Dorothy HANBURY-KING nee WHITEHEAD - Galton Lodge, Surrey
« on: Sunday 28 February 10 05:25 GMT (UK) »
Relatives of ours who migrated out to South Africa, where they are buried, were married in England.

My mothers maternal grandmother was Dorothy Hanbury Hanbury-King (born Whitehead - confirmed from detail obtained in the 1938 book The South African Woman's Who's Who).  She was born around 1870 in Galton Lodge, Surrey and her father was a John Dunstan Whithead of Barnjet, Kent

She died on 23rd July 1946 in Durban, South Africa aged 76 years. She married Frederick Thomas King.

From the Death Certificates of Frederick and Dorothy, it’s recorded that they were married in England.

Family folk law has it that Frederick Thomas King arrived in South Africa with the surname of only King, but on discovering that there were numerous King’s in the country, he decided to change his name to Hanbury-King. He is still recorded on the 1891 Census as living in Stockton, Wiltshire where he was still a "King". My great grandmother was born in 1901 in South Africa, so I assume that the change might well have happened soon after he got married, whenever that was!! I have not been able to confirm what name he arrived in South Africa as.

According to their death certificates, Frederick Thomas and Dorothy Hanbury-King had 8 children.

Would any Rootschatterer have any knowledge at all on Dorothy Whitehead??

thanks

Hi skylark

Thanks for the information you provided on Dorothy Whitehead - will add it to my notes.

These days it is more often that the wife takes on the name of her husband, however it seems that in this case Frederick Thomas took on Dorothy's and so it became a double-barrelled surname.

I will try and order a copy of the relevent certificates.

Since February, I have also been sent information from the 1881 census of the Whithead family headed by John D. so its seems to be jelling together slowly

much appreciated and regrads
