottom."
To Edinburgh is also due the first high-class critical journal, the Edinburgh Review, established in October 1802 by Jeffrey, Scott, Horner, Brougham and Sydney Smith.
In 1760 he was with General Jeffrey Amherst (1717-1797) at the capture of Montreal.
The chain machine has been largely developed in America in the Jeffrey, Link Bell, and Morgan Gardner coal cutters.
The first three numbers were, however, practically edited by Sydney Smith, and on his leaving for England the work devolved chiefly on Jeffrey, who, by an arrangement with Constable, the publisher, was eventually appointed editor at a fixed salary.
The period of Jeffrey's editorship extended to about twenty-six years, ceasing with the ninetyeighth number, published in June 1829, when he resigned in favour of Macvey Napier.
Jeffrey's own contributions, according to a list which has the sanction of his authority, numbered two hundred, all except six being written before his resignation of the editorship. Jeffrey wrote with great rapidity, at odd moments of leisure and with little special preparation.
The proceedings were stopped by the police, and Jeffrey's pistol was found to contain no bullet.
Jeffrey's wife had died in 1805, and in 1810 he became acquainted with Charlotte, daughter of Charles Wilkes of New York, and great-niece of John Wilkes.
When she returned to America, Jeffrey followed her, and they were married in 1813.
Before returning to England they visited several of the chief American cities, and his experience strengthened Jeffrey in the conciliatory policy he had before advocated towards the States.
Notwithstanding the increasing success of the Review, Jeffrey always continued to look to the bar as the chief field of his ambition.
Jeffrey was twice, in 1820 and 1822, elected lord rector of the university of Glasgow.
His parliamentary career, which, though not brilliantly successful, had won him high general esteem, was terminated by his elevation to the judicial bench as Lord Jeffrey in May 1834.
The Life of Lord Jeffrey, with a Selection from his Correspondence, by Lord Cockburn, appeared in 1852 in 2 vols.
Manchester, originally a part of Salem, was settled about 1630 and was at first known as Jeffrey's Creek.
The most important connexion was with Francis, Lord Jeffrey, still editor of the Edinburgh Review.
Though Jeffrey had no intellectual sympathy with Carlyle, he accepted some articles for the Review and became warmly attached to Mrs Carlyle.
In spite of support from Jeffrey and other friends, Carlyle failed in a candidature for a professorship at St Andrews.
Jeffrey, stimulated perhaps by his sympathy for Mrs Carlyle, was characteristically generous.
Carlyle's proud spirit of independence made him reject Jeffrey's help as long as possible; and even his acknowledgment of the generosity (in the Reminiscences) is tinged with something disagreeably like resentment.
In 1834 he applied to Jeffrey for a post at the Edinburgh Observatory.
Jeffrey naturally declined to appoint a man who, in spite of some mathematical knowledge, had no special qualification, and administered a general lecture upon Carlyle's arrogance and eccentricity which left a permanent sense of injury.
Among his pupils were Sir Walter Scott, Jeffrey, Cockburn, Francis Horner, Sydney Smith, Lord Brougham, Dr Thomas Brown, James Mill, Sir James Mackintosh and Sir Archibald Alison.
He was educated at the high school and the university of Edinburgh; and he was a member of the famous Speculative Society, to which Sir Walter Scott, Brougham and Jeffrey belonged.
The extent of his literary ability only became known after he had passed his seventieth year, on the publication of his biography of Lord Jeffrey in 1852, and from the Memorials of his Time, which appeared posthumously in 1856.
His influence, which grew during the 18th century in spite of the depreciation of Dr Johnson, has shared in the eclipse of the Queen Anne wits which began about the time of Jeffrey.
C. Jeffrey have recently shown that some Lower Cretaceous specimens of the well-known genus Brachyphyllum obtained from Staten Island, N.Y., possess wood of the Araucarian type.
Hollick and Jeffrey have recently added to our knowledge of the anatomy of Cretaceous FIG.

Now that Jeffrey Byrne was still among the missing, Leland Anderson promised to send someone to the Byrne residence to let Randy know the body in Norfolk was not his father.
Confusing a Wassermann twin with Jeffrey Byrne was inexcusable.
He seemed uncomfortable without the usual casket before him but was quite skillful in referring to Jeffrey Byrne's present status in sufficiently ambiguous terms as to not quite acknowledge Byrne was dead.

Better to stay away until the facts were knownâ€”or, hopefully, Jeffrey came in on the tide.
The date was April 7â€”the date Jeffrey Byrne was in Scranton!
Overwhelming evidence demonstrated it was totally out of character for Jeffrey Byrne to discard his world like yesterday's trash, and yet, piece by piece, the picture was emerging that he'd done just that.
They both agreedâ€”Dean still reluctantlyâ€”that the money was one more indication that Jeffrey Byrne was among the living.
Dean couldn't think of more than 20 namesâ€”Ethel Rosewater, Cynthia Byrne, David Dean, even Jeffrey Byrne, not to mention half of Arthur's gay friends and lovers and most of his ex-clients.

At first Dean didn't recognize the name but then remembered Fletcher Brunel as being the missing Norfolk employee of World Wide, one of the last people to speak with Jeffrey Byrne the day he disappeared.
Brunel answered that he'd just received the messageâ€”he'd been "on the road," and only recently learned Jeffrey Byrne drowned.
Jeffrey Byrne is dead and Brunel killed him.

Most of those associated in the undertaking were Whigs; but, although the general bias of the Review was towards social and political reforms, it was at first so little of a party organ that for a time it numbered Sir Walter Scott among its contributors; and no distinct emphasis was given to its political leanings until the publication in 1808 of an article by Jeffrey himself on the work of Don Pedro Cevallos on the French Usurpation of Spain.
The affair led to a warm friendship, however, and Moore contributed to the Review, while Jeffrey made ample amends in a later article on Lalla Rookh (1817).
