and thanks for the offer.
Been looking for a proverbial needle in a haystack and s.k.s. suggested my
should perhaps focus prior to 1820.
Keith Meintjes first wrote some while back as follows:
"I notice that Edward Hall x Elizabeth Clark is in SA Genealogies Vol. 3 p.
40. Their son, Edward, was born in Grahamstown about 1844. It is possible
that both Edward and Elizabeth were children of 1820 settlers, born in South
I have photocopies of the Halls and Clark(e)s from Peter Philip's book -
could scan them for you, if you like. "

However I could not find a link to the Hall's listed in either Nash or
Hockley and subsequently was suggested that I look pre-1820. What I know
so far is that Edward and Elizabeth had 6 children, that Elizabeth died (no
date) and that Edward appears to have remarried an Elizabeth Skinner.

Any assistance or advice would be sincerely appreciated.
