      Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer's surname is Jenifer. According to Bro. C. Edward Quinn in Roots of the Republic: The Signers of the Constitution of the United States (Danbury, CT: Grolier Educational, 1996. p. 70.), the origin of Jenifer's unusual given name is unknown but it appears frequently in his family. His ancestors included great-grandfather Captain Daniel Jenifer (1637-1692/3) who was a loyalist sheriff in Accomack County, Virginia during Bacon's Rebellion and who later moved to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, grandfather Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer (1672-1730), and father, Dr. Daniel Jenifer (ca.1699-1729). Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer had a brother named Daniel Jenifer (1727-1795) who himself had two sons, one named Daniel of St. Thomas who died unmarried and one Dr. Daniel Jenifer (1756-1809). Dr. Daniel Jenifer in turn had sons named Daniel of St. Thomas (1789-1822) and Col. Daniel Jenifer (1791-1855; Congressman and ambassador). This Daniel Jenifer also had a son named Daniel and one named Daniel of St. Thomas (1814-1843).
