The GRO shows him born in 1868 and his birth was registered in Knaresbourgh, it does not give a mother's maiden name which suggests he was illegitimate. He is also with his grandparents in 1881. I would suggest his mother is either Jane or Eliza Jeff.

His birth certificate will confirm the name of his mother for you.
Hinchliffe - Huddersfield Wiltshire

He married on 5 Oct 1895 at Kildwick near Skipton to Elizabeth Ann  and gave his father's name as Robert Jeff occupation gardener deceased, which I think was his grandfather.

The GRO has reduced non-essential work at the moment so it may be some time before you get a birth certificate or a PDF of the birth registration.
