Miss Foxcroft - Victorian photo
« on: Monday 05 May 14 17:28 BST (UK) »
I have a Victorian photo, taken about 1875, of an unknown lady. Underneath the picture has been written in pencil Miss Foxcroft. Does anyone know who this could be? It is in an album owned by my family in the Eastern Cape in that era, and contains mainly photos of the Hulley, Cawood and Gradwell families.

I suspect you already know what follows, but just in case.

All I did was google Foxcroft and many sites came up. One which may be relevant (rootsweb) mentions Miss Maud Foxcroft marr. 29th December 1891. Outside your timescale but..........

Thanks Regorian. I'm hoping to link her to the families that I am researching as I have found all the pictures in the album were linked in some way.

There was a earlier post on this forum for Cawood by another lister. Wonder if they are any relation?
Hi,

I am seeking the ancestral line for:

Phillip Cawood
Birth: est. bef. 1945
Husband of Anna Pretorius
Father of John Edward Cawood

John Edward married Christina Maria Francina Kruger, b. 15 Nov 1916
Father of John Alan Cawood
The response to this was.
I have found this estate file in the National Archives but am not sure if it is your Anna Pretorius. If you wish to order copies of the file I suggest that you do it through eggsa.org.  If these are the correct full names of Philip and Anna do let us know as it makes searching for information a lot easier.

Hi, she is probably Margaret Cumberland Foxcroft who married Stephen John gradwell (both 1920 settlers to south africa).    And related/linked to the Hulley, Cawood families.  Stephens brother William (also a settler) married Elizabeth (betty) Cawood (whom he met on the ship and married 2 years after they arrived in the cape).

If you have any photos of the Gradwell boys and their families I would be delighted if you would share them.  Our family are directly descended from William Gradwell.

Thanks
Lorraine

Dear Lorraine
Thanks for the info. I have done some research on the Gradwells and will send it to you in the near future. Not sure if I have any photos of them but will check.
Regards

Hi, That would be amazing, thank you.  Our side of the family is scattered all over the world and not many stories remaining.
