<< James and Mary HAYWARD emigrated to the Cape Colony in 1820 aboard
the HMS Weymouth and settled near Salem. After the Fourth Frontier War,
in 1834, the HAYWARDs moved near the Winterhoek Mountains with their
eight children. Their third eldest son, George Nathaniel John, bought
the farm "Noorspoort" in 1863. The farm has been in the family ever
since. "My great grandfather, George Nathaniel HAYWARD, only had four
daughters. The eldest daughter's eldest son then inherited the
homestead," said Danie CRAVEN, grandson of his namesake, famous South
African rugby player and administrator "Doc" CRAVEN, as he was widely
known. George inherited the farm from 'Doc' CRAVEN in the early 1980s.

Vic, do you have any HAYWARD MI recordings for Steytlerville?
Oh, one more thing, I have also managed to obtain the book -
"Steytlerville se Onderons" by L. J. SCHOONEES, which I see you have a
copy. On pg. 221 there is a photograph of the Winterhoek Cricket Team.
Isn't this the Tom PATTERSON you have been looking for?
For those of you looking for links in Steytlerville, unfortunately there
is no index and mostly in Afrikaans, but I'm willing to look for further
leads. Just need somebody to translate from Afrikaans to English. Sorry
guys, just no time at the moment, but I hope to get back into the swing
of things soon.
