Some pictures would be nice-are these Boehm or something else like Albert? I would think they all would probably be from the early part of the 20th century. (I'd assume Boehm based on your post, but worth asking.)
For your Godfroys-do they look like this one?
The single post for the F#/C# and B/E keys dates that one as definitely pre-ww2, and probably from before the mid 30s. (There's a boxwood Godfroy clarinet I've seen for sale on the internet, so your clarinets definitely can be rather old.)
C Jeuffroy was a house brand of some kind from a music store in paris, according to what I've read-I've seen some made by a few different manufacturers, the most commonly referenced one I've seen on the internet us Noblet, but I've seen a metal one that was a stencil of a Bettoney. They also sold saxes from Pierret in the first half of the 20th century.
The latest instrument I recall seeing with a marking for pitch was a Conn high pitch alto saxophone from the 1940s, owned by someone in Australia, so your clarinets are probably from before then, unless they still kept marking L.P. after H.P. became very rare to see.
Your wraparound register Jeuffroy is probably the oldest-most of the wraparounds I've seen are from the 2 decades before and after 1900.
