South African Letters

These letters begin in 1850 and taper off in the 1870's finishing in 1888.

There are so many people listed that it would be worth a search by any family historian who had 'English' relatives living in the Cape Town, Prince Albert, Beaufort West, Port Elizabeth/Algoa Bay areas. There are many references to the Findlay and Meyer families, and anyone who is related to these two large families may find some interesting news to flesh out the dry bones of Births Deaths and Marriages records.

The people in these letters were related to the 'Dyason Party' who came out to South Africa from Kent, England in 1820, but they were not part of that first group.
