I seem to recall reading somewhere about one of the Beltons taking part in the Jameson Raid. Going by memory, I'm sure it was Patrick. Will check my notes and see if there is anything more on the subject.

Googling the name with South Africa, I noticed there is a South African pro-mountain biker who happens to go by the name PATRICK BELTON....
