In this our first newsletter of the year we discuss amongst other things Settler Country. The article on Jeremiah Goldswain is an informed one, on the life of a settler arriving in Algoa Bay, covering the years 1819-1858. Try reading his Chronicle with an English Accent. An Obituary placed to a very special person, Val Trevorrow. A member of the EC Branch for nearly 30 years. One of the initial group of hand transcribers of headstones. There is also a piece on The First Colonial Chaplain to Port Elizabeth, the Rev Francis McCleland, the Fleming family, Anders Stockenstrom and an extract from the memoirs of Archdeacon A.T. Wirgman. A newsletter giving you an insight on Settler country, its trials and tribulations.
