Very good question
My grandmothers brothers by adoption were railway engineers and went out there

I.must check dates they  were george and edward HALLIS

Also some of my Great  grandmother went on to marry edwin hume BENJAMIN 

Who wss born in london but bhas brothers and sisters  born either side of hin on SA ...one of his brothers is a similar age so i think.it may be a remarriage .they were jewish and the uncles were freemasons but on ancestry  there doesnt seem to be any south afriva section to search documents
