Subject: [LON] Looking for COLBOURNE descendants
Date: Wed, 5 May 2010 22:28:11 +0200
Having just discovered new lines to my COLBOURNE tree, I wonder if anyone
has any connection to these names.
Joseph COLBOURNE born 1841 married Harriett BUSH born 1850 in 1869 in
They had seven children all born in Lambeth or St George Hanover Square from
1871 to 1893. The last daughter was Ethel Madelaine COLBOURNE and she
married Andries POTGIETER in 1919 and came to South Africa.
The other children were Mary Harriett married CANTLE, Helen Frances married
GARNISH, George Henry married FORSTER?, Florence Emma married CLOSE, Joseph
Alfred married MORGAN, Arthur Edwin married ALLEN.
If anyone has any links to these people, I would love to know.
Moyra Joyce born Potgieter
