Thank you for mentioning this. Although I am not researching the Trembath family in general, I am looking for information on James Farquharson Trembath who was born in Penzance, Cornwall in 1874 which is in close proximity to St Just in Cornwall, so there is a good chance of a link between the two of them. James Farquharson Trembath came to SA in 1897, three years later he settled at Kimberley, where he was a prominent Union leader associated with the Typographical Union and was later involved in the Labour movement in South Africa. He later settled in Durban, where he co-authored the book "A first account of Labour Organisation in South Africa", I am attempting to write a brief biography on him and would like to gather information on his immediate family. Although I am not related, he did have a close association with my family who were also involved in the Labour movement in the 1920's and 30's.
Please let me know if your friend has any knowledge of him, as any personal family information would add an interesting new dimension to the biography.
