Hello fellow listers,
I've had, what is hoped to be, a major
break through in one of the brick walls in my research! I have recently been
formed that a long lost ancestor, a certain Ellen Ann PITT (born 5 Feb 1864
in Grahamstown) has possibly come to light as the wife of Thomas Alfred
JAMIESON. Furthermore, the story goes that both Ellen and her brother George
PITT were orphaned!
I am descended from George PITT, but to the best of my knowledge, there has
been no record of George being a orphan. So, I am now wondering if there
would have been any official records kept in the 1800's and early 1900's for
orphaned children in the Eastern Cape, especially around Grahamstown and
surrounds? If so, where? Can anyone help?
I would also very much like to make contact with anyone researching the
JAMIESON family name from the Eastern Cape area who think they may possibly
be able to help.
If what I have been told is correct then it will a great deal to me in
finally re establishing family connections with this 'lost' branch of my
95 Fisher street
