Charles, the enigma! Despite having lived in 'Natal for' some 68 years, except for some photographs, and brief memories by his remaining dp.scendants, I have been unable to trace anything concrete concer-njng Charles' contribution as one of South Airica's pioneers. Not even his handwriting!

CHILDREN (Ellen (adopted daughter) no detail known}

Perhaps Ellen and George, were over stric:t parents, or perhaps Ellen., was too fun loving or flighty .but she at some stage bec:ame a tramp and disappeared from sight. The belief is held that had. she laid c:laim to Ellen's e~tate. on her death she might well have been suc:c:ess ful in upsetting the c:onsiderable amount left to' various organisa tions and family members. Considered by the family to be 'a "c:anny sc:ot'" George was a weal thy man. Was manager of Steele 'and Murra.y in Pietermaritzburg and both Charles and Ann lived in' his home towards the end of their . . days. at 269 Princ:e Alfred Street, Pietermaritzburg. At a later stage George and Ellen had a home at Blac:kridge a few miles from the c:entre of town to whic:h he c:ommu t~d da~ly by train. On his retirement George and Ellen liv~d at Anerley, where he died, and Ellen then moved to Durban where she eventually passed away. Her anti Ca tholic: feelings are reflec:ted in her will of which I hold a c:opy. Very c:are1ul by nature Ellen, abhorred waste even to the extent of people using too muc:h wa ter in their ba th, despite the fac:t that she was not paying for the' water. .
