I will also be interested to at least discover who Leonard Thomas BUTLER's
(death date 4 May 1994) parents were as DN (Eastern Cape Master's Office),
signed by grandson N G Butler in Grahamstown on 18 May 1994, does not give
grandfather's age and notes "parents unknown".
Leonard Butler's wife Frances Caroline BARTLETT (div. Transvaal 1948) was
daughter of Frederick Johannes BARTLETT (grandson of Rev. John BARTLETT,
posted by London Missionary Society to Cape in 1812) & Lydia Helen BAYLY
(granddaughter of Lieut. Thomas Birt BAYLY [one of the lines I am following]
who arrived in the Cape 1830, first teaching at Worcester for a very short
while before settling in Clanwilliam).
Martha Magdalena BAYLY, an older sister Lydia Helen, married Frederick
Johannes Bartlett's brother John Henry BARTLETT.
I will mail you some charts off list.
If anyone on the list has connections with the BARLETT/BAYLY families, I
will appreciate them getting in touch.
