Presenting the 8th Volume in Shelagh O’Byrne Spencer’s Series: British Settlers in Natal 1824 – 1857

British Settlers in Natal 1824 - 1857Coming soon – the latest addition to Shelagh O’Byrne Spencer’s historical series, British Settlers in Natal 1824 – 1857: A Biographical Register Volume 8 Haigh–Hogshaw:

Since 1963, Spencer has been engaged in a massive research project to identify the emigrants who came to Natal from Britain before 1858, and to collect biographical material on them and their children. Although the work focuses on emigrants who came to settle in Natal, its interest and usefulness are not confined to this province.

For some of the new Natalians, and many of the next generation, moved on to the inland republics, to the Cape Colony or to Australia. Each of the entries contains biographical information, a list of the settler’s children and a list of sources. The biographies range in length from a few lines to several pages; the list of children includes the dates of their births and deaths and details of their marriages.

The series includes:

British Settlers in Natal: Vol 1 Abbott-Ayres
British Settlers in Natal: Vol 2 Babbs-Bolton
British Settlers in Natal: Vol 3 Bonde-Byrne
British Settlers in Natal: Vol 4 Cadle-Coventry
